SPL Format: Bass Boxing
Bass Boxing is IASCA’s most popular SPL format, designed to bring musicality and showmanship back to SPL competition.
In Bass Boxing, competitors face off against each other in a Qualifying Round; the top two competitors from the Qualifying Round move on to the three round “Title Fight” for their class.
The top two (2) competitors then “duke it out” for three (3) “title fight” rounds; each round tests the systems ability to play music at extreme volume levels without breaking down.
Pride is the European champion of 2017 in BassBoxing NHB and IDBL Ulimate.
Each round offers a different challenge; in the first round, competitors must close all doors on the vehicle and play the system for 30 seconds. In the second round, the driver’s side front door of the vehicle is opened and the same test is performed. In Round 3, both front doors of the vehicle are opened and once again, the test is performed
In all Rounds, competitors can play musical tracks of their choice (from a commercially available CD – must be approved by the event Judges); the track is played for 30 seconds; the highest average decibel level (SPL) achieved during the time period is recorded in the Qualifying Round and determines the top two qualifiers.
In the three round final match, all three rounds are measured for a 30 second average, same as in the Qualifying Round. The highest average score achieved in each round is then recorded individually. The competitors’ individual scores from each round are then added together and divided by three for their average SPL score over the 3 rounds; the competitor with the highest average SPL score for the three rounds is declared the winner.
