They forgot to put the car on Isoacoustics :grin:


These car systems are reminiscent of the Grateful Dead’s “Wall of Sound” circa 1974.

I don’t get it, I’ve never had any interest in car audio, only home audio.

A good friend owned a car stereo shop and was part of the SPL car wars. Nothing to do with recording quality just how loud you could make it inside the car. I think he made 140 db if I remember right. It was crazy to see the car jump from the music (pun) being played. I have owned a few nice car stereos and done right they do sound good. The new OEM car stereos are pretty darn good without adding anything to them though.
