    The cassette player in my 19 year old truck still works just fine and I can hear it even with the windows down at 70 mph. Can yours do that?

    Wow, I bet that doubled the value of your Pinto.

    The factory speakers in my Scion are just fine, thank you.

    The factory 10-speaker system in my Z4 does just fine, since it is a two seater the subs are aimed right at the back of the seats so you feel it. My F-150 had a good system for a factory system and my wife's Escape has the top of the line factory system and sounds pretty good.

    I just don't feel the need to build a system anymore if the factory one is good enough. I never went for SPL numbers anyway, I just prefer good sound quality.

    I wonder if the city would consider any noise ordinance when it comes to car stereo equipment? One the previous cities I lived in had something like that because people didn't appreciate being vibrated apart at stop lights. So they past the ordinance and before you knew it those people were being pulled over, fined, and equipment ripped out of their car and confiscated. It was so nice and peaceful.

    If I'm not mistaken OKC does have a noise ordinance dealing with car stereos. And if I remember correctly it states that you should not be able to hear it (the stereo) from outside of 50'. Again I may be mistken but I think I remember seeing something on the news about this not to long ago. Whether the law is enforced is obviously an issue if there is one.

    Oh yes. It's enforced too. Especially in Warr Acres.

    Of course, with all my gear, I still roll around mainly listening to the A.M. right wing talk. (with the subs disabled). When on the road, we'll watch a DVD and it sounds like the old sensaround theatre setup.

    it's 50' pretty much anywhere i've asked. i actually got a ticket for it when i was in high school. they said i was rattling the windows inside hardees (the owners) and called me in so they were waiting for me next time around

    I did in high school and college.

    Decided not to go that route on the new car.

    Ive got couple of 15's and a 1600 watt amp, 4 infinity kapa speakers, but i was running it all thru a capacitor, which broke down, and I just can't be bothered putting any more money into it.

    The Lexus has surround and video for the kids, My vette has Bose. all factory of course.
    My son keeps pretty good beat, the drum lessons are apparently working.
    so if he is riding we have beats.
    went to the store and bought beets once in the car but I assume that is not the same thing.

    capacitors are a scam!

    Well, there are a few schools of thoughts on the scam of capacitors. There are some that do a good job, and some that don't.

    Industrial strength full line voltage capacitors work as advertised, by cutting the harmful peak inrush current by storing energy like a battery.

    The car audio capacitors are generally weak, undersize and not necessary. About the best that they're going to do is to cut a little bit of current in rush from eating up (shortening the life) of your alternator. The good ones will sometimes provide a nice 14.4 voltage supply to your equipment thru auto transforming, due to the voltage drop inherent in a LV DC system. Don't install one thinking it's going to make your gear hit harder, install one to prolong the supporting vehicle gear last longer.

    They also make a nice central point of power and grounding point.

    I have one, and recommend them based on the above. Your ear won't notice, but your car will.

    Yeah, I know how they work and the proper ways to hook them up but I bet 90% of the people who buy the 1/2 Farad capacitor at wal-mart to make their subs beat harder are getting scammed.

    You dont need that crap a good AM/FM car radio is sufficient. I hate people who intrude on my space with there loud music, makes me wish i was a cop so I could write them a big ticket and then rip the dam thing out of there car and say grow up boy.

    nothing wrong with "grown ups" having a nice stereo. I don't blast mine around neighborhoods but I definitely couldn't stand to listen to a stock AM/FM car radio. I guess I have different sound quality tastes.

    I'd like to ask a meaningful question, one which perhaps DaveSkater addressed with his detailing his use of his setup---

    Do any high-end car stereo enthusiasts (especially those with well-driven subwoofers) ever use them moderately, that is, to reproduce bass not at extremes but to the level normally heard when hearing acoustic instruments in person, giving treble frequencies greater presence when called for? Is there a trend like this among, say, audiophiles?

    A radio is a radio one is as good as another get over it. You dont need to have the radio turned up very loud anyway it is a safety issue you need to be able to hear cars and emergency vehicles around you. Music isnt the main thing, I think they should make car radios with volume limiters to only go so loud and thats it. A lot of you kids are going to loose your hearing from having those dam radios turned up so loud. whats the since in it other than to bother people and have them talking about how stupid and immature you are.
