Re: Your Car Audio System

also, i think it is at 148dB at freqs lower than 25 hz your blood starts to coagulate. (plasma and blood cells begin to separate) this is what causes severe bruising in corpses. after 12 hours (i think) of being dead your blood is nearly completely separated. soundwaves are capable of doing it in 3 minutes.

Re: Your Car Audio System

Now, I've also heard that loud, low tones do not effect the human ear like high pitched sounds do. I do notice that I can handle loud bass more over loud mids and highs.

Re: Your Car Audio System

our ears are more sensative at around 2-3khz than sat 30hz. 120db of 2khz is going to sure annoy the hell out of us more than 150db at 30hz

Too bad it can't be "loud" cuz you literally can't hear it.

Re: Your Car Audio System

For right now i have 2-12" polk gnx-12 or something like that there like 8 years old in a shitty sealed box. I have a profile ca 400m running at 2 ohms at half power between 75-100 watts, and i can kill a dual 12 audiobahn with 1000 watts. Front stage i have 2-4x6 2 way mbquarts and rear i have 2-6x9 mb quarts running with a ca 640 its the beater system from hell. I have the good shit in the works right now.

Don't ever look at cars as just imports or domestics. Just because a car is made in a certain country doesn't mean that it is anything like another car from that country. An example of this is Mitsubishi reliability, just because they are Japanese doesn't mean that they are as reliable as a Honda or Toyota.

HU's - Panasonic
Subs - AF guys got me obsessed with Adire and RE
Amps - Prolly Kicker
Speaker's - Kind of undecided but also Kicker, I can't say that I've personally heard too many, except Kicker's top of the line components, and they are crisp.

Since you cannot have a stereo system without a cd player I'll just vote for Pana.

my car has a Clarion stereo (well, a radio only), and 2 Clarion 4in speakers (about 2 watts each)

it's the original stereo, from the factory, back in 1982.

i know it should probably be in a museum
