Thanks, that’s enough, please

So, went to Best Buy and bought a new system for the Honda. I oficially spent more money on car stereo than I think I can gte for the car.

But it sounds so goooooooooood

Dual 10″ Sony Subwoofers w/Sony Amp & Box (on special)
Front and Rear Rockford Fosgate speakers
Kenwood Amp for the internal speakers
All new cables for the above

It sounds *NICE*. I mean *NIIIICE*. But I’m afraid to turn it up past about 20 – I think it’s too loud.

( is laughing at me about that right now *grin*)

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Nice stereo. Better than I’ve got. I don’t turn my car stereo up past about 4, maybe 5 bars (max I believe is ten bars) because it’s too loud. But then I wear earplugs at a lot of concerts.

    The MP3 portion of this desk looks really, really nice. I’ve been RTFM’ing this evening, and wow, does this thing have a lot of options.

    I’m usually not this timid, but (a) I’m afraid the *CAR* can’t take the subs much higher than about 18, and (b) My *HEAD* starts to feel the pain at about 20.

    I *THINK* 20 is about 50% of max.

    And I found myself thinking “what a waste” when I had tuned to NPR on the way home. *grin*

    Seriously though, I can entirely relate. I see nothing wrong w. putting a 2 grand system in a Yugo, when it comes to that. If it’s the sound you’re after, that’s what you should focus on.

    And the true measure of quality is the fidelity and “depth” of sound, not the volume. So don’t sweat it if you don’t want to make your ears bleed.
