Hey guys, not with the offensive tone or what but I am just curious why so many of you
invest sooo much money in hi quality, expensive, low-noise in-car sound system.

Haven't it crossed in your audiophile heads that as long as you are driving on the BUSY road you can
almost and surely NEVER get to enjoy/realize the bells and whistles of your high fidelity audio system?

Whenever we are driving, we hear the car engine running, the air-cond blowing, tyres rolling on the tar,
motorcycle zooming past, and of course your creaking car frame.

With all these kinetic noises buzzing around us, who can tell the difference between an reasonable SNR entry-level head unit
from high SNR competition-level offerings from Alpine or Pioneer??

Give it a second thought. STUPID OR WHAT!?

I WANT EVERYONE TO COME AND PROVE ME WRONG!! mad.gif vmad.gif

And you must be saying this to save your face from the disgrace of investing thousands of ringgits you put into
your SQL system.

C'mon. Be real, guys. Admit it. The only moment you were convinced you bought alpine/pioneer instead of brand XYZ is when you
parked your car in the garage at night when the neighbourhood is sleeping.

I can assure there is no time in ur hectic life u actually go anal about ur sound systems unless if brand XYZ is so poor that the CD skips.
Better save all that money for real hi-fi audio at home in ur bedroom.

i have no high end ICE...used to put have 6 speaker only front and rear...

on basshunter song, cant hear outside world already...enjoyed it at traffic light...and also when slow moving traffic...even keep me awake driving at nite...

cant see any waste there...

cant imagine either if i invest a few more K to upgrade....must be very good...

TS...it's like choosing ur life partner...what's best for u sometime is never best for others....what's best for others is sometime never best for u..

having high loaded ICE might not give u a kick...but it doped some people out there

This.

I'd rather spend it on performance part. Good quality speakers are more than enough for me.

why not? i listen to my audio, and i dont listen to the noise from outside. problem? wwwww
and no, i dont really hear car engine/air con/tyre rollin/motorcycle zooming past (unless its those faggots that modded their exhaust to sound like a freakshow) etc

btw, alpine/pioneer are only good on the HU (unless ur buying high end alpine/pioneer speakers/woofers, and then again, there are better choices elsewhere)

done, proven you wrong. /thread

That's only true when u spin the vol knobs to eleven, or you're suffering from mild hearing loss.
Fidelity is when the system has low THD and high SNR.
Sound good or not in ur car, that depends on the equlizer.

So if I get a moderately good entry-level system and a moderately good 7-band equalizer, then I get a Great sounding system (with everything else being good). True?

I guess it is just one man's passion. I mean if you look at all the big boy's toys, most of them doesn't really make sense but they cost a huge bomb.

e.g. Its like buying a Ferrari and all you do is drive it around 100km a month with it. A kancil will bring you from point A to B but arguments is that its not the destination that is important but the journey.

The same goes for those who feel that investing in hi-fidelity systems are worth it, it doesn't matter if you hear that extra cymbal from the percussionist, its the entire experience that they want.

Everyone is made differently, each have our own likes and dislikes. And most of the time, most of our likes and wants, may not even make sense.
