first off im an old timer, 60 years old. i go way back on car stereos. back to when the newest pioneer setup was a pioneer HU with separate amplifier. that pioneer was still push buttons for channel, but was a deck, no internal amp. and for speakers there were only 6" X 9"s but they were some really outrages 6" X 9"s. im talking about early 70,s. sound quality was just as good as today but pretty much only had a EQ for setting your tones. well after 30 years i finally bought a new setup, sony cdxgt650ui. tech. has come a long way. ive always been a music fanatic. ill be reading posts to learn as much as i can about the new system setups and how there setup for best results. my system isnt anything special, couple of 6.5" pioneers in my front truck doors and a couple of JL Audio 8" subwoofers behind my seat, each with there own amps. HU cdxgt650uiw. ive mostly been getting my music, free, off beemp3.com, load it onto a flash drive and use that on my stereo. anyway just saying Hi.

guess i kinda of asked for that. guess thats why im getting back into a nicer and louder sounding truck stereo, better, and cheaper, than a hearing aid.

Who the hell would buy a hearing aid when they could just have a better system!

Or that we can afford fuel to drive them and/or that systems arent illegal...

lol. just like there starting to outlaw loud pipes on bikes there next thing will be sound db,s coming form cars. in fact there working on a dual gun, point it and it measures speed and db coming form exhaust and sound systems. there always headphones, but for the exhaust, well havent thought about that solution.

With enough deadener and bracing you can really reduce the amount of sound coming from a vehicle, take those 180+db vehicles that sound like a slight buzz when they are burping lol.

welcome. Its neat seeing someone so old into quality music. I know I will be, but you just dont see it all that much. I recommend going to DIYMA.com's forum if you are in for SQ. If you are trying to have extremely loud bass....this is the place IMO. I learned a lot more about staging, eqing, t/a, etc over on DIYMA. Granted, there are a few SQ people over here that know there stuff, its a lot less slim pickins over there.
