I'm thinking about upgrading my car stereo eventually from the factory one ('96 Explorer with premium JBL sound). However, the noise level in my Explorer is VERY loud. I really don't think it would be worth upgrading from my already decent system if I can't hear the difference:
1. Engine noise: The V8 is quite loud, but I don't mind it so much now, especially since the other things are so loud.
2. Vibration: The entire car vibrates a lot over 30 mph or so, so 2/3 of the time, I have something making a racket somewhere in the car.
3. Road Noise: Quite load, but is there anything I can do?
4. Wind Noise: This would probably be the most annoying to me and probably the single loudest thing in the car. It primarily comes from both front side windows.
If anybody has any suggestions about improving any of these areas, I would be very grateful,
