    Icon32 Your Car's Sound System: What do you do when your finished?

    What do you do when the audio gear bought has all been thrown in your car, and you've got nothing left on the check list?

    Do you start over? Do you leave your system alone to enjoy until you blow a sub? Keep it for a season? Do you swap amps or speakers out individually and use the gear you're familiar with as a reference?

    Re: Your Car's Sound System: What do you do when your finished?

    When I was young (16-22~) I used to change it out frequently. Alot of my money went into making my car stupid loud so the honeys would think I was fly, It didn't work. They just thought "who does that fat kid in the corrola with the backwards hat think he is? Black?". So then I decided i'm just going to buy used equipment off fags on car audio forums. It's worked out great thus far.



    But to answer your question, never. If a person is truly into car audio there will always be upgradeing, downgrading, switch from spl to sq or vice versa.

    You look for the "weak link" in your system, weather it be electrical or mids/highs, and you work on that. Should keep you going for ever like that, there is ALWAYS something that could be better.

    Re: Your Car's Sound System: What do you do when your finished?

    I don't think my system would have ever been finished if I hadn't found some other expensive hobbies. I haven't spent any money on it in a long time. After 11 years of doing this sh*t I think I finally have the equipment and set up I've always wanted.

    Until the install is prefect you will never be done. Some people may run the same equipment but, always be switching around the way it was installed. When chasing numbers the substage will never be done and it will never be loud enough.
