    In general yes, home audio is light years ahead of car audio, there's the right drivers for the right enclosures.

    lmao stop giving out your opinion.. 100watts is 100watts.. the voltage/amperage that gets you there is what differs in a home vs car

    Look at the fs (resonant frequency spec) of pro speakers, where a car audio sub would spec say 30hz a pro sub would be over 50hz.

    Same with pro mids, car mids can spec at 35-60hz, pro mids can be over 100hz.
    Pro audio speakers are made just fine.. its the retards who use them incorrectly that give them a bad name.. those specs are not relevant and shows how little you actually know.. pro audio speakers were meant to be put in enclosures not tinfoil doors..

    wrong again.. CLEAN CLEAR yadda yadda get people all mixed up.. Clear relates to distortion.. just because a speaker is not distorting does not mean it is CORRECTLY reproducing the material at hand.. You can get pro audio speakers to produce midbass.. but people purchase MIDRANGE speakers and expect the world.. for those that want midbass purchase MIDBASS..

    All around.. not just general.. The market for home audio is 10x+ bigger than that for car audio so more stuff is made

    Re: car audio vs pro audio speakers

    Also to answer the op.. If you have ever been to a club or ever watched a dj work they are constantly tweaking the EQ for EVERY song and multiple times for each song.. that is to keep the pro audio speakers sounding good and keeping em from going poof..

    This is true. I don't see the point in spending $5k on speakers and putting them in a tin can. With that money, I will buy decent home audio speakers.

    Even the best car audio speakers are medium level home audio drivers.

    You think Focal offers the same speakers to car audio they sell to Wilson Audio? Even $6k Utopia Be is a step down. Listen to some MAXX-3 speakers and you'll understand. I haven't even heard Alexandria, at $100k each. Car audio is a hobby, and I am very realistic.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    This neglects the difference between rating methods, and any distortion. Input != Output on every amp ever made. Nothing is an ideal amplifier.

    Though the post you quoted doesn't make sense. I can share pics of what a 150Wx2 home audio amp looks like....

    that. I don't understand how someone has perfect answers in every situation. KHA and Holic never cease to amaze me. probably never lose arguments...except with women...we all lose those....even when we're right

    Spend a few decades answering car audio questions, spend the better part of a decade as an EE consultant, and be objective.

    Women are stupid. You can win any arguement with a women if you don't let logic get in the way. Ignore logic when dealing with women. Focus on feelings.

    Re: car audio vs pro audio speakers

    ok cool so after fitlering out the blah blah and fighting I from what I get the PA/ Home audio speakers are superior in design and quality, but sound reproduction is limited to the platform in which it is installed. correct me if Im wrong but basically if the vehicle is deadened properly and the sound stage is setup correctly for the vehicle there is always going to be a better sounding PA speaker $ for $ than the car audio has to offer. that being said with out spending the time in money in proper deadening even to the point of over kill installing PA speakers would be a waste. On a side note I have read keep hope alives entire 27 page build log on sound domain and the dude knows his stuff, great job man. thanks guys

    Pretty much

    Build the car around the sound system, use non-car audio speakers. Retrofit speakers into the car, use car audio. T/S parameters are vastly different.

    I love Dynaudio speakers. I would rebuild the car around them, or enjoy them more in my house.
