    So is it cool now

    Is it cool to have stupid, retardedly, distorted PA doors now? Has our beloved hobby turned into who can make the most noise no matter what it sounds like?

    Discuss.

    Some times it doesn't matter, if you can get it loud and sound good people will run whatever it is.

    I'm talking cheap pa. People around here have never really done this. I get it if you have a 155 sub stage. I'm talking the doors are overrunning everything by a lot

    My buddy had some PA's underneath his Altima back in high school. Used to ride around blaring police sirens. Good times.

    No, it's cool to have stupidly loud and good sounding PA stuff in your doors. And it's the only thing that keeps up VERY loud bass.

    Although I will agree that 99% of the PA stuff I've heard sounds like total ***, but I run it in the daily, wife's ride, and the demo set up and have NEVER had a person say it sounds bad in any way.

    x2 he either had very crappy mids or had it set up wrong. I'd go with the latter as most people have no idea how to set up xovers/slopes and power them properly.

    Anytime you want to hear a real PA set up let me know as I do several shows in WI each year...
