    Can we agree that most pa setups in cars sound like shit? Just because you have seen or done it right does not make it the norm.

    Anyway op hopefully you are happy with your setup, and if you are then who cares what everyone else thinks.

    It's the norm for me. And yes I've heard some horrible PA set ups. I've also heard horrible comp set ups, coax's, and factory speakers. Does that mean ALL speakers are bad

    Yes all speakers ****, that was my point.....

    In the end it's not really about the equipment it's about the install and application. Almost anything can sound good it's just about how you use it, which again I'll say that most people using pa gear in cars are not doing it right.

    Actually you could make a very good case for that. The inherent inefficiency and distortion, uneven dispersion of sound.... Most of them are messy enough in an anechoic chamber.
