Makes me want to jump out of the Car while it's moving when I'm riding in these people's vehicles.
I don't get it? I thought when people say they use eq, it means that they use it to make everything louder.

I meant, when people just simply boost every EQ band to the top, it's annoying. Don't they know volume knobs raise all the frequencies volume equally?

Hey! I just thought of a stupid audio-related song lyric!

I'm-a show you some shit, rookie... press that button.
The trunk went *ehh-ehh*, and all of a sudden...
Four fifteens - didn't see no wires!
And then I heard BOOOOM from the amplifiers.


...amplifiers don't make noise

I also must confess that I fussed over the punctuation

...and used smileys in lieu of periods to end both of the previous phrases.

A tech at Eclipse told me he used an oscilloscope and a RTA to measure time alignment.

I was like, that doesn't make sense. Are you seriously telling me you used an oscilloscope and a RTA to measure time alignment? (I thought maybe he misspoke). I think I even asked him a third time if he was sure that's what he meant to say.

I asked him to explain how he did that and he brushed me off and told me he didn't have to explain it to me.

Awesome. You're a fucking retard.

I just read this on SMD forum with regards to an infinite baffle setup.

"Personal experience... DO NOT POINT THAT MONSTER AT THE TRUNK LID!! Haha your trunk will hate you and it will knock the hinges out-of-level. And if you were to face it towards the rear, it would indeed destroy the trunk lock. Firing forward would be the best way to go in my opinion, getting a design for the baffle and using the airspace as best you can will be a little tricky. "

At least it won't destroy anything important if you point it forward towards the driver.

Any advice as to which way I should avoid pointing the amplifier?

Just make sure the electron stream isn't pointing at the headunit. It'll cause some kind of vortex and your Car will turn into a pulsar. Or was it that the amp will go supernova? Idk, I don't feel like searching right now.

Conversation I had with a coworker (who's kind of a know it all).

Coworker: What, are you on Craigslist or something?

Me: No, it's a Car audio forum.

Coworker: What's that?

Me: Do you know what a forum is?

Coworker: yes

Me: Do you know what Car audio is?

Coworker: yes

Me: Well this is a forum for car audio.

Coworker: Oh so it's like a chat room where people talk about stereos?

Me: Basically

Coworker: That's pretty cool.

Me: Yeah, there are some very knowledgable people on here. I really learn a lot. This forum is more centered towards sound quality installs and not the usual loud bass, spl type systems.

Coworker: Yeah, I know what your talking about like ohms and stuff.


Facepalm...

I need to know MAX Power ratings because I want to be sure my sony subs will be ok. They're rated for 1500 watts each so I should be ok.
