I'm in awe of the last few posts with people intentionally making their trunks rattle. I guess it shouldn't be that much of a surprise, 99% of the youtube videos are of trunks rattling and excursion or "flexing" lol.

Flexing is one thing, it's gotta be loud to flex... But rattles? Yeah, people are crazy.

I've been told to keep my Speaker wires the same lenghts. If the left side is longer, it wont fire the same time as the right. Cause you know that extra .0000002 seconds it takes to travel those extra few feet really makes a difference.

There may be a lot of obnoxious, distorted, bass-heavy systems on the road but nothing is more annoying than high-pitched gangsta rap projected down the street at 110 db.

Motorcycles are almost as bad, but at least that is somewhat understandable compared to the noise of the bike itself.
There were two guys driving back and forth through the crowd this year at Texas Heat Wave in a Donk with a PA setup blaring. That is one of the most annoying things I have seen/heard in Car audio.

Back when Good Guys was still around here in SoCal I went in to look at an Eclipse deck. I always like to ask stupid questions just to see what kind of response I would get. The young sales guy was talking about RMS vs Peak so I asked him what RMS stood for. He told me it was "Real Music Sound". "You know, none of that distortion and stuff".

Priceless!

the best audio cables that I've ever heard are made in the Swiss Alps by naked virgins and are soaked in Yeti Sperm for 4 days.... Amazing! totally worth the $10k/ft price tag...

lol A guy I know told my friend that his subs where "catching too much air" because they where firing upwards towards his hatch... I found this hilarious because the guy is a great mechanic, he owns a ridiculously powerful boosted Civic, but apparently he doesn't know jack about audio.

This same guy chimed in when I was talking to my buddy about metering your system and stuff. I got to talking numbers and he says to us that his two JL audio 13W7s and a JL 1000.1 hit 160dB...


These are the same W7s that blew his first prefab box apart, only to be replaced by another prefab box that sounded even worse. I knew the guy he bought the subs from and they sounded INCREDIBLE in a custom sealed box in a new Altima coupe.

That sounds pretty damn ghetto. I've luckily never seen/heard that. My guess would be that it's a southern thing. No offense to anyone, just the vibe I get from it.

The best one is on youtube videos when they are like "heres how loud my system is" instead of filming from the front or seating area they film the rattly trunk.

Unless you are flexing glass and sheet metal, there is no need for anyone to be filming their system. IMO.
