Ok.

Running speakers out of phase will blow them. From a local shop here.

You want 10" subs for rock, 15" subs for rap. And 8" subs for sound quality. From same local shop.

Kicker subs sound better for rap, while memphis and rockford subs sound better for rock. Same local shop.

You wont hear the peaks and dips in music without a cap. Same local shop.

Oh yeah, said local shop is California Car Stereo.

Ugh, I hate the word Phase.. POLARITY.

They are right, Wire each VC in a DVC sub out of polarity till you hear a booming sound. You won't hear shit, you will smell smoke.

So they took THAT and assumed it as gospel. But in reality, if you are flipping POLARITY on any Speaker that has a wavelength in it's passband longer than the interior of the Car can develop, you are shooting yourself in the foot, they may not blow up, but you will have a hell of a hole.

Good point on polarity vs phase. Blame the P99 for my liberal use of the word phase. I used to say polarity.

Their exact words were more like, "if you Wire the speakers backwards you will blow them up and damage your amp". Told a friend that years ago about his Focal mids when he said he would install them himself.

The absolute best thing I've ever heard was this: a hot ass blond walks into the shop. She goes into the demo room and starts tapping onto the subs. After a dew minutes she proclaimed rather loudly that one of the subs was going to be the loudest. Because of the way the tap sounds. Her bf bought it. It was one of the cheaper low end subs we carried. Street edge made by Memphis. While not crap, they aren't the loudest.

I'm sure we have similar experiences. The redeeming quality is I get some low volume JL stuff at or near dealer cost. Ive gotten good at smiling and nodding at whatever crap I'm told when I'm there. I've been going to the same place since '95. The owner's son is starting to run the place and he's really into sq and very well educated. They're beginning to carry some really nice product now so there's hope. The rest of the stores around here are beyond help.

Default Re: **Stupidest thing anyone has said to you (audio wise)**

Sorry this is a bit long but it's my favorite encounter with the dumb I've ever had.

My friend was designing an inventory computer system at a local pawn shop and called me one day asking if he could refer a girl to me who just bought a bunch of stuff and needed it installed.

She came over later that afternoon and pulled up in this beat up Chevy celebrity wagon. She said she bought some stuff that she wanted me to hook up for her.

She started by showing me the no name 500x2 amp she bought. Looking at the amp it was about 7x5x1 and weighed about 3lbs and had a single 15 amp fuse. Yeah...500x2 my butt.

I then asked what else she had. She opened up the hatch and it was full of pawnshop special sub/tweeter horn boxes. The ones with the black paper cones and yellow foam surrounds. She had 4 with 2 15's, 6 with 2 12's 6 with 2 10's and in the back seat she had 4 more of the 2 15's

She said she didn't care how the equipment was configured as long as it was
1) F****N loud
2)The enclosures in the back seat had to be secured so they wouldn't fall over on the baby seat.

I looked at her and said I don't think these will do what you are expecting.

She got really mad and said that I obviously don't know what I'm talking about because her boyfriends blazer has the same stuff and you can't hear the exhaust over the music.

I let her grab the ICP cd out of her Car and let her sit in my sc2. I shut off the sub amp switch and let her listen sub less for and showed her the switch to flip when she wanted more bass.

I told her to listen as loud as she wanted to. She sat in there for about 15 min before she flipped the switch.
When she got out she said that the switch turned off was louder than her boyfriends blazer but with it on she had never experienced anything like that.

She seemed a little miffed when I told her I only had 8's in the doors.

I asked her what she thought I had in the trunk. She said probably 2 15's and 4 12's or 10's.(again with the mix and match)

I opened the trunk and she saw nothing. Nothing at all...I started removing trim panels showing her 2 old school 10" kicker comps in a 1.5 cuft box built against the back seat then removed the side cover to reveal the 300 watt RF amp.

She was freaking out because she bought double what her boyfriends blazer had in it expecting it to be way louder than his.

I offered to help her out. She took everything back to the pawn shop and surprisingly they let her return them since they were brand new and only gone for about an hour. I was shocked though to find that she spent over $500 on this shitty equipment.

I helped her pick put a pair of 15" punch subs, a MMATS 500 watt amp and then took her to a local audio shop to get Power Wire and a decent cd player, then to the lumber yard to get some MDF. With all that equipment and supplies she wasn't even over $450.

She came back the next day and I had a box built for the subs and had the install done in about 2 hours.

She loved it.

She even referred her boyfriend to me for a system overhaul after he heard how it sounded.

Another common thing in Omaha too is the multiple 15's with 3000 watts rattling trunks like crazy and blown stock speakers struggling to keep up. I love that.

do any of you guys have the people that run like 6 EV speakers on their trunk lid with no name 18 inch dj subs and bullet tweeters built into the box with lanzar amps and 400 watts to each pyle coaxial Speaker up front? i mean no offense when i say this but the town over from me is more on the "Dominican" side.. every single Dominican person i know from around here that has a system has one like this. I've actually had a person tell me that this is a "Dominican only" style and that he and a few friends invented this "style" back in DR a while back.. so stupid i cant even

Saw a friend of my son's in town a couple weeks ago. Has an entire BOSS system in his car. He had duct tape on his front windshield in about 6 places. My son asked him what's the tape for, and his reply: "It keeps the windshield from blowing out onto the hood. It bangs so hard". 3000 watts of BOSS Power at work............

All new BOSS. Probably 300 watts actual if that. He had it cranked up as far as it would go, distortion included. I understood every word he said from my driver's seat in the left lane and he was in the right lane.

We saw him later at the gas station. My son and I had just finished putting in the front speakers, CD player, and amp for the front in his truck. My son was very proud of his work as I insisted that he do most of it and that I would teach him how to do it right. He looked it over and said that "Massive audio is flea market stuff and that the stock speakers were better", as well as "That CD player is junk if you need to run an amp to your front speakers. All you need to hear is the BOOM", and to top it off "That Boston Accoustics amp wouldn't push one of my subs, much less front speakers". He saw the tweeters mounted with Velcro, as we are experimenting with locations before we flush them up and started laughing at them.

We put in a Pioneer DEH 9400BH, Massive audio RK6's and a Boston Accoustics GT2200. Junky stuff indeed.

My son told him to F**k off. My thoughts exactly.

I know that one all to well. Except it isn't always infinity. Sometimes its older MB Quarts.

Something else I have never been able to figure out, Is why people INSIST on turning the base and treble all the way up.

This wasn't said to me but I was nearby.
A guy was selling CDs of his group at a bass competition and told one of my friends to buy his CD. He said, "You can really feel the quad"
WTF does that mean?

I like building stuff. I'm not very good at it but I enjoy it.

I too have heard the saying about bass not being as damaging...we had a guy who came to shows in Omaha that could tell you how loud your Car was. He was usually pretty close but he was deaf as all get out.)

i forgot of one i heard somewhere. a guy told us we wouldn't get the right eskques if we didn't remove our RCA's before a meet and hang them upside down so the electrons could stop pooling up.

also remember reading a website about a recording studio ran out of the house where the guy only uses 8 track. unplugs everything in the house since the refridgerator causes noise in the electrical system. and records everything in the dark. He also sold some paste to rub on cds to make them sound better infinitely.

A Co-worker and I were debating the best way to fit the proper size box for my ID8s in the limited space available in my truck.

Another co-worker overhears the conversation, and decides to put his 2 cents in. He explained that I should just go on over to the Home Depot, buy some 5/8 plywood (the cheapest available), make a box that will have enough mounting room (no concept of proper volume) and call it good.

Then he added, and if you want those things to really bang, just cut you some holes in the box about (makes about 2.5" circle with his hands)...then those suckers would sound good.

When I tried to explain to him that I wanted to ensure I had the optimal volume, etc. He informed me he was just a po' ole country boy, and thats how they did it.
