1980-something Plymouth Turismo (with the pos 1.6L Peugot motor)... Clarion Pull-out... Blaupunkt 4" surface mount speakers in the hatch, Infinity 5 1/4" in the doors, Sansui amp bridged mono to a pair of hideous 8" Pyle subs... Tiny 4x20w Alpine amp on the fronts and rears...

Life was so much simpler then....

1983 Camero Z28
Kenwood 3.5" coaxiale in dash with speaker level frequency limiters.
Bose 2-way metal enclosed speaker system under each front seat, sitting at front of seat, firing forward, with speaker wire capacitors limiters.
Altec Lancing 6x9's in rear sides.
AR home speakers (tweet and 10") on rear deck, firing upwards.
Alpine single din analoge tuner.
4 proprietary din-plug amps, din plugs (3-2x100watts, 2x35watts)
Alpine EQ

At that time, Alpine and Kenwood used the same din plug for signal/power to amps.

One night, while out raising hell in the car, sliding around like the 'Bandit", as one should do at 16 year old...all of the sudden the bass drum in a Rush song changed. Very pronounced, punchy.You could feel it?
Next day I notice that one of the home speakers had slidden off the rear deck, down into the lower storage area. So I put it back up on the rear deck...got in car.. bass was gone? Finally figured out that by positioning/locating the home speakers, back-to-back in the lower storage compartment/hole..the bass changed. Like positioning a speaker in the corner of a room, loaded up. Sounded like a sub in todays systems.
Wow..that changed everything.

At the time, I had become friends with the owner of a local tv/stereo repair shop owner. He taught me about using capacitors as limiters, on speaker wire, to limit bass frequencies to smaller speakers. Another game changer. Cross-overs were not common use like today.
Oh, how times have changed.

"For the love of music..."
