A car is potentially what I described....an isolated chamber for sound with potentially ideally placed speakers that create the ultimate illusion of sound. A little bigger and typically more expensive than I was thinking, but I could shop around for a used luxury car.....maybe one with engine problems so I can get it for a good price! I know a lot of luxury cars now come with sound systems designed by well known sound engineers like these:
If I sat out in the garage and listened to music, it would definitely not bother my wife. And I guess if push came to shove, I could also drive around in it.
I will have to start going to car dealerships and doing a test drive without going anywhere. That will blow the salesperson's mind.
And of course if someone wanted to do some modding, you could really get into trying different speaker placements and so forth. I guess others have gone down this road before, although I think they were possibly interested in creating realistic levels of bass to fill the entire neighborhood more than audiophile sound:
Don't remind me of the countless hours/cash/time spent on modifying my car stereo to the unobtainable illusion of perfection...
Only to have the tranny die a few years later and sell it all to junk yard Lol.
The car stereo route is another slippery slope when Ur picky and build Ur own power and control center..
Then muscle up some heavy earth bass..
Then endless upgrades..
Only to realize you can't take it home with you, and..
All to try to achieve the sonic bliss that is more readily obtained peacefully at home,
with a simple purchase of, say, an HE560...
