Can anyone point me to a good car audio forum? I'm going to be getting a car for college grad, and I'm looking into putting in a decent soundsystem. Don't see a car audio forum here, but I'm sure some of you guys know of some.
Dunno man, I've heard $10,000 car audio systems that sound like garbage compared to my $200 Swans M200. Unless you spend a whole hell of a lot of time in your car, I might look into a desktop speaker system instead. Cars are one of the worst conceivable acoustic cesspools imaginable -- glass, leather, carpet, plastic, and wood all over the place and in all sorts of odd shapes and dimensions, not to mention the constant distraction of the engine hum and the sounds of the outside world.
Hmm, guess I got off topic here -- the only car audio enthusiast forums out there probably tout Bose anyway.
www.the12volt.com is a good audio forum. THe price of sound system can vary greatly depending on if you are installing it or if you are having it installed. There are many different brands ranging from crap to unbelievable. It just depends on how much you want to spend. If you install the system yourself, if you are comfortable with wiring things and taking parts of your car apart, as compared to having it professionally installed, you will save yourself probably about 25% - 33% of the cost. meaning thats how much it costs to install things. http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/index.php is also a site i use alot. Those are two good forums that you can get answers to just about anything car audio related.
