It will give you countless hours of pleasure and relaxation; and make for a far more interesting ride to work and back every day.
Car sound systems: a lifelong love
For many people, great car audio is a lifelong passion. They can never have enough raw sound power coming from their vehicles! Even though their cars look like science fiction creations, they continue adding subwoofers and amplifiers until every available surface is covered.
Although in some states in the US these so called “boom cars” are outlawed, you are free to blast your music as loud as you want in most of the world. This has given rise to a whole subculture of people who are so passionate about pimping out their sound systems that they are willing to spend a fortune on subwoofers, amplifiers and all kinds of extra equipment.
