You get a lot of high power car audio system in cars these days, you would have never seen this in the old days maybe because they were not available that time and maybe, because you would get police coming to your door every second or people maybe thought “hey that would not benefit me” , well car audio don’t benefit you accept if you are into competitions. So the fact of the matter is that car audio is becoming very popular and if you don’t have a high power audio system in your car I would recommend getting one because it makes the sound so much more enjoyable, although if you are not that into high power sound systems I would recommend just upgrading your standard sound system to something a bit more powerful (you won’t regret it)
Well I want to come back to sound competitions, these competitions are popular over the world but are most popular in the U.S. because of the high and wide range of availability of products over there I’m not saying that it’s not available anywhere else (obviously) it’s just that prices are quite lower in the US than in the rest of the world. Anyway these competitions exist out of people competing with each other with their car sound systems and these are definitely not ordinary systems they are very high powered I’m talking about in the tens of thousands of watts RMS and there are some that reach high over 150 decibels that is louder than a Boing taking off! Some of these cars or even trucks consist of maybe close to 20 subwoofers … Definitely not going to climb in that car, 20 would maybe fit in kombi but not a car. So what happens is that when these car sound system are played at full load you won’t be able to sit in the car or truck I mean you can but you will be sorry you ever did that, because the sound pressure would be so high that it will and I mean WILL burst your eardrums so I would not recommend getting into one of these sound cars while its playing at full load
There are prizes to be won for the car with the loudest system, sometimes it can be something like an amplifier or a sub while it can also be money though it would not be much, Main reason for these gatherings are for people just to show off their sound and sometimes also their car, truck kombi or whatever it might be, and also just to enjoy the day with family and friends.
