At the Dallas Auto Show, they had a fully-loaded white Range Rover blasting Twista and Chingy through the system. POWERFUL bass, yet very CLEAR! Nice...Originally posted by Jabroni@Apr 13 2004, 05:01 PM
The Escalade does have a pretty nice stereo regardless, 9 speaker Bose-including subwoofer, not bad at all. If you want to talk about how many speakers look no further than the Range Rover-16 Harmen Karden speakers, pretty nice I bet

Umm... OK.. seriously... THX sound system? In a car?
Is the sound equipment "THX rated?" And is the cabin itself "THX rated?" I don't know much about the THX system in autos, but you can have your THX speakers and sound system... but if the room/car cabin isn't THX certified... you don't have a THX system.
I don't consider myself a hardcore audiophile myself... but I do find it rather strange that there are DVD-A players in cars. First of all... no one knows if DVD-A is going to be the standard audio format of the future. For all we know.. it's SACD. That would date the audio system real fast.
Furthermore, I would rather have a high quality input for my iPod (or other portable msuic player) in dash. I know VW's have it. But I don't want a VW!!
Finally... "Center channel" audio. Why is that necessary in a car without a DVD player in dash? And why is it even necessary for just plain audio.
I think people should jsut be careful with what kind of audio system they get. It can get very expensive very fast... for unneeded equipment. For example... I would never get a DVD-A changer in my car. You can only get the full effect using DVD-A discs. Otherwise, it's just a glorified CD changer. :blink:
