I'm just as happy driving without music. Don't get me wrong. I've had systems before. I've just grown out of them. They simply aren't worth the time, effort, money, or added weight. If I wanted a high quality sound system, I would have purchased a different car.Originally posted by Hernan
An amped sound system is not always about "booming". As you said, as you ask for more volume the amp at the HU has not enough bread to reproduce low frecuencies. The result is a crisp and distortioned high and mids sound, not good.
A good amp gives you far better sound quality, even at moderate volume. Of course as SQ gets better you will be pleased hearing the system at higher volume but with lower distortion.
