Lately, I have been wondering.. why do people feel the need to blare music at insane volume levels? I mean there is a house that is probably a quater of a mile down the road from mine that plays it so loud all you can hear is a "thud" sound.. The place I work actually sells powerhorns.. (they don't intend for them to be used the way they are) and I actually asked a customer what she was using it for.. she said "I want to play my music louder in my car" then spoke about how she was going to mount it under/outside her car.. I pointed out that cars do act as a sound buffer.. they aren't sound proof but, they are designed to block noise and asked her if it wouldn't be better to install it inside her car.. she said no it would be plenty loud enough outside the car. Am I missing something here? This girl didn't even know one song can have two speakers play independently of each other, or anything at all about audio equipment.. She just wanted a loud powerhorn to make her music louder.. I mean when people turn up the volume the way they do.. are they just trying to annoy other people? Its not like the equipment they are using is even producing semi decent quality sound.. Now I can understand that playing louder may sometimes cause a loss of quality.. However, these people aren't even trying for anything besides loud even if the music sounds horrible.. I'm not an audiophile.. but, if I were going to spend money on a sound system.. I would at least *try* for something besides "omg its loud lolol"... I mean.. I can't really think of any other reason for mounting it outside your vehicle other than annoying other people... I could understand if someone got a really nice sound system for their house or car and got carried away with the volume.. However, this seems to be so far from the case it isn't funny.
