I suspect that the highly subjective assessment of sound systems will make the forums discussions on tyres pail into insignificancejohn-e89 wrote: ↑Sat Sep 07, 2019 11:29 amNot willy waving but I’d be very interested to hear what that lot sounds like compared to the Burmester in the Boxster, a rather mad outlay of.....*cough*...£2700....It has a class D sub amp then a 850 watt class A/B amp for the rest, silk domed tweeters, Air motion transformers mids etc, it sounds very very good, for the outlay plus the fact it’s factory fitted so no need to rip the car apart it’s worth it imo, I don’t begrudge to price for the sound quality, would make an interesting comparison to yours.Pbondar wrote: ↑Thu Sep 05, 2019 6:43 pmWell it was as follows approx...
Match DSP amp £600
Alpine subwooofer amp £125
Door speakers £225
Rear Speakers £205
Centre Speaker £110
Sample mic £125
Plus soldering iron/connectors/wire etc £50 ish
Plus probably around 10 man days total effort..
I think a conclusion as you imply is that paying ‘lots’ for a sound upgrade when ordering a new car is small change compared to a ground zero re-work...bearing in my case that the head unit wasn’t touched with whatever limitations that has..
I’m off for a weekend to the Perth run, top down all the time, so will see how it checks out..
I can only be grateful it’s a car and not an aircraft..the decimal point would have moved at least one place to the right...
