*rant*

ok so ive seen this talked to death but frankly ppl still dont get it

nobody cares if you've been in the business for 20 yrs dont preach about how it should be set up cuz its not. listen to music in cars are waaaay different from tv/movies and live music. jus give advice and dont hate on others opinions, everyone has there owned preferred setup and experiences.

i like my tune coming mostly from the rear of the car and this bug the pros and others sayin nonono should be from the front thats the sound stage its best heard from.

if u flame ppl for their opinion, dont expect to not get flamed back.
time for ppl to give more respect to this brotherhood, not stupid high school drama queen stuff

It's the internet. And furthermore it's a forum. You must be new to to this, because people have and will continue to argue over everything. I haven't seen many people get "flammed" on this board. It's rather tame in my opinion. I suggest though, if your opinion is shot down you don't get your panties in a bunch.

In conclusion, there is not a ton of traffic in here, so when you give advice it's always good to mention why you like your setup and if you've tried other setups why you dont like them. Just saying "Chevy trucks are the best" does nobody any good and impressionable people will go out and buy one without even looking at a Ford. A better way to phrase a statement is "I like Chevy trucks. Their mpg is better and features for the dollar exceed that of a Ford. Also I owned a ford and it was a nightmare, this is my opinion". See the difference between the 2? In the end the seeker of advice can wad through the opinions and make their own conclusion.

....No but seriously, your sound stage should be up front.

It's all about how he sound waves travel and how your ears pick up the different frequencies.

Opinion- I don't like the way a front stage sounds

Fact- front stage produces more accurate audio as perceived by the listener in the drivers seat

I also prefer my sound to be slightly faded to the rear. I can't stand it coming from in front of me, unless I am watching a movie.

"surrounded" and "sound mostly from the rear are different things". My fade is at 2 to the rear as well to allow more bass and substance, but ears are designed to better hear what's in front of me.

Sound from the rear is fine with me as long as the seats are rotated 180 degrees.

And I am opposite in my car, unless I have time alignment, I can't stand rear fill. I am not running any rear door speakers.

That's the best thing about car audio, you do it how YOU want to do it, if other people don't like, great!

Unless you're stuck in somebody elses car all day long, why does their sound preference matter? What impact does it have on your life?

Some key facts need to be addressed to make this thread useful for everyone. I'll post them later unless someone beats me to it.
