To the fine folks at Axiom:

Have you seriously thought about introducing line of car audio products for your customers? How difficult would it be to design car speakers that are similarly good to your current line of home speakers?

Bose does a pretty good job in the mobile market (certainly better than on the home front). I have no doubt that Axiom can do better.

How about it? Your products have spoiled many of us at home. Why not continue to spoil us on the road?

Alan, sounds good to me.. I'm sure they have thought this one thru once or twice ? At least a line of Subs ?
Hey, Joe Vassallo has a couple TENS in his Porsche.. Not designed for that, but what the heck, eh.. If he see this thread, maybe he can give us a little feedback.. ?

Mikey,

I'd be happy with a pair of 5 and 1/4 inch Axiom drivers in my Subaru. On second thought, make that two pairs -- don't want to leave out my rear passengers! Top it off with an EIGHT under the passenger seat. That would be awesome! Just like....like being at home!

Vroom Vroom!

I would hate to think that Ian and crew was diverted from their main focus of home audio. As we call all atest to by listening to the "boom cars", the bass extension is way over the top...and very unrealistic. I find most of these systems actually can't reproduce quality music, as they are designed to overcome car, and road noise.

...maybe I am just getting old, but I would put my 1970 SS Chevelle against any of these boom box Honda's that sound like they need an exhaust repair.

that's so true!

most people nowadays leave the manufacturer speakers, and just add something crazy like an 800watt double 12 inch subwoofer in the back. Sometimes they even need an extra battery to power it. I wonder is the air displacement these produce are enough to propel the car! or give it frame damage from the vibrations!

It was explained to me by some young guns, that they can't afford the insurance and gas for fast cars. So they spend the money they have on sound and noisy mufflers......

Well that was in the mid 80's, alas it is long gone......and was not much to look at when it was around
But it would turn mid 12's at the drag strip! AND if you dumped the clutch at high rev's in 1st or 2nd gear, lift the front tires off the ground!!

My current old car is a 1955 Studebaker Champion. Runs great, needs to be painted. My hometown hero!

Oh, the memories of truly HOT cars (and inadequate sound systems in them - like those fab 2 way 6 x 9 speakers in the shelf behind the rear seat) and not those buzzy little Honda, Acuras, and Neons. Let us have REAL V-8 power....

But! To quote a smart guy in a different thread......

"Stop it!!!!! You guys are starting my midlife crisis discussing all this venerable gear from my early days!!!!!"
