My at the time girl and myself parked on the shag carpet between a set of whatever speakers that were placed no more than 3 feet apart, facing each other, playing 'Stairway To Heaven' as loud as the receiver would go...chemically induced if I can recall.
High Five! I used to lie on my back diagonally on my bed, with my head overhanging the corner of the "foot side" so my ears were unobstructed to the two massive speakers I'd have 2' off each ear.
