Why is it that even the most expensive Bose system or “premium audio” or “shaker” or whatever the hell OEM speakers in a car still sound shittier than my mustang with a Pioneer head unit and a 12" MTX tossed in the trunk? I don’t have a team of engineers. I don’t have a huge budget. I have some craigslist junk and a few minutes to set up my EQ and crossovers on the head unit and the result sounds better than 99.99999% of stock sound systems, even many cars have “subwoofers” built into them now they still sound like ass by shoving bass through the door speakers where it doesn’t belong (and distorts the balls out of the mids). Why is this? Why can’t companies with millions of dollars to spend do better than a kid with $50 and some spare time?
