I would be interested to see how the B & O system in the A8 or the Mark Levinson system in the Lexus would go in your competition.

If it’s a standard system it will get soundly whooped by a decent aftermarket setup.

The louder the music, the greater the lack of taste.

Probably s***house, but feel free to come along.

fyi we are not all about “doof doof” as you so kindly put it, but rather strive towards producing a car sound system that accurately reproduces the music true to source. maybe instead of stereotyping us you should take the opportunity to hear what music should sound like inside a car.

Part of the event is a dB competition, which is the epitome of doofery. Not hatin’, just sayin’. 😉

We wouldn’t care if you kept it inside your car, but usually we can hear what it sounds like from inside our own cars or homes. If it can be heard from outside your car it is not a sound system..it is noise pollution.

for your information the majority of us do keep it inside our cars, in fact most of our stereos aren’t even all that loud. the music we use to judge the cars is 90% jazz, hardly doof doof is it?

just because you drive a car doesnt mean i automatically assume you are doing burnouts at every corner do i? there are those of us that put an aftermarket stereo in our car simply because we want to get the best possible quality of music in our cars not because we want to disturb the neighbours. btw i also cant stand people that drive around with their stereo on full ball for all to hear, i just get sick of people stereotyping me because i have a stereo in my car when i am driving around listening to a mix of soft rock, classical and jazz.

wow so much negativity, if you don’t like it you don’t need to come 🙂

for the judging we primarily use Chesky 10 Best which has a selection of high quality music recordings which are used to judge aspects of the sound system including stage height, width, depth, and imaging, along with sonic accuracy, tonality and linearity.

I was really looking forward to attending this but I don’t talk in a lossless format so I’m not allowed.

RiotFrog 3:15 pm 26 Apr 11

From orbit, ideally. It’s the only way to be sure.

anonymoose 3:10 pm 26 Apr 11

I was curious about the music that’s used – never head of referencedisks.com.au and they don’t seem to list artists or anything on the items.

What sort of music is it? just test samples of different frequencies? white/pink noise? classical? Electronic to test ranges?

Lazy I 3:09 pm 26 Apr 11

Strange they have decided against using the well proven ‘Rusty Commodore Boot Rattle’ (RCBR) method of measurement for the SPL entrants.

“MEASQ is a fair and unbiased judging format used to subjectively compare a competitor’s car audio system’s ability to accurately reproduce audio”

Don’t pick on them people, it’s obvious this is all they can aspire to. I mean judging by this, even High School english was a bridge too far. Subjective can’t be unbiased and fair… that’s objective.

Knowing someone who competed by the way, don’t expect to see any real hot rods there. Just Qbn folk with 1980 Pulsars and subs instead of back seats.

Deref 2:50 pm 26 Apr 11

😀 So if all the cars with doof machines are coming together for this, could we organise someone to drop a small thermonuclear device on them?

And may all the systems simultaneously explode and take their bogan owners to a far hotter place, and leave the rest of us in peace and quiet.
