    Hello Audio Experts!
    I've given up trying to get even acceptable sound in my cars. As my home system has improved I realized I could spend lots on the car system & get mediocre sound.
    And the dogs always want the windows open, ruining the sound further....

      It all depends. I used to spend a large amount of time in my car, alone, windows up, and therefore had spent a lot of time (and money) on my car setups and some of them sounded incredible. Yes there is a higher noise floor when driving and complex reflections, but car audio has had active crossovers and dsp for quite some time allowing the operator to really dial things in. I miss some of my sq car systems.

        I felt the same way for many years. But, our youngest urged me to upgrade most everything in my car a few months ago. Nothing too expensive. A $100 Pioneer HU, 4 ch amp, I built the box for a shallow, hidden sub. I had remembered Alpine used to make decent stuff, so I bought some S series comps (they were on sale) for the front doors. Those sounded like complete garbage in my little SUV. Harsh and shouty. EQ didn't help. Ripped them out after a few weeks - replaced with Silver Flute 6.5s & Peerless OC25SC65 tweeters. I took some near-field measurements and worked up a passive crossover. It was nothing fancy, I think it was LR4 targets on W & T plus an L-pad. Wow - what a difference! I like it so much, I just bought a nicer sub and slightly beefier amps!!
