General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

I just spoke to a car audio buff here at the office...

and I had no idea what was involved in award winning car audio systems.

His set-up goes back 15 years or so, and he was explaining how judging was based on pinpoint imaging and depth, as in vocals front and center, with drums behind, etc etc., and how it sounds relative to where you sit in the car. Also compared was the car set-up to a reference "home" audio system.

He would tune the car system electronically and acoustically to the interior, as we do to our home based audio rooms. Extremely interesting to hear him speak on this.

And yes, much money and time can be invested.

He hasn't kept up, but I'd be curious to see what competitions/criteria exist today.

Admittedly, I've been in the dark about car audio competitions, thinking all it meant was to open up the trunk lid and measure the decibels.

I haven't heard his system yet, but look forward to it.
