You're 100% correct. The difference between a $300 and $1000 system is huge
, and it definitely only gets marginally better past that when compared to the gains up to that point.
But I meant most people can't tell the difference between even low-end, entry-level stuff.
That said, I really, really want to go crazy with audio when I can afford to. It's so interesting to me. Plus my headphones have made everything else sound like garbage.
Edit: I've just realized that the only thing I would need to go active 3-way in my car is:
- A set of small subs/midbass drivers
- A distro block
- A 3-way crossover
- The time/effort to wire it all back up
- A way to mount the new subs/midbass drivers, or a place to move my current mids to (or smaller replacements for my current mids to be able to mount them somewhere else easily)
Oooooooooh boy. I really don't know if it's worth the effort though, considering anything I do from this point on is going to basically require irreversible customization to the car...
