Quite correct Az
Is is extremely difficult to obtain a good sound in a car because quite frankly the acoustics of a car are lousy.
Many people have inefficient speaker systems and compensate for this by using bigger amps.
Designing and building amps with very low THD and high RMS power is very easy using modern components (Mosfets etc) but turning that power into actual spl (which is what makes cars shake) is down to the speaker manufacturers.
The manufacturers are up against variables such as large temperature and humidity changes which is not such a problem with band PA systems as they have time to aclimatise before being driven hard. They have to use cone materials that will withstand this these variables and this leads to less efficient outputs.
Still interested in the power rating of the amp in question though.
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
