I doubt it would be possible (or even sane) to crank the thing up to full volume with anyone in the car. But lots of people do this sort of thing for shows etc., where people (hopefully) listen from a reasonably safe distance.
Agreed Horatio,receivers need to be sensitive.
With regard to cranking up the volume to feel the bass,this is the ear damaging bit.
But each to his\her own...Live and let live.
