Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Posted this at AVSForums, thought I'd repost here since you're all such a helpful bunch of people
I drive a 2004 Tundra Limited and am looking for a clean, dynamic, reasonably powerful sounding system to cover my wide range of music taste at all volume levels. I don't know anything as far as brands, sizes, etc and could really use some help.
Doesn't matter much, as long as it is good value. I do believe in diminishing returns - I don't want to spend triple the amount to get something that is marginally better.
My tastes include:
all kinds of metal, jazz, classical, electronic - particular affinity for low-end and drums
Balance, mostly, with a good, clean low-end when songs call for it, but not overpowering when it isn't necessary (like listening to Django Reindhardt, for example). I am a musician of sorts and enjoy discerning between the different roles and nuances of instruments, whether it be violins or a drummer. If an electronic song demands something thick and juicy, I want my system to deliver it (and at high volume, if desired). If a delicate violin/cello piece comes on, I want it to sound clear without a bunch of muddy bass tacked on.
Also to play CDs and have a dedicate auxiliary port for 1/8" to mp3 player.
I'd rather not put anything in the truck bed, if possible. If my wants require such, then please let me know.
I'm also probably going to need a new receiver and amp and all that, so any help there would also be swell.
I'm going to be in the LA/Orange County area until the 10th of this month; if there are any exceptional places to have this stuff installed please let me know!
I use a Zune HD, if that matters.
Thanks for the help, and if you guys need pics or more information please let me know and I will do my best to provide it to you.
