        Now it seems like most of these DSP things for cars are unneeded, unless going with active crossovers and such, as most head units have a ton of DSP built in. I can actually do an active crossover with my head unit if I were to sacrifice my rear speakers.

        But I just bought a 4 channel amp, debating weather to use that for front/back speakers, or throw in my minidsp 2x4 and run the front woofers/tweeters actively off that, and run rears of head unit...

        Also mounted my bass control knob discreetly next to the dash light brightness control.https://i.imgur.com/h8kCHJ0.jpg

      If anyone needs a small amount of Dynamat type material for KISS or other mods, I probably will have some extra from my car I can send out

        Its Kno Knoise Kolosuss, so a bit thicker than dynamat, and at least for cars, better. Just pay shipping cost and I can give you a bit for any mods.

        Got some Focal ISS 165 components for the front, going to get the matching coaxials for the rear later. KnuKonceptz Kno Knoise Kolossus sound deadener, using in front doors for now, will order more for rear doors when I do those speakers, and maybe eventually treat cargo area/hatch and roof.

        The sound deadener will make a nice difference tightening up the sound. The solid thud when closing the door after application is sweet too.

        Yeah, should be nice. I figured I might as well put money into making my car a better place to be, only at about 32k miles right now, going to have it for a while. Though not sure how much ill be driving it in the coming months with coronavirus. No where to go...

        Cyberpunk would be like the modern world, just with more existential dread. What I really want is a Victorian steampunk future because that's how I'd love to dress if I weren't afraid of standing out in public and didn't live in a tropical country where 30 Celcius is kinda mild :))

        Those look like they came from a 1980's rack system. (Back when I sold rack systems) But for $30, probably a great party speaker. You could flip those to a college bro for $100 easy if you get tired of them.

        It’s difficult to seperate the man from his “art”. Kanye’s antics have diminished his achievements but even with his more recent work, brilliance still shines through. MBDTF is peak Kanye and is an unassailable masterpiece.

        For context, my primary concern was comfort (the bowls hurt) and this was with the vintage RS1, so not sure how it'll fare with the SR125. They're cheap enough that I don't feel bad impulse buying though :))

        Of course you do! Guinness is a kind of drink called "stout." There are other types, one of which is Mackeson. Guinness to Mackeson is like a dry wine to a sweet wine.

        Mackeson was one of my favourite drinks when I did.

        Mackeson comes from England. Guinness, apart from its unique flavour, remains the archetypal Irish drink.
