    How loud do you play your music then? A difficult one to quantify but lets say if you pull up outside your house, how many neighbours can hear what you are playing?

    I tend to crank the volume up when I go for a fun drive but for serious commuting I keep the radio volume down a bit more.

    Generally I have it turned up as far as I can without it sounding distorted. I turn it down when I'm driving late at night or when I have a passenger.

    depends on how fast im going. if im going through town or near houses i turn it down a notch, but going down the bypass/motorway its usually maxed out. Or if i'm showing off :D

    I have my moments. Lot of the time I listen to Radio 4 (it's my age!) but sometimes I wind up the CD volume. And it's loud! The factory fit JBL amps/speakers are pretty good.

    No too far inland to create those! Now if i was on the coast them i might consider the possiblility, but i am too far inland for hurricanes. Now tornados are the times i really crank it up!!!!!

    Loud enough to hear over the road noise, also loud enough to have to turn it down when coming into my road. Although tbf the system isn't going to win any sound offs! :lol:

    I'll be honest here. If my son isn't in the car it's normally always pretty damn loud. The cab is louder though when the roof is down. ;):bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:
    And it will be even louder when a put the component speakers in and maybe a nice sub. ;)
