    couldnt tell you know, Head unit itself in the boot but its set to 28. other control is through the carputer that sits around 50%. but now im more like Loz its only loud enough to cover the road noise. if the windows open its slightly louder to cover the turbo whine

    so pretty loud lol

    Normally 15 is enough to hear it and have a conversation
    30 makes my main + side mirrors vibrate
    50 is too much and makes my head hurt lol

    All depends on how I feel when listening to music really.

    It really depends on my mood but most the time i have the sound up loud enough for any car near me to hear or at least feel the bass. I never have the sound up when I'm near my house though i don't want my subs and amp stolen again.

    LOUD, d&b/dubstep is pointless listening to without at least 2kw of subwoofer.

    AC/DC can never be loud enough unless you are already deaf.

    Just loud enough for you to listen, vol 1 or 2, front speakers.
    Also by the way use jasmine scent, keeps you refreshed and
    sharp.

    Mmm, seeing as all volume measurments are different on individual cars, ill have to settle for "inconsideratly loud". so long as the quality of the speakers is up to scratch, sounds naff otherwise.

    AC/DC Excellent choice ez64, In December 1989, US forces attempting to smoke Panamanian dictator General Noriega out of hiding played AC/DC's Back in Black at ear-splitting volume until he finally surrendered.

    Quote After failed diplomatic pressure on Panama and the Panaman dictator President Bush deployed his troops to capture Noriega. It was at the Nunciatura that the General seeked refuge from the army. The US troops surrounded the building and in an attempt to force the dictator out they played rock music constantly. It is believed that some of the rock music used included much of AC/DC's back catalogue.
