This question is for those of you that have solid backgrounds or allot of knowledge on car audio. Would you consider car audio to have the same quality as home audio? Would you rate a average car system to be as clean, crisp and detailed as a better than average home system? I may be completely off base here so please correct me if I am wrong. It just seems that with the size of the components that are used in you basic car audio compontents that car audio would not be as good as a home system. In regards to cd transports, d/a converters, video processing for car dvd players etc. It just seems like its all to packed in and that it would not be as good. I personally would not invest to much into a car audio system only because its allot more exposed because your car is typically drive to many locations. And during that time people hear it if you have it turned up or people might scope your car out if the suspect it might have a system in it. While it happens I feel its less unlikely that a peson will take the risk to try to steal an home theater system. Heck not to mention overall a home system is allot more flexible than a car audio system and has more format possibilities and highend components to improve the audio/theater exsperience. Now back to my question, I only ask this because it was something I was thinking about lately. And we don't learn unless we ask questions. I am not into car audio like I am into home audio. So I am hoping that some knowlegedgable people will be able to answer my question.
