    Please return your drivers license to your local registry at once and continue to use your bicycle.


    Thanks.

    Home audio in a vehicle? Well, back in the day(about 1976), Bose had just brought out their 301's, and we thought it would be a good idea to slam a few pair into a converted school bus we used for partying. They sounded great.....the only problem was, whenever we hit a pothole, the record would skip, and we went through about 4 new cartridges a month.....damn Oracle for their inferior products.

    HAHAHA.....sorry dude, I'm just funnin ya.....we didnt have potholes back then.

    It's a great idea (if you have a 70's van, complete with those acrylic porthole windows and the corresponding princess-warrior murals airbrushed on the sides).

    I fondly remember a buddy thinking his Wharfdale Diamonds sounded great propped in the rear seat of his '67 'Stang droptop. To be fair, they were an improvement over the 6X9s he was running "free air" laid on top of the lowered convertible top behind the seat.

    You probably shouldn't defile a car as nice as an Accord with a makeshift home audio conversion. I'd vote "no".

    You can have a very good sounding audio system in a car without relying on gear that is made for you home.

    For one, car speakers are made to take the abuse that they will encounter in the mobile environment.

    The HT guys could correct me if I'm way off track, but most home audio speakers are rated at 8 ohms impedance. Most 12V speakers are 4 ohms (and some are 2, 1, etc. depending on voice coil configuration). Connecting an 8 ohm speaker to a typical car audio power source (head unit or amplifier) will only get you 1/2 the rated power and as a result less overall volume.

    Plus, the typical woodgrain home speaker cabinets don't blend very well with most car interiors ;) .

    I know this post is tongue in cheek because 301's don't even sound good IN a house! :D
