I really wouldn’t recommend it. Bass is great, it’s a cheap and easy way to improve any sound system – but you can’t sing along to it. I challenge anyone who reads this to try and sing along to ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ or ‘Hey! Mickey’ while you can’t even hear the words, let alone yourself.
Bass is that sound you can feel pounding on your chest, like an extra heartbeat. But the treble is what makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, it can send a chill up your spine.
If you come into my shop, I’ll give you what you ask for. If you want window rattling bass, you can have it – I don’t have to try and sing to it. But rest assured; if you ask for sound quality, I can give it to you.
Learn a lesson from the song, Meghan Trainor may be “all about that bass” – but the song has barely any in it, it’s mainly treble.
Any good sound system is about balance, getting the right sounds into the right areas of the car to give you the optimum experience. A sound system without bass is like a Michael Bay film without frivolous explosions, it just wouldn’t be right – but the same goes for treble.
So just remember, next time you’re driving along wiggling the steering wheel while you sing along to ‘shake it off’, that the haters will always “hate hate hate” but you should always value every aspect of a good audio system.
