If you're looking for noise as opposed to something remotely resembling music (most car "audio"), then patch in a 10-band equalizer and whoop up the frequencies above 250 Hz. Wear ear plugs.

+1 for the ear plugs.....to each their own but I don't see the point of throwing money at excessive volume levels so you can rattle the car apart and have partial hearing loss by the time you're 25.

so go with "pro audio" stuff, for example "electro voice" for 10" mids, (whatever sizes in the rest of the brands) seleniums, beyma, b&c, 18sound etc.

ur not going to get sound quality like you would from car audio but you will definitely be louder, and with a clarion eq, you will be straight, just tune it very well, and everything powered well and you'll definitely have some people rubbernecking lol

So how would you wire a eq into the factory Bose stereo?

um i really dont think its possible, but im not 100% sure on that..

and if ur going for loud, then you might want to go with a complete aftermarket setup

there are no solid solutions for adding to the bose in a cost effiective manner. On the seville I went with a 6" mid-bass driver, 4" midrange and 1 inch tweeter in each of the front doors, 2 6" mid-bass, 2 4" midrange in the rear deck, and 2 1" tweeters in the c-panels. built the crossovers myself, so cabin is 4 channels at 4 ohms, 275 watts RMS each (speakers are rated for 375 total each)...subs I am running 2 2 ohm 12" boston competitor radiator boxes powered at 750 RMS each.

all the way up there is no distortion. so you really have no clue how loud it truley is...get on the freeway at 80, all the windows down and no wind noise....the downside is when you stop you cant hear squat.

Sure you can make it rattle the car, but hey, anyone can hit, some of us prefer to enjoy the whole experience.
