And that is an excellent point. I only did this as a test to see if I could improve my technique and to see if it really would work.
As a side note: I have a vehicle that I've spent tons of time and money on the audio system. It competes in a "Sound Quality" class.
Without getting too technical is all about how well it reproduces the original recording and stages the band on the dash.
The other third of the score is "Show". Nothing to do with how good it sounds but how good it looks and how flashy it is.
With that said I think taste should be the only concern but, nothing wrong with adding a little flash.
It only encourages me put forth a little more attention to detail in the future.
Thanks everybody for the comments and again thanks thirdeye
