    I said in the HK audio thread that I was an audiophile so I guess I'll show you guys my sound system and home theater set up. Since half the year is too cold and snowy to really enjoy driving, I have this set up to keep me entertained until spring.

    The video tells you a lot about the sound system so I'll just say each speaker is tri-amplified with a total of 2,000 watts per speaker, each sub has 2 15 inch opposed drivers in them. The processor is an Integra DHC-80.3 which I may or may not upgrade in the near future and the blu-ray player is an Oppo BDP-93. Room is complete with 8 reclining seats, concession stand, and enough sound for Carnegie Hall lol. This sound system can get so ridiculously loud, it's impossible to stand it for over a minute. It can play well above 10db OVER reference level. The best part about it is, it doesn't sacrifice anything in sound quality, detail, accuracy or resolution. The sound system sounds fantastic at low volumes, people have replaced speakers costing as much as a Hellcat for these and never looked back. They can play low and please any blindfolded audiophile, and you can crank it to deafening levels, yet the speakers still maintain composure and sound completely unstrained and crystal clear.

    Here are some pics and the video. I'd like to apologize for the video quality, but the sound quality in the video is pretty good. I'll use that Zoom H4N to record the Hellcat's exhaust someday :)

    I have a man cave with a theater and thought it was overkill....what you have is insane :) There's no possible way to truly take advantage of that kind of power without breaking ear drums. You've attempted to put a Hellcat in a garage and practice quarter mile runs :)

    Thanks guys! Yeah, it's definitely overkill for the room size. The good thing is you can put it as loud as you can possibly stand, and never hit the limits of the sound system! There's nothing I can say that can describe how crazy it is. It's something that has to be experienced

    Once shut the Hellcat down, you very well might feel the tremors!

    Very very cool. I'm the exact opposite of you. I watch all my movies on my iPhone with wireless beats. Lol
