An Audio System so Loud it Breaks Windshields

Have you ever had to replace a windshield? Most of us have been through the process due to kicked up debris, extreme temperatures, and even your occasional random act of vandalism. Windshields break for all kinds of reasons, but few can say their windshield was broken by the sound of their own car stereo systems.

A member of that few (and he seems proud too) is the guy featured in this video who cranks the volume well over 11and up to whatever number causes windshields to vibrate to the point of shattering. I would think it would get pretty annoying when your windshield breaks every time the bass line drops, but the driver seems pretty excited about it. Laugh while you can, buddy because I’m pretty sure your insurance isn’t going to cover that.

The video is actually taken from a so-called “dB drag race” where drivers face off in a battle of bass to determine who has the most powerful car audio system. I’m not sure how dangerous these battles typically get, but I’m guessing the truck in the video won unless his competitor exploded, in which case he still has a pretty good reason to celebrate.

We can't promise windshield-breaking power, but we will be launching a full product line of bass and audio upgrades in our Mobile Electronics section which we plan to push live this weekend. Sign up now for discounts when the new products become available.
