The Stereo is a full custom install, and I specifically wanted it built for sound quality over loudness. As my daily driver, I'm more interested in hearing crisp, nice sounding music while I'm driving than ear shattering loudness which no one other than an SPL judge would appreciate.

Having said that, the stereo has still managed a respectable SPL score of 138.4 decibels, which I'm more than happy with for now.

As for sound quality, it's right up there in the higher end of the competition.
