I always wondered about that. Is the battery of a car capable of running that many amps?!?! Also, would you suggest running the audio when my car is idle?
I haven't played the songs through Pendrive or CDs yet but only through the mobile bluetooth. What kind of a difference these devices can make? I read that CDs are mostly coming with a 1141 bitrate.
Thanks bro. And sorry for shooting with so many questions
Vocals fading off is a plus if you find them a bit shrill now. It can be a minus if you were obsessed with their sharp note. Laid back sound means which has slightly muted or muffled high frequency, to which you can listen for hours together. It doesn't harm or irritate the ears like a sharp and shrill sound does over long hearing hours. You get a soothing experience in a laid back soundstage, rather than a thrilling and exhilerating experience of a vibrant soundstage.
These guys with 3 or more hungry amplifiers use multiple additional batteries. These batteries kept in the boot are only for music and the primary battery handles other functions.
With car in idle, did you mean engine ON or OFF? If the engine is running, you can listen for as many hours as you want. If the engine is off, it depends on your battery's age and health. If you have a weak battery, it will last for merely 30 minutes but if the battery is good, you can play for 2+ hours constantly (personal experience on 4 month old battery). The battery will not drain out completely, your HU or Amps would start tripping when battery isn't able to power sufficiently. To be on a safer side, limit to 1 hour music playback at max.
CDs have a high bitrate and can give some really good improvement, provided that your setup can produce the music in such detail. For regular folks like us, bluetooth and USBs are good. In fact, with basic systems, CDs hardly make any difference. With better equipment, source of music is considered important.
Just make sure you download music from a good app that has at least 44kHz bitrate and aim at getting highest possible quality (size should be around 8+ MB for a 3 minute song) for the phone when playing via BT.
