What if your radio only goes up to 30...? volume for breaking in a sub - Page 2 - Last Post -- posted image.

It really amazes me with how important this is to some customers.  Most of my customers.  Years ago i had a used Alpine deck for sale, a potential customer asked me how high does the volume go.  I told him that the gain on his amplifier would determine how loud it would go.  He proceeded to explain the question a little better.  I answered "it counts up to 33"  His boy said "Man don't buy that one, that JVC goes up to 50."  I lost that sale that day.  Just yesterday a similar situation occured, two guys came in looking at double din dvd/monitor units.  They were real interested in the pioneer avhp-3200dvd.  He asked me if I could turn the speakers off, I did, he then began spinning the volume knob, when it got to 51, he stopped and looked at his buddy.  Then continued up to 60.  At that point he stopped and said he wanted it. 

Are those numbers even really measuring anything significant, or is the scale totally arbitrary and subjective?.. Mine goes to 35, but I have never even had to the desire to turn it to 30.

Didn't someone just mention how we(?) occasionally D'oh!??
And thread dates are another one of those things... (It's usually only noobs...)
However IMO this was a good one to d'oh.
I thought I had replied with "I thought Spinal Tap (the film) killed that one!". IE where <whoever> is most impressed with the amp that does to 11. (But that must've been another thread.)
Personal opinion only - but how thick can people be?
I was amuse last weekend when I saw the Aussie "Beauty and the Geek" where a female reckoned she go confused because the world map she was standing on "was upside-down".
It seems John Clease will have to remake that old classic The Plank - or was it another where the nail (or plank?) was pointed the wrong way for the wall (3 Stooges? Abbott & Costello?)   
I try to tell people that cars have steering wheels so that they do not have to reverse all the way home.
But thanks for sharing another "real story" to add to my collection. Reality qualifies much better than hypothesis an personal POVs.
Just remember - never learn from history or others. Do it all as DIY. (Thereby confirming that disasters were in fact disastrous. And expensive.)
