Do you really need a car with a four-channel 120-watt amp with two sub-woofers that's going to shake seats and annoy neighbors?

Torrington police officer Lt. Brett Johnson recently posted on Facebook:

If your vehicle rattles so much with the bass that it sounds like someone is continously throwing silverware out of the windows, it's probably way too loud and if you can't hear emergency sirens from 10 feet away, it's probably TOO loud!"

Officer Johnson's message is when you have your music cranked full blast and your vehicle's sub-woofer is rattling the windows it's difficult to hear emergency sirens from an ambulance, police car, or a fire engine.

(And no, people aren't looking at you because you look 'cool'), you should probably turn it down a bit...or A LOT!
