I know SOME people who visit max listen to classical music once in a while in the car...

If you've ever listened to classical music with a full range stereo (I'm talking MB Quart speakers and a decent sub) you'll feel like you're at the performance live.

Same goes for a LOT of music... I know that anything with vocals sounds like shit with crappy tweets.

If you can afford it get a good front component kit. 2 way speakers are not worth it.
