    I was thinking that a new sub forum with car audio is definetly necessarry.

    Just think you can take your MP3 car project from top to bottom with the current forums but when you get to hooking your computer up to sound (where i am currently at) there is no place to put your posts except in general hardware (if broadness is an issue i think we shouldn't even have general hardware)

    Obviosly we need all of the subforums that we currently have but the iving on the cake would be an audio forum

    I think it is foolish from an owners perspective to ignore the demands of the clients (members in this case) I think an audio forum would greatly benefit the community and make this a much more active community. Audio is an intergral part of the mp3car process. As noted above generally the posters on here are much more electronically savy than those on your common car audio forums

    Just my $.02

    Also as a note to admins the added traffic / membership that an audio portion could bring to the site would mean a wider range of advertisers you could attract to compensate for the added cost of increased traffic to the site

    Mmm, we're talking about clutter and topics being too broad.
    "Off topic" or "General Hardware" are both pretty broad in my opinion. Should we tighten those down to.. "Something car-computer related but not serious" and "General car-computer hardware"? I don't think so. It's true the idea of a "Car Audio" section would be generally broad but this isn't the place where ricers with rattleing trunks are going to go to find out how to install a trunk that rattles more.
    As for clutter, people are generating new posts about topics already discussed, already asked questions, etc. To me, this is more clutter than the addition of a new sub-forum. Then you've got your people asking about PS2 and XBox screens with no intention of a carpc, which is fine and all but again it's clutter.
    Priorities please!

    Doh. I didn't see this thread, so I started my own. Oh well.. I guess take a look at Who wants an Audio Forum on mp3car.com? if you're looking for a few more "yes" votes.

    Just to add one more point to all this, I frankly find it ridiculous that a site called "mp3car" doesn't have an audio forum.

    it should exist.

    I believe most off the people in this forum have mutch more computer stuff knowlege than audio's, so, we canīt "lose" the little we have on other foruns.
    When I wanted to work out whitch way i would install my carpc's audio, I had to resort to other foruns for resources.

    It could be named " CarPC Audio " instead of "Car Audio" , that would keep it in focus.

    Anyway, hope the admins reconsider this.

    I agree! Would make searching for CarPC audio posts much easier!

    As a new user. I was very suprised that there was no audio forum on here. After all this is www.mp3car.com. Not www.carputer.com.

    Having an audio system in your car is pretty much mandatory for these kinds of projects. How many factory head units do you think would really do a good job for what we are trying to do. Plus people are hooking up aftermarket amplifiers and speakers. But for that knowledge we pretty much have to look elsewhere because there is no forum for it here. Only the PC side.

    I tell you one thing. When it comes to electronics. I have yet to see a site that could hold a candle to the knowledge of the people on this site. I used to be a part of a much larger site than this and they didn't have the nearly the same amount of knowledge in electronics than the people here. I think this site would benefit greatly by attracting people that also know the audio side of things.

    I don't know what makes you think this site is even close to being cluttered. This is one of the smaller sites I have seen. This site will have to grow if it wants to keep attracting new members.
