What do audiophiles do in their cars?

All of you forum members with your killer home systems…what do you listen to in your cars?  Do y’all have custom stereo systems?  Does the quality of the stereo system actually impact your car buying decision?  I have a B&O setup in my 2021 truck, which was an upgrade and sounds decent enough, but nothing compared to a typical HiFi home system.
I agree that most car systems sound pretty good—much better than 10-20 years ago. The Burmester in my Mercedes sounds very good.  It’s still a car, though, and the sound competes with wind motor and tire noise.  I’m done with XM radio. The sound is just bad. I listen to internet radio or stream Qobuz or listen odd my hard drive where I have mp3 and flac files. But what I enjoy the most is listening.to radioJazz.fm out of Poland. I am continually amazed by their playlists. I hear songs from albums I’ve listened to for decades but have never heard on radio. An amazing resource. 
@rodman99999  Thanks for the information and website.

I will look into it right away. My question is, why did this start "all of a sudden" as I have had the car for a number of years?

Anyway, thank-you very much!


I really enjoy high end car audio and am able to get very good imaging/performance with my DSP by fine tuning the speaker delays and freq responses.  I've spent quite a bit of time tuning it, but it's something that is a lot of fun.
@simonmoon ’s comments made me think

he is correct, i don’t do any ’serious’ listening in a car... one is fundamentally multi tasking being an attentive driver (or passenger)

that said, we all have wonderful memories of great tunes, great moments, alone or with others with memorable music in cars -- so car audio is hardly trivial in that respect

in fact, one can argue the converse to a degree, one listens to the music more than the ’hifi system’ in a car, the audiophile ocd details of reproduction are best ignored when one enjoys music while commuting or on an extended road trip - most recently i drove to and from portland for a friends/family visit, it was so much fun to put on steely dan, anita baker, angela stone, tower of power, shaggy, etc etc as we cruised ... fun fun fun!
