    Arrow Difference between car speakers and home speakers?

    well car speakers sound a whole lot better simply because they have less air to move inside your car,then say your living room.i think you should be able to use car speakers in your home theater its that you'll need to have a speaker box and match the impedance or else its no use to have one in your house.but you can design them to be used at home.it should sound the same if not better...as i said before your car has a lot less air then your living room causing the sub woofer to sound amazing in your car...and sometimes crappy in your living room.

    I find this to be opposite, my home theater stuff isn't anything to brag about, but it sounds much better than any car I have been in.

    But innovative non the less.

    The difference is the impedance of the speakers.
