.....  I hear a buzzing sound somewhere in cyberspace.....
1, you have the definition of Subjective and Objective backwards. 2, car
tuners are rated and hoots are given to them. 3, haven't seen a car audio
manufacturer yet that doesn't measure EXACTLY what you describe, it's called
a SOUND FIELD ANALYZER, and it quantifies EXACTLY what you hear in THE
environment you will hear it IN, and in fact can analyze sound you CAN'T hear
as well (but your dog might thank you) .  You might want to ck the archives
on the level of audiophiles here, there are more than a few.......
