    You engine sound may be faked

    Quacker sound in the ocean

    During the Cold War, as Soviet Navy ballistic missile submarines patrolled the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean, they kept hearing the strangest sounds: what they described as “quacking�, the Russian version of our own onomatopeotic “ribbit� of a frog. The sounds were heard whenever the...

    Sound Preferences.

    What defines quality sound for you? I happen to like physical tight bass, smooth midrange, great imaging, and silky highs. The bass in a car stereo system should cave one's forehead in. :LOL:
