Distortion, in simple English, is when you car stereo sounds crappy.

Your stereo starts to create sounds that DOES NOT exist in the music either because the signal coming out is too high or its over amplified.

Woody, what the hell are you talking about?


When you crank up your volume and you hear a "buzz" or a "pock" sound, that's distortion.

How did I do?

When you hear ...

  • The rough sound of the music
  • The mechanical sound of the speakers
  • Bass notes buzzing and cracking
  • Tweeters sounding as though there is sand bouncing against them

That's distortion.

Distortion will destroy your speakers since they are moving in a way they were not designed to.

Time for a warning!
