Chevrolet S-10 Boom Truck – Click above to watch video after the jump

There are sound systems, and then there are walls of speakers capable of melting cinder blocks and turning your average Chevrolet S10 pickup into a buzzing, trembling box of terror. The audio setup in the video after the jump falls safely in that latter category. A group of devoted bass enthusiasts have managed to turn an unsuspecting lowered S-10 into a carrier of audio assault. Fortunately, all involved seem to only use the vehicle's power for good. You know, things like rattling windows, setting off car alarms and engineering Tina Turner-like hairstyles on cute girls with nothing but the sheer might of sound waves.

It's plenty impressive (if utterly pointless), but it might just be one of the better uses left for a 1999 S-10. Still, we've got to wonder exactly how long the vehicle can withstand that kind of vibration before the vehicle's sheets of glass and trim give up for good (just witness how the Bowtie's trim tries to rearrange itself or flee in the beginning of the video). Supposedly, the wall of speakers is tuned to 28 hertz for maximum punch. Hit the jump to have a look for yourself.

      I wonder what these people's hearing will be like in 20 years.

      While I could care less what people get up to in their spare time, I do have a problem with these idiots blasting this type of nonsense driving down the street...it's illegal, yes illegal (In most areas of Canada anyway) and it's an invasion in my home...I can't tell you how many times I've got my baby to sleep and some a**hat comes along with this and wakes them up...

      Say it time to put some trash on the real culperate here. I didn’t sacrifice anyone’s G.P.A. I didn’t threaten to break anyone’s laptop. I wasn’t the first the find all these ways to get someone. I didn’t start this war. I wasn’t the first to try to get someone’s G.P.A.

      These kids are different than the other idiots you guys are mentioning.These kids don't bother anybody and they live in the middle of nowhere. No cranky neighbors around to complaint.Yes,they do wear protective ear gear and their systems can go louder than that.
      They compete in car audio,they are simply showing their new upgrades for their youtube subscribers and whoever been following them on their car builds. It's a video for car audio junkies,i don't know why it's posted up here which is a topic that obviously doesn't satisfy everyone here.

      Glad to see this ridiculous hobby still going strong. :|

      When will this stuff die?

      That is horrible. Like those people who use crazy camber on their wheels, it is simply moronic. If you need attention, do you really need to annoy everyone around you or abuse a car to do so? People desperate for attention makes me laugh.

      You know - I don't mean to hate - but the vast majority of posters here that are so completely ignorant of the car stereo and modifying scene lead me to believe you have so little real experience with anything else automotive, at least in regards to performance/wrenching/maintaining/modding, whatever.

      I mean anyone can be an aficionado if a bone stock 2011 whatever - just go buy one. Congrats. Don't consider yourself a "car person" just because you own one and make sure the oil is changed by someone every 3000-5000 miles. There's more to it than that.

      I spent several years in highschool and college working in a car stereo shop. I work on my own vehicles. Every car I've ever owned has been more than just a vehicle to me. Cars/motorcycles have been a hobby for me, I don't do anything to this level anymore, but then again - I've got 2 Memphis Belle 6 channel amps sitting in the corner - ready to go. (You never get rid of good equipment) It still brings a smile to my face when I see someone enjoy their hobby. I would seriously recommend hearing protection for extended periods of this though. The rattling won't be stopped in a situation like this - there simply isn't enough dampening available to deal with the amount of air being moved here.

      BTW - the recording sounds distorted because the mic can't accurately deal with the SPL and frequency of the sound involved.

        When your car stereo costs more than the car and makes your car vibrate apart, you are taking it too far.

      This was my buddy's Ford Explorer from way back in college.

      He put in Toyota Land Cruiser headlights, six 12" subs, all custom mounted... it was a beast...

      I don't understand all these comments about "look what they r doing to themselves" or "imagine how their health is gonna be in the future" cuz I can ask that to anybody who smokes, drinks, or any other "hobby". These people are passionate about what they do. So Propsto them and Anti- props to y'all hatin. Simple as that.

      It's a late nineties GM product. It probably rattled like that coming off the assembly line.
