Steve Meade Designs' phone book-shredding Chevrolet Tahoe – Click above to view videos after the jump

There's ridiculous bass, and then there's this madness. Steve Meade Designs is a custom car audio shop that specializes in the kind of audio systems that require 10 batteries and three alternators to run. This clip features Meade's own 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe, and its compliment of four 18-inch subwoofers, backed by a total of 13 amps and 26 smaller speakers, including 10 6.5-inch mids, and 10 one-inch tweeters.

The result of all that firepower directed at four 18-inch woofers is a phone book-shredding bass attack. We don't mean phone book-shredding in the figurative sense, either. As the videos after the jump clearly show (hint: fast-forward first video to 3:00), Steve Meade Designs has built a stereo system so powerful it can shred your average metropolitan phone book to bits in minutes. Just think about what it'll do to your ear drums.

      That guy is going to be needing a hearing aid very soon.

      But seriously, I understand liking music and base but that's just plain ridiculous! It probably cost him enough to buy himself better car and/or truck

      To everyone who says this guy is trashy, he isn't actually. He is a project engineer, which means he draws out schools, hospitals, buildings, etc. He makes a diagram of the roof and he keeps 2 other jobs with that. And then his hobby is car audio. Why don't people just keep a open mind and let people do what they want to do? It's his money, let him use it when and where he wants to.

        Here is 2 cents.

        Get over yourself.

      Now what will he do, if he wants to order a pizza, and doesn't know who to call?
      • 3 Years Ago
      ... or better yet, what it will do to your engine!
        • 3 Years Ago
        Sure it did a job on the phone book, but the guy is standing
        • 3 Years Ago
        If it does this to a book, imagine what it does to its owner's brain.
        • 3 Years Ago
        or his ears?!? where's their earplugs?!?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Or any internal organs. I like my undamaged innards.

      Just plain stupid or a seriously tiny penis.

      Plastic windows I'm sure.
      • 3 Years Ago
      WOW! That was totally stupid and a waste of my time to watch. You can do better than this Autoblog.

        Ease up there drbond. There was a point in my life where I couldn't get enough of good, loud stereo system. May not be your thing, but it's still and impressive system.
        • 3 Years Ago
        The only thing impressive about that system is that the white trash goon who put it together was able to save up enough food stamps to buy it all. That system looks and sounds like complete a$$.

      This is beyond stupid. The music is even worse. Oops, sorry, it's not music.

      Mindless, droning, idiotic, no talent, rap.

      Yo, we don't LOOK stupid enough with oversized, baggy basketball shorts, hoodies, huge tilted clown baseball caps and tattoos up to the neck.

      We don't ACT stupid enough grabbing our crotch, holding on to keep our pants up and saying "What up, dog?"

      No. Let's be even be more moronic and play the part. Love it. LOL Whitey trying to be ghetto gangsta with his 24" rims and overpriced car stereo.

      This whole street culture is pathetic and sad. "Dat's da way I roll!" "Ohh-kay street thug wannabe. Do you come with subtitles?

      The best part is they have no clue how stupid they talk, act and look. But judging how many baby mommas are out there, they do know how to breed. "Gotta keep it real!"

      Have another baby, you only have four. Your welfare check, food stamps and other gubmint "assistance" will take you to the cradle to the grave. No work, just chill and make more babies.

      Irresponsible leetches on society.

        How do you explain Charlie Sheen?
        • 3 Years Ago
        So, potpie, what exactly does food stamps have to do with promoting ones business as Mr. Meade is doing here? That's an interesting parallel you draw. Please, elaborate, especially on Steve Meade's use of food stamps, illegitimate children, and being a leech on society.

        Also, as a promotional tool for one's business, how does one judge said item as "overpriced"?

        Oh, and before you judge rap as "mindless, droning, and idiotic", try doing it well. I find classical music to be droning, but it's certainly not easy, and I definitely can't do it. FWIW I don't listen to much rap, either.

        Z28sAreFun,

        Potpie is having the same reaction that some here have against "rednecks", they think it's cool to put down another group that's different from them.
        • 3 Years Ago
        @ Potpie:
        Thanks for my first morning laugh! Don't disagree with you but, I think you're putting a bit much on this guy here. Still, I understand your feelings.
