Just wanted to share my tale with all of you. I went out last night to rent a movie, and on my way home I decided I wanted to drive a little more (it was a nice night out). So I took a route which I had never taken before, but I was pretty sure that I knew where it would lead me. I was just enjoying myself with the windows down "and the system up". I reached the outskirts of town and realized that I had no idea where I was, so I turned around. As I came over a hill, and back into town, I saw a cop car, but didnt think much of it since I wasnt (fortunatley) speeding. I drove past, but checked my rearview mirror just out of habbit, and sure enough there were the old red and blue lights. It turns out that in the town I was in, if the sound system can be heard from fifty feet, its a ticketable offense. So now I have a $55 ticket to deal with. All I can say is, the stock system in the Taurus is nice, regardless of what people say.

we have laws like that in some areas around here. its such crap you can hear someone talking in a normal from 50 feet away. in blacksburg I've heard there is a town ordinance that allows tickets for an exhaust that can be heard more than 50 feet away, that makes about half the cars on the road illegal, with stock exhaust!

It's really annoying when others think I want to listen to their system from my car. And there are not enough tickets given for blasting radio/stereos where I live.

That said, I turn my stock system up (it's the Mach System) from time to time. But I also turn it down when I'm stopped in traffic (even though I have *great* taste in music! LOL)

Two things I don't like about my "system" is that the volume does not increase with road noise (and therefore decrease with it) and the tuner is not very sensitive. I can't do anything about the first, but I'll try adding an Am/FM signal booster into the antenna input and see if that helps.

When I play a CD-- it sounds great! If only I could swap in a CD/MP3 disc player.
