how loud do you go?

hey guys, just wondering how loud some of you guys listen to your stereos. i have a 2010 ses so its a decent system but im afrad to crank it up too high in fear of blowing the speakers. i usually listen to it til the volume bar is under the "O" in Volume. i would put it all the way up if i knew i could!

Turn it up until the sound distorts, then back it off one.

Or, just go to 11.

My old car, 02 Caravan, had two Kicker Solobaric 15's with 4 6x9's. 1200.2 and a 300.4 amps. I listened to it pretty loud.
I still have all the gear but the subs won't fit in the hatch.

Usually My music is turned off when i drive the car. I like to hear the World around me, not music.
I have a stereo at home for music.

I'm the same to an extent. The world gets boring after a while.
