Re: Thanks, but...
said by theboz1419:Agreed. I have a single JL 10"W3 and that generates more than enough bass for pretty much any type of music. But I listen to it with the windows rolled up, it's for my enjoyment, not as an attempt to get attention from other people. When used this way, it really doesn't carry all that far outside despite being very loud inside. The bigger problem is when people use an excessive amount of power with the windows down, for the explicit purpose of getting attention.
Nothing wrong with subs in the car. It's the ones that are not soundproof that are the problem. I used to have 2 12s in my older car but I had it dynamate and sound barrier installed every where. The people that don't I can't stand either. They are laws too. Also, I guess we would need to ban motorcycles too then
Even people who use subwoofers in an annoying way, in my area, they are far outnumbered by people with modified exhausts, and Harley type motorcycles. At some point you have to accept that you will never have control over others' actions, and you either need to get used to the noise pollution, or move to a more remote location to get it.
If you can't suggest a good law.. I guess copying from common sense (ie: Social Norms) is a safe thing to do. Besides it being stupid that you would make a law for something that social norms takes care of, and making the future more difficult for society.
I guess next we need to make it illegal to talk on speakerphone with your phone in front of you while you walk around in public. It's common sense no-one wants to listen to either person in the conversation.

Re: If you can't suggest a good law..
said by TBBroadband:No. You have laws and regulations because there are few who believe they have the right to do anything they want without regards to being responsible for using those rights properly. When the nation was founded, it was generally assumed that with rights came responsibilities. The responsibilities aspect went out the window long ago and the attitude became I have rights so screw you. Thus we get ever more "Nanny State" type regulation because people have proven they cannot be responsible with the exercise of their rights.
Laws like this are created because you have the few that thing laws and regulation are the answer to everything.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.

Let the airlines decide. Let the airlines decide. Government has more important things to do.
Re: glad to see Congress is tackling the tough issues...
said by psiu:That only works if both Airline A and Airline B fly from your Departure Airport to your Destination Airport. There are a number of cases on flights I make where "You Can't There From Here" unless I fly on a specific Airline.
Or, in this case, let the free market handle it. Oh, Airline A allows in flight calls and Airline B doesn't? Guess where I'm booking my flight...
Re: What about airphone?
said by bn1221:Airfones were removed from most US airlines long ago. It was still used on private and government aircraft, but was permanently decommissioned last year. GogoInflight is using the frequency allocation for additional bandwidth.
the airlines make money off that so that's acceptable - obviously
But, you can expect that the airlines would insist on a revenue sharing agreement if they put a micro-cell in their plane with a dedicated downlink (terrestrial or satellite).
I think it would be helpful to consider the European, Asian, and Middle Eastern airlines that already offer the ability to use your cell phone to make phone calls and send/receive text messages. They appear on phone bills as international roaming, and are priced accordingly.
One of the companies that has been providing this service to airlines for 4 years reports that they have yet to hear a report of a problem precipitated by use of cell phones on planes.
