Turned it up to 30 for shits and giggles and man this thing cranks! couldn't imagine going much higher, but it still had room to go. I wouldn't go as far to say its a "waste" on a theme like this but, it's a shame Stern games like AC/DC and Met don't jam like this machine...even with sub-mods etc Thoughts?

It's pc sound driven so the output is pretty good. Then a couple car speakers and 8" sub. It's decent for sure. Personally, I think the set up on bop2.0 sounds a lot better. I used a lepai 168 amp, a 10" sub and 2 5.25" clarions. The whole things was under $100.

Couldn't agree more. The problem with the Stern audio isn't simply hardware...the audio samples they include suck. I upgraded my AC/DC hardware but is still sounds mediocre at best. Kind of amazing rock band licensee's don't have more balls to require high quality samples and great audio. Oh well.

You mod'd the Oz system?

I agree, the audio quality is excellent, my only gripe is, at least on mine, that there's a constant low buzz that seems to follow the intensity of the LEDs.

Beat me to it. I thought WOZ sounded great until I played my BOP 2.0 for the first time. That thing with the option speaker kit is amazing.

The problem with cranking WOZ up is that the "Ting" noise from the Woz lanes = driving a 16 penny nail into your ear.

I don;t own it so I didn't chime in, but it seems to me the highs would be way to grating...like the ting forge sounds in LOTR

Yeah I leave the volume on WOZ nearly off because it is so annoying. Sure the sound quality is pretty good, but content is more important to me. ACDC and STLE are cranked up. Content over quality any day - I'd rather watch a pre-season NFL game on a bad black and white TV than a World Cup Soccer Final match on an 80 inch 4k monitor...

The BOP 2.0 sound is awesome, no question.
