About twenty years ago, my husband and I were regularly commuting between Mainz and Berlin by car. I had just graduated from high school and he had a decent job in the capital. When traffic was fine, the drive took about seven hours. A long time that we spent listening to music. We equipped our CD changer in the back with a lot of compilations – the playlists of the 2000s – and went onwards with our journey.
That’s what it looked like in detail: The installed speakers in the back seats, the subwoofer in the trunk and the usual speaker in the foot area. In order to drown out the driving noise, we just increased the volume.
