I have it as well. I got it when I was 14 years old. I used to listen to my CD player religiously. Then my dad would take me shooting. After I started driving, I put $5k worth of audio equipment in my car. This was no Best Buy boom boom stereo. I had a serious set up. 125 watts going to each of the eight 6.5" mids and I had two 12" subs in a 7 cubic foot ported box tuned to 34 Hz. I benched the amp for the speakers at just over 1000 watts RMS and the amp for the speakers at 2400 watts RMS. For those of you who read that and didn't understand any of it, most people couldn't sit in the car for more than a few seconds with the volume turned up. Add some more shooting, concerts and motorcycles in the mix.

It really sucks having it but there's nothing I can do now. I never tested my hearing loss but I don't believe it is that bad. My ears are still pretty sharp. I could have recovered a little bit though, that was about 4 or 5 years ago. If I could do it all over again, I would have never of bought that stereo. You live and learn, I guess.
