My car is small enough that if I want to talk to someone in the back seat I just say it out loud, I don't need a PA system.

Seriously the only time I've ever seen a vehicle with a PA system it's been a public safety thing (police, etc.). On TV you see political candidates driving around with messages over the loud speaker. I guess those huge stretch limos would need one too (for the inside).

They are quite funny to yell at people on the street when you drive by. My buddy has on hooked up to his truck CB radio. Not the loudest things ever but you will definitely turn some heads.

My buddy and I had an old POS cop car that we ghetto-rigged a big PA speaker to to advertise our concert once. Broke down in Chicago IIRC, good concert though.

I would post a video of Ali G In Da House, but there's a lot of cursing.

Basically to have fun with. Make animal sounds as I drive by people, etc. Make funny comments with the mic.

My supervisor and I were just talking about car PA systems last week. He told me he had one in his car in high school and that he got in trouble for it a lot. Even used it on his high school principal once.

I'm pretty sure they are illegal in some states....I think basically they don't want you driving around blaring police sirens, lol.....
