When it comes to making the best-sounding record, Phil Vassar has an interesting gauge - his car radio. Even though he records his albums on the best, most expensive studio equipment, the true test is how it sounds on the smallest, cheapest sound system available. "We always mix the song down and put it a CD and then take it out to the car and that's how we gage it," revealed Phil. "You go through all this elaborate equipment and then run it through your $30.00 speakers to see what it sounds like, and if it sounds good on that, then you know it's good."
