    12volt will be 42volt with less amps, and thinner wire for weight reduction and space saving... and you'll do OEM only replacemnts. the aftermarket will be software based only, with no need for hardware changes to make improvements.

    car audio will be obsolete by 2020 and upgrades will only occur in cars that were made before 2009. after that, everything will be controlled thru a centralized control unit. similar to caddys today

    by 2020 think we will have oem sound systems that will trump the aftermarket of today?

    i've read some amazing reviews of the OEM system dynaudio did for VW and volvo... I dont think its too far off, if people are willing to pay the money, it will get built.

    I'd like to believe Class-D and similar designs will evolve to the point where there's no longer a quality tradeoff vs. stupidly inefficient designs....but we'll see.

    CAR:all amps will be 100% efficient and be able to run off as little as 5V and still be able to produce like, 4000watts at 4ohm...
    stock systems will all include things like timealignment, and parametric and graphic eq, and x-overs in the deck, will all run 3 way speakers equivalebt to rainbow/focal/dynaudio etc etc etc

    and will have 8" subs that can play as low and loud as an 18 or 15, while oly getting 100wrms.

    home:even basic hi-fi systems will have basically what i mentioned above...
