Not the "lowest common denominator" regarding the speakers is important,
for this purpose studios have got Auratone monitors. Important is that
once there's "road noise" (combustion engine noise, wind
noise, tyre running noise), frequencies of sane less compressed music
became inaudible, respectively if you increase the volume, then some
frequencies are to loud. The car hifi, while driving the car, makes
clear if and how much more compression and/or EQing is needed.

The road noise is the most extreme kind of ambient sound, were
listening to music is possible. If you find a mix that fits to a studio
environment and to the car hifi, while driving the car, than you are
save that the mix is ok for any situation.
