Infinity comps, Orion subs and amps
He had an aftermarket sunroof put in, and the fabric isnt really even glued right now, but you dont notice it unless the sunroof is open. In all reality he really should clean it up, but he just doesnt have the time. It still looks good though, and isnt ripped or anything, so like I said, visually no big deal. For him, it wouldnt be as easy as what you said, but thanks for that tip, when I do my car, I will have to remember about that.Originally Posted by killerfishes
I don't REALLY fall into any of those categories. I just get what I like (for the budget) and get it wherever it's cheapest. My Kenwood came from Crutchfield (as did the one I had before it that got ripped off; they were giving away Sirius tuners both times), but my satellite speakers (which I demo'ed at Fry's) came from ikesound.com and my two subs (soon to be four ) came from eBay; so did both of my amps. My system in its current form was well under $1000 and easily runs with systems that have allegedly better components (MB Quart comes to mind) that cost three times as much. No complaints here.
What kind of subs do you have? And if you were really listening to demanding songs, companies like MB Quart would outperform anything that cost 3x less, but for most of the songs that most people listen to here, you are right, they are similar. Basically, you never realize how much better the other brands are until you listen to them for a while, then go back to the old stuff you had. Of course, if you never upgrade, then you should always be happyOriginally Posted by JW™
An example of this is with headphones. Before, I just used a cheap old pair. Then I bought a pair of the 50 dollar sony ones, and was amazed with how nice they sounded. My brother then got the 150 dollar ones, and I ended up getting the same ones, because after listening to my brothers, mine jsut didnt cut it anymore. Just recently, on a different message board, someone had said how they cant even listen to the model of headphones I have anymore because the ones he has now are just too much better. So moral is, if you want to save money, never go trying new things, hehe
I totally agree Matt...
once you go high(er) end...it's really difficult to settle for anything lower....
ignorance is bliss sometime....seriously
Usually just online brands for subs (went through eD, RE, and Adire). Components have always been higher end store stuff (CDT-61, JL XR650CSi).
Pioneer DEH7600MP, Autotek MX-800.4, JL Audio XR650-CSi, Adire Audio Shiva

All my speakers are Infinity Reference series. I listen to everything from classical to rock. And, I've listened to some of my test tracks on everything from Radio Shack specials to MB Quart and Boston Acoustics. My ears cannot tell the difference with the more expensive parts, and if I can't tell the difference, why would I spend that kind of money? Because someone else thinks I should? Pretty soon someone will come along and tell me to dump my $200 pair of US Acoustics amps for $1000 in Audiobahn or something...
Good speaker choice thats what i got to. And all i have to say is the sound is amazing. the bass is deep, clean and crisp.Originally Posted by JW™
