    US amps makes a very solid amplifier.

    Crossfire makes decent speakers and OZ audio isn't bad either.

    not top of the line stuff, but deffinately not the bottom of the barel either!

    Where are you located that makes you think that they aren't well known brands?

    i'd agree that those aren't well known aka 'mainstream' i actually just recently heard about crossfire's stuff.

    what i would like to know is: why do us car audio companies choose the lamest names? usamps? crossfire? zapco?!!!

    man - and you're in the US and they aren't main stream?

    ****, I've had my head in competition WAYYYYY too long....lol

    I ran a 2000w x 2 amp from USAmps 4 years ago. That stuff is rock solid.

    Crossfire has also been around for quite a while. Most people know the subs.

    OZ Audio, well, that's just about the only one I could see not being well known. Not great, but not Jensen either...lol

    I have to disagree on the Oz Audio. early to mid 90's Oz Audio (with the purple baskets) were phenominal drivers. They were top notch in the $350 component range. Maybe only slightly edged out by the A/D/S carbon fiber speakers. Yes there were better, but everyone changed for the weaker - Oz Audio, MB Quart, Phoenix Gold.

    Ahhh, the 90's in Car Audio. Those were the days!

    90s were the glory days.

    Blop, have you been on www.talkaudio.co.uk? I know a few guys on there have all of the brands that you have listed.

    I agree, they WERE better back then, not so much now...

    and I was under the impression that we were talking about current products...nothing was ever mentioned about past years....lol
