I went into my local caraudio store the other day and asked the same guy i always talk to about Fi. He said he didnt know anything about them. So i showed him the web site and he told me about Identity Audio. He said this company makes subs and then allows people to sell them under the name they choose and they can also add on things to make them seem more custom (bp power, copper coils..ect.).

Is this true?

he also said they arent that great at all and are really pretty cheap subs.

is this true?

wow...well i know Fi is its own company, and makes all the subs..and im sure that they are not crap do to the fact that people been running them way over the rms and they have no problems... you got to remember those stores want you to buy there stuff so they are going to say other junk is crap...

oh by no means did i believe everything he said. its the idientity audio company thing that had me flustered.

hes a nice guy too and he knows i know enough about audio that he cant sell me crap. even though he did say he could get my type e to pound (i laughed)

but ill search identity and see what i can find on them.

Heres the deal, Scott Atwell worked for REAudio, and helped in the making of their subs, when they sold out(and the prices got jacked up), he went out on his own and created Fi, which makes great subs for a good price. NOW he is also going to be working with Ascendant Audio on their new line of subs (hopefull coming out in July he says). He will also still be working on his own company(Fi) too.

I know this because he occasionaly comes onto one of the other forums (www.ecoustics .com), that I am a member of and will update us.

and he has his own forum at soundsolutionsaudio.com (http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/forum/index.php?showforum=51)

ask him about his subs, and identity audio, or whomever they are. better yet, have that salesman drop by and ask.....




wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeee :peace:

oh and btw, from what I've heard Scott has some of the best customer service there is. Quite often HE will be the one who answers your questions and he is usually pretty prompt about it too.

although, a local shop here where i live (razors edge audio) had all of their drivers built by FI. they just put on theyre company logo onto the dustcap. maybe thats what he was talking about. small owned audio shops will tend to buy popular, good performing products and pass it on as theyre own considering most people dont know the difference.

better question would be "Why would I get some Identity Audio?"

again, I don't believe that...as far as I know FI has only built their OWN drivers, and the only other company I know of that Scott is working with is AA

yeah he was saying he could sell some kurtz audio subs and sell them if he wanted.

Oh, I guess I better not buy that Eclipse Ti 15 I've been wanting. I mean, who would want some shoddy chinese piece of **** that's made with TC Sounds parts? I mean, if it isn't their own parts, it must ****!

:uhoh: I hate ****ing idiots like that. So many companies use parts that other companies use, but that does not make them the same or even similar. Let alone, Fi looks NOTHING like identity, so I don't even see how what he said has a shred of doubtful truth to it. Some cockhead tried to tell me that my SX15 is the same thing as every other sub out there with the same 12 spoke basket.

Don't thank him, he's a dummy...

Well, you don't know much to begin with... so perhaps you should just give it up... bud.
