WOW, are you sure there isn't anything that is in the background that my have flared this up? I mean for guys that are at the showes and spreading the name on regular basis, I son't understand the stance DD has taken. For guys like me who are every now and then at a show, I can understand, but not guys like you. That would be like telling John Force he has to send his engines back to the manufacture for rebuilds between rounds.

I just dont get it, there must me more to the story

i guess you dont know steve at dd do you i know i caught him on a bad day he sometimes pms's and has in the past been a **** sometimes but come on i did get pissed at him over it but he was a real tool about it and hung up no need to disrespect me like that i always talked highly of dd and thats the new rules for everyone he told me and i needed to follow them like everyone else

build so far will be .
16 t3 mids and tweets
4 t3 tss 12s
7 kinetik 2400s
2 kicker 650.4 4ch
alpine deck changer
audio control 3.1
240 ohio alt
sub amps 4 sundown 3000d ? still not 100% sure

kmanian
04-07-2008, 12:37 AM
I ahve a 9910 that I was going to sell/trade, then looked at it again and decided to keep it, but if that is the way DD rolls, screw it, I'll keep my Cmass and try out some T3 instead of the DD. The truth is that if the guy has freekin mood swings like a woman then he souldn't be dealing with customers. Look at what he has lost, the power of "word of mouth advertising" which we all know is the most powerful tool any company has. they can spend 10's of thousands of dollars to get their name out, but you can say 10 words and change someones mind. not that my not using the 9910 will do anything to them, but the chain reaction of the people that you come in contact can.

That is to bad.

looks like its gunna be a sick install. ***** about your DD experience. i can handle people being rude from a company, its just my personality. what i cant handle is the fact that you can call up DD 5 times in 1 week on a price for the same item and get 5 different prices. people can have a bad day and be rude, but theres no excuse for getting so many different prices on the same gear. good luck with the T3 stuff mang.
