View Full Version : New Old Schooler

07-30-2009, 09:06 PM
Hello all! Great to be here. Starting a new system and decided to check into some of the forums floating around and here I am. I'm old school when it comes to amplification but would rather go new school for signal reproduction and sending. Purist at heart but like to walk quietly with a "big bang" lurking beneath. Only thing I have worth mentioning right now is my Hifonics Boltar Series VIII. I'm going to be running old school power but will be looking into a head-unit without a disc drive - something with a cross-over and usb compatibility.
Anyways , hope to talk to few of you about installs , recommendations , and just my general lack of knowledge as I haven't put a system together for probably 12-15 years. when I was into the scene , it was all about Hifonics Series VII-VII , Orion HCCA , PPI , and Rockford Power series amps. Can't forget about Kenwood 920's and Alpine either! See ya around!;)

Ahhh! Expected to hear a few people pushing new gear. I'm not against it especially since the newer hardware is way more efficient. Been doing installs since the mid 80's. A lot has definitely changed! Thanks for the greets guys! A Boltar on mids - wow!
