Hey guys,

I am in China (Kevin) for the next 5 days visiting the factories we work with to make our products! I do not have access to Facebook or any other form of social media as they block all of it here, but I know many of you were wanting to see pictures through out the trip, so I figured I would make a thread where every night I will post experiences of the trip.

It is 6:30 AM here as I type this, so just waking up to my first full day here, but took a few pictures last night after leaving the air port and grabbing a late dinner! Food is certainly interesting out here to say the least! Things I can already tell work much differently out here..more info to come on that later :p.

The factory I must say is treating me very well since getting out here! Excited to go over some new product designs with them today!

Yup...been there done that. Dongguan, Shenzhen...visiting audio factories that build audio equipment for my company. Was just there 2 months ago. Drop me a line if you want to share ideas. I work in commercial / professional audio (not car audio) but I do know that a couple of the factories we work with build car audio drivers and equipment.

People cry about paying the china prices for subs. Multiply that by 5 and see how much of this stuff would sell.

It's sad, but there it is. Oppressive taxation and regulation here and we simply can't compete with state subsidized slave labor. I don't think people know how much of their "american made" woofers actually come from China..

Well the currency exchange rate is about 5 or 6 yan to 1 usd so that helps put things in prospective.

I hate to point this out...but if they have the extra money laying around to take trips like this, I dont think the bitching about 4 or 5 of you guys have been doing is covering it.
Not nuthuggin, just pointing it out.
I think what really happens is people hear about how "bad" they are as a company, then see the older reviews/talks about them and decide to buy. You bought the camera he took those pics with. And the plane ticket. As well as the hotel. you even bought him that beer! Id say he appreciated that.

I have to say, after being here for a day - I would have to agree. It really is hard to see "How good we have it" until you visit a country such as China. Very neat country though, and very friendly people all over it seems.

Brb, reverting to insults because i have no grounds to base an argument upon because I'm wrong and I know it.
If I wasnt absolutely sure you carried an extra gene in your pool, I would continue to argue this. However, let me take this another route by asking a very simple question. Do you wanna ****? Lmk. You seem like the "talk dirty to me" type. I like that.

I know that build house, who have you been hangin out with there from build house?

I figured it would have been a larger building actually. Looks like they use the same coil collars for all drivers though, I have a few of those here.

SkarAudio
09-13-2012, 04:43 PM
The photo's don't do justice, but the factory is actually very large. 5 Separate ware house buildings as well as a large office head quarter type building that is 5 floors. I was impressed when pulling in that it was actually that large.
