Are they pretty good? I just want to support American products so I will be changing out my set up. Im going to Get a Dc xl 15 for sure so far. Im thinking a DC 2k as well becuase I still will be buying from a American build house?

dc 2k if i remember correctly are not built in the us mmats may be one of your few choices on this

and the dc subs like most us built subs stlll use Chinese parts and motors.

atleast if you buy fi you will get american made motors

Fi Q Series Sub Woofers | Fi Q Subwoofer (http://store.ficaraudio.com/q-series/)
hits lower

Fi BL Series Sub Woofers | Fi BL Subwoofer (http://store.ficaraudio.com/bl-series/)

x2 find out that would be great. but i think its basically mmats. I know there are other brand like linear power etc. but no big mono amps.

SE Amplifiers (http://www.arcaudio.com/se-amps.asp)

Yep

Thought so was a little confused lol. Yea the best bet on amps would probably MMATS that arc 4k looks nice too didn't know they were american made but they are a hell of a lot bigger and probably less efficient than MMATS.


Also where are HAT speakers made? Probably china but just curious.

Im most likely running MMATS for everything that i can. Not sure on HAT.
