    They could care less. Only care about cheapest possible, totally over looking quality, design, where the money is going, long term durability, quality control, etc. etc. Don't get me going.

    Re: what's up with sonic electronix?

    I'm local lol, but I'd still rather buy from here. Problem is SE is a much bigger company now than they used to be. One of my applicants does a lot of pickups for them when stuff comes in from shipping and they're a bit overwhelmed to say the least.

    They can sell cheap the same way Costco does. It sucks, yes, but it's partly on the fact they have bigger wallets and can buy in large quantites. The distributors want to work with them because it's a guaranteed check, but it does harm the smaller guys who don't have the cash to dole out.

    Both Jim and Denim covered it pretty well with the Authorized comment, too. Sonic has huge stock, but they're not authorized vendors of everything they sell. I know they can honor JBL and NVX as well as a few other brands, but JL, DLS (used to stock), and other high-end companies won't, so if the stuff breaks and you're outside of the SE warranty period, you're effed. Not to mention you have to deal with their customer support network and, while the guys know their stuff fairly well (at least the few I've face-to-faced with), their knowledge is limited to their training. When you talk to one of the vendors here, you know they pick their stock based on what they know and like. Mylows isn't going to carry bum equipment, Vertex isn't, and trumpet definitely won't. Have you seen his site lately? Has a whole blog dedicated to maximizing the benefit of new equipment. That's CS that the online BB retailers (SE included) don't have the staff on hand to handle.

    Keep in mind I'm not trash-talking SE. They worked hard to get where they are with their huge online stock and two shipping centers. That being said, I'd still rather go with one of the vendors here because the transaction is truly one-on-one like it used to be.

    Re: what's up with sonic electronix?

    sonic is a great choice for people like me

    I live a good hour from dallas/fort worth.

    The few shops that are good are even further ...more like an hour and a half.
    You're talking 3 hours round trip for some decent RCA cables or a basic sub.

    or I can order online and use that same 3 hour drive time to install the stuff I bought.

    edit: 4 hours.
    you can just go to a shop and buy something with out looking around.

    It's because they see you guys as experts in the field. Isn't that how most people sign up? I know those were my reasons. I guess some just do it for the classifieds.

    It's just a new school of though. Most people these days are used to shopping online and weren't around for when you could only go to a local shop and people were required to know about their stuff. It's kinda sad, really. I remember being a JL loyalist and thinking Orion, PG, and Arc were trash and just for people trying to be different. Just gotta know how to ask the right questions if you're the buyer or give the right info/pitch if you're the vendor.

    Re: what's up with sonic electronix?

    I'd rather give local guys my business and I would pay 300 for an amp I could online for 250 from an authorized, local dealer as it's just easier to remedy a problem if it comes up. That being said I've bought things here and there from Sonic and never had a problem.

    Guy I work with though bought a JVC headunit from them that was having some problems and he sent it back and hasn't heard anything in 4 months. So.... I guess depending on how much you care about the almighty dollar or truly getting good customer service is the kicker.

    I got my kenwood 8105d that only does 500wrms at 2ohms for $200 from best buy. stupid stupid stupid!



    I don't completely understand what's going on here......
    Well since no one has said it yet I will say it....the mbq onyx does not do 2k, it does more like 1700-1800ish. Its just a rebadged Hifonics Hfi200d, which can be had for even less than the mbq.

    Re: what's up with sonic electronix?

    i would love to support my local retailers but places like sonic are making it harder and harder for example a friend of mind who is a re dealer sells the dts 1500 for 439 plus tax but sonic has the amp for 139 shipped and because im in cali i get all my products from them next day its just to hard to beat,i could see if we were talking 40 to 50 dollars more but on some stuff they are more then half off there even cheaper when they buy old stock

    Re: what's up with sonic electronix?

    the only issue i have with sonice electronix is the waiting game for the product to get to me, but not their fault just impatient lol. have done plenty of transactions with them and never had any issues with them. sometimes i find the same product on their website, on their ebay store for cheaper. their ebay store is where i first found out about sonic electronix forever ago and they are now my first choice to buy esp when since most my builds i try to do on a budget and cant beat their prices. Headunits always seem to be the lowest price around. Great customer service as well. its a plus to that most their items are always free shipping.
