    RIP Soundman Car Audio

    Learned something interesting on my trip to Sonic Electronix today. Met with Jordan and Cody (formerly of Soundman) and found out Soundman closed their doors in the last couple weeks. There will be one member of Soundman opening a small garage and doing nothing but iPad installs. Those looking for McIntosh, Hybrid, and Morel will have to search elsewhere.

    RIP Soundman

    Don't know many big online companies selling Mc, Hybrid, and Morel, though. WoofersETC is pretty much it.

    I can't speak as a Morel dealer, but they're not known as a company that allows Internet sales. McIntosh is out of car audio so they probably don't give a rip, and HAT could be similar to Morel in their policy for Internet sales.

    As for Soundman Car Audio, let's wait for something official coming from Doug Bernards before we let this thread get out of hand. I think it's slanderous to say they've closed shop without an official statement from the company. Their Facebook page announced a new episode of Amplified today.

    I'm not trying to be inflammatory, just passing on the news I received today. Have also heard it from an applicant of mine whose friend worked for Soundman. I'm not happy about them going out of business myself. They'll be missed.

    I dont see how they would be going out of business though... Every episode they are doing a new Ipad dash, and at $1,200 a pop, I would think that would be enough to keep the lights on and put a few bucks in your pocket.
