    Re: DD haters

    They more than likely felt that he wasn't pushing their products hard enough and decided to go a different direction. I've seen it happen frequently and they are hardly the only company doing it. If you aren't ordering their required minimum per year to be a dealer they will find someone else that will.

    Very true, and if you are a current dealer then you are aware of your contract.

    Yep exactly. I've never been on that side of things, always been an installer/sales but i'm aware of how some aspects of the business works. Who knows, maybe some day i'll dabble in the idea of running my own shop.

    Never understood the wish for looks. Maybe in some rare cases sure, but other then that...naw.

    Okc is the worse foe territory restrictions as they virtually do not exhist. Yet they still have various requirments on quotas.

    Many companies do push for quotas but that is a quickly diimg market. I only have one company we sell at the shop that still has a quota and it is in no way a firm quota. Everyone else had buy ins to secure an area of sales protection.

    Apparently you troll here a lot as well. Either you're a troll or never seen a Brazilian amp. Secondly, DD is by far not the end-all be-all of car audio. The DD-Z sub is an awesome platform, but everything else they make is pretty comparable to a dozen other things you could have.

    About the only thing DD is really ahead of the pack with is the fanboys' level of douchbaggery. Frankly it's the attitude of the DD fanboys why I'd never touch their product.

    What I had to start with they aren't the best but they did the numbers and didn't look half bad, and that was going off 15year old thinking I was new back to the game, I have learned a **** ton from people just like you over the last couple months and appreciate everything you all have to say, hence why all that is gone and my 15" IA death rows are being built right now and by the time they arrive so will two IA 20.1s for power, still gonna use the PA xover and run three way active front with CDT, all elec already done and most of deadening, so as you see I have learned a lot from you guys don't be an azz just because you asked a question and I answered with reasons for my answers in a very simple manner, if you are gonna fight with every answer then why ask, is someone not allowed to not like something just because they don't like how it looks? If you gave me one I would run it till I could sell it and then buy something else, no hate just no love for them that's all

    Re: DD haters

    DD's amps are made in Korea...as are so many other amps. I worked for DD in Sales a few years ago, and DD amps then were QC'd at the factory only. Their subs, I know quite a few of the craftsmen and women who built the subwoofers. They cost more because they aren't built on an assembly line with robots, they are built by hand, glued by hand, soldered by hand. They were very good subwoofers. I can only attest to what I know back in 2009...I don't know about the build quality now.

    Re: DD haters

    Amplifier QC was still only done over seas (up to 2011 anyway) and the assembly was still done here on most of the drivers. However, the assembly process and personal at that time generated it's own issues in some cases. I know the staff has changed numerous times since then as they have a high turn over ratio.

    Which is sad to me, I feel that if both companies (DD and SQ) could have no glass ceiling so to speak.

    Dude, you offered your opinion, he offered his. No need to jump on him for saying his different viewpoint.

    Re: DD haters

    my dd3510's slapped hard as hell and i bought them for $150. they both had coil rub. after giving dd $260 for recones they still sit in my closet. i love the product but if im buying new it will be from another company that doesnt have to over charge. i know you get what you pay for but sometimes that investment isnt worth it when you can buy an equal product for almost half the price

    Obviously a competitor is going to talk **** about their product. He even goes as far as to criticize the "made in USA" sticker.. really?
