    MB Quart = Crap?

    Was talking to a friend of mine who runs a pro audio shop. This guy knows what he's talking about as he has built several vehicles that take first place in national sound quality competitions. Even took 2nd internationally and is featured in magazines. He said MB Quarts are garbage and that they are made in Korea, (or somewhere over in the far East) and are owned and operated by the same people who own Rockfart Fosgayt. That was a bit disappointing to my knowledge as I own a set of MB Quarty components. They sound good to me. Just wondering what you guys had to say about this. And if MB Quart is garbage what is considered quality?

    Umm...

    I would exactly consider MB Quart "garbage" at all...proof that ignorance can hide in some strange places



    Of course, compared to Rainbows or Morels they would sound inferior, but that's not a fair comparison...perhaps he's too used to the high end to realize what good deals are on the lower end of the spectrum or he's just being snotty, which is most likely.

    Re: MB Quart = Crap?

    Yeah, I guess he is very used to high high end stuff. I mean this guy uses 5000 + dollar head units. He's doing $20k + installs so yeah I guess you could say we're talking about a whole other realm of car audio. But I guess to him MBs are like how I view my stock speakers.

    Re: MB Quart = Crap?

    MB Quart does not ****. Their top of the line are very good, and the lower lines have good solid build quality. Some don't like their sound that much, but that is personal preference.

    And it doesn't matter who owns them. Fiat owns Ferrari and Maserati, don't they?

    And no, they aren't Korean or anywhere outside of Germany. Unless Microphon Bau isn't German! :P
    And no, they aren't even made in Korea or anywhere else, unless Obbrigheim isn't in Germany! :P

    The place is Sounds Impossible in Highlands, NJ. Anyway, yeah everything is relative. Everytime I listen to my car stereo I'm happy. I love the sound of my speakers and sub. See this is why they make stock speakers. So people can really appreciate the aftermarket stuff.
