    let me guess - they sell pioneer and kenwood?

    whatever they say is most likely a ploy to get you to buy their ****. they want money, they dont give a **** who you are, so they tell you their (overpriced) stuff is better.

    hook, line, and sinker.

    ask them if they can show you a frequency response graph with 1 watt at 1 meter to show how good of a response they have. or some technical question about somthing. ask them what 'tuning' the box (if its ported) they are selling you is. i bet they will be like

    I'm guessing this shop sells Pioneer, Kenwood, JL, and Earthquake.

    Try some other places and demo as much equipment as you can. Base your opinion on what you like. After all, you're the one who has to listen to it day in and day out, not us nor the guys at that shop.

    Kenwood has some very good Head units and speakers. There amps a decent. There subs are kinda cheap.

    Don't let them talk you out of what you want to do. Alpine makes very good Head units.

    Well it sounds like they know a few things. But the point still stands that they are just trying to sell there equipment.

    Dude what is your budget. What are you looking for. What music do you listen to. What car do you have. SQ or SPL or SQL.

    I'll help you find some good equipment.

    Alipine units are one of the best HU, hands down. What the F are they talking about. Just take your time, do some research and in the end you will have exactly what you want.





    HU: Kenwood Excelon DDX-7015
    Sub Amp: US amps MD2D
    Sub: 12" RE XXX
    Comp Amp: SS Reference 700s
    Comps: CDT HD-62
    Rearfill: CDT CL-6X
    Box: 2.5 cuft after displacement
    Kinetik HC1800
    OG 185a HO Alt
    100 sq ft eDead
    Custom Trunk

    All the profit for that guys commission check is in pioneer and kenwood. Pretty much any jl subs is going to give u superior sq, alpine is amazing(arguably the best). Sound is really subjective so he may just be deaf.

    i can argue with last years eclispe - or the old dennon RF hu with no preamp.

    but i own an alpine cda9827, and i love it. alpine+pioneer have some of the best hu's out (imo) for the price.

    stick around here. READ everyhing thats going on, read people signatures and find out what they are using. and do NOT post "this vs this" or "should i buy these" threads.


    just stick around, read, maybe a few questions and comments here and there, but most importantly, READ AND LEARN before you buy ANYTHING. you will be very dissapointed if you buy somthing that ***** a nutsac.
