    Best Audio Brands

    I've been under the impression that the best...


    headunit=alpine (alpine and pioneer are the only 2 headunits proven not to skip)
    full range speaker=boston acoustics (reproduces sounds perfectly)
    amp=rockford fosgate (pure power)
    sub=kicker square (pounds like no other)


    Is this true or is there better equipment... also what about bose aren't they suppose to be pretty good... I haven't heard of many people having after market bose systems in their vehicles.

    what do yall think?

    Their home gear ***** too. Bose is for metrosexuals, or whatever they are calling gay guys in the closet these days, cute but no output.

    Bose ain't all that bad, my moms new cady has a stock bose system and it rocks loud man! And it's extremley clear, you can't fight that. But there home audio is way overrated. They got there name out there and thats why everyone, who knows nothin', thinks they are amazing...

    And you said Kicker of Course Kicker is the Greatest brand alive...lol

    Alpine Head units, extremley amazing!
    Full ranges-Boston, MB's, all amazing things
    Amp-Kicker amps rock!

    Re: Best Audio Brands

    Yeah i dont mean to come out of no where but bose does not **** for home audio at least the 201 series and up (i must be a metro ******). The cubes are a different story for full range. It might be a better idea to give him a least of the most prominent ****** brands like legacy, pryamid, jensen, audiovox, blitz, dual, pyle, and sony and others that i cannot think of right now.

    Re: Best Audio Brands

    Sound is completley subjective which is what makes this hobby so awesome. Everyone has different likes and hears things differently. My personal preferences....

    HU: Alpine, Eclipse, Clarion
    Spkrs: MB QUart, Focal, Boston Acoustic
    Amps: PPI, Soundstream
    Subs: JL Audio, Kicker (Solo Baric)

    I am personally into sound quality as opposed to spl so those are not necessarily the loudest but some of the cleanest amongst the many other brands that are out there.

    Re: Best Audio Brands

    H/U: McIntosh, eclipse, nakamichi, alpine
    speakers: dynaudio, focal, boston, rainbow
    amps: zapco, brax, McIntosh
    subs: too many to list.

    all of these things are very opinionated. those brands that i listed happen to be what i like. they may not be what someone else thinks is the best. that is the beauty of this hobby is that there simply is no best because nobody can tell you what sounds good to you. it is like women, some guys like hefty chicks, others dont, some like red heads, others like blondes. it is all what you think sounds best to your ears.

    Re: Best Audio Brands

    Head units would be Eclipse and the Pioneer ODR gear (UK only)
    Speakers, Dynaudio, Focal, Rainbow, DLS
    Amps, ARC AUDIO, DLS, Mcintosh, Brax, Zapco etc.


    the stuff you listed is on the low end of good.

    Re: Best Audio Brands

    OK, first off, Pyramid's hyper pro subs are EXCELLENT for the $30/sub price tag. They also have an amp that will do an honest 1600 RMS, but I've yet to find it what model. Every else you should avoid.

    Bose does make good stuff. $800 car sound system good? Hell no. They are like Audiobahn: good, but insanely overpriced.

    Jensen USED to make good amps, I have one of them.

    Uhmm... anyway.

    HU: Alpine, Clarion
    Speakers: Rainbow, DLS, OZ audio
    Amps: Incriminator Audio
    Subs: Incriminator Audio, Kicker, JL, RE, Oz

    You'll notice I only put one brand down for amps. Yeah, have you seen what the 20.1 does? Holy ****.
