    What are those sites that talk about bose?

    And how crappy they actually are. I have a friend who wants to get a bose system because he thinks they are the latest and greatest. And according to a friend he has co-oping their are the best in the world.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    First, stop being friends with him, because he co-ops there... He is one of them.

    Then, sneak into his house and put a pillow over his face while he sleeps...

    I'll look I have the links on my other computer.

    No his friend co-ops there.


    I found some.
    http://www.intellexual.net/bose.html


    And tried to explain the construction, rediculous prices, old technologies, etc...


    His response "You don't know anything about sounding good."

    He who argues with a fool is more of a fool, or something like that. Im done with this argument.

    Re: What are those sites that talk about bose?

    wow

    That is some crazy stuff!
    My neighbor swears by his bose lifstyles "system". Occasionaly he will put a strain on that "bass" module to make sure I hear it. It takes all I have to disable the volume limiter on my receiver and let him hear what a real sub sounds like...lol

    I also remember someone posting some pics of the internals of one of the bose systems. I remember it had a toilet paper roll inside of it as part of the construction.

    Unbelievable!

    Re: What are those sites that talk about bose?

    This reminds me....I used to work in a body shop. We'd get in wrecked Yukon Denali's and other expensive cars. Well one day I took out a Bose 6.5" speaker and ripped the cover off. (at this point in time I knew absolutely nothing about car audio other than good brands.) It was a 2 way, with these horribly thin paper cones. Even the tweeter was a cone. It was stiff and felt old. But this speaker was out of a 2006 Denali. That's when I really questioned their quality.

    I agree that bose sux. Whats the little jingle? "No highs no lows must be BOSE"

    haha.

    The reason I quoted you B&W is I have the most recent car audio mag here, and I saaw that Jaguar is offering a B&W sound system option not unlike the ones in your sig. Other that the price of a Jag, and the option package it seems cool. Thought you might like to know if you already didn't.

    heheh you dont know what im up to (changing speakers next year for sure)

    plus your room has no type of room treatment which makes a huge difference and have you rta'd it at all?

    i have room treatment in about 25% of the room

    btw throw your speakers on my setup and holy smokes

    im just gonna hold off for that for two reasons 1. broke right now 2.they might come out with something new by this time next year.

    i kind of regret getting the denon 2807 cause theirs new receivers coming out in the next 2 months from denon that do all the high res decoding.
