    Re: just what exactly do you guys mean by "old school"?

    American Made amps in Tempe and Phoenix AZ. Rockford Fosgate, Orion, MTX, Phoenix Gold....

    Audio Control EQT's, Coustic Amp460, Linear Power, Ads Powerplate. Altec Lansing components, USD Waveguides, Stillwater Designs (Gold Lettering), Punch45, Punch75, Punch150, Power300, Power650, Power1000, Orion 225HCCA, 250HCCA, XTreme100, Xtreme Subs, PPI Art Series amps, M&M Godfathers, 6 green button Alpine , 7909, McIntosh MX5000, MCD5000, MC4000M. When Rear Fill was king, Centerchannels ruled, kickpanels were non-existant. When SQ meant 8 15's and a pair of 4x6 plates. Pioneer just introduced the Supertuner FM tuner.
    Sony ES was king and Eclipse didn't exist. When Clarion was a joke and Jensen Quadrax 6x9's were the best. Old School now is a state of mind. A time to take you back to the roots of car audio. A time when 400w was alot, and 5000w was unheard of. Back before Dampner, when a true system was hooked up with 4g wire, no "big 3" or caps. When IASCA was formed from the Car Audio Nationals (Alpine Nationals), When USAC was just for SPL.

    We remember the time when you used Optima (Radio Shack) free air woofers, a 7-band 250w Pyramid Graphic EQ crusing down the local drag while blasting "Time for a Soda".

    Aaaaaaa....those were the days.

    Re: just what exactly do you guys mean by "old school"?

    Real old school?

    Audiomobile, Zapco (the three piece amps), Craig Powerplay, Becker, Alphasonik (german-made), Proton, Autotek (AMERICAN made, PRE-Hifonics), Fosgate Audionics, Sanyo PA6100 amps, EPI LS-70 plates, BABB car speakers, Pyle (from Huntington IN), M&M, Monolithic, ODI Redline speakers, Linear Power, Visonik (German-made), using Dynaudio drivers from Madisound in cars, Gold Sound, Altec-Lansing 6x9-4B's, Deltasonik, AFS Kriket, Blaupunkt New York cassette decks, Fultron (before they became Memphis), Concord, Technics car audio.

    Renting an old building, getting three of your buddies together, and starting a car stereo shop in a tiny south GA town.

    When car stereo contests were some dude with an old EV or Shure RTA and a hand-held SPL meter.

    When you had to travel HALF A STATE to even GET to a car audio contest (and winning it!).

    When putting a baffle over the tire well in an '84 Z-28 and mounting woofers in there, was considered HIGH TECH.

    When DIN cables reigned supreme for preamp signal cables, at Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer and Technics.

    When CD players for cars were a BRAND NEW thing, and were way too expensive for almost anyone to afford (and they SKIPPED... a LOT).

    When building a wall for woofers, behind the front seats of a car, was considered absolutely impossibly insane (but we did it anyway!).

    When the Kicker Black Beauty Astro van (9 18" Comps, plus midbass and highs, running from 14 bridged Linear Power 5002 amps) was the loudest thing anyone had heard (155.5 dB in 1989!).

    The first Masters Car Audio Contest in Athens GA (where Richard Clark only came in SECOND place, though he SHOULD have won).

    When certain people from Florida (who will not be named ) were caught CHEATING at a contest, with hidden Rockford-Fosgate Power 1000 amps (hidden INSIDE a sub enclosure), in a Suburban that CLAIMED to only be powered by a bunch of Punch 45 amps (I saw this in person!).

    Yeah, those were interesting times...

    Regards,
    Gordon.

    Oh, and who could forget- Nakamichi auto-reverse cassette decks, that actually POPPED THE TAPE OUT, PHYSICALLY FLIPPED IT and PUT IT BACK IN AUTOMATICALLY, to change tape directions. Yep, the famous Nak Dragon car deck...
