Re: ADS comps??
a/d/s made phenomenal high quality products for many years, however that said they are now owned by DEI Electronics and are no were near the company that they used to be (cheap foriegn built).
The older "is" Series components are original a/d/s company products the newer "cs" versions are DEI designs. The new ones look decent and probably sound very good but they certainly do not have the prestige that the older a/d/s components have.
There was a review done in the "review" section on the 346cs set and it was very favorable.
1995 Oriental Blue BMW 525i 5 Speed
Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.
