    American made subs?

    I know it seems trivial, but with all of the choices of quality subs out there maybe made in the good ol' USA will whittle the list down some. I tried a search but the search button = teh ****. Soooo, what subs are 100% domestic? Or are there any?

    A google search kept returning American Bass. Opinions on this sub and/or what model I should be looking at?

    No subs are 100% domestic that I am aware of... some part of the sub will be imported. There are quite a few that are assembled in the USA and that use quite a few USA made parts.

    these are made in the USA (minus the parts that had to be imported due to slack Americans and not making the stuff) LOL

    Re: American made subs?

    JL Audio makes subs that are 100% proprietary, but even they probably import many of their copywritten parts. Like said above, I dount anyone makes a 100% American made sub these days. We've let our industrial base go to hell in this country.

    Most every company gets their parts from China, and some assemble them here in the US of A. I know of one company that's coming that will make their gear with all domestic parts.

    Really... who? Even a lot of simple things like raw wire is made over seas these days. Not to mention, even raw materials like steel.

    Re: American made subs?

    people wont pay the amount that american made stuff cost and america doesnt offer baskets, magnets or cones that im aware of. american build houses have great quality but with that comes a price. so it has forced most company's to go overseas witch isnt a problem if you are very clear on what you want they can build it just as good as americans at a fraction of the price but it takes a lot of trial and error.
