    Re: American made subs?

    Not many if any are 100 % american made anymore, but a short list would be
    Atomic
    Mmats
    Incriminator audio
    Fi car audio
    Digital designs
    If you are looking for something similar to the V.1 W6 in sq, output , and quality I would recommend the IA lethal injection or flatlyne
    I will say this though quality is quality no matter where its made and SD subs are a quality product

I am willing to spend up to $400 per sub.
    First of all nearly everything in the big subwoofer department is made in China. Emminence and Credence still build a lot of woofers in USA, but I'd suspect they use imported parts as well. Even the "made in USA" subs almost all buy the motors (or their parts) from China. Better companies use American softparts, and many assemble parts here.

    If you're willing to pay more for ASSEMBLED in USA buy Z or Nightshade.

    Implying either don't use some Chinese parts?

    I wouldn't be surprised if those used some Chinese parts either.

    This is the key here. America's over-regulating business and failure to tax imports (as all other countries do) has all but eliminated manufacturing as we once knew it. I don't know if someone could build a really big woofer all in USA if they had to.


    That all being said, Jacob told me this winter that he was planning on buying a magnetizer so that he could assemble (possible eventually machine?) his big motors in house.

    Even when TC was "American made" and magnetized their motors they bought all the steel and magnetic slugs from China.

    OP. Buy a **** Chinese sub for 200$ and spend the other 200$ going out to dinner a few times at a local family owned restaurant or pay a local cabinet shop to build your box if you want to support American small business.

    Re: American made subs?

    I am going to buy the Incriminator Lethal Injection, I will spend my money with a American company. Not a company that is charging the same but paying little labor in a country without labor laws and enviromental laws. It is all about profit, if Incriminator can build a sub of equal or better quality here in America for the same price as Sundown, obviously Sundown is making alot more profit, someone is greedy.

    Re: American made subs?

    Really???? Because I would rather spend my money on a company that is building there stuff here in the U.S. I dont care if they are made with Chinese parts and assembled here in the U.S.. At least I know a American citizen that probably has a family and is paying taxes and actually contributing to our economy is being employed and putting my subs together, not a 10 year old Chinaman that probably cant spell sub is putting together my $200 speaker. I also am a musician but guess what I play a American Strat, not a Mexican Strat, even though I can buy 3 Mexican Strats for the price of a American Strat and you cant really tell the difference in the two. I spend my money on American equipment if at all possible, matter of fact I will go out of my way to buy American! And people wonder why our economy is failing. Buy American!!!! Support America, not China!!!

    Amps are a different story, you dont have a choice like you do with subs. When giving a choice I will buy American.
