    Raxx in Janesville, WI

    My bro-in-law went to Raxx to get a HU, amp, subs and wiring installed in his 2 door Blazer a little while back. The install was simple, 2 JL 13W1's in a sealed box off a TMA 500/1 and an Alpine headunit.

    We just took the system out because he sold the truck, and found some problems. Some of the wires on the HU adapter falling out. They also ran the power wire and rca's under the truck. The rca's were run down the side in wire loom, not damaged at all. But the power wire was run down the center, with wire loom, but it was touching the exhaust and melted straight through the jacket.

    I would not recommend you getting anything installed from this store.

    K so I bought a pair of Morel Tempo Coax 6's and they shorted me a crossover... I called and they had it in the next day.. Customer service is awesome and the new guy is pretty cool and really knows what he's doing, and is willing to work on prices of equip..

    It's under new ownership & has all new employees now. Very knowledgable & friendly guys in both Madison & Janesville. Both been in the industry for years. I'd give it a 2nd chance!

    Re: Raxx in Janesville, WI

    I've wondered where Raxx moved to for several years. I don't know about the current owner, but about 7 years ago it was owned by two extremely knowledgable audiophiles somewhere around Delafield, at 83 and 94. They were great. THey got pissed at me though because I didn't buy their JL Audio amps.
