what does this mean?

you dont like them?
what is it about them you dont like?

is it the pandemic that the car audio forums have just about fallen off with good stimulating content and discussions?

why the flippant cornball responses lately....and its not just you slo_ride, but i see lot of it going on here and other forums pages.

Its a fine amp however car audio like most electronics has vastly improved over the last 30 years. My wife's grandmother still uses a rca console television that works perfectly, would I? Nope...

so I have never heard one personally, but i would Like to. I think it is really cool. I dont care about production year i care about does it do a good job. Maybe ignorance is bliss but I have been happily pushing my old alpine mrv-1505 hard everyday for 20 years and I am proud af. i got it 20 years ago off eBay and it looked old then!

My ida-x305s is Like 15 years old at this point but it still gives me a little chub sometimes.

shop radio? I think something like that would go best in a classic ferarri or something, with a dsp and plenty of power:cool:

I've haven't been on here in two months. It won't take you long to figure out that IDGAF what you or anyone one else thinks. I post what I want when I want.
