I think you are avoiding the issue. If the list is trash then how about you provide one.

So, you really expect guys to stop and make a list for you? A list that you said was for amplifiers that clearly showed HU's, speakers, subs, alternators, and subwoofers. You can't be serious.

I don t want anyone to provide a list for me. That s not what I asked. My original question was; has the list been updated?
Going by what the website said, it s an amp list. So it has speakers, subs, and what-ever included. I didn t make the list obviously. It was made in 2005. Breaking my balls over a copy and pasted list is over the top.

Bro, you said provide one. Read your shit before you post. Don't let your emotions take over.
My emotions are fine. When I said; make me a list, it was retorical. That was obviously missed...The impression I got was if the list is "trash" then either he has something on the bad list I provided, or he is so f*cking inteligent that he has his own opinions on what is good and what is bad. Everyone has opinions right? It would be interesting to know/see what he thought was good or bad, because that s why I came here. To get opinions from more knowledgable folks; yet your still breaking my balls.

But, you can't post a list and ask what is good or bad? The questions are usually more specific to a current or upcoming build. Which amp? Which sub? Which HU? Which DSP? Which sound deadener? Ported or sealed? Which components? Wire size? Alternator/batteries? Definitely, not a 15 year old list asking good or bad. Just a heads up.

So in other words I can only ask certain questions? Can you refer me to the list of questions that are acceptable? This is retarded. A simple question turns into this. Arrogance abounds.

What was your goal with your original post? You have Google and can look for an updated list on your own. The post was retarded, not everybody here.

People here don't have experience with 100 different brands. They study, ask questions, and have real life experiences with a number of brands. You said that list was for amps and it obviously wasn't. So, you lost credibility right away. People aren't here to do your homework, they are here for real life experience and opinions. This shit is free, nobody is paid.
