Is Terry Still at Paradyme? I wouldn't mind another set of ears in the truck to critique where I am with it.

Designing, building, and shipping boxes. Yahoo IM - kingsuv00If the listening level is too loud, please inform the driver, so he can promptly pull over, and let you out.

not many cars can get me to pluggin my ears but this one.......damn. I mean the first minute is ok but that thing just really starts digging deeper and deeper in your earhole till you cant stand it no more. Seems like it does it with relative ease....16 12's on 8 amps.........gotta love it. :)

Wow that was very helpful!!

Some people could care less about who the genius is that is making the product... They just want to get it cheap and say "derrrr, look at teh pretty lights in muh dash!"

Because audio is a lifestyle not a hobby.

Things that I am allergic too....

Too long. Didn't read.

Lol, jk. That was actually really interesting. I've always been more interested in the SQ side of things instead of SPL, so this article is super helpful. Is this stickied? I wanna come back and read this a few times.

wtf is lolcats?

I'd def get a fat hooker if i had to resort to that kinda thing. I feel like they'd be grateful and work harder. Also its more bang for my buck, more real estate for my dollar if you catch my drift. its like the Costco of streetwalkers.

I was hoping for 150 :(.

I was hoping she would let me put it in her butt

This could be helpfull for complete noobs, but.....
This aint the bible!

For example:
Step 6 and 7
Sometimes it is even recommended to use different polarity!


English isn't my own language so it is hard for me to explain.
But please believe me; There is much more @ SQ ;)

Thank you captain obvious. I hoped we all knew this wasn't the Holy Grail of SQ. It's just info that some of us never knew and may never had known if Meade hadn't posted it.

First time Ive read this... To anyone thats never heard an SQ car that does a 40, or 37 in the RTA, they sound like complete shit. Again, this is just my opinion.


That isn't the first time I have heard someone say this (although I didn't really hear you say it). What do you mean it sounds like shit? It was about 14 years ago I heard someone else say it and I didn't think to ask him what he meant.
