  1. Anyone else got some names of american designed and/or made amp companies?
  2. whoops, ill fix that asap. thanks guys! Changed it to just single answer. I appreciate all the input on this! Now, of all the companies out there in the enthusiast scene (american made or not), what draws you to a specific company over another? For me I've always felt that if the product isn't vastly overrated/lying about output, customer service is #1 on my list.
  3. Hey guys! I'm currently taking a business class as I work on my EE degree (hoping to start up an amp business later on), and I have to do some market research. I'm hoping you all here can chime in with some knowledge on the industry. How many american designers/manufacturers of car audio amplifiers are still around? I know of Zed, D'amore, Mmats (rockford I think as well) and a few others, but I'm curious as to how many are out there. Do most companies source their manufacturing overseas with their own american designs? Are there folks still designing and manufacturing here in the US? As for the consumers, do most of you on this board (or folks you know) try to buy American whenever possible? Is it even an important factor in your purchases? Does the country of origin even sway your purchases? I was hoping this could be an open discussion on the topic. Also, if you'd like (it'd be a huge help with the class) I made a 10 question yes/no survey on the topic. It's really quick to finish. You don't have to take it if you don't want, but TIA if you do! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8PBWZPG Thanks for your guys input!
  4. Gotta go with a classic first. Lots of folks dont like Dimmu but I do. This one's pretty fun to listen to, especially when you've got a real big substage. Been a huge JFAC fan since highschool, and sun eater was an amazing album. Probably some of their best work thus far. also bdm is the shit also this
  5. So I just got into Bass fishing recently, and I love it. I live about 10 minutes from a reservoir out here in Socal (lake perris) and try to go as much as possible. I was curious as to whether or not there were any other Bass fishing guys on the boards, and what they throw in the different seasons.
  6. Here a recap video I put together for a show we had last weekend. Had a nice turnout, and was hot as fuck. Either way it was a good show! If you guys like my videos, check out my channel for more stuff like it.
  7. Here's another video I put together for last weekends meetup in San Diego. No effects or crazy edits, just a nice short little compilation. Hope you guys enjoy! Check out my channel for lots of other videos like this.

    Cascade Designs?

    Just bought a re-coned Cascade Designs Omega 15 off a friend, was wondering if any folks that have been in the game for a while remember anything about the company. I know they disappeared a good while back, but what exactly happened to them? How were their products? I can't seem to find too much on em through google. This woofer looks pretty beefy even by today's standards, so I'm kinda curious about the company.
  9. gorgeous install! I love the mechman intro as well.

    T shaped truck box?

    Bump. Any other box builders have any suggestions/objections about this?
  11. gimme a sec EDIT: just asked the sales director, waiting for him to get back to me. BUT iirc there isn't a difference, but I'll wait for him to let me know.

    T shaped truck box?

    I see what you're saying, thanks. That does make sense. Hopefully someone who has experience with this type of box design can chime in!

    T shaped truck box?

    I'm not too concerned about stuff getting dropped into the port, but I never really thought about the port orientation in regards to the sub mounting plane. Does this make a big difference?

    T shaped truck box?

    Probably some lower end CT Sounds 12's, something that would fit in a sub ~6 inch mounting depth. Was just wondering if the design would actually work well and not have loading issues.

    T shaped truck box?

    Always been curious about this kind of design. Box builders, do you see any issues arising with a box designed like this? I don't know much about enclosure design. Would there be loading issues? I checked around the site and google as well, but didn't come up with much to reference. Thanks! EDIT: It would be a combination of a behind the seat box and a center console box, for single cab trucks.
