Raja, reliability and service might be suspect. I have not heard it so wont comment on the sound quality though.

I have seen the advts in the Mags. The add goes something like "We are different".

God knows how different is this brand.......seems to be some local brand

someone need to check out DAPIC and Carbon products. There are people who are tight on budget and who still buy these.

Guys.. i had used DAPIC speakers and tweeters long back in my sound box for my room..which was run by those local amps.........they are still used in local busses out here.....QUALITY is what thts missing in these speakers and music systems....all of them are look alikes of a premier brand...For a car...its a definite NO NO....even if its given at a very low price..

Wow, that is great! Now you really have to be my idol. (I assume your father-in-law picks the tab!)

I think speedzak meant it from the point of what you think of your mother-in-law, and not the other way around. And does it really impress ma-in-laws if her husband came home reeking and late, and realizes that her son-in-law just did the same with her daughter? Maybe I'll know when I'm married. God bless me.

When I was 16, I thought getting into car audio would help me bowl some maidens over! And guess what.... I'm still thinking! Only with a stronger forearm now.

B&T for the sake of avoiding the mental picture that conjures, I am going to assume you have a stronger forearm due to tightening screws into MDF...

That's a nice way to think! But I think the other way.

Maybe he had some amps which where too hot (audiobahns get very hot) that he had to open some valves to release the heat!
