the Xenos Hu was mated to teh Honda OE speakers which was damn crap. And I was sitting in teh rear (and hence 6x9 Xenos) , but didnt pump up volume to hear it properly as I just wanted to change those speakers asap.

Pre-concieved notion? I would not knock it till I heard it. You never know when someone sews a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

might be but they are all chinese product and all the low budget people who fall for B/W when compared to pioneer or sony speakers in that range....

also might be they must be sounding better than the sommoko or dhoom speaker.....but I dont think I would ever recommned them to anybody.......

never judge a book by the cover. china does make some nice audio (just ask any EU company - many soruce their manufacturing there).

many years ago I heard a plain vanilla Blaupunkt cassete player mated to a pair fo china-fake Nakamichi speakers that made some nice sounds.

i believe the talk is revolving around Xenos HU & not speakers.

and i too do not believe in comments made by the mere mention of the names. why shouldn't xenos sound decent ? i have not heard it. but it might perform exactly like a pioneer or a sony. why shouldn't it ? doesn't pioneer also manufacture in china ? doesn't intel manufacture in china ? who doesn't ?

china has many manufacturer ...some make nice product and some doesnot....it does not mean that all the chinese products are good.

these xenos are probally chinese product with a label of xenos on it .....the pricol would have arranged the speakers or the other products like hu from a chinese brand and label it xenos to promote it....

I think it is a only money oriented copy nothing to do with sound....

Thats why my commnets...if some one found the xenos sounding good please comment on it I will surely try to auditon it and post the comments on the same....

Agreed. Not all Chinese products are good but definitely not all are bad.

Unless or Untill someone has HEARD the Xenos HU we'll put this on hold.

Lets move on.
