Your Mantis amp has one channel and cost you $1000? My brother's Jensen has 2 channels and cost 200 bucks man!! (an actual conversation with a guy outside the stereo shop about my MMATS D300HC circa de 1999) :-)

I just want to say I had a really good time reading this thread .. its been fun. The only comment I had was from my work colleague, who said (referring to my t-line);

"You do all that fancy s..t, and i''ll just Build sealed boxes."

I think that there's a bit more to horns, t-lines, iso, bandpass enclosures than being just "fancy s..t" .

What speakers are you comparing? Or do you mean low budget speakers vs big performance name brand ones?

Im just happy, as being brand new to Car audio, and having a very limited knowledge on it, I am still not as stupid as the comments that have been posted, and surprised myself to be able to understand why they are wrong lol Thank you Google

Lol, I'm not sure!

It's the guys who think they know a lot (but don't know Shiite from a Sunni) schooling the ones who know that they are clueless.

How's that?

I can usually have the "knowing" so confused they can't see straight pretty quick after using sq lingo on them. Then I pour salt in the wound I just created by letting them demo my system. After that I usually get hounded about what they should use. 10 out of 10 times they have a fine wine taste on a cheap beer budget so no way they'll be able to afford what they're wanting to do. This is the same guy I talked about shreading 3 subs in a ported box and then blaming the amp

Is this thread seriously entertaining? Some of you have nothing better to do that to ridicule those who don't have as much "knowledge" as you? How about this? Stfu and listen to the person who is asking the questions (even if they aren't delivered as questions) and help them understand your experience, values and opinions, and even theories about what they need to learn.

If they think you're full of shit, or that you're the idiot, then move on. Don't dwell on their ignorance or speak badly of them behind their backs. That's cowardice at its finest. I read a few posts of people praising others (professionals) for their openness to help others, show their systems, etc. Here's an idea. Practice what you preach. If you admire someone for their willingness to help, do the same. The worst that can happen is your audience will "boo" you. If so, find a new audience (or double check what you preach. )

I'll tell everyone here exactly what I have, and where I work. First off, I work at Best Buy as a Geeksquad Autotech trainee. Just started there a few weeks ago. So far, I love it. I love interacting with people. I love installing electronics into cars. I love helping people. I love working with my hands. It doesn't pay much, but that's OK. I've had jobs from being a pump jockey making $4/hr to working in rail yards making $45-50K /yr. One thing I've learned, it doesn't matter how much you get paid, if you hate your job and hate getting up every morning to go to work, the money really doesn't matter.

Right now, I have a '99 Olds Intrigue with the factory Bose system, a Sony head unit, a Powerbass ASA800.2 and two MTX 10" Thunder 8000 subs in a box tuned for 40Hz. I don't have aftermarket speakers. I don't have an aftermarket amp other than the Powerbass. I don't have a DSP, external "active" crossovers, a $400 component speakers, etc. I have what I want, I have it set up how I want it, and I have what I can afford. As mentioned, it's my car, my system and my money. I like it and that's all that matters.

Thanks for starting this thread, though. It definitely helps me understand how I'll be judged and what responses to expect based on what questions I ask.

BTW, This isn't addressed to everyone who posted here. Only a select few. Those of you who become offended by what I wrote should be able to figure it out.

really? like really? This thread is just for a good laugh at the expense of other peoples ignorance that we all expierence on a daily basis , not intellegence.. well lack of intellegence. We can all relate to it so why not have a good laugh for a minute and move on. No one is judging you. Were talking about when people who dont know jack shit try to act like they do, not when people who dont know and admititly dont know. If you dont like it, move on to the next thread.

Threads can be informative, entertaining, mean spirited and anything in between. If you don't like it, don't comment. But don't for a second think you can get up on your soap box and talk down to us like we're children.

I read a few posts of people praising others (professionals) for their openness to help others, show their systems, etc. Here's an idea. Practice what you preach. If you admire someone for their willingness to help, do the same. The worst that can happen is your audience will "boo" you. If so, find a new audience (or double check what you preach. )

I'll tell everyone here exactly what I have, and where I work. First off, I work at Best Buy as a Geeksquad Autotech trainee. Just started there a few weeks ago. So far, I love it. I love interacting with people. I love installing electronics into cars. I love helping people. I love working with my hands. It doesn't pay much, but that's OK. I've had jobs from being a pump jockey making $4/hr to working in rail yards making $45-50K /yr. One thing I've learned, it doesn't matter how much you get paid, if you hate your job and hate getting up every morning to go to work, the money really doesn't matter.

Right now, I have a '99 Olds Intrigue with the factory Bose system, a Sony head unit, a Powerbass ASA800.2 and two MTX 10" Thunder 8000 subs in a box tuned for 40Hz. I don't have aftermarket speakers. I don't have an aftermarket amp other than the Powerbass. I don't have a DSP, external "active" crossovers, a $400 component speakers, etc. I have what I want, I have it set up how I want it, and I have what I can afford. As mentioned, it's my car, my system and my money. I like it and that's all that matters.

Thanks for starting this thread, though. It definitely helps me understand how I'll be judged and what responses to expect based on what questions I ask.

BTW, This isn't addressed to everyone who posted here. Only a select few. Those of you who become offended by what I wrote should be able to figure it out.
Seriously man, I think I can see your point, but you're looking at it from the wrong direction. The people here are super helpful and understanding. If you go into General audio Discussion right now, you'll see at least 2 or 3 threads started by beginner level guys who are just trying to add a couple subs in with their factory system and what not.

You'll notice that despite these guys not using the $400 components, using basic subwoofers, etc, the people here still help them out and try and assist them with their set up and what gear they have. If the people are on a budget, the members here are always willing to help them find the best possible equipment to use with their equipment. They don't belittle them, they don't make them feel bad, nothing like that. If they try repeatedly to help someone learn and improve their set up, and the person is obviously not listening, then you might notice people kind of give up.

When I started here, I had no idea what I was doing. I had a great basis of knowledge of stereos and electronics, but I didn't know anything about putting in a Car stereo. However, the people here listened to all of the weird set ups I planned. They never put me down, they never made me feel dumb, they informed me on what I could possibly do to create a better set up.

In the end it payed off quite well. I have gained a great deal of knowledge and have been able to reach and exceed my expectations thus far. At no point did I feel ridiculed or made fun of. The thing about me is I was willing to listen to what people told me, and I wanted to learn and improve my potential set up.

This thread is simply just kicking back and sharing some stories of people who are just ignorant and don't care to learn, but want to carry an attitude as if they know more then anyone. It has nothing to do with the peoples knowledge or lack their of. This site is to help people gain knowledge. It's about people attitudes. Just peoples poor attitudes.

Notice, no one in here is ridiculing someone for using entry level Rockford Fosgate component speakers instead of $400 boutique components. However, there is a post mentioning someone who filled their trunk lid with BB's to create more trunk rattle for MOAR BASS. Do you see the difference here?
