If your tin foil hat is causing you difficulties when you read, perhaps consider adjusting it.

You don't have to be a DICK about it. And learn how to spell referred.

If nothing else, the board shown through the plexiglass in OP looks very nicely arranged and thought out.
Maybe the gold sub looks cheap to some but I can't help but think how sexy it looks...could do without the crown but I just love how the back of the sub looks.

I just can't believe Pyramid is still around.

The old "Profile by California" amps were awesome. I believe these had the same internals as Pyramid amps, but came in a white case with a red led bar in the middle. They looked cool, remained cool under pressure, and are still one of my favorite amps

Back in the day Pyle actually had some decent gear. Today, not so much.
However, there is one piece of Pyle equipment that caught my eye a few years ago. It's my guilty obsession. I think it's discontinued now but, it has tiffany-style RCA's, 100 amps of fusing and well, I'll just let the photos speak for themselves....

Power acoustik had some great Amps over the years:

The sapphire series
The majestic series
The 1ohm high current series
The Farenheit series

I haven't tried the current lineup, but thy really did have some great stuff over the years

What's funny is people bag on some low tier brand from back then, but also overlook at what was fairly average from past higher brands as well. It's so easy to toot your nose up when you are living in the current world of electronics where big power is cheap and advanced drivers are widely available, but half of these same people wouldn't be able to put together a system worth a squat if they existed back then without the knowledge recently acquired from being on here and a few other places. Now all of a sudden... everything under a certain price or whatever is crap.

And don't forget that most every manufacturer, even back in the day, offered so-called entry level gear. They'd have been crazy not to!
But, some of the name brand entry level gear was pretty weak too. It isn't just something that has popped up recently.
The elephant in the room is that just because something was made in the USA doesn't automatically mean it is/was better.

At times I wonder what things would have been like back in the 90's & so forth had DSP been widely available & affordable. Heck, even deadening materials & techniques. It's amazing of the differences and improvements made when the listening environment is treated properly enabling you to maximize modest gear. I'm not talking about compensating for crap drivers and amps that are no better than a headunit, so don't go there. Just pointing out that we worked with what was available and respected it even on the lower levels more than most do now.
