because you listen to it day to day, not for 5 seconds after you do an installation..WTF is up with the attitude? Gotta love forums for people asking questions then complaining about the responses.
This is a great response.
Why is owning a product the only way to verify it's build quality and competence of design?
since starting this thread, i have had the opportunity to listen to several audiopipe products, not just speakers, in several well built systems down here in south FL, and i can honestly say, that the negative comments in this thread are ALL unwarranted. is the build quality the greatest? its adequate enough, considering how often audiophiles change out equipment. do they look good? actually, some of their newer 2010 stuff is QUITE attractive.
the most important question: do they sound good? and the answer is YES, they do. they have competant power handling capabilities without distortion, and the frequency response is very good. they won't make a shitty amp or head unit sound better, but they do sound good when coupled with good equipment, the same as ANY other speaker.
that being said, there are too many haters out there who just spew bad shit about a company for no good reason.
and to the guy who says he installs them on a day to day basis but thinks they are a garbage product, well, i call bullshit. Are you even an installer? what kind of systems are you installing them on? why don't you provide us a point of reference to back all of your blanket statements of hatred towards the product line? tell us the type of equipment these installs have in them. if you REALLY are installing alot of them, then perhaps they aren't nearly as bad as you claim.
anyways, i have a discerning ear, and now that i have had the opportunity to hear them in action, i have to say that the few random opinions from non-users of this speaker line are falling on def ears.
Audiopipe = pretty good sound. are they top of the line? don't know, i didn't have a top of the line speaker to do an A/B comparison... but they sounded pretty damned good to me, even playing classical and jazz.
