So? I don't have the time or luxury to spend all day around this stuff, and there's plenty to choose from that isn't as "bling". Playing with car stereo isn't something I get to do all day, every day anymore. I do not get exposure to the latest and greatest. I only stick to what I know works.Much of what you've said here has very little to do with the equipment and is just a general dislike of the SPL crowd.
But then there's your sig...
For my needs and tastes I see no benefit to buying 2000WRMS amps and subs with exaggerateds magnet and suspensions. Saying those traits and features have merit and are critical to SQ is facetious at best.
Oh and ya, the crowd. Yup. Got me there.
