So I walk into a car stereo shop today that I know has a great installer and asked them if they had any sub amps that put out around 1000 watts that's not made in China as I was trying to put together a system with non-china manufactured components. This place sells Arc Audio, Hertz, Kicker and maybe a couple others. The girl I was talking to looked at me like I was speaking Russian. There were 4 guys from the shop/install bay and one of them looked at me and said all amps are made in China now. I said well nah, Mmats, Tru Tech, Mosconi, Helix and some others aren't but I'd like to buy from y'all instead of online if possible. All 4 guys immediately went back into the install bay and the girl was still looking at me like I was from another planet. How are these shops sooo incredibly f'n clueless? I asked the same shop if they did any active tuning and they looked at me like I was from another galaxy even though I know the lead installer there does some very high end installs and tunes. It's like they want people to come there and say how much they have to spend and put whatever they want/can in for that price and want you to know zero about anything. Oh yeah I just remembered, they sell Audison too. Anyway, she said they had nothing not made in China so I left.
