i wouldnt buy stuff off ebay. your basing your purchase off just a picture. stay away from stuff like bazooka, or anything from circuit city or best buy. you could get a good head unit maybe. i personally like JL audio, MA audio. But thats just because thats what i have. It all depends on what kind of sound you like, everyones is different.

before you list the names of brands that other people have said are crap, you should listen to them YOURSELF. You'll find that for the price, and time, half of those brands aren't bad at all. Most people aren't looking for an spl or competition system. They just want their system to sound a lot better. Listen to all those systems (brands that you mentioned) and compare price to needs before you go off talking s*hit.

A lot of people are looking for decent entry level equipment.

Power Acoustik has a LOT of low priced equipment that is worth a look. Lanzar Vibe is widely respected, especially considering the price. The 1800D and the old 1200D used to be, and by many are still considered the best power/dollar sub amp you can get, and coincidentally - the hard to find Pyramid 2400D uses the same board. Not to say that Pyramid rocks, because clearly they sell a lot of useless junk, but a lot of companies that are considered crap have a sleeper here and there.

Sony's not as bad as people want to think either, but to each his own.

If we're talking specifically about speakers and subs it's a little harder to argue. 95% of the time the higher priced stuff is better, but not everyone has an unlimited budget and there's a lot of stuff out there that's pretty good and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

OK,now you have to draw the line somewhere,what are you comparing to that makes Concept JUNK???Concept makes awesome equipment and so does Audiobahn,as for Audiobahn,entry level means just that,entry level,not comp.I just have to know though why you are calling Concept junk.

WOW. thats a lot of shit you hate first of all have U actually heard all these brands or installed them. Befor you talked shit about them you should try them. I think you're a fucking idiot for talking shit about all these brands. Now I dont know how all of them sound but Power Acustic come on. There not the best but There amps fing rail and there subs hit very hard you're a dumass to say all those brands suck. For some cases there perfect. So dont go talking shit about a bunch of stuff you dont know about. ps I do agree that some of those brands suck dick and should never be bought but not all of them.
