Just subscribed to CACO looking forward to browsing the forums and pick up some nice audio equipment. I would say I know more than the average car audio enthusiast. Fav brands are definitely Rockford fosgate eventhough some say company is over expensive. Many argue that it is not worth it when you can buy an amp or sub rated twice as many watts for the same price. They have quality and that's what I look for im not going to buy anything cheap. New t1 and t2 subs are like nothing around. I'm a die hard RF fan! Love Sundown audio mainly for their amps although the new v2 nightshade looks awesome! Love Fi car audio. Had a 15 BTL and loved it shook the car and cars 20 feet away. New BTL's just came out as well looking to pick up a pair of 15's. Always wanted an Orion hcca 15 and will someday have. Have heard there will be new hcca's but not much info on them. I look for subwoofers first then aquire an amp for the subs. Latest project was a Fi BTL 15 dual 2 ohms in a 4.1 cu ft. box and a RF t1500-1bd amp rated at 1802 watts rms at one ohm. Pounded like crazy. Looking to pick up a pair of the new t1's also. Jus ordered some eclipse 10's because they were on sale sonic electronic trying to get rid of them. Rated at 700rms so hopefully some nice subs. Ain't mean to talk ya head off but just some info on me!!
