Default What were you running before c.a. forums, and how informed were you?

like honestly, i know about 4 or 5 years ago i would i have never known who the upcoming under-dog brands were. I barely knew what i should have been running.

What were you running before online forums?

I believe(and i was 15 also lol) i was running some 8 ga. wire to a jensen 200 watt amp, and a mtx 5500 in a prefab walmart box.

my ht in my room consisted of 2 mtx 8" road thunders. hooked up to a p.o.s. amp i picked up on a power inverter.

how out of the loop were you before you started checking the forums? or were you already in sync with anything that was outside the flea market?

I never really ran anything terrible, however, i left all my installs pretty ghetto.

My first real set up was a California profile 800sx on a kicker cvr 15 sealed and a kicker kx150.2 on a set of powerbass components. Nothing impressive by any means however nothing terrible.

I have stepped up a lot with my latest install
DLS A2 A4 and A6 amps
2 12" IDMax subs
Image dyanamics xs comp set ran active
and actually have the electical to back it up

Two Ultra Linear 10'' Subs in a prefab ebay sealed box that was WAY too small for them, powered originally by the factory subwoofer amp in my mountaineer, then by a Ultra linear "1000 Watt" monoblock. factory frontstage. I thought I was the baddest kid in highschool. Stepped it up my senior year after getting into CACO. Ran a single DB Drive WD 15'' in about 3.5 cubes tuned to 35hz off a Massive 1500.1. That got stupid loud for what it was.

i got lucky and got a job at circuit city selling car audio (go figure, they hire a kid who doesnt know a damn thing about audio, to sell it)

the discounts were absolutely incredible. i paid like $330 for a 12 inch solo x..

so i always ran good equipment, i just didnt really know what i was doing.

This was 1995-1996
