Default Your view on "brand loyalty"

So i was talking with a guy the other day that runs JL throughout his car, and i'm looking for some stuff for my front stage, and am kind of considering AQ 4x90 just because i have an AQ amp and its great, but what is your guys thoughts on brand loyalty?

Would you spend more money on a product because its from a brand you know/trust? Or do you prefer to go with whats cheapest/ good deal?

depends what you mean.

I like my amps to match so if Im looking for amps I make sure I can get a matching 2/4ch for the mono block. but when it comes down to "I run Image Dynamic components so I have to run ID amps and subs" I dont care as much.

And ask your friend if he runs a JL head unit lol.

Well I guess I would say it's whatever I find for the best deal that fits my application. I'm not made of money so...

Not that I couldn't afford it if I absolutely had to have it but I don't run crap stuff either

I run Sundown amps exclusively but everything else is what fits my application/budget.

Like i said, whatever works....But i do get the point OP, it looks clean, but at the same time looks like one of those setups where the person dosn't know much about audioz, and goes with a popular hyped brand and likes to get it matching because he thinks it will work best. There are brands with killer subs but either crappy amps, or there is a better choice for an amp out there.
