Also, when i talked to adire...no plans on 4ohm extremis as of yet.

Yep, I loved the new Directed Audio componets that I saw at the SEMA show. Luckily I scored a set before they were actually due to be out. If you are going to buy soon, I'd wait atleast until mid March because that's usually when most makers are shipping new products. You have to be carefull though. Some makers just change the colors and badging on their stuff. So, you'd be paying more just for the new look.

Yep, sure do. Look and listen to plenty each year at the SEMA show. FYI I sell Earthquake, Orion, Phoenix Gold, Clarion Pro,MacIntosh, and everyone's fav AudioBahn amps and subs. Out of all of these, Directed seems to be the most consumer friendly. They seem to work the best in simple systems and have the best warranties. The thing I personally love is that I can program the amps with my laptop or Tech2 programmer for all parameters like gain or crossover points. Then when I am done, I can render the controls on the side of them useless so idiots don't screw with the controls. It's great when I think the buyer is a knob.

Also, if they are teamed up with a DEI alarm, I can connect them together so if the amp is stolen, it won't work unless it is taken to a Directed dealer.

Above all of that, they really rock. They are seriously under rated and have since the day they came out. I remember back in '96 when I first carried DEI stuff and thought they looked ugly and pretty weak. DEI's thoughts were to make good product that had great sound quality. They didn't care about wattages or SPL. To this day, they've done that and also happened to make SPL worthy products too. Also, they've finally made some nice looking product too.

Seriously though, why does it seem you all flame me more that those touting AudioBahn shit? Remember, we are open to state are ideas and shouldn't be flamed for it.

Re: Opinions On New System

Because your a dealer who's been in the industry. Your not some NOOB who doesn't know any better and just goes for the bling. Hell PG and McIntosh (learn to spell the produscts you sell) are leaps and bounds beyond DEI. DEI is just a little bit better then all the other mainstream shit. Orion is good and make some damn solid amps, but their subs are made very cheap overseas.

Re: Opinions On New System

Instead of just WHORING out the product you sell...maybe suggest what's the best for the situation! (Even if it happens to be something you don't sell!) peace

Re: Opinions On New System

Guys, I do suggest what I feel is the best for the money I know most of you are talking about. Yeah, if you want to blow $20k on a system, then you'll hear me talking about big money stuff from McIntosh and the others. Unfortunately, we never get into those discussions. Why? Because those people that can afford those systems don't come on here for questions. Quite frankly you and I would shit if it were my customers. Reason is that most are from professional sports teams. When I get a call (usually from their manager) they just tell me to do it. Rarely do they ask for a certain brand.

Now you guys understand where I come from? I didn't mean to push DEI all the way but if you look at it, all you guys usually do is tout the same brand or 2. It all doesn't matter though. We all have played with systems in our own way and have made up our minds as to what is good or bad. No one is really right or wrong, well except for those Audiobahn people!!!
