Back in the day when I worked in Marriott sales , Bose was one of my clients. they built their own mountain to place their headquarters on top in Framingham Mass. It is so sick! They have all these different demo rooms set up and stuff.

About Bose - Directions to Bose
For car audio also. Polk Audio made the best subs I ever had in a car (had JBL, Kenwood, Rockford Fosgate, many other brands). Polks hit the cleanest and hardest. The best were a pair of 10s in a bandpass box...people thought I had 15s. They were incredible.

Bose is good for home, but they're nothing special for cars. They're often installed as "premium" or upgraded factory systems. They usually have a small factory amp that allows them to sound better than the factory system. So yeah, they're a lot better than the base stock system, but I'd never upgrade to one. My wife's car had a Monsoon system from the factory, it thumped for a stock radio, but I've since replaced it with a Blaupunkt HU and Pioneer speakers (they're cheap) and it sounds better.

My favorite brands for car audio:

Subs - Polk Audio, prefer 10s for clarity, still plenty of bass
HU - Blaupunkt or Alpine, Eclipse is good too
Speakers - Infinity (have in my car) or Pioneer if on budget
Amps - Have had Alpines and Kenwood that were good, but the best bang-for-the-buck is California Amps made by Profile. They're very underrated and are awesome performers, especially for subs. Had one of these back in the day, still my favorite of all I owned. Was bulletproof too, survived 2 car accidents (nether my fault) and still kicked.



Now they look more like this:



And of course, I always did my own installs.

Wow...I hope the baby and mother are both safe for you too. Even in an ordinary pregnancy, it's still a nonstop worry until the baby is actually born. The protective parenting instincts kick in before birth.

Please keep us updated, hopefully with positive news.

Actually, believe or not it was my idea. Her birthday is two days before Xmas, so she's already getting some gifts from me for that. We're looking to buy a house next fall, so we need to be upgrading/buying more furniture anyway. Honestly, I'm psyched to get a new TV stand. The one we're using now for a largest TV is too small. Looks silly in the living room. We're still renting, so I'm not going to wall-mount. Too much of a pain to fix when we move out.

Here's hoping you have a happy and healthy holiday season, and more importantly, and healthy little one this spring.

Are you kidding me? California Amps are cheapest on the market, got roll Orion when it comes to amps.

Re: What you want or getting for Xmas!!????!!!

What a great thread.

For me, I don't want anything for x-mas, except to have my whole family except for my mother together one last time before my brother ships off for Parris Island in January.

And I'm getting that, so I'm happy. I'd like to have my mom there too, but since the parents are divorced that ain't happening.

Hence the "bang-for-the-buck" comment. They perform very well for little $$.


Pyramids are the cheapest...and crap.

Ok we really should have had this discussion say 16 years ago but anyways from my experiences with them they never lasted longer then a month. And the feedback they sent through the speakers was so bad it made the PA system in my High School sound like IMAX theater.

In my area back in the day if you were rocking CA Amps folks were laughing at you. I rather roll stock then CA Amps any day.
