Default New Components

So last week I booked ****** in for some new speakers... The ones that were installed Eclipse were ok but not great

So off to see my buddy Gary, The guy who completely rewired my GXP, He'* one of the best !

He is into JL stuff, I have never had JL stuff.

He sold me on the JL Evolution C3'* Powered by a JL G4500 AMP

http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_c...hp?page_id=311
(Well Below MSRP)
The Amp was one on the board
Again great deal.

Install was ok, took a little longer then I expected but I am completely Happy !!!

awesome! I dont like JL except a few of their amps but i dont have experience with their components.

My main complaint with them is their price, why do they think they can charge $700 for a sub when a $250 Fi or DD can put it to shame in SPL and SQ? But if you get em cheap then there just cannot be any complaints. LOL

They retail for 399.99 a set, I scooped them up for less then 300 a set

Plus for components they are hella good..

My only complaint now is I can't hear my 10'* hahaha
