Go into best buy and try to talk to the customers pressing the little red buttons testing the subwoofers. Its a sad case. This kid asked me for my opinion so I sat for 10 minutes explaining to him that the "Dual" brand 2 12" bandpass system they had for sale was probably the worst sub setup one could buy, just cause it looks cool with the plexiglass window doesnt make it good. Then I spent 15 minutes explaining that just because a Head Unit has a motorized faceplate does not make it good (Referring to the 159 dollar "Dual" XD7500) and as im making my purchase I see him walking out with both of the items. Let em make their choices but my true point with this is, albeit farfetched from the original statement, Why is it that big chain stores such as best buy and circuit city refuse to carry quality car audio items (aside from a limited selection of decent head units)?
