ouch...

Maybe prolly sony or boss. At least those companies will make good on their warranties.

If i remember correctly, some boss stuff actually has a 6yr warranty...crazy aint it.

I'd probably pick the boss...there stuff used to be really good a few years back...

I had a boss amp for a while and it ran pretty cool...no complaints with it...

Sony, Pyle, or Boss in that order is what my choices would be. Believe it or not them Sony P5's can pound fairly hard in a ported box. Even though I hate to say this I'd go with the Sony's.

ive heard boss they sounded decent ive also heard super pro think they have low and high end of those anyway the ones i had were suprising personnally i think the super pros are one of pyramids best along with the super blue....the top line but i think the super pro i had was cleaner and louder....legacy subs ...their highest end is good but as for legacy thats all they make good definately not their amps biggest pieces of junk and their 6 x 9s were good top line...pyly used to be ok but not anymore from what i can tell.....sony explodes to me had nasty cone noise that seemed to be a factory problem but ive never heard them in an actual box in a car

i agree with pharoh, sony makes POS stuff right now, but they are one of the biggest electronic companies on the plannet, they are bound to get it right sooner or later, i just think if they ever released something decent, it would be hard for them to gain the respect of the car audio enthusists after all the years of $hit they have put out. To be dead honest if sony rated thier products properly and they told evryone for example that their 1200 watt amp only puts out about 500 (rated by the new 2006 goverment standard) people would give sony more credit. If people were only expecting 500 watts of performance, then i think sony's products would deliver people's expectations. At least for the mid ranged quality audio.

I can't believe I'm recommending a brand with this bad of quality, but my vote goes to Boss with Sony finishing second.

Sony has been producing crappy and/or so-so quality stuff since the 50s, nothing has changed or improved, they've just come out with new things that wow people. Their priority is to offer cheap stuff to the general public, many of which don't know any better, high end equipment is better left to professional audio corporations who are focused on benefitting the hobby instead of padding pockets. A true high end audio corporation focuses on a narrower product line and invests much of their profit back into R&D, Sony doesn't. Their car audio has actually degraded over the years, the older ES stuff was actually pretty nice.

I agree with the old ES stuff I had an old ES head unit and I loved it, it is still working in my brother in-law's car. I bought it the same day I got my PPI a600 in 96 so for a sony product that is a long time to be running.:-) I think it was the ES9000 or something like that, I think it has lasted so long bacause it had no internal amp it was pre-out only so the internal sony garbage amp couldnt fail on me lol!

yea i can see where you gues are coming from but still. Sont has theyr breakthroughs, i was just thinking that if they spent some more time in the car audio department( so much for their Xplode line ) and put some time into it, they would be pretty good again. I like sony, just not anything that has to do with a car, exept for my PS2 Slim Ed that is in behind my amp underneith my fiberglass bolted to my chassis which has a 650$ alarm on it for all those dinks that would like to steal my stuff again
