This is the infamous Good, Bad, and Ugly list.

These are some generalized groupings and very subjective. We've simply stated our
experiences with the products whether they are direct installs, personal property or
extensive research. You should always physically audition a product before purchase
because you are the one who will determine whether or not an item "sounds good" or
not.
The overall groupings are based on performance, reliability, and build quality,
without regard to price.

This topic, while being controversial, is simply a generalized guide meant for
beginners in the hobby. Many brands specialize in certain items, ie. better
amplifiers than speakers, better mids than subs, etc... Also almost all
manufacturers offer entry level products as well as high performance lines. Good
luck with your decisions.

We've broken this section into 4 catagories:
1: Bad (avoid)
2: Questionable (mixed reviews, disputed, unsure, or depends on the item)
3: Good (just about always worth consideration)
4: Highly Recommended (considered audiophile grade)
