Example: I listen to rap, so I am assuming you may recommend me a set of speakers W/ a good mid? When I say "good," I mean "beefy." -You catch my drift. Well, how do you I don't enjoy the robust natural presence of paper cones. I also listen to Shania Twain & Mariah. Now what are you going to recommend me?
Here, this may help: "New To 2012! The All New Universal Cone Composition specifically engineered to kick asss from Elton John to Eazy E!
Thanks for playing... this is EXACTLY why PROFESSIONALS ask what types of music customers listen too. That fact Kool-Moe-D to Shania Twain listener is going to get a different BRAND of speaker when coupled with several other factors... Like Deck power vs amp power? CD, Sat radio, or iPod/Mp3?
You are taking your own "knowledge" as a SQ guy and forgetting that others are not as advanced. I am 210% CD/CDr listener with Sat radio on the commute. I don't like the sound of MP3/iPod.. just me. I wouldn't recommend 90% of what's out there for the way I listen because if you haven't torn up your ears listening to crap, you'll hear every lil defect in MP3 conversion/compression. I've spent 30+ of my 44 years on this planet protecting my hearing. I value music that much... But I am not selling or recommending to ME.. I am recommending to someone 1/2 the country away.
His/Her ears... Simple process... Take His/Her music in the FORMAT they listen to and GO LISTEN TO SPEAKERS... Don't have to buy them at Car Toys, Best buy, wherever.. but they have to go listen.
Boston Acoustics sound differently than MB Quart vs Rainbow, Kenwood or Alpine or JL Audio. Hundreds of companies out there and the only way to please his/her own ear is the LISTEN...
