As far as I can tell the owner of this shop is pretty good at hunting down quality sound that is less popular than some "big box" brands but have much more bang for your buck. He has several car audio speakers that I had never heard of that sound really great, and with research it turns out that a lot of other people online think so too.


And what might those be?? I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my car.

The sub brands I was thinking of were image dynamics and Treo.

For door panel speakers I was thinkinh of Hertz, MBQuart, and Treo.

I purchased the Hertz and Treo speakers (treo for the rear deck b/c they were cheaper) and the Image dynamics sub. I never heard the mbquart door panel speakers or the Treo subs but he had a lot of good things to say about them (and reviews were postive as well.)

I am not sure if any of these brands are actaully better than say a 3-way pioneer door panel speaker because I never did any A/B comparison... but I can say that I am pretty happy with the sound of the hertz speakers in particular.

I run MBQuart in my Passat. They are the 'Q' series, so I can't speak for the lower priced line, but these babies are amazing. Just a few weeks ago I was driving a buddy of mine to the Colts game and we were listening to a song (it escapes me which one exactly) and all of a sudden he goes, "oh THAT'S what he says right there! I never knew what he was saying in that part of the song, it's crazy how much better I can hear the lyrics through these speakers".

I think I've said it before that if MBQuart had home speakers I probably would never know that Axiom even existed, because I certainly would have bought MBQuart home speakers without thinking twice if they had carried them. Oh well, I'm not mad. ;\)
