I am a happy customer from Bullet Lines. Excellent communications, quality products and even better value.

wish I had cans big enough for the 770's, but the 6.5's will be fine. wish I had seen the shop. would like to have heard them first, but oh well.
I was impressed with the salesman I spoke with on saturday. they called this am to confirm ship address. seemed to be a real organized shop.
probably going to add 2 good 12's as well over the winter. one under the dash and one in the compartment where the batteries/amps go.
only have 2 batteries but that should be plenty..
only question I have unanswered are power caps. think the deep cycle marine batteries make it a non-issue, but I had them in all my cars prior..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

he seemed very knowledgable..
I was going to go with the polks, but bought the skylon r125ib's for the interior. we'll see how they sound..
db651's are on sale at crutchfield right now for a steal.. might want to pick them up while they still have them..
shopping for amps next. too many to choose from, and I have always kind of had a thing for old school 80's-90's amps. MUCH better than some of the crap for sale now...
I'd love to run a set of orion hcca 425's. system would rock wallet says no though..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

I am surprised that the Polk DB651's would be an upgrade to the stock kickers. I have 4 of those Polks on my tower and am running them with more then enough power and they sound ok, but not amazing or anything.
I ordered 4 of the Krypt HLCD from Bulletlines so I will do a full review on them once I get them and have a chance3 to test them out.

would be nice to see some head to head reviews of the few vendors that sell hlcd speakers. some independent magazine testing, but I doubt it will ever happen. there seems to be too much of a price disparity between the bottom and top brands and I'm guessing those at the top would not want the results published

da man, that old fosgate stuff was the bomb. used to dream of a basic system using 2 punch 45's. owned an old power100, but haven't ever seen one since. it was the baby to the power 300/1000. ran 25x4 and it pounded for what it was. I remember a company called waveguide that made a hlcd for under the dash for a few years. some guy had a car with those and the rest alpine system that cleaned up the show circuit for a few years. never caught on in the car world, thinking due to size and cost, but interesting that they(hlcd's) ended up being the premium tower speaker.'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

I remember the wave guides. I never heard them but they got great reviews.
I ended up ordering 4 of the HLCD's from Ken at Bullet Lines for a smoking deal. I was just going to order the drivers but ended up ordering can's too so I could sell my Polks as complete tower speakers and hopefully almost break even. I am going on the word of Ken and some internet reviews, so I hope these speakers are as good as they look.
I have an old but very Powerful Pioneer Premier Amp that will feed the speakers with about 120-150 watts of RMS power so they should be well matched. I can't wait to hear them and hopefully the out perform the Polks. I also blew three of the Polks this year (perhaps from overpowering) but they were replaced on waranty so we went a lot of the summer without music and I don't want that to happen again.
