My Recent visit to Crutchfield

Recommended Posts

Made my yearly visit to Crutchfield and while they were very nice

my sales guy made not so nice remarks about Klipsch.

You know the usual, Harsh, Piercing, and La Scala are Old School--if you like that type of sound.

So I listened to a couple of speakers including Martin Logan

and another brand that cost $1000 each that the sales guy was really bragging on.

They also didn't care for my "County-ish Type of Music".

Idiots.

I hated the Martin Logans and the Fancy Brand he was bragging on Sucked and I told him so.

As you know I have El Cheapo Klipsch that have been Modded.

They wish their speakers sounded as good as mine.

So when I do add speakers to our system, I'll be buying a speaker

I know sound Great--Klipsch.

Crutchfield is, I believe, an authorized Klipsch dealer.  They should know that revealing efficient Klipsch speakers will sound bad when poorly powered.  Which car audio head were they using?

If they are using one of those super distribution switched amp thingy's which many of the people don't know how to operate anything can happen. In my case nothing came out of the speakers no matter how many switches they pushed. I bought the Klipsch Sub anyway.

It was Funny--they had the ML hooked up to a ONKYO AVR

ML are supposed to be listened to sitting down because of the dispersion factor.

NO chairs provided for listening.

I guess it wasn't a serious audition at Crutchfield.

When they played the 2000 dollar speakers they set them up in a listening room

and sat me 3 feet away from them play through a McIntosh Amp.

Them the guy stood there looking at us intently.

Not a good experience.

he/they were hustling the other speakers.... maybe a better commission/mark up.

... then maybe, just maybe, he hasn't taken the time to appreciate what we know.
