Does anybody out there run a kenwood sub or amp?
im thinking of buying a Kenwood KFC-W3514DVC sub, and wanted to know if Kenwood has a good name around subs or not.

I think you'll find they have an "average" name. They're certainly not considered the pinnacle of audio but they're not considered utter rubbish either.

Yeah i agree with that, except there are sometimes where things will be clear cut crap. Obviously a $15 set of fake name rip off splits is going to sound nowhere near as good as a $500 set of decent splits and if you think they do then your probably an extremely rare individual. Sure within a certain range of equipment where there's slight variations someone might find one thing sounds better than another, but then you have extremes where they'll be a strong general concensus that one thing sound better than the other. The whole thing is subjective, but if 99 people tell me speaker A sounds better than speaker B and one person tells me speaker B sounds better than speaker A i'd probably choose speaker A.

Yeah i get where your coming from garfa. It's just a see it said alot and worry that some won't be able to decipher that there's still a clear difference between good and shite that your probably gunna hear no matter who you are and what your preference is. Anyways, happy speaker hunting.
