To all SMD Members:
I'd like to dedicate this newsletter to SMD Partners for their incredible support of our community. I see lots of questions in the forum everyday asking, "What brand should I go with?" Guess what - I'll put our Partner's products up against any!
As an SMD Member, you truly get the best of both worlds - you have access to the knowledge and you have access to the products. Read up - I'm gonna' give you the low down . . .
Second Skin is our oldest SMD Partner. It began with wild man Ant and some of the crazy stuff he was known to cook up. Now that Ken & Sue own it, Second Skin has grown like mad. EVERY time I ask Ken & Sue for a deal for you, they DELIVER. I use Second Skin in all my rides - not because of the killer deals, but because the product is the best of the best - I won't use anything else. Why waste your time trying some other stuff when you can have the best and get it at a DEAL?
Jacob has been with us since 2009. He's made a name for himself for the pre-order DEAL. A LOT of SMD Members run Sundown Amps & Subs and for good reason - you get a lot of bang for the buck! As if that wasn't enough, Jacob has built a killer reputation for customer service. Right now, he's running two pre-order deals AND a sale on his E-10, E-12, and E-15 woofers - just hit his Forum and check it out!
XS Power has also been with us since 2009. Ya'll know I run 'em in my rides. Nothing I've tried works as well as XS Power and I ask a lot from mine! As if their line wasn't complete enough, they're introducing some all new stuff at SEMA. CLICK to get the skinny on the:
- D4700 (Group 47 with 2,900 MAX Amps!)
- D4800 (Group 48 with 3,000 MAX Amps!)
- D4900 (Group 49 with 4,000 MAX Amps!)
- D7500 . . . the biggest, baddest, most powerful AGM battery available! [See it at SEMA!]
Bryan has been with us since 2009 as well. Bryan started Mobile Solutions with a rolling case and a few tricks up his sleeve. He has grown it into the industry's most recognized training company. In addition, he offers he largest selection of tools for the professional, many of which he created - tools that you guys have access to! If you're still rockin' the jig-saw and cuttin' semi circular holes than you absolutely need to check them out. All the best shops in the biz' shop with Bryan - and you can too!
I've been partial to Rockford Fosgate gear since I was bumpin' that M.C.A.D.E. back in the day. I still run it all these years later. Now, the stuff I ran back in the day is considered "old school" - that makes me wonder what a T2500-1bdCP will be considered twenty years from now! I've put my Rockford Fosgate amps through hell and back and they deliver! I also love the 3SIXTY.3 in my Lex' - CLICK to check out a complete review of the 3SIXTY.3. Now where's my M.C.A.D.E. CD . . . ?
Rusty and team have been with us a long time! Their Level ANYTHING woofers have gained notoriety as being some of the best available. There for a while, it seemed like every SOTM winner had some DC in their ride. The DC Audio forum is the most heavily trafficked of all the partner forums and you can never tell what Rusty might post. If you hadn't seen the video of Justin Bieber wrecking Rusty's van, then you need to check it out HERE.
I now run Mechman in both my Tahoe and the Lex' . . . and you guys know how hard I am on alternators. Yeah . . . I've never had a single alternator failure since switching to Mechman! Matt has his crap together and delivers the goods! Compare that to the countless threads I've seen in the forums about some other companies . . . they might offer a better price, but it would seem you're on your own if you have problems. Check out the guts of my all new 6-phase Lex' alternator HERE and the vid of it installed HERE! As far as I know, Matt is the first to tackle this for an IS-F!
Man these guys have it goin' on . . . they put some kind of deal up in their forum every day and you never can tell when I'm gonna' jump in there and give someone one of whatever they're running on sale. You just gotta' stay tuned in that's all. Currently, they're running an XS Power Sweepstakes and have put up $2,000 in prizes! How cool is that? CLICK to learn all about it. This month alone, they've run up to 25% off on several popular brands - I'd recommend subscribing to their newsletter if you don't already - you can do that right HERE.
Skar Audio is a relative newcomer to SMD and Kevin has made big waves in a very short time. There's a bunch of guys out there running BIG Skar Audio systems. You gotta check out this vid of what (18) Skar VVX12s in 4th order can do with 9,000 Watts RMS - checkit HERE. It looks like Kevin has achieved his goal of delivering great performing gear at affordable prices - we're glad to have 'em!
