well, I am not hunting anybody down... I have seen your name linked to pimp my ride side show but I guess we all have to pay our bills somehow. Wink And to do is my own joke to myself, like in going down the list as time allows, I am hoping to eventually encounter someone low key, with good taste and preference for sound quality, even if customers demand otherwise. I have also saved up some monies for lottery ticket should this even happen, I figured may as well take advantage of incredible luck... Wink Laughing

"Installers were judged by manufacturers and independent rep
firms across the country for their dedication to premium quality and service to their field."


So basically the clueless were evaluating what? tidy connections, glossy glass work and sales figures? Stuff like this sucks balls... What the fuck that field really is? Ability to replace speakers, install alarms? K... Rolling Eyes Even if good people are on this list, this would be by accident, truly pathetic...

I did not forget... Pretty busy lately and just plain tired but the time will come again soon until this list becomes fully functional as much as possible since some of these aces are either pulling their stuff off or do not advertise in the first place... I am very persistent though Twisted Evil

I remember seeing some topics in other forums posted by installers asking members to sign in and vote for them. I'm sure there are a number a good installers there (Jeff Smith for one), but for the most part it looked like a popularity/spam contest.
