Just read the bad news. BA was a really awesome, higher end car audio company, that was drowned out by shitty quality car audio and todays younger people don't care much for having a 'banging' system in thier ride !
All good thing come to an end...

Most teens don't seem to care about cars, IME.

I sold Car Audio for a large electronics retailer in the '90's. Back then I'd usually just trade my pay cheques for gear, so before long the stereo was worth much more than my car. I actually bought my first decent home system just so I'd have a reference point to evaluate car systems.

This does suck, but thank goodness I got my hands on a Boston Acoustics G5 before this happened!

I run a car audio business in Waterloo (our 15th anniversary this weekend), still freshly remember getting my Boston 6.2 pros back in 1992! Cast baskets, poly cones, soft dome's.

Sad to see them go but take a look around and you'll find even better products today - Audison and Hertz come to mind :) ...
