    I have to wonder how the 10's or 7's would compare to the A400's if you did a full treatment to them. (RD0 tweeters, crossover rebuild, dynamat, etc)

    I just have to laugh at my oldest step-son. He moved back to NC just after Christmas and has been razzing us about the cold and snow here in Wisconsin. Looks like it finally caught up to him.
