    Facts are claimed every day on the internet and on tv. I only said true, because he built the crossovers in my speakers and they are excellent mods.

    Trey's work on crossovers is extraordinary. It not only looks great, and it performs even better than it looks.

    He has now done three sets of crossovers for my speakers -- SDS SRS1.2s, SDA 1Cs, and Allison 6s -- and they continue to deliver better and better sound as they "age" gracefully.

    Last Friday, for example, as I was doing my physical therapy routine while listening to the 1Cs, the crossovers must have hit another milestone in the burn in process. "Gradually all of a sudden" they seemed to open up and blossom -- wider sound stage, deeper and tighter bass, clearer more distinct highs. This while listening to Andy Carlson's "Fiddlehead."

    I've now had this kind of experience with the SRSs and the 1Cs. We'll see what happens with the Allison 6s!

    Yeah, Trey is an artist, and he is also a fantastic technician.

    Amazing, what kind of wire did you use for the internal wiring harnesses?

    I use basic wiring, 16 awg, for the internal wiring harness, I actually have a drawer set aside of premade 5 pin molex ready to install to save time. I usually make 10 at a time.

    Internal wiring is not a big must for me and I only recommend it usually if the original wiring is subpar or below the standards.

    In the case of this one, the wiring was sub par, questionable and oxidized in areas plus we were going with a new format so it made sense to change it all...

    Also the wire from the crossovers to the drivers is Supra Rondo. I like it is because it is a warmer wire and it is ultra flexible.

    Thank you :)
