Their website is www.dcgoldaudio.com. I should have some of their speakers to try in a few days. I remember how good they sounded in previous boats and its a full range speaker so there is no tweeter to smoke or crossovers and caps to inhibit the audio path to the speaker. Cant wait to hear em myself.

I hope that the new company does not change much and also has a better marketing machine. They were always great speakers.

Not being negative here but I've never heard a set of Babbs that I liked. Been in many cigs and heard many systems where they were used and was never impressed. someone explain the draw of them to me.

Had them in my boat. 10" and 5-1/4" and i was not impressed. Switched out to Cerwin Vega 10' subs and Memphis made a huge difference.
