Unhappy MB Quart not made in Germany anymore

I just tried to order some extra grills for my NKD116, they said they had closed the plant in Germany and had another speaker manufacture over seas making a new line for them.China/Japan

Does anybody have any of the white grills???
Thanks,Rob

IMHO, they yellow too quickly anyhow. I just went to billet grill covers from Rex Marine, and am very happy with the looks.

I think that happened a long time ago. From what I've heard, someone else is taking over MB Quart again...

Yes, MB Quart is not what they used to be. I wouldn't buy their products anymore.

I was told Maxxsonics bought it from Rockford which didnt have it very long,I bought some in May of 07 still a German speaker, Max still owns it ,they were making them in Germany until around 8 months ago, they said they closed the Germany plant and now have a diff manfg making the speakers for them,They said overseas, I assuming its Japan/Twain?

Max owns MB, Autotek ,Hifonics ,crunch

Max told me they are out of the old style speakers and grills, thay the might get some warrenty ones ,but they have been out for 2 months.

that's sad, I worked for Pacific Coast Marketing (the rep firm that represented MB Quart in so. Cal.) back in '93. They made a great product back then.
