*2nd Chance* Hybrid Audio Technologies Components/Baffles Group Buy *4/21/09-5/21/09*
OK guys and gals, I had planned to do a "Tax Time" group buy last month but things got so crazy around here that I wasn't able to do it. Lately many people have been reminding me I promised to do it again so I figured I'll make time to do so! :) We had a great response on the last go around and all of the guys I have spoken to that received/installed the speakers are very pleased with the results (you guys can feel free to post your impressions here! :)). Also, I may have failed to mention previously that once you receive these I am available for some tuning tips by phone only to help you get the best performance possible! :)
I am going to just copy/paste the previous thread below since everything will basically be the same. Also, for you more advanced guys I will also post the prices for the entire Legatia line as they will be included in the discount as well (the deal on the baffle/adapters is for Tacoma owners only or other Toyota model owners that happen to use the same baffle/adapter).
Thanks to all that got in last time and thanks to those that will get in this time! :)
Hello guys and gals! In case you haven't seen it I recently started a 2005+ TACOMA SQ INSTALL TUTORIAL HERE where I used a line of speakers from HYBRID AUDIO TECHNOLOGIES. This company was founded and is owned by Scott Buwalda who is a multi championship winning SQ competitor/speaker designer that has been featured in many magazines over the years. Originally he started building "competition level" speakers that were intended to be run in an active system for the more advanced user and they have been winning championships in the states/abroad since they were released (you can check out some of their accomplishments on the website above). Due to demand for a more "user friendly" set the company introduced the CLARUS LINE.
This line uses a custom designed passive crossover network and was designed to perform VERY WELL in the factory door locations making it easy for even a novice to achieve top notch Sound Quality. :) After reading the reviews stating these speakers performed better than speakers costing many times more I bought a set and was absolutely blown away as IMO they performed WAY better than I would have ever imagined for a set in this price range just as the reviewers stated. :D Those that have seen me around the forums over the years know I do not take recommending audio gear lightly and I don't get excited by gear that performs as should be expected for the price. On the other hand I DO get excited by gear I believe performs FAR BETTER than the price would lead you to believe and this is definitely one of those cases. :) For this reason I started recommending these to members looking for TOP NOTCH SQ at what I consider a very reasonable price and quite a few have already purchased them. Well the company noticed all the guys I sent and offered to allow me to host a group buy on the forum so I jumped at the opportunity to offer you guys a GREAT set of components for an even better price! :)
Here is how it will work:
PayPal is the easiest form of payment (my account is marvsplace "at" webtv "dot" net and don't forget to format that properly!) however if you'd like to send a check/money order etc PM me and I will let you know where to send it. If you pay with PayPal please use "HYBRID AUDIO GROUP BUY" as the subject and include the following info in the notes section. If mailing payment please send a note with the same info as well as your return address and zip code.
Hopefully this all made sense and please let me know if it doesn't! :)
BTW, this offer CANNOT be combined with ANY other offer or promotion
ORDERS TO DATE (05/21/09)
Thanks all! :)
Here is the review from Car Audio and Electronics Magazine and if anyone here who has already purchased these would like to post their impressions please feel free to do so!
These are the prices BEFORE the 20% discount and please do your own calculating so I don't have to list each one separately! :D Also, please round UP that penny before calculating ie $500.00 instead of $499.99 so it will be easier for me to keep track of! Thanks! :)

I went and checked out their website it sounds like they put out amazing products and the way the explain how to make speakers work best in the product manual was pretty amazing
LINK TO MR MARV FORUM AT TACOMA WORLD FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN"T SEEN IT!
BTW, in case I didn't mention it above I wanted to let everyone know that if you would like to get in but are unable to pay the entire amount at once just contact me and I will work something out for you! :) Also, last time many guys ended up getting enclosures/subs/amps etc from me along with the speakers so I will be adding other incentives for those additional purchases as well! :)
I got a deal awhile back for a set of L1Pros and L8's. Great speakers if you're truly serious about sound.
OK we finally broke the ice (thanks Tyler! :)) but I've had over 40 emails/PM's since this started and still haven't heard from my "kiss and a promise" guys that said they would get in the last Friday's payday! ;)
In any case I'd really like to get this party going since I am also needing to focus on my 2009 West Coast Car Audio BBQ/Meet and IASCA Competition plans (check the audio forum soon for details! :)) so this is what I'm going to do....I will buy any remaining sets myself again so I can GUARANTEE :D the discount to ALL that get in! :)
Even though getting GREAT speakers at a GREAT price should be enough, :D to hopefully entice you guys a bit more all that get in prior to the end date will be entered into a drawing where ONE of you will receive the following www.raamaudio.com deadening products ABSOLUTELY FREE! :eek: (you gotta pay shipping of course! :))
(1) 30 ft Roll of RAAMmat (enough to do your entire front doors)
(2) yards of Ensolite Foam
(enough to do your front doors)
(1) can of spray adhesive for the Ensolite)
Please note there will be a drawing for the above and ONLY ONE will win the FREEBIES! :)
I got a pair of these from Marv a couple months ago and replaced my JL Audio XR componets and I couldn't be happier. These things really sound great. I wondered if they were worth the extra cost over a new pair of JL's (which I do like a lot) and it quickly became obvious that they were. I'm driving my with a JL Audio 300/2 amp and I installed ram mat all throughout the doors. If you are on the fence I promise you that you won't be sorry if you get them.
Thanks Jay Hawks!
Not sure where all my "kiss and a promise" guys are :confused: but hopefully they will get in soon! :)
Just wondering if anyone in phoenix has a set installed I might be able to listen too. I cant see dropping almost $7 bills without at least hearing them lol
I've been looking at eD for awhile, but willing to see how these sound.
over 1100 views, 70+ emails/PMs and only 2 buyers?!? :confused: :confused:
One day to go! :)
OK guys it is picking up on the last day as usual and a couple of guys have already paid! :) I also have several asking if they can pay tomorrow (Friday) when they get paid so I will leave it open until at least then but I sure hope you guys don't leave me hanging like others have! :eek: :eek:
Almost forgot, if we do by chance get the 10 minimum (or close to it at my discretion!) by tomorrow I will still have the drawing for the RAAMmat stuff above! :)
I've been so busy I didn't realize it was a holiday weekend and my order won't ship to me until Tuesday so you guys have a little more time to get in! :)
BTW, I am pretty easy to get along with most of the time :p and have allowed several guys to do a "layaway plan" so they could get the discount but I am EXTREMELY busy so I would appreciate if you contact me only after you are absolutely positive you are ready/able to get in!
