Re: dna 1 recap !

dam, that big system sounds cool!

yes the dna 1 sounds way better and the protection mode dosen't go on any more since the entire cap upgrade!! ;-)
I do favor my belles 150a hot rod.. for what ever reason, ( mids & realistic sound ) that is with smaller speakers.
i love that belles stuff too!

The Motorola runs pretty hot...
