im using fusion gear in my car: speakers, power plant amps

and have used subs from them before. I've never had a problem and seems pretty good for value.

But with anything you pay for what you get, but if its just an entry level system go for it :)

They seem all good! I have 2x10 subs and 6x9's and they crank. Not sure on the head decks though!

This brand cracks me up. They were all the rage back when i got my licence back in 04. Everyone wanted fusion and so many people had fusion stickers on cars. The moment supercheap picked em up they went to a shitty brand that noone wants!

Fusion make top quality gear at a descent price, they have three levels of quality
CS Series (baisc entry level, the green gear, cheap and nasty)
Performance Series (middle of the range)
Powerplant Series (their competition grade gear, awesome)

The worst thing about Fusion is their marketing with their basic CS Series being sold at places like supercheap its poorly displayed. Rescently purchased their Powerplant 12inch sub and DA Series mono amp to run it, cost me $225 for sub and $325 for amp bang for buck it simply cant be beat, and will outperform something like a Alpine Type R 12 and for 1/3 of the cost. Will it stand upto say a Hertz Mille series gear no it wont but for the cost its really awesome gear, its hard to beleive its so low priced which doesnt affect quality at all. I really do like the Powerplant gear.

we ought a heap of prs of fusion splits when they were in repco on special for $30 a pr, think they retailed for around $150 at the time, we put them in the front of the mrs mazda mpv and they go pretty hard, even just off a head unit, they are made in NZ i think,
i used to compete in the IASCA car audio comps many yrs ago and have had many brands from kenwood dual mags (desingened by the guy who also designed alpine dd drives) alpine dd drives, RF punch and power series, polk audio and MB Quart, the build quality of the fusion splits we have (they are the reactor model) are fantastic, low end is excellent even just off a H/U, midbass is even better and the tweeters dont sound like they are gonna deafen you with a high frequency mess.
i cant personally vouch for any other stuff, but i have a mate who used to compete when i did and hes has subs and amps and swears by them, i havent heard or seen them (he lives in WA, im in Tassie)
for value for money i would say yes, but make sure you set up and tune it properly, and run your speakers in (lol, yes run them in, they will sound better and live longer, just like your engine will), you can make a cheap system sound as good as a moderate-expensive system if its setup nice, too many times have i seen ppl wit big $$ systems rock upto comps thinking they will kick ass, only to get their ass kicked cause they didnt want to spend the money getting it installed properly or even just tuned,
wat type of sound are you chasing, big bass or sound quality, and wat type of music do you listen to??

I've found this useful when the aussie dollar is good.

www.onlinecarstereo.com

You can save some $$$ while still being able to get good gear.

Got my amps delivered to my door cheaper than my local supplier gets em for at cost price.

Done install of the daily with the fusion power plant 12" and mono amp, wholy shit sounds awesome, bang for buck cant be beat. For a "competition" series sub its very tight and responsive surprised the crap out of me.

the green series of fusion is absolute junk, had some splits, key word there, HAD lol they were the junkest speakers i've ever had, if you want bang for buck at an entry level price then i'd suggest response audio from jaycar
