While I recognize that you are stating your opinion I think it is only fair of me as a representative of the Roswell product line to clarify some of the points you have made- At the end of the day all users in this forum can form their own opinions and preferably they will use this info to go out and try the products and truly make their own decisions.
You clearly state that you are "not even close to an engineer" where our design department has a combined 20+ years experience in the field- Our 2007 swivels have been designed, reviewed, thoroughly tested and critiqued by a number of designers and riders all with personal experience with the product. Our new swivel for Supra and our own line handle double ups very well- Your 10-12 double up opinion is unsubstantiated and in my opinion a reckless claim.
You are correct that the Speaker light bars are not anodized- The decision was made between the customer and ourselves that the desired finish was a chrome polished look- Anodizing chrome polished aluminum changes the "chrome" finish and was not an option we decided to pursue on the customers behalf. We have been known to anodize, powder coat, polish and chrome plate many of our products including the introduction of our TEK coating available on our Area 52 towers (an industry first). We did however test and consider anodizing- all part of our R and D process. It should be noted that the advantages to a polished finish besides the "chrome" look is the ability to restore this finish through regular maintenance.
While you say your opinion is that there are better products out there for cheaper you need to recognize that the Roswell customer is looking for specific features in the Roswell product line- Clean lines, chrome polished finish, tight and neat wiring, LED's standard, and a company that has been around for close to a decade and will continue to be around and back our products into the future. While there may be products that function (depending on the definition) in the same manor as our line, feature for feature it is our belief that is backed up by sales and service that our products certify their value.
Again your admitted lack of actual experience with our products allows a discerning potential customer of ours to take your opinions and use them to base a purchase decision upon. Furthermore, I believe Dale was looking for information on our Unison line of speakers something you fail to even mention in your post.
I do thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify some of our decisions in the industry and we wish you and everyone on here a great season...
