Duane- In the 80's and 90's Sound Stream was a local electronics company based in Folsom Calif... (Blue Ravine Rd actually) and they manufactured mostly great car audio products with a small attempt at doing some home and pro gear as well. Most of their products were made in the USA, woofers in house (If I remember correctly) and amps down the hill in Rancho Cordova. In it's last few years the business was owned by a lady named Donna who didn't seem to know crap about audio. A string of bad engineering and manufacturing decisions would ultimately be their demise until the name and certain assets were bought up by another company. I don't remember the name of the new owners but they own several mid fi car audio brands with the newest being PPI. Anyway, Soundstream went from awesome USA built product to a bunch of overseas product.....not that, that is not inherently bad, just not what the name used to represent!
Gosh I feel old now!
