  1. Interesting that JL is ranked number two in both speaker and amp sales yet does no business with Walmart or Best Buy. I would think they are polling the independents as well.

  2. I always wonder whether data like this is generated by the Mfr. sending it in, or retailers reporting it. I HAVE NEVER been asked what’s selling in my store. Kicker? I’m thinking this is walmart and best buy being asked for their sales reports. Not sure of that but like I said nobody polls the independents who sell the bulk of the high end stuff.
