These are two recently purchased Bel 995's.
Here is the picture:
Both have version 4.5 firmware.
The one on the left is black and no 'Beltronics' on the front.
I got it from Abe's of Maine (over the internet).
The one on the right is silver and has Beltronics on the front.
I got it from Circuit City.
As you can see, they also have different top plates.
The circuit city site http://tinyurl.com/feq57 actually shows the black version. The Bel site shows the silver version http://www.beltronics.com That is opposite of my purchases.
- why two different shells?
- is my warrenty valid from the model purchased over the internet (saves $150)?
- does the silver version tend to get less hot in the sun?
PS. The Circuit City version comes with a nice hard-case and SmartPlug, but no extra plates for the top. The Abe's of Maine version came with a little soft bag, no SmartPlug, but did have a powered 12V speaker (like you would need it, the RD is already quite loud).
