I have had my 980 for about 3 years now. It has saved my @$$ so many times over the years. A couple months ago the speaker went out of it and I almost trashed it but decided to hang on to it. I just found speakers that will work in it today and placed an order for 2 of them. I will get it back to new condition once they arrive.
My real question is how does the 980 compare to a 8500 X50? Give me your honest oppinion because I just purchased the X50 yesterday and If the difference is minimal and I can get the speaker on my 980 working again then I will just return the X50. I also live in maryland if that means anything. I have only ever been tagged 1 time with laser in the years I have owned the 980 so I dont think maryland uses alot of laser. Mostly k and Ka and no POP to my knowledge.
This is also my first post!!!! Great forums!
