HAHA - Same for me. I thought the IR that Mark included with his patch was better than a lot of the stock speakers. I've changed the speaker on a few of my patches to the scooped red wirez IR and it made my patches sound 100X better and note that a few of them are medium gain patches. Now that I can hear the difference with a GREAT IR I have no problem spending the money them.Sportacus said:I cant understand anyone saying this IR sucks. In fact it was this clip that switched me on to the Red Wirez IRs and persuaded me to buy them. I downloaded Marks EVH patch and it is fantastic!!
