Encouraging security dealers Dealers who install Adept Trim-Rings can quickly and easily hold a shootout in their client’s home or office Dealers who install Adept Trim-Rings can quickly and easily hold a shootout in their client’s home or office. This allows their client to pick and choose which Adept speakers they want to buy based on their listening preferences and budget.
