I'm impressed of all these great stuff. i got only a small set of gold sony xm's (two 6020 and three 4520) and two ss picasso (4.480 and 2.440) . maybe in a few time they will be old enough for this thread ;-)
I've been looking for one of these for a while. Not exactly modern in that it can "only" handle 4 ohm stereo or 8 ohm mono loads. The one I found was 8/10 condition and works perfectly (well, the "high" channels work great, can't test "low" channels until I get a DIN/RCA adapter). The original wiring harness is in place, but the DIN and rca cables have been replaced. Not too many of these left, especially in this condition...
1982 Rockford Fosgate Punch power 360
90 watts x 4 at 4 ohms
180 watts x 2 at 8 ohms
Orig MSRP = approx. $900
Production numbers were pretty limited, anyone know how many were made? I've heard as few as 50, but no evidence to back it up. I know TomTomJr has at least one and fingaz22 has 2 of them, and I believe DavidInGermany has one.
Still faithfully running 2 Rockford Fosgate Punch 150's from 1989 (just before the HD's).. One bridged to 1 15" Cerwin Vega 'Vega' series since 1999 & the other for mids/highs.
The Vega is definitely a very efficient sub that is LOUD & LOW while looking good doing it!
This is a great thread & took me a few days to read it all. I am a true old schooler since 1989 with Rockford Fosgate. Started with 1 Punch 45, 45 & 75, 75 & 150 and finally 2 150's which I have always run up to this very day. Basically never needed anymore & glad I did hold onto them because they are very valued & respected now! I also still run the RF PA-1HD pre amp eq & XV-1 active electronic crossover all from 1989 era. Started with Punch & Punch Pro 15", Crunch & then Cerwin Vega which I stayed with after hearing it. I run the RF Fanatic Coaxials from 2000 (FRC & HPC) and have since 2003.. loud, crisp & clear! I even still run the Clarion 9772RT 'Magi-Tune' pull out deck from 1991. It was rated #1 out of 4 tested in the August 1991 issue of Car Audio & Electronics. I have a entire U-haul box full of old CA&E, AS&S and other mags out then for car stereo.
* Basically amazing the new generation of kids with true raw old school power & knowledge while bringing back the memories & sound for the fellow old schoolers
Rockford Fosgate Vintage Old School Fanatic! The Punch with a Passion for Performance!
Cerwin Vega! Turn it Up! Since 1954.. The Original Bass!
It is better to be safe than sorry.. Invest in a alarm!
Yeah, trying to thin the collection a little and the 18's take up a ton of space.
I bet they would sound SICK in my xB Too bad they plus the box would make my car pop a wheelie
RFVega, I thought you had been a member here for a while. I'm right there with you on the RF story, now, when are we gonna see some install pics? I'm thinking about putting a RF power 650 in my car powering a single Kicker Solo 10" (old school round one) plus some separates in the doors. I'll have to see if the 650 will fit under my seat (doubtful) to replace my RF power 550x. I don't want to give up any trunk space and I'm 100% stealth right now, the way I like it...
Oops guys, sorry, this is the showoff thread not the discussion thread...my bad.
