TSX-7's FTW!!! If you didn't have a set of those you were not cool!! Remember the TSX-20's... square woofers!!

I don't remember any other manufacturer making the trim plates light up. Jensen made some crazy looking decks were the shaft covers had buttons on them and no knobs... AZN-500 or somethink like that, they were goldish...

Everyone had a set of TSX-7's or TSX-8's. Here is a shot of part of my rolling Matco cart / test bench. I use an XM Samsung Helix, Pair of TSX-7's, Pair of TSX-8's, Cerwin Vega Turbocharger, Zapco SEQ, Zapco PX, Zapco 151A, Zapco Z-50, and a Clarion 32" sub sitting on top of a safe. I have some other boxed speakers I use too, but this is how I usually use my test-cart.

ALSO, I finally got some pics up of the back, inside, and power plate/side cover of the big blue Linear. I had a few of you asking about it. I will put them in links rather than pictures. Click links below for the pics of the Linear Power ...

Hey Zierbox,
Like the install with the Power II. You wouldn't by chance have one of those still would you?
Sure wish I had pics from back then. I lost most over the years. I do have a few though. I will dig them out... Till then, this is all I can find for now. A video of my car from 93. Autotek, Zapco, JVC, ect...

Don't have much info on it. Still looking for info. I emailed Ray (TIPS) about it, and said that LP made it, but he didn't have much more info either. But that is what I am putting on the Audiobahn 34 in the Honda. Don't know if it will be enough power, but it sure will look good

LOVE the pics of the old Fosgate stuff. Sanyo amps (got a few new in box still ) . The Sony pieces, M&M's, ect... Do you by chance still have any of those?

My M&M Godfathers dry rotted at the surrounds so I tossed them in the trash. Years ago a family member with a substance abuse problem stole all the old school stuff that I had stored in my grandfather's shop so I don't have anything from the late 80s early 90s except for a couple of things that I purchased recently. The two things I miss the most are my purple Linear Power 5002IQ and my Hifonics Zeus V1. The thing that really gets me is that I worked my a$$ off for those items because I was only in high school at the time.

I also miss my first Sony CD players and old school Sony amplifiers that I used for my mids and highs when I was running Rockford Fosgate Punch amps for the subs. How come Sony had to go in the crapper with regards to a good, quality product?

I still have a lot of M&M's . I will post some pics tonight maybe.
On Sony, I don't know if they still make nice amps or not. A few years ago, they had a high end line of amps. Big $$$. Tristan had one of the big ones that he would not "give" me. Think it retailed at $4k or so.
And no Tristan, No JVC jamboxes... But I do have a big Magnavox. The one with the 8" sub in the center, and a pair of 6" mids.

I have bought and sold sooo much stuff over the years and that (Linear 5002IQ) is the ONLY one that I really, really wish I had kept.

Rob, sure... I am south of Dallas. Waxahachie/Midlothian. Would like to see your Literature. Any M&M Lit? Or does anyone have any brochures of M&M? I want the one with the "Tri-Phase" setup. (6x9 or 8" woofer/mid/tweet) ... Also looking for early Rockford Fosgate Lit from 82 thru 85 that shows the Power 360/II/VI ...

^^'s right there is nothing "Blue Thunder" in the amp pictured... The ORIGINAL Terminators & Blue Thunders were identical to the Orion HCCA's & the PPI ProMOS's of the day... ultra low impedance stable... 25-50w a channel @ 4-ohm to get under IASCA's power class rules.. etc

My old '75 Mustang license plate was "OHM MY 75" Running (2) Term 250's on something like 10-12 speakers.... a passive crossover network/stabilizing network that took up the entire underside of the trunk lid. LOL... OH the glory days...

look in the old CAr Stereo Reviews for the break down of Lucio P.'s (JL Audio Founder) of his Mustang GT to check out the insane passive networks we used to create to drive multiple speakers on 1 or 2 amps @ ultra low impedances....

Wasn't Orion formed by someone who was originally affiliated with Rockford Fosgate? At least that is the rumor that I was always told. Also, prior to the DEI buyout, Orion was based in Arizona.

Orion was on W Julie Dr, PPI was on S McKemey St, and Fosgate was on what else... Fosgate way all in Tempe, AZ. PPI was 3.5 miles from Orion... They are all within 10 miles of each other, Story was that the same three people founded all three of them... Obviously Jim Fosgate founded Rockford Fosgate, I think Richard Lemay founded Orion, he passed away in 92. I don't really know much about PPI, I always considered them and Orion the same, the DIN cables were the same the phantom power accessories were interchangeable. There were a lot of similarities.

Here is some good reading if you want to learn a little car audio history, talks some about AudioMobile... good stuff.

All Fosgate and Rockford Fosgate (pre-87) has the same DIN connectors. PPI, Orion, Fosgate, and Rockford Fosgate will interchange with the DIN accessories.

Many thanks for posting this article. It now puts to rest some of the urban legends I heard about Orion and Rockford Fosgate. It also provides some insight as to why Orion and Precision Power were so dang similar

Obviously Jim Fosgate founded Rockford Fosgate, I think Richard Lemay founded Orion, he passed away in 92. I don't really know much about PPI, I always considered them and Orion the same, the DIN cables were the same the phantom power accessories were interchangeable. There were a lot of similarities.

Here is some good reading if you want to learn a little car audio history, talks some about AudioMobile... good stuff.

I'm pretty sure Jim founded Fosgate and partnered with or bought out by Rockford. I've seen numerous pics of pre-Rockford, Fosgate amps and pre-amps.
