Hey im an Interior Design Major, i gotz to dress like this! I have to ride that line between insane and genius...otherwise you end up having to only buy Dual brand audio from then on. It was in a textbook i believe. If you ever shop at Tommy Bahama and enjoy the looks of the store, you can thank me

VSE Quantum FTW!!!! I've got about three of those and two or three Derringer II's... those are from a day when car security was serious.

I really wish they hadn't gone out of business!!

The only way for it to be in better condition is... Yep, new in the box with the factory tape uncut.



I'm a soundstream Addict lately. You can see (2) MC300's there, an MC140, MC245, ClassA100II, (2) D100II, (2) Ref1000s, Ref500sx, (4) Ref300 and (2) Ref200.





That's just the Soundstreams. I'll pull out the Zed's next.

I don't know if that is a good thing or not. I pulled out some Harrisons that have been taped up new in the box for about 12 years. I opened them, and all the chrome was starting to peel. Better off to check what is inside and make sure moisture hasn't gotten to them, or ???

Just a suggestion...
When I opened up the Harrisons, there were 3 mint, one slightly peeled chrome, and one was really peeled. I am guessing the one on with the really peeled chrome somehow got moisture to it. But all 5 were sealed, new in box... Boxes showed no signs of any problems. Unsure if it was moisture, or what happened. Could have just been a bad chrome job from the factory.

I'd say it was painted. If it was original, it would have the soundstream writing on it, no? Cool paint job though... You should be able to tell by removing the bottom plate, unless they took the time to paint the inside too....

I found more pictures of some of my old car equipment, this was 10 years ago 1997-1998

Splash Neon 604 amp, I don't even know if they were good or not, but they sounded VERY GOOD





My first in dash monitor, this was when 5.6" LCD monitors cost more than $500 10 years ago, bought this one on parts express. This was connected to a house DVD with a DC/AC converter, Also shown is a Pioneer Head Unit when they came out with OEL display.


OLD uggly Sony HU and the Simpsons playing from a 12v VCR.


Not that old US Acoustics amps bought them in I guess it was 2002-03, these are the only ones that I still have. For Sale too hehe


2005 Ford Ranger Edge (new project)

Nope. SSs only ever came in blue/teal-ish colors depending on the generation and line.

These are a little hard to find new anymore. Would like more. Maybe someone on here will know of a stash in Germany (like the LP stash found recently).

That's what I thought. Of course I had never seen those Charles Weiland Orions before either... so I second guessed myself.

That SS looks really good... makes me want to custom paint something!!
