Product Brand & Model:

Soundstream Reference 300sx


Condition of all items:

Used, completely functional.

8/10 cosmetically.


Total Price: :

Asking $80 shipped


Shipping Terms: :

UPS or Priority Mail flat rate included in price, CONUS


Pictures:









Additional info:

Cool thing about it is that there is independent input sensitivity for each channel. It would make a nice tweeter amp in an active system. It could even run a basic set of two-way components or a small sub as well.

*edit: After cleaning it up, the chassis looks much better. You can see one significant scratch on the edge of the top fin, and the bottom is chipped in places, but the inside is immaculate.

That's a great price, good luck with sale.
Though you should definitely take some pics.
You can drive lots of things with this amp, it will sound great on speakers as well as subs. And the sub does not have to be small by the way.

It appears to be in good exterior condition, just some dust which can easily be removed.
You should have asked a little more than $80 shipped for it, but too late to change that now. Should make someone very happy, especially at that price.

For those who are concerned about the dubious reputation of the sx series:
A bad batch of parts caused a certain percentage of sx amps to blow the very first time when powered up which caused a dent in Soundstream's popularity.

However, the sx amps still alive today are more than fine and just as reliable as any other amp, with the benefits of crossovers, 5 volt gains and as mentioned by the seller the separate left and right gains, as opposed to the original Refs.
Keep in mind that the 10.0 which stil fetches huge amounts of money today, is from the same s / sx series with the same higher failure rates, but as it is not called 10.0s or 10.0sx they are not treated as such by unknowing buyers. Same goes for these, those alive today are very reliable.

Good luck with sale. Don't drop your price, good amp for a good price.

Yeah, the sx amps that were bad are pretty much all dead gone at this point I think. The ones that are still going strong are likely to last just like their non-sx predecessors.

That is very correct, Chaos.
One must only be careful of BNIB units.
In that case, the seller must first be asked to power it up.

I am the seller :p

...but that is a good point, I didn't think to turn it on before I snapped the picture so you could see the power lights.

these s/sx line of amps are verry nice, indeed. i have small collection, and keep an eye out to snatch up any broken ones i can find. there is actually one other thing- the power supply section can be beefed up successfully to handle serious abuse.
specs:
2 x 75W @ 4 ohms
2 x 150W @ 2 ohms
2 x 150W @ 1 ohm
1 x 150W @ 8 ohms bridged
1 x 300W @ 4 ohms bridged
1 x 300W @ 2 ohm bridged
@12.5viirc
2ohm bridge and 1ohm stereo with the rail voltage switch set on high current
