Here is the Rockford Fosgate wall that I built. I know a few of you have seen pics of it. I am now dismantling it ,and selling off most of it to pay for the Honda audio car I am building. Will miss it...

Here you go. Is this the one you are looking for?

On the collection, I have "quantity", but there are many more "quality"
collections out there that out do mine by far. Quality-vs-Quantity. My
collecting philosophy is: If I like it, I get it. But that has gotten out of
hand, so I am starting to sell some of it off.

Holy Crap this was my first CD player for the Blazer EVER! It was great but the tuner finally went bad and it would emit a high pitched screech if I turned it to AM/FM. I sold it to a buddy for $25 so he could have a CD player in his truck (knowing he wouldn't have a radio) The 5176 and the Clarion 73EQ were the $hit or at least I thought I was the $hit! After the Clarion I upgraded to an Alpine with remote that I sold with the Blazer back in '02.

What is that red and aluminum sony amp worth? I have access to a 4 channel like that, maybe it's a 5, not sure. It's in a pawn shop for $150, I can scoop it for about $120. Is that a steal?
i had one. very good clarity. footprint very big for the power it puts out. most of them have a switchable voltage/amps switch depending on the ohms you want to run. I found that amp fantastic for jazz and horn sections. Mine was 75Wrms x 4. Dual separate power supplies. I paid over $700 back when it was in stores.

All I have left is a 650 that is in serious need of repair. It is on Ebay. Pretty rough but fixable. Do have a Power 1000 left if you need it.

I had the 6770 (the ProAudio version of that HU) in my first real system. I wanted the 7770 but I didn't need the digital out. It went to a Punch 40dsm, a
Granite 60.2, many different front speakers and 3 10W6s.

I just found an old Sherwood SCP-1002BP, Carver M-240, SOAT SA-2100,
Ultra linear UL1700. Some old Coustic stuff as well. All in one Pawnshop I just happened upon.

I know a lot of this stuff isn't SQ, but would make for a good knock around system in my work truck.

CHEAP!! Keyword here.

Tomorrow night I will come back with a large list of goodies from several local spots.

I hope I can get as much feedback as possible on the stuff.

Off topic now..

Anyone know of Pioneer 6.5's that are offered as OEM on certain cars? I think it was an Infiniti. I grabbed a pair of 6.5's for $10 (with guarantee) from a junk yard, I think they came out of an Infiniti, (may have been a Saab or Volvo) pretty sure they are OEM. Look almost like the TS that I used to own which sounded decent.

Found a pair of Phillips 4" in a Volvo, huge powerful magnets, left them there.

Are there any quality OEM drivers that I should look for in the Salvage yard? This one place lets you pull any part yourself. They charge $3.00 a speaker. I found a lot of Bose, but I passed on those.

There are a few High end imports there, Saab, Lexus, Volvo, Infinity, VW, Mostly 90's, BMW 's (much older)

For a knock around system that sounds good.

To make $ buying up speakers, buy the Bose. Then buy refoam kits and redo them. I haven't checked in awhile, but refoamed Bose speakers (the 4") were bringing about $20 each a few years ago. People would get them from cars and put them in their 901 home speakers. Unsure of what the market is for them now. Do some research on them.

Ok, I did some digging in my shop today. There are a lot of pics of some real neat old school stuff. If you are in your 40's, you might remember some of these. If you are 50+, you might remember even more. Some of this is OLD!!!
Enjoy the pics...

1989 IASCA FINALS MAGAZINE---RULES/INFO/ADS/ECT -


LINEAR POWER BROCHURE (even shows the LP subs)


EARLY 80's SONY YELLOW BOX (one of my favorite collectibles) This is about half of them, lots of duplicates. Always looking for more...


SOME SONY'S OUT OF THE BOX. (notice the CDX-R88's, and XR-25 thru XR-100


ALWAYS LOOKING FOR MORE OF THESE (Sony A-10 and RMX-2's)


NEW OLD STOCK FROM THE 60's (maybe 50's) Early echo sound


FOUND 3 OF THESE, 2 are still new in the boxes (unpictured). Alphasonic BI-AMP rack. Looking for a TRI-AMP RACK


EARLY TO MID 80's PIONEER. I want some new in the box. Anyone have any?

Thanks, may go there tomorrow. There are tons of Bose.

I just scored a mint pair of IDQ8"s for $40!!

Soundstream Reference 700SX for $80!! Mint..

PPI PC2400 MINT $100

PPI PC4400? $100 I forget the model number, matches the 4200 but a 4 channel MINT!!

Alpine MRP-M500

Autotek MM8000.5 MINT (Mean machine, 5 channel, US made I believe)

PPI 2030M MINT

JVC KD-LH500 MINT

Pioneer DEH-P5000UB BNIB

Aura MR675H

Clif Designs CDQ3X

Clif Designs CD2.2LX

Kicker ZRX ZR120

Kicker KX 200.2 Older black one, before they went to sh*t.

3 Kicker Impulse, 2) small 2 channel, 2) 4 Channel, CHEAP

Diamond D5 800.1


Sony's XM7547, XM1002HXXM-552HX

SOAT SA-2100

Carver M-240

Power Bass QD12's. Any good? 3 in a box for $120.

An Old School Orion Extreme, all black 2 channel monster sub amp, didn't get the model number, 1 channel blown $60

A bunch of Powerbass amps as well. Flea market? Any good if purchased cheap?

A buttload of Fosgate, are the solid black, smooth, no fin, rectangle shaped ones Old School? Found a few of those, plus these,
Punch 125.2,
Punch 160.4,
[email protected],
All mint with end caps,
2) [email protected]'s 1 mint 1 decent, no end caps.

$320+tax for all 5 Fosgates. Good deal? Would any of the 5 combined make for a decent SQ setup? I was thinking the 800 for subs, 2) 250a2's for midbass, 1 bridged to each side, then the others for midrange and tweets, maybe the 160.4 bridged for midrange then the 125.2 for tweets. This would afford tons of headroom for front stage as well as a nice sub section.

Ultra Linear, UL1700, and 2 other matching UL4475.

Coustic AMP215, AMP800Q, AMP321QB plus many others, the older versions, Grey with Yellow, or just Grey.

I don't know anything about the coustic and UL's, are they cheap Flea market brands? Tons of all those, cheap. I've heard them make seriously loud bass in some cars down here.

This is from only 3 Pawnshops that I had a chance to visit today. Feedback on any of this stuff would be appreciated.

Check on Ebay with the Bose, and see what the refoamed ones are
bringing before you go buying any.
Will do well with the M-240 Carver. Maybe $150-$250 on Ebay.
If you see a Coustic 150, 300, or 500 I would be interested.
They are black with white lettering and a round emblem in the
top of the heatsink.
The rest are newer that what I don't know much about. Find
the Orion model number. That one might be a deal too.
