In 2005, I lost a lot of car audio to a fire. My home owners insurance did not like my collection. They said I was in the car audio business, and should have business insurance on it. They did not understand how someone would want to collect this stuff. They had to call in a "specialist" to appraise my collection that was damaged. Took over a year for them to appraise everything. I am not in the car audio business, and haven't been since 97 or so. Now I just collect, and finally started a car recently to put a lot of this stuff in. See thread "finally started the 34-Inch subwoofer install".
Man DON'T say stuff like that!!! That's abosolutely my biggest fear... coming home one day and it all being gone... burnt or even worse, stolen.

I'm currently using one of those badboys as my subwoofer amplifier. Best damn sub amp I've ever used. It's running at 1ohm powering a DD3512e... it pushes that woofer to it's limits (and that's no easy task), and never heats up. I don't know how an amp runs at 1ohm in a pretty much unventilated trunk and never heats up.

BTW - I tried powering the same woofer with my RF Power 1000 (pictured earlier in this thread)... it barely moved. The 40UHC.... I think it could pop my DD if I let it.

2 of them...1 Have had since they came out....... I am surprised only a handfull of people know these and only one that is or was actually using it.. Searched on this forum to see if anyone had them...Of course tristan has everything.:D
I remember seeing those in the pioneer catalogs at my local shop back in the day. Nice stuff. Pioneer had some really nice pieces back then. Don't remember if they had any of them in stock or if I just saw pictures, but I always lusted after them. :)

Oh yeah, I just took a photo of those two Linear Power 1502IQs that I left out earlier:



One of them is about to get installed, maybe shortly depending on if I want to work on my car or clean the yard!

ETA: Maybe I should focus on cleaning my work table too :)

anyone have any OLD Clarion decks? With the buttons that go all along the sides and bottom just like my eq (see above)? they had little green horseshoes/cd's that sort of moved across the screen when a cd played?

I'm gung ho about setting up my new system with MP3 & usb capabilities, but I'm be forced to reconsider if I could find one of those.

I have several hundred old decks. Mainly the shaft style. BUT I just so happen to have one that matches your EQ too. I was thinking about asking you for your eq. Looks like you beat me to the punch... But yes, I have one. Maybe 2...

I might sell it.

On the other hand, could you at least post some pics of them? God I miss them.

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.

Lets see what everyones got... I've mostly got SS stuff but picked up a NIB Lanzar LXR100 today.

The first 3 amps are sadly sold :(






















I know I've got some more hiding in closets and what not.. Gotta get the out and get some pics.

I've been thinking more and more about running 2 Rubicon604s and a Rubicon700 again. Or maybe 2 Punch 4080dsms and a 200dsm. Man those Rubis look nice.

*swoon*

Have any others of that style?


And if I were to sell my eq, what would you be willing to pay? We can take this to PM's if you want.

LOVE the PX's. That is a quality sub!
Anyone remember these? These are real old-school.
