Here are some of my old art series amps. My wife recreated the art graphics for me as she is a digital designer and one hell of a wizard with graphics. my Black art series are very diff, indeed as I have never seen anyone do this.

I had these printed on a high quality vinyl. I had some of them for sale on Ebay awhile ago and had many requests for diff versions but I was in a bad motorcycle wreck this last summer so it kind of put a hold on creating all of the diff. ART graphics. thinkong of having the wife make some more.

Let me know what you think. Should I use the Black ones in my setup or go with the original white.

Thanks Rhino

There was alot of intrest in these when I had them up for auction. I had over two hundred emails or so. I feel somewhat bad as i was planning to get people what they wanted but unfortunatly during the auction timeframe I hit a deer on my crotchrocket at 60 mph. and was in the hospital for along time. just now getting back on my feet. so I will probably have the wife do her thing again.

Thinking of doing the A1200.2 in black next as I will be running two of them in my vehicle.

The black looks spectacular! That is what PPI should have done from the get go.

On a side note, I am extremely jealous of your collection :D I miss my Art Series Amps :(

they are printed on black vinyl with a clear vinyl layer over the top of them.
thanx for the reply
the reason why I asked is most of these ampss have some sort of scratch on them and it would be nice to have the heat sink polished or powder
coated some custom color then just apply the clear sticker and wah-lah custom out the butt
could you do this for the AM series ? as those models are what I like out of all of PPI's line-up.
are you thinking of producing more of these?

Wow... I love the graphics on the black... really pops.

Kinda can't go wrong with either, but I *really* like the black...
I agree with the black "pops" but I've always liked the white ones for some reason. I guess they just have a "cleaner" look to them.:confused:

Sounds like you might have something there. I don't know what's all involved in designing/making those but I bet if you were able to create different logo/designs per request you would get some interest.

Looks nice! Go with the white!:)

Both look good, but I have always liked the black art amps more than the white ones. Sold a lot of those Art amps back in my retail days.

Icu

I painted them black then applied the decal and then I put 2 coats of clear over them to give it a nice protective finish.
She could do the AM series if she had a reference to draw from. I do not own any AM amps so I would need a high qlty pic and dimensions of graphic W and ht.

Thanks for all the comments guys my wifes head can now not officially fit through the door as I let her look at the comments. LOL

Now a white background with the circuit board in black would be the cats meow.

Very good work btw
X10,000!!!!

or in like a shadowed grey, or ghosted pearl blue... lots of choices...

I always loved the black with the circuit board on them... wished they had done the white that way...


Looks great... if I provide your wife a face plate of a component, do you think she could recreate it? I have an ID IDX-24 rack-mount style crossover that has scratches & powder coat defects... I'd like to paint it to match the car its going in & then have the graphics redone in a different color... Eric from ID said he can provide me the graphic file...
