    Clarion APA 4203

    Item(s) for Sale: Clarion APA 4203 4 channel amp.




    Item(s) Description/Condition: I've got a Clarion 4 channel amp. The amp was made back in 1999 made in the USA. Rated at 50x4 @ 4 and 75x4 @ 2, however it is fused for 50 amps so it most likely puts out a good bit more than what its rated for, but i cannot say that for sure. Its beat up a little, has been repainted however it was a ****** job. but looks ok from a few feet away. prolly 6/10. 10/10 functionally. Pretty small footprint, 14.5" long 9" wide 2" tall would be great for under a seat. It does need 2 25 amp fuses and 2 screws need to be replaced. The fuses can be had for 4 bucks on ebay (cant find anyone selling locally) and the screws can be had on ebay for 8 bucks i think.




    Price: 80 + ship




    Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information: On buyer




    Item Pictures:



    What it looked like when i first got it



    You can see the flaws here, mainly in the 3 corners, 2 are scratched and the third looks like something got under the paint when it got painted.









    (List pictures in this section, 1st picture should be your username/date if you have less than 10 positive feedbacks with the i-Trader system or less than 10 references that you have sold to in the past. (These must be listed in your signature, or a link provided to a feedback thread listing these references)).

    Ill take another look later, but I've attempted to get a pic of the board but its like you can't get to it. When you take the bottom of the amp off you see the bottom of the board and I can't figure out how to get to the top of the board to see the guts. But like I said I'll take another look in a couple hours.

    Oh, okay. I know exactly what you mean.

    In that case I wouldn't attempt it. Might damage the packages depending on how they're affixed to the heatsink.

    Thank you, though.
