    How much should I sell my MMats 500.1d for?

    A while ago, I found an insane deal on craigslist. Over 15 decks (4 pioneers, 1 clarion, 1 alpine), over 10 amps (mostly jensen and the like), and a couple p.o.s. eq's for $80. Besides the decent decks, there was a Coustic Power Logic 260, a Unic 100+100 (wtf? sounds alright), and...an MMats 500.1d I bought all this without even noticing the MMats amp, because it was worth it with everything else I saw. Then, after finding it and looking it up...dear Lord did I get a good deal!

    Recently I traded a Rockford Fosgate T3002 (paid $100), a blown Kenwood deck (paid $0), and $110 for an Atomic Apocalypse X 18" with an RE MT recone in a manufacturer-spec vented box. It's a dual 2-ohm, so I am finally able to draw 1 ohm resistance from the amp. Holy hell does it bump, more than 500 watts rms it would seem. However, having a sub rated at 3000 watts RMS tempts 1000 watts rms +. So...I'm looking to upgrade.

    I did some research, but all I could find was a $480 new price tag. I have absolutely no idea what to list this for on craigslist and/or ebay. After I clean it up a little bit, it should be in 9.5/10 condition. How much do you guys think I could get out of it by waiting for that special buyer, and how much do you think I could get if I am in a rush to sell it?

    I also figure now would be a good time to ask the same question for the Coustic Power Logic 260 and the Unic amps. Both are in like 7.5/10 condition and work fine. Same problem as the MMats, no online information regarding selling prices (and no info on the Unic amp at all!).

    By the way, MMats customer service *****! I couldn't get ahold of them via phone, and they only replied to half of my emails barely answering only half of the questions I asked. Only now did I figure out that everyone else feels the same way lol. I LOVE the brand, but every brand has its downfall I guess.

    Thanks for any and all help!

    Your best bet is ebay. Some people bid crazy on some things.

    Well if I'm not gunna get at least $150 out of it, I'm not selling it. I need to use that money and that money alone to upgrade, and $75 isn't going to get me a good 1000 watt rms amp.

    Any thoughts on the Coustic and Unic? Does anyone here even know anything at all about Unic?

    Hah no way? That's very surprising. Maybe I'm lucky then that there is no info about it, I may find a buyer who thinks its rare and awesome lol.

    I do know, however, that the coustic is pretty decent. I have read up that it is a little underrated, able to push around 250 watts rms. Any idea though on how much I could get for it? Currently, my buddy wants to buy it for $50 but I'm wondering if I could get more out of it.

    Re: How much should I sell my MMats 500.1d for?

    sweet, thanks for letting me know! that's exactly how much i expected to get from it. but why would i only get $75 for a top of the line amp (MMATS) that puts out twice the real watts compared to $50 for a coustic amp? are you sure you guys didn't just try to lowball me in hopes i would sell it to you for cheap? thats fine if you did, i do it all the time, i just need to know for sure so I can get the right amount of money off of it on craigslist
