    That must be it.....Apparently the going price for used equipment these days is 95% of new pricing.

    And that is with me "working the price.". I fully understand that the listed price is only an asking price. But every single person I've pm'ed comes back saying their price is "firm.". That, or they'll only budge $10 (big deal ).

    And your "then just don't buy it then" sentiment is correct.....and I won't. I'm not one of the stupid consumers that are contributing to this ridiculousness.
    Agreed. I'm not broke. I'm cheap. Lol.

    My favorite is "NO TRADES!!1!!!11!!" Really? What if I were to trade you something that worth 10x what you have? I know what they mean, but it makes you sound like a douche when you scream about it that way.

    And don't even get me started on the idiots on CL. At least the guys on the forums are pretty savvy. Those guys are clueless. Or don't have internet. Or both. They want MORE than retail. Lol.

    Re: Wtf is with people's used amp prices

    Hahaha, agree with taylorfade. I just don't get paying so much for an amp. Power is power. Call me cheap, but I'm not going to pay a ton for power. There's plenty of amps out there that are very reliable, and put out power for cheap. There's no magic in electronics.

    But I do agree with the no trades thing. I've got the most stupid questions about trades. The last time I was selling a mint solid audio f2500d, I got an offer for some Pyle equipment.....really???

    I am

    I usually list what I am specifically looking for in trades (if any), but dumb trade offers are like lowballs. I just say, "No thanks," and move on with my life. I don't get why people get so upset about lowballs. It's the same exact thing we are talking about, but in reverse. People want stuff cheap. What's the harm in asking? People get all offended like, "Are you f'n serious!? OMG This amp is worth a billion dollars."

    Look up the great amplifier challenge guys.

    Facts:
    If you aren't clipping, power output is the same, and you aren't utilizing any filtering, you are not going to hear any difference.

    If you do, go collect that $10,000.

    That's not to say it's going to be a good reliable, easy to use amp. Don't mistake it for that. That's what people pay more money for.

    Fuckin idiots on this site now apparently.

    Just cause an amp says it does 2000 watts does not mean it will actually do 2000 watts. Most cheap amps are way way way overrated and do a fraction of what they say. That's why quality equipment is so much more expensive. You are paying for the power plus the build quality itself.

    so you're saying a 5000w boss amp puts out more power than SAZ4500D? So if I started a company and put together a cheap *** amp and stuck a 5000w sticker on it, does that mean it does 5000w?

    Gotta love these little 12 year olds. I remember when there used to be true technical discussion on some of these sites.

    All these kids know nowadays is hearsay about what amp is uber kewl. They have no idea why they're spending so much on an amp.

    Better to spend your money on install and drivers than power.

    How is it disrespectful? I'm making a offer on your stuff. If you don't like it, don't take it. I think your listed price is disrespectful.

    That's not even close to what he's saing. He's saying (and I agree) that an unclipped, unprocesed watt is a watt. Be it Boss, Pyle, Audison, McIntosh or whatever.

I wait for a killer sale/use added coupon's and I often get said equipment for pennies over what it's selling for used.

    He said

    I just don't get paying so much for an amp. Power is power. Call me cheap, but I'm not going to pay a ton for power
    Which means saying a 2000w boss amp is the same as a 2000w quality amp except the quality amp is more reliable and easier to use. Like I said, just cause it says it does 2000w watt doesn't mean it's going to do that. So you may go cheap and be mad when your 3000w system is nowhere near as loud as somebodys 1500w system because they bought a GOOD amp and you decided to be a cheapo and buy a cheap POS.
