    I've got a Eclipse EA4000 that's 75x4, but underrated, for sale. Better than that RF, does closer to 100. Its in the WTT thread



    Current set up: 94 Toyota Chaser (1JZ motor) On deck for that car? No HU atm, 3 way active (Vifa Tweets, CDT 04's and 06's) powered by either a Zed Draconia , 2 Obsidian Audio 10's powered by a B2 Audio Zero.3

    Nissan Cube3: Stock Nav HU, need Processor, speakers and subs. Will be using Soundstream DaVinci for power

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.
