thoughs were not meant for car audio.. i believe they are pro audio drivers for DJ's i remember them from the 90's

pretty cool pieces of audio history from 22-23 years ago!

^^ he's correct, hifonics did sell pro audio for a couple of years. Hence the 8 ohm rating. Don't know what they're worth to be honest. Maybe some hard core hifonics guy would buy them?

Looks like the car audio HF's from the late 80's, early 90's to me. Only remember two flavors of subs pre '92, 4 ohm & 8 ohm. If I still had my vintage 1800w Collossus.... Nice subs, Good luck with sale.

They are in the 90 CA&E Directory and i've been told they are car audio related. 8 ohm was a rating used on many car subs back in the day, that way you could buy 2 and bridge them to a 2 channel amp. Im pretty sure Big D will chime in, he has the CA&E ad from 90' with these subs in it. Thanks Turbo:thumbcool:

Looks like one or both of these would make a helluva HT sub. Slap a big a$$ plate amp on a big ol' box ported tuned to about 20-25 hertz or so and throw in a Blu Ray....

They're just not worth anything since for $300 you could get two new subs that would put those hifi's to shame. And with all the poor kiddies on here....yah...good luck with sale.

These are rare collectors items hence the price. Not subs people will use most likely. I wasn't sure what to price em at due to not having anything to base it off, thanks

Those look very similar to my pair of Alpine 6015's , except my alpines have foam surrounds and are 4 ohms each. Also Richard Clark used a very similar (Speakerworks) pr., made by USD Audio in the mid 80's ish. Very cool hifonics vintage! Ofcourse I'm dating myself here.

radwilsons5803

Yeah, they definitely remind me alot of both of those. I prefer the USD as ive owned some but have not had any Alpines. Im sure they sound just as amazing though

I think these are really cool op. I don't see any reason why a couple of cool old drivers with four inch voice coils can't go for a hundred each. I think they would be awesome for some one that's building a pair of three-way house cabinets. Then put em on an old marantz amp.... Bet they would rock. GLWS!

I agree and thank you! Apparently only the old Hifonics amps are collectible cause there's not much interest in these it seems
