    Old School Hitron Equalizer/Amp

    so i just spent talking with my dad about his old school car audio stuff and he was telling me how good the stuff was back then and how now its just crap.
    but also told me that his friend can still get a hold of this stuff and sell em to me. just want to know if anyone knows about this hitron equalizer/amp. it was both in one my dad was telling me or how much its worth?

    They were called 'boosters' back then, not really amps.

    Took the speakers output from the HU and amplified the signal.

    High distortion at the overblown specs they usually listed.

    I see various brands of boosters on ebay, and if I remember correctly (they arent something I usually look at) they dont usually go for more than $20-$40.

    And the upper price is most often something like Alpine.

    There are exceptions, some boosters actually had RCA inputs along with the speaker in's, those can also go in the upper range, but they are rare.

    My first "amp" was a pyramid booster I bought from a JC Whitney catalog. (It had a spectrum analyzer..oo00oo dancing lights!)

    It was rated at a gazillion watts. Probably did 15X4 @ 10% THD.

    Re: Old School Hitron Equalizer/Amp

    i still have a few eq boosters floatin around. there are a few boosters worth having, such as the gm-40 i have with balance level input, but that's more of an amp. pretty much, they are an obsolete function to add a little power, or extra speakers to a bone stock 1-2channel 10w head in now classic "old" cars back in the 70-s and 80's. they still floated around to the early 90's, but more, or less a gimmic. by the late 80's if your aftermarket, or stock head wouldn't put out as much or more than a booster, then you really dug the dumpster for a cheap product. yes, i am a collector, but no, i don't really even consider boosters 99% of the time. now, if it is an eq/line driver, that is a different story. the name isn't much, but what it does has it's use/desirablity, and still used today on mostly old school builds. i have a few of those, too, and watched my audiocontroll three.1 go for a bill in no time at all. made it through 4 different peeps in a week, mostly trades, not cash, but the value of it stayed the same



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Your dad is tripping.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.
