    Found some new old school equipment in my storage unit. Par245 kickr ss56.2 . Good?

    I was going to my air conditioned storage unit and I came across some old school car audio stuff, I want to know if they're still good by today's standards if I can use them and what there worth.

    First up par245
    I was thinking of using it. It's brand new, never been installed









    Next up are a set of new kicker ss56.2





    Of I also found some 6.5" dls iridium woofers

    Wow that's some good stuff. I would definitely use those DLS Mids. the PPI is a bit outdated since it's a 5 band but the 10V outs and clipping indicator are nice, I'd keep it new. The Kicker speakers are pretty cool, but I'd sell them.

    Id use everything in an install if i could.Those 6.5 are pretty rare, and should really sound amazing in a 3way active set up.That eq is all but a great piece no doubt,Id use it! Kickers are and have been some of the best ever made to date in my opinion.Run them with those 6.5 dls in an active 3 way set up, and be envied,lol.Id throw an old school alpine duo-b 3525/3541 at 2ohms on that set up..be clean, and loud as hell!

    ah contrare.....

    I love my par-245...have 2 actually The 5 band is parametic on every band, MOST half din eq's you find are not parametic. The clipping indicator is major help too. MSRP was like 400-500 on these back in the day. Want to say they were made 1996-2000 or 2001. I've used many half din EQ's, hands down my fav.

    Funny enough is I've used the DLS IR1 and IR3, loved them as well. Really cool find many. You can do some cool SQ stuff with the right install on these. Dont sell them, use them!!

    Are you still selling the Par 245? How much are you looking to get?
