    What do you guys do with old car audio equipment?

    We all love to upgrade and swap gear in and out. The question is, what do you do with the speaks/amps/decks that come out of your car?

    Sell them unless their worth keeping. Some guys probably install their old shit in wives/gf's cars.

    I have a shelf that I load up with all of the old stuff coming out of my car. I dig through the old stuff every now and then to see if there's anything fun to play with.

    That "old pioneer impp in a "bandpass" box in the attic" comes in handy when you need some temporary fill lol

    Re: What do you guys do with old car audio equipment?

    Normally try to sell it, or if it's like a friend's birthday I'll give to them as a present

    If neither of those, then it just ends up laying around the house.

    Re: What do you guys do with old car audio equipment?

    Ill either closet it or sell it to my close friends very heavily discounted.

    For subs if I've abused them, I won't feel comfortable selling them even heavily discounted, so ill just blow em up for fun.
