    ^^ 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.

    Re: Vintage Hifonics 12" subs

    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

    Re: Vintage Hifonics 12" subs

    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.

    Re: Vintage Hifonics 12" subs

    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
