    FOR SALE HiFonics Generation X Samson - SOLD

    These were the last of the top quality HiFonics amplifiers created by Steve Mantz at ZED Audio. They are incredibly overbuilt! This amplifier was used in conjunction with a Gen X Saturn back sometime ago. It has not been used in at least 15 years or so. It was professionally unistalled from...

    FOR SALE Alpine CDE-HD149BT Brand New in the Box - SOLD

    As the title states a brand new in the box never used Alpine CDE-HD149BT up for grabs. I purchased it years ago for a ranch truck install project that never happened so it remained unused. I would eBay it but with 10% fees and all the nutcases I would prefer to not to. Sorry I did not...

    INPUT please i have orion 250 hcca and 425 hcca ??

    The Orion 250 HCCA is only stable to 1ohm per channel Stereo and only 2 ohms in mono. You can run it to 1 ohm mono but you better have fans to cool it and gobs of amperage and voltage to feed it. You won't see 1KW out of it that is certain.

    Fixing Broken Car Amps

    I never stated that the resistors were all that were wrong with it, I am just passing on the obvious issues as a starting point so simmer down spoon head. I have 30 years experience in car audio so I know a thing or two. I am not worried about cost to repair it, I just want it working again...

    Fixing Broken Car Amps

    I have an Orion XTR-2150 that powers up and plays but us distorted. A quick inspection of the PCB and I spotted a couple (2) burnt diodes. Really want to get it back in action having to use an XTR-250 in it's place for now. Need pics? Let me know if it's something you can fix. Thanks

    Orion Hcca 250 or Hifonics Bxi1606??

    Another vote for that 2nd generation Orion 250 HCCA, as long as you can keep supplying voltage and current it will keep producing more and more power due to the unregulated power supply. They are solidly built quality amps! I was running an XTR-2150 that was in a rollover and smashed on the...

    Orion Xtreme XTR-200 Dual Mono Block SQ Amp

    Bump for one of the best amps ever made for car use. Here is a photo. It is much cleaner this is when it came out of my car.

    Orion HCCA amps, 3 225s and a 250 Digital Reference Series!

    I agree with some of what you said but the increased voltage is meaningless without the necessary amperage to back it up. I know all about Orion having owned them since they first started out and having competed IASCA from '94 - '97 with the XTR Xtreme's. I know what they can do and what they...

    Orion HCCA amps, 3 225s and a 250 Digital Reference Series!

    The 2nd Generation Orion 250 HCCA was only rated to 2 ohm stable mono generating 400W. 2000W where did you come up with that? Is that the Sony Explod method of determining power output? They can be run 1 ohm mono @ 800W but you better fan cool it because it will get hot enough to cook eggs...

    Champagne taste on a beer budget. Bottom line is a true high quality amp is not going to come cheaply.

    FS: Rare Cerwin Vega CS-18A's, a/d/s 200i's & Magnum Pro Components

    Hello Rich, these are the predecessors to the red frame models. Those were the CS-15's which had a soft dome tweeter post mounted in the center of the woofer with a red foam surrounf. They had a bit smaller version that had a cone tweeter but both speakers were the absolute best you could get...

    I am selling some old school speakers in the Classifieds section that some of you may or may not remember. A pair of like new Cerwin Vega CS-18A 6x9 HED's, a pair of a/d/s 200i plates, and a super rare pair of Magnum Professional 6x9 components with surface mountable midrange/tweeter modules...

    FS: Rare Cerwin Vega CS-18A's, a/d/s 200i's & Magnum Pro Components

    Selling the very last of my car audio remnants. These are all old school components. First up a very rare pair of mint like new Cerwin Vega CS-18A 6x9's all cast frame with metal grill, resetable (circuit breaker) horn loaded tweeter and 6lb magnets. These are quite possibly the best 6x9's...

    FS orion xtr 100 (red and blakc marblized, ulrta rare)

    I do have larger pics that I can email, they handle 1000W each (500W per coil) they have finished cast aluminum frames and the magnet structures are about the same size as the diameter of the woofer. Specs can be found on under the "support" then "manuals" tab...

    FS orion xtr 100 (red and blakc marblized, ulrta rare)

    Any interest in a pair of old school Orion NT2 10" DVC subwoofers, dual 4 ohm coils. I think the subs were like $349ea new, never competed with or abused. I have a sealed enclosure and the waffle grills for them. Shipping would normally be cost prohibitive but for short distances via Fedex...

    FS orion xtr 100 (red and blakc marblized, ulrta rare)

    I have seen some tests on the XTR-200/NT-200 where at 1 ohm with 14.4V and a super stout power supply have numbers like 996 watts. I would imagine the XTR-100 would be around 800W but it could not do it consistently without killing the electrical system in your car from the current draw or...

    HiFonics Titan VIII

    That's cheap for a Series VIII Titan even in unknown working condition, it would have probably brought 5 times that on eBay. I just sold my Series VIII amps and did well. Shame I cannot see the photos they must be blocked by my work software.

    FS orion xtr 100 (red and blakc marblized, ulrta rare)

    You don't really need the 1/4" balanced input connectors for it, you can run it with a 5 pin DIN to RCA adapter since the DIN and balanced inputs are hooked in parallel. I have a set that I am not using if someone needs it. Stellar sound quality amps great for running a front sound stage. Ran...

    New HU suggestions

    How about an Alpine CDA-7998 I will be taking mine out of my car tomorrow and was going to sell it on eBay. I have everything that it came with (box, packing, user manual, cage) plus a new sealed in the bag wiring harness, unused original remote, and a backup trim plate. Very minimal wear used...

    Alpie CDA-7894 problem

    Most likely a bad laser pickup, check with and see if it is still available. United Radio charges like an $85 flat rate on Alpine decks if they are serviceable and parts are available.

    Selling Off Entire System

    The distro block I have is all just 4 gauge (1 to 3 (middle and sides) in and 3 fused outs) I believe, sorry. I ran three amplifiers and fed them all with 4 ga power and grounds.

    Ever have anything repaired by United Radio Service?

    What I did was asked the front desk lady to speak directly to a manager, the receptionist doesn't know squat. Ask to speak to someone in charge like the Service manager, trust me the squeeky wheel gets the grease. I raised a big stink and they even sent my item back and did not charge me once...

    Ever have anything repaired by United Radio Service?

    Man that deck has been nothing but a nightmare for you since you bought it. United Radio which is classified as a 5 star Alpine service center sure did not impress me much either. I sent my deck into them for a power cycling problem that they initially could not diagnose and were going to deem...

    You haven't lived until you do the Grand Slam in Alaska! Moose, Caribou, and a Grizzly Bear. Having a grizzly bear charging you while you pump rounds into him from a 300 Weatherby Magnum gets the old heart pumping. While turkey's are wiley and tricky to zero in on they aren't much of a...

    What would cause 0 voltage on preamp outputs?

    Sounds like a dead preamp section if you aren't getting any output from any of the RCA outs. Is the switch on the bottom set to "norm" and not "eq/div"?

    Question about my old headunit, 7977

    Shoot for the older versions then like the PRA-H400 or PXA-H501 they sell in the $100 - $200 range typically.
