First off, I'm selling because I can't do car audio anymore due to health problems. I purchased this radio from the now closed company, Elemental Designs, in 2009. I am the only owner of this radio, the only one who's ever had possession of it since brand new. It was in a F150 for a year or so, then it was used in an Explorer from 2010 until 2014, when I got too sick to do anything. It sat in my explorer until 2018, until I sold the Explorer and moved. It's been in my closet ever since.

This radio has 4v RCA pre-outs. It's really probably higher than that, people used to say 4.8v iirc. It has a 7 band graphic eq or a 5 band parametric eq. You can use the pre-outs for front and rear speakers + a subwoofer, or you have the option to run a true sound quality 3 way system. There's a switch on the radio body to change this circumstance. Also has adjustable crossovers for all channels, iirc you can do between -6db to-24 db per octave slope. Of course it has time correction on all channels, too!!! It allows you to also turn off the normal speaker outputs when all you use is RCA's, so you don't waist power. That setting is in the radio menu.

Radio is old, still works as it always has. All 4 speakers channels work, as well as all RCA pre-outs. I just tested it, full volume on the RCA's, then about ~80% volume on the regular speaker wires before it got too loud. The metal body is somewhat discolored, 50 shades of grey haha. Just from age, no water or excessive heat or anything. Nothing is broken. The face still lights up normally. The next track/forward button is faded and doesn't make a clicking sound, but is fully functional It's been that way since 2011 or so.

I DO HAVE A FULLY FUNCTIONAL TRIM RING FOR IT. Also comes with the cage, wiring harness, old school wide iPod cable and an old 80gb iPod. My ridiculous bass levels broke the plastic trim on the iPod connector basically as soon as I got it. I used it that way for years with no problems. All wires on the wiring harness have plenty of room to extend or add your vehicles wiring harness to it. I just cut the old Ford wiring harness off, I DID NOT CUT INTO THE RADIO'S WIRING HARNESS AT ALL. The iPod will not operate unless plugged in (old battery), it's been that way since 2011, when I bought it. The iPod's screen has something behind it, but you can still read it. It has like 1100 songs on it and a bass playlist. Older music <2014. The iPod can only be controlled from the radio when plugged into it. I just left it plugged up to my radio so I could slam my 2 18's in the high 140 db's. I do not have the remote for it.

Price is shipped to the lower 48 . I am open to trade for a 1440p or 2k pc monitor. We can do facetime or something if you need to.

This is such an incredible radio. I was I had a use for it. It's only the second radio I've ever owned. Anyways, here it is!

Any chance of the Ipod going by itself the way it is? Not too hard for me to replace the battery and screen on that. Did it to my dads a few years ago.

This 9887 radio, the iPod, and all of the wiring harnesses and what not are both being sold and shipped to: @Coolhand20th

The agreement is for me to get $220.00 via Paypal, and then I ship the radio out to him as soon as I can afterwards. All seems well, both parties want this. So hopefully UPS doesn't rape the radio on it's way across the country. If they don't break it, everything will be fine. That's my only worry.

Anyways, we'll post up in here and make sure everything happens as planned, and we'll post any problems in here to ensure transparency.

I should have like a few hundred positive transactions lol, if everyone on this site who got a box design for me actually left a review, lol. No worries <3

Finally glad to get this 9887 to a good home, feels like I can move on to new things for myself. And can't wait for the rest of @Coolhand20th and what he's doing, but I'll keep it at that 😁, fun times ahead haha.

Mine is in pretty good shape too. The only thing is the next button has worn off it's next symbol and doesn't click well but is 100% functional. Mine is in really good shape, I'm the only owner of it.

Thanks buck! Got all the new accessories sitting here for it, new mic, new remote, new bluetooth adapter, new wiring harness, new ipod adapter harness. Plus when the Ipod shows up I am having the parental unit put in a new battery and screen in the Ipod since he knows how to. Plus the Sundown SIA 3.5K showed up today as well! :D Things are slowly coming together! Can't wait for August when I can finally get everything in there and be done with it!

Front Doors: CDT 6.5" MO-6 2 ohm Midbass or Silverflute 6.5" 4 ohm (CDT will be here Monday, so will have two really good choices to pick from!)
Front Tweeters: Alpine 1" Tweeters or a set of 1" Seas Tweeters (So two good choices here as well)
Rear Doors: Memphis 5x7" (Run off the head unit only for when others are in vehicle otherwise the internal amp will be off otherwise)
Subwoofers: 2 12" Fi Xv3's w/ Dual 1ohm Spiders in a custom designed box & build by Bucks Box Builder.
4 Channel PPI i520.4 capable of running at 2 ohm pushing the front Midbass & Tweeters
Sundown SIA 3.5K running the Fi Xv3's.
