I am looking for a Phoenix gold zx950 for sale to complete a project I already started. I have one currently that suffered some serious water damage and am having a very hard time finding a replacement.

950s funny enough while not being a LE amp are more rare then the reactor they are made after.

It’ll take you forever to find a 950. You are better off replacing the 450 and 500 boards inside your amp.

Can you post photos of your current ZX950? I am curious how bad it really is.
Nearly any amp can be repaired, it is all a matter of time, effort, and money.

as both of these guys said I would replace the amps internally probably first. If your not going to let me know I might be interested in rebuilding it after I finish the ms1000 that is almost done.

I would like to have it refurbished/rebuilt if I could, I have been trying to find a reputable company that can do it but can’t. I bought it on eBay for $500 in mint condition, I was hoping to find another one in good condition. I tried uploading some pics but it was telling me the file is too big, if someone can tell me how to I will.

Which ever amp is bad pick up either a ZX 450 or 500 and have them recapped and just replace the boards. As for the case it can be repowder coated but the graphics will be gone unless you put Vinyl on it. I have actually had to do the same thing to a Reactor. One of the boards had about a 1/4 of it burned off. Doing the 950 would not be hard really except for the graphics? If you want more into shoot me a pm and I will help you out as much as I can.

like I said the 950s are funny that they are not officially a limited edition amp but were produced in smaller numbers then the reactor just because of the size of them. I got to install one and I was just thankful it was going in the back of a expedition that didn't care if we used the whole back end. They just do not come up for sale often. Post some pics of yours.

Just right click on the pictures, and choose edit. Then in MS Paint (should open if you choose edit), you can scale them to a smaller size. 1024x768 would be plenty.

Our phorum said it was too big or the photo hosting site? It should not matter to our site what size it is if another site hosts it, and I do not know of a hosting site that limits the pic size.

I would love to use a reactor but it’s too big. The 950 barely fits. The system I’m building is running 4 ScanSpeak D3004 (bridged) @ 2ohms per, 2 morel 4” MW114S @ 8 ohms per, and 2 7” seas h1224 @4 ohms per.
The 950 was the best ano that I could come up with that has enough power to run all the speakers and have great sound quality too. I would obviously have the 7 inch woofers running on the 500 side. I’m going to use a miniDSP For processing.

fun fact, a zx950 is the exact same amp inside the fancy shell.

http://www.phoenixgoldregistry.com/zx950.html
http://www.phoenixgoldregistry.com/reactor.html
They are both a zx450 and a zx500 inside, exact same amp.

everything inside can be repaired or replaced. The cosmetics or graphics on the top is the only thing that would really be a problem to do. How much well now that I do not know. A pic inside would probably give a better idea of that bottom is worth saving or if it needs to be replaced as well as the boards. The ZxTI amps were known for rust but because of how they coated them these earlier models were not known for rust so seeing as much as we do is a sign of a bigger problem.
