So I don't own these anymore but I've always thought it was a cool picture.

An x-station and the two Offroads together in all their glory lol.

PS. Now that I'm old and nostalgic I want them back. Their is a reward for their safe return. PM me if you know their whereabouts.

I believe the x-station and at least one of the off roads is with itchi but I would be surprised if it were not both. One crazy civic on here has been BEGGIN itchi to sell the x-station to use in his crazy civic install but I don't think itchi has ever considered letting it go.

Hopefully he has them both. When I sold them they went as a pair to a buyer but I was told one of the power terminals was damaged during shipping. I'm guessing by this point they have been repaired and are kicking ass again.

Originally the fans and LEDs didn't work and I cracked them open to install LEDs and get the fans working. They were huge beasts that barely fit in my trunk but once they were working they had gobs of power.

The x-station was the coolest thing ever. I bought it from a guy who used to live in Portland. He told me he had a friend who stole it from PG as a prototype. I kinda suspected he was the one who stole it. I contacted PG about it asking about parts availability and it took quite a while to convince the people on the other end of the phone that I actually had an x-station in my hands and once they believed me they asked for it back and didn't really want to give up any parts haha. I offered to give it back for the same price I paid for it (not cheap) but they weren't interested in paying anything for it.

I kinda wondered if losing their prototype had anything to do with it never reaching production.

Back in the day.....

I now have the 4 Pro 12s and a several sets of Boston Z6s and a set of Boston Pro 6.53s in my home theater providing sound for my 11.1 setup with 180" projector screen. Still working great after many years.

I saw that video with a different link and from what I remember I was able to get close too 900 watts out of each ti600.2 RMS before clipping when using a PG line driver. So around 1800RMS per Offroad.

The second comment on that video from Matt Barnes says he got them from a VP at PG and then sold them to the current owner but I can say with confidence that there were at least two other owners before they go to where they are now. I bought from from a guy in Waterloo, Ontario and then sold them to the mentioned collector in New York.

Also I can say with some pride and some shame that I installed the red butt connectors you can see in the video for the LEDs lol.

there is a facebook group that is a little more active and actually has larry frederick and some of the old pg staff on it. You/we might be able to hear more about the theft story on there if your curious.
