Re: When was the PG Ti6 components made (production years)

I also thought these were at least 10+ years old. Seller has 5-6 sets of them. Some used, some "new". Asking about $400/set.

Re: I was given a XMAX 10 for free today! :)

I could probably get hold of the other one if I had something to swap it with, it's almost too bad to split up a pair after 15+ years.. But I have no actual use for it/them at the moment.. I demoed my own car to my buddy who got the other one.. I have 4x Focal Utopia 13WS 5" subs myself. He was...

I was given a XMAX 10 for free today! :)

as topic says :) A friend called me up asking if I had any subs for sale, and the only one I have and don't use now is a Soundstream SPL160. But he wanted something smaller, like a 10". Told him that I could help get him a new one at least. Drove out to his workplace (slow day there, and it is ...

Re: Need (specific) input regarding Cyclone for home use.

I had mine in a 80 liter sealed box when I used it for a home theater subwoofer. Tried most placements including downfiring raised off the floor, but what worked best was firing towards the rear wall, placed about 3-4" out from the wall. Best home theater sub I have ever had, should never have ...

Re: how loud are the cyclones

I had one installed in my NASCA (norwegian branch of IASCA) competition car back in '99. Box was the recommended 3 cubic foot sealed box, powered by the sub channel on a SS Davinci (200 underrated watts at 4ohm, Cyclone was 8 ohm, so maybe 150ish watts powering it?). In the competition format, there...

Re: What can this be worth? assorted high end (?) car audio

Tru amps sold for a cool $3000 to a collector in Europe, I exported them today :) Looking forward to seeing his project car filled with Tru Copper tube amps when finished :)

Think I'll be keeping the rest for my next car, one of the SPL160s is now in my current car. It has never sounded better :D

I tried to change the speaker wires from left to right midbass speaker, and the popping changed sides, so I have ruled out shorts in the speaker wires. No popping when the other M100 channel is connected to the same speakers. Caps have been replaced not too long ago also. I'll have someone a bit mor...
