I have the following items for sale. I will sell all items individually, although, I would really like to sell the head unit and CD changer together. I'll offer a nice discount to anyone who takes both (-$100). And an even nicer discount to anyone who wants the whole package. ;)

Please note that the paid price is what I paid in 2001 and not the current market price. I feel I have offered realistic prices, but if you do find that a price is way out of line, feel free to inform me (with some proof) privately, and I will adjust the price accordingly for you (if you are actually interested in the item).

I just want to say i have JL Audio's but the W0's (lower end) , and they are fuckin ace! and the w3's sound even better.

Pheonix gold XS series are nice. If i am not mistaken , they are a competition line.

good deals in here folks!

The W3's are higher end than the W0's. They handle almost 3x the power.

Yes, the XS series is competition level, hence the ridiculously low IASCA rating that I included. In fact all the power numbers listed and extremely conservative.

BTW, I forgot to mention that if you buy the entire lot, I will throw in all the wiring and fuses, etc. Total cost was about $300 or so, I believe.

Cheers ... Ian :)

I noticed a slight error in the specs for this item. The updated line has been highlighted.

I have a feeling that I will have a hard time selling all this stuff, since the average person doesn't care to even spend $375 on a new head unit, let alone a used one.

Those who follow car audio (and audio in general) can tell you that you can't judge sound quality by simply comparing numbers. Do a search for any of the items and I guarantee that there will be few (if any) negative reviews.

Cheers ... Ian :)

Sorry Ian, but I think you gotta lower the prices.

Used electronics, especially car audio, rarely, if ever, garner more than 30% of the original purchase price on the used market...at least that's what I've found in my struggles to sell the same kind of stuff....

The guy that did the uninstall said that if he I had all the original the boxes, you wouldn't be able to tell the items from new ones. Honestly, these items have never been abused and are 100% scratch free.

Also, everyone knows that these are all starting price points, and I expect to go down a bit. Having said that, the subwoofer, component speakers, and the head unit have all been sold for their original asking price. Maybe I got lucky?

Cheers ... Ian :)

Good equipment....prices are kinda steep.

On a side note, I have a Phoenix Gold M25 that I have been using for 8 years and it still amazes me:)

I've sold most of the items in this thread, but the head unit and CD changer are still available, and I have decided to lower the prices dramatically hoping that someone will grab them just in time for spring. Both items are now at about 1/3 rd of the price that I paid for them new.

CD deck - $250
CD changer - $150

I'd prefer to sell them as a package however.

I also have some good quality wiring too that I might be able to work into the deal if you need that as well.

Cheers ... Ian :)
