Nice stuff from the past. I keep seeing those Rodek RA 250's, and I keep installing them. Such workhorses! It is a shame that they don't build them like that anymore.

Rodek, if still around would be forked up by Maxxonics!

Have fun with your build.

If you're looking for woofers, I have (4) RF Pro Series 8s in *mint* condition, aside from needing new foams..

I have to agree, IMO old school car audio is just like muscle cars of yesterday compared to today's: They are bigger, less efficient and less powerfull then todays equivalent.

Basically people want them for 2 things
1:Nostalgia
2:Because they are chasing after the magical SQ dust that ran out around the mid to late 90's
