Needing Help On pricing and older system.

I have asked a few friends, turned to google, and have no idea on what the system I have is worth, if anything at all. A friend told me to come to this website and see if I could get a decent response from people with knowledge. I would greatly appreciate it!


I have 2 Phoenix Gold amps a 2300xs and a 2500xs as well as two 8"'s and 2 10"s in a box.

Are they worth much if anything? Thank you all for your time

The amps maybe $75-100 and $100-125 respectively.

These days no one runs different size subs in a common airspace.....the 8"s make good midbass drivers at maybe $40 or 50 for the pair and the subs will need a new enclosure so roughly the same $$.

My $0.02 worth....

HTH

Was that a common thing back in the day? Thought it was a never to be done kind of thing.

The science of car audio has advanced a lot in the last 20 years or so....back then the more drivers you had the louder you were the cooler your system.....

Once people started to use more sophisticated test equipment issues like frequency response interference caused by different drivers playing the same range of frequencies became more obvious.....the practice of stuffing all those drivers into a box just because they fit died out gradually after that.....

I knew a guy who took out the back seat in a VW Beatle and built a box in there with 2 12s and 24 6X9s.....a bunch of Realistic power amps, a fire hazard for power distribution and headlights that bounced like a disco.....

Loudest thing in the area but in hindsight the SQ seems to have been lacking somewhat......
