  • For You Car Audio Guys, but if you aren't, this is still cool!

    I worked in Car Audio for a long time before moving over to home audio and had quite a few systems. I always loved building stuff and installing systems (even though I was a salesman/manager) and always was a big fan of the older Phoenix Gold amps. Think MS1000, M100, Frank-Amp-N'Stein, etc.

    Well, Phoenix Went WAY down in around 2003-ish and now is only a sliver of its former self and owned by a different company altogether. So I was trying to find some info on their retired products and came across this site: http://ampguts.realmofexcursion.com/

    It's TONS of amps, their basic specs, and pics of their insides. Take a gander at some of the old Phoenix designs, some very cool looking (and sounding) stuff!

    Enjoy!

      I used to be into car audio.

      In fact last April I sold my 2006 Xterra, and that had some Phoenix Gold equipment in it; albiet the post 2003 "garbage."

      I had a Xenon 200.4 and a Xenon 1200.1 in there.

      I was running Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1 components in the front, with some Infinity Kappa 6x9's in the rear.

      Sub was a 12 inch Eclipse Titanium in a 3.5 cubic foot ported box tuned to 32 HZ.

      It packed some pretty nice everyday listening SPL.

      I sold the Xterra because of the price of gas costing me 500 dollars a month.

      I bought a 2008 Accord V6EX-L.

      Sometimes I think about loading it up with some stuff. :jiggy:

        I still have one of these in my trunk! :D

        Best amp I had and even after all these years it's still driving the pair of 10SD solo baric subs I got with it. :D Although, it is only rated at 360x1 4ohms mine puts out 555 :D.

          Good site. All of the e-salers of car audio amps post pics of their item's internals and refer to that site to prove they are selling authentic product.
