A beast of an amplifier, able to easily run the most demanding setups. Amp is in excellent/near new condition, setup tuned for SQ. Currently powering two Rockford Fosgates P12 12" subs. Will sell the subs with the AMP for an extra $200. Can show a working demo. Serious buyers only please. Here are the specs.

Ultra-Wide Frequency Bandwidth: 5Hz-45kHz for 4ch, 5Hz-400Hz for Mono (+0,-3dB) Price: $400 (Amp only), $600 (including subs) Location: Chadstone Willing to Post: No Contact: 0411335111 - Harry
They say that inside every man there is a Jew waiting to burst forth and not spend money on things, and no place is this more true than Nissansilvia. For those of you that experience pain at the mere thought of paying $100 for a headunit that is used as a glorified volume dial for your phone, time to cut out the middle-man and just install a volume dial instead. Difficulty = 3 Where 0 is listing your car for sale, and 10 is resisting temptation to straight-swap for a VN Commodore. Time Required = 0.5 - 3 hours Wiring the potentiometer is easy, but installation time varies depending on where and how you mount it. In my case, it took quite a long time to get everything aligned properly in the cigarette lighter hole, due to size of my dial and the tight clearances. Disclaimer Do not stab yourself in the face with the soldering iron. Tools Required Razor knife Soldering iron Side cutters Wire strippers Screw driver Drill + various drill bits 5m Dual RCA to Stereo lead Various small bolts and nuts Thin heatshrink tubing Flux-cored solder Electrical tape 25k ohm Double-gang Logarithmic Potentiometer Dial to suit potentiometer (mine came from JayCar and was covered in numbers) Angle grinder Metal file Galvanised steel 90 degree bracket Bench Vice Various steel mallets Usage Being a certified boss Changing volume without touching your phone. Or dong. Process Step 1. Cut the RCA cable about 1m from the stereo plug, or at a point the gives you sufficient length to meet your routing path Step 2. Take the potentiometer and identify the pins. Step 3. Strip the shielding from the wires and solder the input lines (the wire with the stereo plug) to the pins. It doesn't matter which bank of pins are nominated Left or Right. Step 4. Solder the output lines (the wire with the RCA plugs) to the pins. Put Right and Left on the same bank of pins as the Right/Left input. Step 5. Twist together the two Left cable shield wires and the two right cable shield wires , then solder to the third pins. Take note that you should leave the ends near the exposed wire unsoldered and untwisted for heat dissipation at low volume levels. Step 6. Confirm that the cable works by plugging it into your phone and a home amplifier. Step 7. Unsolder the Output lines, slip on some heatshrink tubing, resolder, cover with heatshrink and apply heat. Step 8. Wrap the wires of each bank of pins with electrical tape, then tape up all the wiring for protection. Step 9. Disassemble the S15 radio bezel button mount, and cut the back off with an angle grinder. Step 10. Bend the 90 degree bracket into a square-edged U shape that tightly slips over the button mount. Step 11. Cut the U bracket to fit. Step 12. Position the bracket on the button mount, mark the center of the cigarette lighter hole, then drill two holes to insert the thread of the potentiometer and location pin. I aligned mine such that the wires were pointing to the passenger's side, parallel to the ground. Step 13. Drill two holes on one side or the bracket, one hole on the other (short side), then bolt the potentiometer in place. Step 14. Install the button mount in the bezel, slide the bracket over the back, attach the dial/button, then align everything until you're happy with the location and it doesn't scrape anything. Step 15. Drill holes in the plastic on the long side of the bracket (top side), then bolt in place. Check the alignment and adjust as needed, then drill a hole and bolt the other side in. You have to use small nuts and bolts for this. Step 16. Install the button, test it works as desired, and install in car.
