    I like Big D Wiz. I'm also still into old school stuff. I have a Hifonics Europa VIII, Xtant 404M, Lanzar Opti Drive 100, and 50 laying around. I also have some old headunits and processors. My biggest collection is old school subs. 1st gen Punch Pro 15", a pair of 1st gen Punch Audiophile 10's, a pair of Oz Audio 250L 10's. a pair of 1st gen MTX Blue Thunder, JBL 1000GTi, and some older JL Audio subs.

    Nice! I had a couple 8" gold letter comps back in the day. I damn near purchased some old Kicker freeairs. I really liked the unique sound of them. A buddy had them IB in a Cutlass Supreme.

    Hey, Mike,

    Want an old Pioneer Super Tuner head unit from the early 80's?

    I found one when I was rooting around and cleaning in the garage yesterday. Came out of my brother's 64 Corvette, he had it installed above the rear view mirror in the headliner. I can pull it out of the trash bin. :)

    Since we're doing pics, here is my stash:

    Audiophile 10's, Oz Audio 10's, JL 1000GTi 10" (had to change dustcap), JL 12W-3 D2, Hifonics Europa, Xtant 404M, a couple Kenwood 5 band EQ's with crossover, old Clarion EQ / Crossover, Coustic XM5e (really hard to find since it has a center channel and surround processor

    otherstuff.jpg

    Py Punch Pro 15"...$7 at Goodwill! Last owner blacked out the "Pro" lol. punch15.jpg

    IMG_20161231_155350106.jpg

    My LAnzar Opti Drive amps in the GN. I had them powdercoated black and had custom black vinyl logos to replace the old white ones.
