My local pawn shop is selling 3 12inch audiobahn subwoofers inside a sealed audiobahn box with all 3 chrome grill fronts on all 3 woofers.They are 500rms each and he wants $300. Is it worth it?

AND

He is selling 2 15inch KICKER CVR inside the sealed box for $300.

Is any of this worth it.If so which to get?

You can get the 15" off ebay for about 200 and a box for about the same, and the warranty probably the same, and they are new.

Ty, that 15" CVR shouldn't be more than $140 on E-Bay. Two Cerwin Vega Vmax 12's go for about $180 a pair (new model) and they are louder and have much more SQ. So whoever is selling a 15" CVR for $200 on E-Bay is ripping people off.

Also, the way your post reads Tony, is that you can get 3 12" Audiobahns in a sealed box, OR 2 15" CVR's in the same sealed box?!?!?!?

I don't think it wise to put only two subs in a triple enclosure, and I think it near impossible to put 2 15's in a triple 12" enclosure as an addition...Explain sir!

Alex, I checked out that store, and they're selling old model Cerwin Vega subs at rediculous prices...That site is not cheap...

Especially the CV IT series, being discontinued and all...they shouldn't jack up the prices on really old model gear like that just because they were dumb enough to buy that old stuff in bulk like 4 years after it came out.

I am talking about they both have their own enclosure.I have chosen to get the audiobahns but, I need an AMP,EQ,and Head Unit.ALso the audiobahns they only have the 1 pair of terminals on the back of the box.They are the lug lock terminals.Does that mean all three are wired 2gether?

Yes, they are all three wired together. However, this is where impedance issues come in, and the fact that whoever did the wiring, hopefully, knew what they were doing.

Before buying, ask what the total impedance of all three subs that are wired together are. Hopefully it's between 2-3 ohms.

Head Units...People argue about them all the time lol. But I'd have to say for your application, Alpine, Kenwood, or Pioneer Premier series would do you well.

And an EQ...well I see it this way, the more bands the greater the amount of control you have over individual frequencies. I, however, don't suggest going out and buying a 20 Band Audiobahn EQ. If you can't afford a higher end EQ with more bands, get the higher end EQ with less bands, or save up.

I've run my share of home EQ's (not much different than car EQ's minus subwoofer controls and such), and the higher end ones generally provide a nicer pitch bending ability IMO.

anything that is Audiobahn an around 500rms is either 4 ohms DVC or 4 ohms SVC ..if all three are wired together an they are 4 ohms DVC you can only get either a O.67 ohm load or a 2.67 ohm load, an if all three are 4 ohms SVC you can only get a 1.34 ohm load

The audiobahn box with the 3 12inch woofers is the actual box itself.This is not a box that someone just put the woofers in.It came like this from the factory it self.The box has big audiobahn stickers on it and it is like a leather box...not carpet

its not a good Deal Bones because u can pick those subs up all over the place for about 50 bucks each brand new with warranty..unless you think the pretty leather box an cool chrome Grills are worth the Extra 150, but im not a person that cares too much about pretty or cool so i say get much better subs for 150 each an at most audio places if you buy two subs for 150 each they will throw in a nice plain sealed or vented box an most the time you can even talk them into droppin the taxes

Thanx for that advice cadillacDb.That pawnshop is always trying to jip people by giving them less for their product and then they will sell it for more.I want him to bring the box down to atleast $250.I really don't want to order online because of the high S&H but, if you still got them 2000rms when I get ready to purchase woofers I will be more than glad to get those off your hands for $380.

Orderin Online isnt all that bad but Ebay usually Doesnt offer good Warranty's an even if they do offer a warranty through them who knows if that seller will actually be in Business longer then a month or two.. im not saying ebay is all bad or anything because ive bought lots of stuff off ebay just never anything that has to do with Car Audio, mainly just a shirt here an there or a PS2 game or a Gamecube Game or somthing along those lines..but a good Store that offers a Warranty through them an also gives free shippin on any orders over 99 bucks is http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductList.aspx?CategoryID=19
