Kinda nice having all that stuff, look at it and think that i will find use for it one day but reality is that i just keep adding stuff to my "closet" lol, time to get rid of some.

Some items are used, some are brand spanking new, never installed.
All items are 100% functional and come in original boxes.
Used items have some blemishes but nothing crazy or out of the ordinary given that they were installed/used.

Prices are "all in" and include paypal and shipping fees except for SR104 subwoofers. See below.
I am in Staten Island, NY and local pick up is def welcomed.

Group shot:

    2x POLK SR104 SVC - used - $250 picked up or $250 + shipping

    These subs are 30lbs each so shipping will not be cheap here. At least $50 for a pair i'd assume but i need to check on that. Local pick up is the best deal here as shipping will greatly increase total cost.

    10" subwoofer with single 4-ohm voice coil
    ABS plastic cone
    butyl rubber surround
    cast aluminum frame
    power range: 100-700 watts RMS
    peak power handling: 1,400 watts
    frequency response: 25-200 Hz
    sensitivity: 84 dB
    top-mount depth: 7-1/8"
    sealed box volume: 1.0 cubic feet

    Polk Audio designed their Signature Reference Series subwoofers to deliver superior performance ? you'll hear rich, warm lows, distortion-free clarity, and uncompromising accuracy. Polk packs plenty of advanced engineering into a sturdy, handsome package, so you'll get the impact you want from your system.

    The SR104 10" subwoofer features a cast aluminum basket that offers supreme rigidity while virtually eliminating resonances. A sophisticated venting system keeps the sub's inner workings cool and dissipates heat from the voice coils.

    The ABS plastic cone provides lightweight resilience and responsiveness, and its inverted arch shape minimizes the flexing which impedes clean bass output. A soft butyl rubber surround gives the cone plenty of room for excursion, while maintaining its shape over time.

    The speakers are outstanding and the DB's compare in no way. If you like your LSi's, you will love the SR's.

    POLK / MOMO Carbon C300.2 - brand new - $200

    Brand spanking new, only taken out of plastic to be drooled over and then to take these pics. Never seen power, never installed, comes with all paperwork/sticker/manual/wattage caertificate......

    As you can see (and as every polk/momo amp) this amp does more then rated.


    ?150 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    ?220 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms
    ?550 watts RMS x 1 bridged output at 4 ohms
    ?stereo or bridged mono output
    ?4-ohm stable in bridged mode
    ?Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
    ?Maximum Dynamic Headroom (MDH) power supply
    ?requires 4-gauge power and ground leads ? wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
    ?variable high- and low-pass crossovers, 50-250 Hz, 18 dB/octave
    ?subsonic filter at 15 Hz, 24 dB/octave (only operates with low-pass filter activated)
    ?6-way Smart System Protection circuitry guards against power and ground reversal, overheating and shorts, current overdraw, and low impedance
    ?Pre-EQ switch optimizes the crossover and bass level especially for use with Polk/MOMO full-range speakers and subwoofers
    ?RCA inputs accept both speaker- and preamp-level input (To use the inputs as speaker-level, you must attach RCA connectors to your speaker wire.)
    ?preamp outputs
    ?optional remote subwoofer level control
    ?dimensions: 13-3/8"W x 2-9/16"H x 9-3/4"D

    If you're building an all-Polk system, check out this exclusive feature; the C300.2 features a Pre-EQ switch, which optimizes the crossover and bass level especially for use with Polk/MOMO full-range speakers and subwoofers!

    Yeah, I keep thinking they are my next step in my car. I just got a 2 channel amp that is 200 wpc @ 2 ohm so I have more than enough power for these guys..... I could even run 2 sets and still be fine.....

    and since its all wired, they would just need to switch the crossovers and reinstall the speakers.....

    I hate seeing these For Sale because it makes me want to buy buy buy...

    Hell makes me wonder how the SR subs compare to my Treo TE.... I could be all Polk + Sundown hmmmmm

    ARC Audio DXE - brand new - $850

    Never even taken out of plastic, everything is still sealed.

    In the future all audio products will have the flexibility of a fully Digital Control System with the sweet smooth sound and perfect sound stage of an Analog Device. This was our goal when we set out to build the DXE. We use an advanced digital controller to operate all the features of a sophisticated Analog Crossover. The result is the channel tracking and frequency control of a fully digital crossover without the harsh mechanical sound that can accrue. For years home audiophiles have enjoyed Hi End Analog Systems that produce stunning sound stages and smooth harmonics. Now the DXE brings this level of performance to the car with the control of a fully digital crossover.

    This truly Audiophile Crossover is coupled with a 5 Band Parametric Preamp EQ with fully balanced output and a Digital Control

    Max input level: 8 volts RMS

    Input sensitivity: 8V (0dB), 2V (10 dB), 700m(20 dB)

    Max output level: 10 volts RMS

    Input impedance: 47.5 K ohm

    Minimum output impedance: 600 ohms

    Harmonic distortion + noise: <.005

    Frequency response: +/- 0.2dB

    Separation at 1KHz "A" weighted: >78 dB

    Signal to Noise "A" weighted: >108dB

    Current requirements: 1.2 amps

    5 Filters with +/- 15 dB at
    20Hz-50Hz with Q of 2,
    50HZ-100Hz with Q of 1.4,
    100Hz-1KHz with Q of 1.1,
    1KHz-10KHz with Q of 1.1,
    10KHz with Q of 1.1.

    Damn you guys are quick lol. I quess i need to practice my copy/paste technics lol

    Yes, SR will blow db out of the water. Even the fact that it's 5.25'' vs 6.5''.

    Nah, I was aware of that, even as you said despite the size disparity. The problem is always funding.

    Got some stuff that needs to sell to get up the funds.


    Hell I might just sell my rear set of db6501's (or hell both sets) and not replace them until the car is getting ready to sell.....

    I've also got an SR104DVC and it is a stellar sub.

    One good set of comps will beat 2 OK sets. You don't need more than one pair of speakers in a car anyways, so why not sell 'em both :wink:

    Yeah, after doing a quick spec's compare the Treo wins. Mostly thought due to my amp being 1 ohm stable and being able to put out 1400 watts @ 1 ohm, 700 @ 2 ohm (Treo is a 4 ohm DVC wired for 2 ohm load), 360 @ 4 ohm (which is what these particular SR's are).....

    My only though with keeping the other components is that I could wire both sets through my 2 channel amp and get all 4 speakers 100 wpc for each one....

    Will be keeping my eye on this For Sale listing.......

    GLWTS!

    I will back you up on this. Installing SR5250's in my car were by far the biggest upgrade I've done. As mentioned, they are the LSi's of the car, so if you like LSi's, you will love these!

    How long have you been collecting stuff?

    Right after i sold all of these lol.

    http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?t=110136
    How come you never installed the arc?

    I got it because i was sure to run active 3-way front + sub but it never really happened and i'm very happy with my current 2-way front (SR6500) + sub (SR124). I also got a fair deal on used Arc IDX/XEQ combo which is perfection when it comes to 2-way front + sub so i used that and think i'll stick with it.
    Wow that is a nice stash.

    Thank you :)

    would 150 rms make the tweeters be really bright? i have a new set of sr 6500 i just recently perchased after monthes of searching and im in the market for a new/used ampfor them and i already have a pa330 for the back, how would 150 rms sound? whats it do does it make the tweeters more harsh and give the drivers more bass?

    If u're talking about having PA330 and C300.2 powering SR6500 - def go with C300.2 to power up woofers.
    It always makes sense to have more wattage for woofers. Low frequencies require more power to achive punch/kick you expect to hear.

    Congrats on getting SR6500, those are close to impossible to get nowadays. Did you get them from ebay last week? There were 2 listings there.

    Yeah I was the final bid on the bid that ended first got them for 522.85 personally I didn't want to go that far but when I missed the sr5250 for 230sale a while ago I got really upset and decided that. I would get any sr and I looked for months till I found these and decided to not let go

    Im so excited to hear them but I have a big problem......my car front speakers are 5250ok and I bought some adapters for about 16u and turns out there the wrong ones so they don't fit my car and I really want them too:((((((((((( wanted to use the pa330 to power them for a bit till I got a new amp and hu

    If the 6.5's don't fit your car, you might consider someone offering a trade for the 5.25" 5250's. There are some people here (me included) who run 5250's in a car that supports the 6.5" woofers. Just a thought...

    Find out if your car's door skin, door depth AND plastic door trim/grill can accept the size differance (i'd start at your car specific forum) and if all is good simply cut out yout door's skin to make it work with 6.75''.

    My car works with 6.5'' but apparantly not with 6.75'' which is what SR6500 really is.

    Here's size differance of 5250 and 6500

    IMAG0754.jpg

    IMAG0756.jpg

    and here's my door's speaker opening and sr6500 mounting bracket, you can see that openings is a bit less then needed.

    I've marked what i need to cut off with red marker and dremeled it all out
