Hey guys.. I'm moving & local in LA (manhattan beach). Not something I'd ship since I don't have the box, but wondering what you think a UFW-12 Hot Rod subwoofer would go for? Where should I sell it? Here, audiogon, craigslist?

Reason I ask is as many of you know this was a rare add on that was done to only a handful of us that were on the early wait list. The amp was swapped out for a much cleaner/more powerful amp.

It's a awesome sub, just don't have room for it anymore frown.gif WAF as the new place doesn't have a spot for it.

I also have the R-DES unit Onix Rocket Digital Equalization System (R-DES) that I never used..

thanks.. any thoughts would be helpful.

Well, unless you can find someone locally that knows exactly what it is, and really wants it, you arent going to come close to getting what you think you should... Putting it on Audiogon, and factoring shipping cost as part of your cost is going to be the best way to get something closer to real value.

I have no idea what that sub is, or how much it cost, but the above advice is true for all high end audio equipment.

Both are worthless but that doesn't mean someone won't take it off your hands.

Probably a good thing you are selling it...
The Hot Rod version amps for those sub had a high failure rate.

AV123 starting to go down hill real fast when Mark was being investigated for the chartiy scandel.
When it went public it got real bad. Right around when they started upgrading the amps.. Hence why only a couple went out.

For whoever you find to take it off your hands locally, you should give them the info for Motor City Custom Audio. Kevin, aka Sandbagger on the forums, offers a customized amplifier replacement for the UFW-12 Hot Rod driver & cabinet. If you happen to still have the original amplifier (non-HR, that can in fact be modified). I worked with Kevin on the amp modifications and the improvement is significant and it will be available so long as Parts Express keeps selling the SPA1000 amp which is modified for the use. $300-400 should be a very fair price if it is in good cosmetic condition assuming the finish is of value to the purchaser.
