SVS PC12-Ultra - Fair Price (used. 5yrs old)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What is a fair price for an older SVS PC-12? There's one on Craigslist in my area for $675. I'd like to offer less, but don't want to be stingy.

It is five years old.

Thoughts?

Personally I think that is a bit high. The sub is 5 years old, the new Ultras now have a Sledge 1000W DSP AMP, the PC 12 Plus, which I have has an 800W DSP AMP. There have also been upgrades to the drivers on both the Ultra and Plus.

SVS makes an excellent sub and I am sure this one is still a very capable sub, but I think the seller is asking and expecting top dollar.

Would I consider it, yes, but I would want to hear it and I would want it at a more reasonable price. You can get a new PC12 NSD which I am sure would perform as good or perhaps better for $75.00 more...just food for thought.

Personally I'd offer half of what it sold for originally. As good as SVS is, my sub's amp went out at the 5 year mark.

Words of wisdom.

I actually had 1 of these exact same subs that I sold on ebay about 18 months ago or so. Mine was manufactured in 2003. It sold for $800.00 plus $100.00 for shipping. I was surprised I got that much for it. It's a good sub, but it is old and there's comparable performing subs that are brand new that can be had, as there is just more ID's out now making great stuff. I'd try and get it for less if you were really interested.

So'd you get the sub or not?
