Over the years I had my hands on a couple of Q475.1s, a single Q120.4, a Q275.2 and a Q175.2... I still have one of each and they are all installed in my Trans-Am...

Oh, and the Balanced Line Drivers are real, I own 4 of them. Also used in the above install. Proof:

Pictures of the Q475.1 (up top), Q275.2 (on the right) and the Q120.4 (on the left), this was during the build phase:

photo16.jpg

And in this pic you can see the balanced line inputs to the amps:

photo1.jpg

If you haven't noticed, I made sure the amps were given the honor they deserve in the install. They are raised up and displayed properly for the beasts that they are.

The last amp just couldn't fit anywhere up top, so it is underneath the sub box:

I ended up using the balanced line drivers for everything but the rear-fill amp. I would have prefered to only run standard RCAs for the Q475.1, but with it needing 4 line inputs and with it being the top amp it demanded the balanced line drivers for asthetics. I ended up modifying the cable for the Q475.1 to a y-cable so I could run it with a single balanced line driver at least.

Hmm, just had a thought... Does anyone know if the single line-output from the Q475.1 can be used as a single line-input?

If that were the case I am sure I could even have a single RCA made to match the asthetics and move the last balanced line driver off to the rear-fill amp.

For a layout, the system is broken down as follows:

Q120.4 Ch1+Ch2 - Front Tweeters - Active H701

Q275.2 Ch1+Ch2 - Front Midbass - Active H701

Q120.4 Ch3+Ch4 - Front Center Channel - Active H701 + Passive CDT xover

Q175.2 Ch1+Ch2 - Rear Fill - Active H701 + Passive CDT xover

Q475.1 - Running 2 ohm into subs - Active H701

The rest of the system is:

Alpine IVA-D900 headunit

Alpine HDA-5460 MP3 HDD unit

Alpine RUX-C700 Processor Controller

Alpine PXA-H701 Processor

Alpine NVE-852A Navigation

Alpine SEA-8081 Alarm w/8502 pager

Seas Neo Al Tweeters

CDT Mids

CDT Midbasses

I used to own 4 of Zeds last line, including a couple of Miniliths, a Duece and a Draconia (with both the Duece and Draconia being of the Burr-Brown versions)... Unfortunately, I did not have a vehicle install on the horizon to take advantage of them (even tho I did have a CDA-7949 w/PXA-H600 setup that would have been the perfect source for those in a pure SQ capacity), so I let them go to someone who was putting together a nice setup. I also sold off the CDA-7949/PXA-H600 setup so I wouldn't be tempted to buy more amps until I need them...

Thanks denim but it not quite the entire line. The others im missing yet is the 75.2, 120.2, 275.1, and the 475.1 but these are by far the most rare. Still on the look out though. ehh.gif

I do understand collecting things, but why are you collecting (are you gonna do some all ESX builds in the future or are you just gonna keep them so they can collect dust).

That is hard to say. I suggest looking on ebay to see what they are going for.
