Maybe I'm not trusting enough but the Trade Me picture doesn't match google images.

Are you talking about the angle of the sides? I hope that's just wide angle distortion in the TM pic. I'll find out soon enough I guess :) Can't find anything about imitaitons or replicas on TM, who would want to imitate a clarion anyway? :)

RMS must only be 200w if it says 420w max. Hardly worth it :lol: Cheap enough though!
1988 KE70 Wagon - Slowly rusting
1990 NA6 MX-5 - because reasons
2018 Ranger - Because workcar
OMG so shiny!

Assuming he has more than 1 of them, grab two of them and chuck one on each coil of a DVC sub, plenty of power for a hundy bucks

Looking on google images, there seem to be a mixture of both 4 and 6 screw pictures...

So, it arrived today. All looks pretty genuine.

Came with mounting screws, line level input adapter, and manual.

Authentic looking Clarion box, clarion sticker on amp with serial number.

The box depicts a 4-screw lid, the actual amp is 6-screw.

RRP in 2008 was $299 US, so it's definitely a bargain :D
