I can only go back 3 years in my archived purchase history in ebay.

As a result I cannot find the auction number. I bought it longer than 3 years ago on ebay as broken.

I got it home and it worked fine but the LED bar didnt work. I hooked up the LED board and it worked but then the amp would cut out.

I threw it on the shelf and never messed with it again. I believe I only paid $350 for the amp.

I knew it was rare but not to the extent of only 100 ever made. It was an easy win, there was only 1 or 2 other bidders and I sniped it at the end....easy pick.

If you had the same email address when you purchased the amp, you should be able to find the notice that ebay sent when they notified you that you won the auction.

I think I was the one who grabbed that one, couldn't believe I was able to snatch it before it sold!

Perry, thanks for all of the info on the Power 1000 models. I created the article on OldSchoolStereo after receiving information from Eric Russell at Rockford Fosgate (and another of his co-workers who assembled the old power series, also named Eric) and also an email direct from Wayne Harris. I'm pretty sure the 1000c's hit the market around 1991, b/c there is a "big amp" test in Oct. 1991 of Car Audio & Electronics w/ the 1000c. I just didn't have it confirmed if the 1000c came first or the 1000 Terminator. I "believe" the 1000 Terminator came after the 1000c as a tribute to Wayne and his creation. Also, from what I've been able to surmise, there is no difference from the 1000c and Terminator except the difference in silk screening. Wayne did mention there were only 100 or so official "Terminator Editions" and he had 10-12 of them himself.

There is a TON of misinformation out there, one reason that drives me to make these videos about the old school amps and gear. The good thing about the website is I can easily update any misinformation, but I try to be extra careful with the videos to ensure my statements are accurate (or updated with annotations).

Here are some of the early RF Power series chrome shrouds by Perfect Interface. Notice the "caboose" on the 1000? It adds a full 6" to the amp's length.

Unfortunately, there is no 1st gen Power 1000 inside that chrome shroud...yet Maybe one day...
