that depends how badly you want one? are they quality built, yes, are they worth an arm and a leg, no. some people will pay anything to have one cause they are built by a celebrity, Anthony aka prime minister aka sir mix alot and so on and so on, and they can say i got a prime built. bottom line is they are a good amp built by a celebrity so i think they are worth more based on who built them rather than the build quality, also he doesn't make a whole bunch of em. but they do walk and talk man, after all he doesn't call it a skull cracka for nothing! personally i would pick one up based on both reasons. it would be pretty cool to have a prime built box, i would want a bigger one though...

Skullcracka Amps are built by Prime Minista (also known by his "RAP" name of Sir Mix-a-Lot...Check him out on YouTube)

Built over in sunny California. If you ever get on channel 28 when DX is rolling and hear 4040 in San Francisco, he talks on Skullcracka Amps...although his have a few more pills than what that one on eBay has! :mrgreen:

Very good box's...If I were looking for a 2-pill, I would jump all over this thing...And i would also hurry before someone wakes the eBay Police up!

Also if your interested, I would try and contact the seller and get a email address just in case the ebay Police pulls the ad before it's up.

FYI...Prime Minista did a commercial last year for Burger King...think it's on YouTube too...same guy.

hahaha yea dude same guy. his name is Anthony ray and he lives in WA. he's on the bowl all the time and on pal talk almost every day. he builds giant ac tube boxes now and he even has a live cam showing him building boxes in his shop sometimes. get on paltalk if you wanna talk to him, or the radio of course. here is a pic of one of his ac boxes and one box he had built for him by an rf engineer (the bigger one). i think that's the one he is running now. these shots are at his house.

30 min. left! And still under $200....These usually go for around $250! I can't believe this thing is still under $200 and only 3 bids...Unreal....

And less than 30 min. left on his other Skull, minimum bid is $100, and NO ONE HAS BID! "UNBELIEVABLE!"

Glad you decided to bid! You stole that box dude...I almost bid on the other one, just to re-sell it...No one bid on it. I'm sure it will get reposted tho.

They come with the fan...Depending on when it was built, some have the fan on the inside of the Box like the one you bought, others have it on the outside...There's a guy down in Houston that has a 24 pill Skull, and it has the fans on the outside.

I'll bet if you contact the seller, he will sell you the other one at $100...specially since he took a beating on the one he sold you already. :mrgreen:

i sure dont man, I dont even remember what i did with it...i do remember the thing had some wicked reflected power at the input and just couldnt find a good match. I remember trying to get a hold of Joker to see if it was workable but no dice.
