It's crazy how all of these AKA's are nearly identical. They didn't even bother changing the speaker trim.
Must have been the ultimate cash cow :lol:

Does anyone know how much these cost back in the day?

Im thinking probably around 500 US bills. Hmmmm
  

That's what the first post says, $499 in 1990. 
 
I always assumed it was a mid-80's box.


Sorry guys. Totally missed that in the first post. That is some good coin! I thought it came out in 1988 or 1989. Must of been one of the last boxes produced in the 90's with no CD player.

Late 80's early 90's is most likely correct. Dont forget these units probably sold for up to 4 yrs or more new. My Lasonic TRC 975 is dated 93' but I know they came out late 80's as well.

Every variation of the Wheely has wheels.


It took years to compile good pictures of each but so glad I saved them to share.

The sad thing is that so many pics and google results about rare models disappeared after Stereo2go switched hosts   :sad:

1931096_1047945403119_4176_n.jpg?oh=ca78I think I  have a different variation of the Technidyne -TD10000. My counter is on the reverse side.

 

 

 

That is so strange! Good eye, thanks for sharing.

I put Blockbuster knobs on mine and I'm not even mad!
They even have the same beveled edge as tuner knob..:yes:

But the position dot doesn't line up with the correct scale..

I wish my Wheely was the one with the moving sliders. It would be cool if there were LED's in those too  :yes:

I recommend using some Rockmat on the rear and sides of the Wheely.....It will tighten up the bass and eliminate vibration/resonance.  Highly recommended for ANY big black box  :thumbsup:

 

Rockville Rockmat RM3 (2) 12x12" Butyl Rubber Sound Dampening/Deadening Car Kit

 

Starter kit:

Larger kit is good for at least 5-6 radios:
