I brought back a boatload of gear that I bought at either the Ramstein AB BX or the Vogelweh PX and the Audio Photo Club at Ramstein. I bought my JBL B-380 subwoofer and BX-63A crossover from the Mainz-Kastel Army post they had a three story building with a large number of the manufacturer's represented and a music store on the bottom floor. I talked them into selling me the floor model B-380 since they did not have one in stock and they threw in a brand new set of grills for it that JBL sent to me directly. I was like a kid in a candy store they also did tent sales in the summer and offered discounted returned gear at the BX's as well.
It took awhile to save up money to get the stuff I wanted. I came back with a DBX CX-3 Preamp, BX-3 Power Amplifier, TX-3 Tuner, DBX 3BX-III Range Expander, DBX 120X Subharmonic Synthesizer/Crossover, Denon DP-62L Turntable, Teac R-999X Cassette Deck, Yamaha CDX-1110U CD Player, Yamaha DSP-1 Sound Field Processor and matching MX-35 amplifier (I bought four a/d/s L200C's to use with it when I got back). The JBL B-380 Subwoofer and BX-63A crossover network, and Klipsch Forte's that made an incredible combo and the BX-3 could be run in 3 channel mode 400W for the sub and 125W for the Forte's. I lived in an apartment off base for most of my stint I did have the system in my dorm room and everyone on the floor had some sort of system and it got competitive.
I started with Heresy's, moved to Cerwin Vega D-8's. Tried Polk Audio SDA-2's, RTA-12C's, and a pair of Bose 601 III's, and finally the Klipsch Forte's. You could order out of the overseas AAFES catalog up to like 30 days after you got back to the states so I bought a DBX 14/10 Computer Equalizer and a 5BX-DS 5 Band Digital Range Controller and had them shipped to me. I used the Heresy's in my 1977 Mercedes 240D with a Nakamichi TD-700 tape deck, Alpine 3015 equalizer and a Carver M240 amplifier it rocked! Really good times in Germany I loved it.
