All I've ever found at estate sales is junk. Damn, I wish I had the time to scavenge more often. Excellent find. Wonder how these sound.

Thanks Guy's, I was painting the garage and my mom comes back and said she had 2 speakers and a big black thing in her van for me . at first I kinda blew her off but she kept insisting I look at them so I did and my mouth fell open when is saw the speakers, I ignore the black receiver all together but she bought it as a set for $10.00 .

Thank you, my mom knows what to look for ,she goes to sales every week its her hobby, she knows to look for boomboxes and she knows what a ghetto blaster looks like. She never pays a lot because she takes pride in how cheap she can get things for lol.

I took one speaker apart just to look and I was shocked by the quality of the drivers, the tweeters are metal horns with acoustic lenses ,the mids are 8inch with larger than average size magnets, the woofer is 15 inch with a stamped steel frame but they have gigantic in my opinion oversized magnets almost identical to a cerwin Vega.the peak power rating is 300 watts each and they sound fantastic.

These coupled with my APM 22s and my pioneer sx 790 is better than Viagra.
