bought these speakers they were 3 k new expected lots of work

 

it turns out had to repair one driver, easy for me, now fully working with ribbon tweeters these sound ultra amazing with so much adulterous bass, bass goes down to 30hz and there huge

 

just need a bit of bodywork done to them :-)  :yes:  :-D    :thumbsup:

I just use my backpack blower to dust the house when my wife is out. Works more thoroughly. From there I need to reset the smoke detectors and open all windows to get the wonderful 2 stroke exhaust fume scent out ;)

I thought I was the only one that did this :lol:
I don't get exhaust fumes inside but it does a great job of getting the stink bugs and cob webs with stuck leaves out of the nooks and crannies.

People thought I was crazy but it really works! I open all windows and sliders to do this. I have the Stihl BR700 so that thing puts out hurricane forces of winds!

 

So back to the topic. I have to admit although I haven't heard the sound quality of those particular speakers, i do have an appreciation of them. I have all built in speakers so not really audiophile quality. They do the job with my 9.1 receiver. Enjoy them. The case looks repairable.

reno I can't post pics because my phone is low on memory .
I got the whole HiFi stack off Craig's list from the original owner including all the manuals and remote controls . everything is pristine.

The amp is 175 watts per channel , my APM 22 can't take 1/8 the power but the sp 97 eat it right up.

My rule with speakers is they have to take what their given power wise , I punish speakers to see what they can do , its all part of my fascination with speakers lol.
