Advent 2002 and The Ones that Got Away
Cleaning out stuff and dropping off donations, I couldn't help but going in to the local GW. Some folks must have gotten new toys for Christmas 'cause there were a bunch of speakers there.
There was a pair of Cerwin Vega D-3 that were tempting. The cabinets were dirty but in good condition as were the grills. But I knew I'd catch HE-double-toothpick if I brought them home. A quick check on the iPhone and I saw that they are great for ear-splitting rocking out but not much on SQ. Not what I'm looking for.
A couple days later I stopped in again. There in front were a pair of Infinity RS-3 towers for $30. Nice! I knew I was in trouble. I tried to be good an checked to see what else they had. A nice little pair of Advents which would be much easier to sneak into the house. But those Infinities were calling. I rushed back to them only to find a gentleman loading them into his cart. I kicked myself and thanked him for keeping me out of trouble and went back and grabbed the Advents.
So I pick up a nice pair of Advent 2002 with good cabinets and grills. They do need re-foaming, which is something I always wanted to try. These look like excellent candidates for $8.
