Recently, Travis posted up a pair of SDA 2.3TLs for sale in Indiana.
In his thread he mentioned that RTA15TLs could be a possible replacement for him and he would entertain trade offers.
Of course, Dan, the great enabler (don't worry bro...I'll get you back! ) mention in the post that I had a pair that had full upgrades done that I had put in storage when my daughter moved in.
After exchanging some messages, Travis and I came to an arrangement and Dan offered up his house as an audition and meet up location.
So, yesterday, the big day arrived. I loaded up my RTA15TLs into my wife's Scion tC (henceforth referred to as the "Truck Car"), popped a cooler full of protein bars and water into the passenger seat and at 5:20am was off.
I was up well before the sun and with a Java Monster (Kona Blend) in my belly and several songs on my wife's iPod, I was off to Dan's place outside of Indianapolis nearly 7 hours away.
The drive was rather uneventful. And I made excellent time.
Arriving at Dan's place, Travis had already arrived and they were inside listening to the 2.3s.
We unloaded the RTA15TLs and after bringing everything into the living room at Dan's place, I took this pic:
The 2.3s are definitely imposing. And you can hide a pair of LSi15s behind one speaker...
We chatted a while and listened to some music but soon, I had to think about loading up and heading home...
The biggest question everyone asks when I show up in my wife's Scion is if I really think that the speakers are going to fit in there.
I have had 4 LSi15s in there...2 RTA15TLs and 2 Klipsch KG3.5s...and my wife has hauled some impressive loads of shelving materials and building supplies...it truly is a little "Truck Car".
Anyway, since I had another 7 hours to return home, Dan helped me load up...
I am always amazed at the amount of stuff that this little car can swallow.
And off again for home.
I saw this guy rise in the morning and on the way home, set again...
Anyway, thanks again to Dan for allowing us to invade his house and to Travis for the great deal.
Now to decide on an amp...
