    I don't know about the price, but the photos on CL make it look like they were left on the side of the road!

    For $275 a pair you can't go wrong, you could always flip em if you don't care for them.

    These will sell for $600 easily... I sold my model 2s for that much, and these are worth more.

    good sounding speaker needs warm equipment to make them sound right go get them if you dont like them you can still sell them for more than that.

    If they're in good shape, they're worth 450-500 around here. Go git 'em.

    They are missing the bases & at least one PR is dented. The pics aren't very close but they don't look to be beat-up. Can flip them easily & turn a profit if you don't like them.

    Had a chance to listen yet? How do you like them? Though they are efficient, do not try to power them with a low buck receiver. From your other posts, it seems like you should have a pretty vast list of amps to choose from. A tube amp or a quality SS amp with a tube buffer or tube pre to take the edge off would be ideal.

    They are great speakers, and are what got me into horns. I think they are just awesome for the size, but you do need to pick amplification properly. Post a picture and what amp are you thinking?
