Have an oppertunity for a pair of carver al lll's cosmeticly fine, have listened to them however the gear they were hooked up to was way under powered (so i hear) for them. Would be played thru my "main rig" listed below ( amp has been benched at over 400w at 4ohms plenty of currant. have heard and read about ribon issues being a bitch if not right. They seemed ok but without the right power who knows. So are yhey as good as some have said or ..... The cost is really not an issue but if they need to be rebuilt later ....hmmmmmmmmmmm. In knotts over thia one and could really use some input. Thanks in advance.
