    Default Carver Amazings / Carver Silver 9t's....

    I have a chance to bag some gear that I've wanted, but, to do so: I need money!

    For your consideration:

    Carver Amazing Loudspeaker (original version)

    I've expounded on these ad naseum and I believe them to be one of the finest loudspeakers that you can find. I'm the second owner, essentially only user of these. Operationally flawless. These are in excellent shape, one or two miniscule nicks which are all but invisible. Grill cloths are in excellent condition. Badges are both present. I had the grilles off a few weeks ago, woofer surrounds are pristine. The only *issue* is that when I got them I had to redrill the holes that attach the bases. This is common enough with these speakers and in no way affects appearance or performance. These are my children and have been treated as such. I have the original boxes and manual. You are highly encouraged to audition them before you buy them in my home. As a last resort, I'd be willing to meet or deliver a *reasonable* distance. I am located in Charleston SC.

    Price: 1,000 dollars. You MIGHT be able to find a cheaper pair but I doubt you will find a lower mileage pair.


    Carver Silver 9t amplifiers - [B]SOLD[/B]

    575 wpc into 8 ohms. 900 wpc into 4. I have the acryillic bases and owner's manual. I don't believe I have the original boxes. Operationally flawless. Couple of minor scratches on the top of the amps but nothing terribly noticable. One of the meter lamps is out at this time. I had planned to replace them with blue lamps but just haven't gotten around to it.



    IF someone is interested in both items, we can talk. I'd prefer to sell them together but usually systems don't tend to sell well.

    Pictures of both items can be found [URL=http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showcase/view.php?userid=60693]HERE[/URL]

    If you want additional info, lemme know.

    Thanks for looking!

    Troy

    Did carver make a cheaper version of that speaker? Our local dealer has two speakers for sale that look identical to those.
