    Default Polk mystery speaker, B-more CL

    http://baltimore.craigslist.org/ele/285187504.html

    Very enticing, but I'm buying a TT:D so I have no $ for more big speakers.:(

    No affiliation, of course.

    Parkville is awful close to my crib. I could get those tie down straps and moving blankets to you if you got the time.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Scott - I think we have to go somewhere else to get them but I'm not positive. I only have an arrival time and hopefully I will be seen again :)

    Wear some heat-proof gloves, they may be hot. Be sure the owner knows you are taking them. :D

    I'll be packing some heat, don't worry. If I have to pistol whip someone, they are going home with me....perhaps followed by the local news chopper and a couple popo, but nonethless home.

    I checked these out today. They were a pretty rare pair of SDA 1A. Rare because they were a "Signature Edition". If you're familiar with SDA's you'll recall that this model wasn't a SRS in other words.

    These had a small brass plaque, centered, below the tweeters and above the mid-bass drivers....that had Matt Polk's signature engraved on it, as well as "Signature Edition". If my phone camera worked, I would have taken a picture.

    If they were in better shape I may have picked them up but I've had a couple of those already. I was told another guy was REALLY wanting to pick these up and I figured, let the dude get some cool speakers.

    That's officially the last nice thing I will do this year.

    You're a good man, no matter what Russ says. ;)

    That's a very rare pair and exactly what was on the Baltimore CL. The plaque is pretty cool.
