    Those are less than a mile from me. I can go look at them if someone is interested in them.

    That's pretty nice of you to offer that! Go, John. B) :)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?

    @Tony M , and @TNTsTunes you have sharp eyes! I didn't notice the tear in the butyl rubber surround until you said that. Not too worried about the dust caps on the voice coils, as I have pulled out countless ones of those. Going to need a new MW6510.
    @pitdogg2 I agree with you, not a $1100 speaker. $600-700 all day long though if they pass the VC test.
    About 90 minutes from me (on a good day!).

    Update on the 2.3TLs in the LA area. Seller sent me these photos, which appear to show that they are Walnut, but the seller says "I believe the caps are Oak".

    I have also inquired about the torn butyl rubber surrounds.

    Even if the whole world knows
    I don't give a damn about what they think
    I don't have to stand up to your gun
    I don't have to sit down when you say
    Tell me I'm overboard
    The truth is you just want to see me sink
    If there's any room left on that ship
    You don't have to save any room for me
    Cause I've got my own boat (even when it rains)
    I'm doing my own thing (even when it rains)
    And I will stay afloat - even when it rains
    Cause I've got my own boat
    Row, row your boat
    Row, row your boat
    Row your boat

    Another set of Monitor 5's, these are in Victorville. Seems like they are flooding the market at the moment. No affiliation.

    Well after I queried the seller regarding the torn surrounds in the photo in his ebay listing for his 2.3TLs he came to the realization that he uploaded the "wrong" photo (the initial photo was of a 2.3TL that he was looking into buying several years ago on ebay). Seems very strange, but I guess it can happen. He has updated his listing to show the new photos. I had added the front baffle photos here-

    I always wanted to get a pair of RTA-11Ts when they came out, but never did. This pair seems very nice. What is the going price for these in good condition? Seller is asking $200.

    "250GT Lusso" -- great moniker.

    The single most beautiful automobile ever made, as far as I am concerned.

    sorry for the temporary hijack. :p

    Good price.

    In the past 6 months I have purchased two sets of 11t's. One in great condition for 20 bucks. The other was 40 or 50 bucks I believe.

    Again I shall reiterate: You, sir, are much like a Hoover... ;)

    @mhardy6647 I completely agree with you. We have had 2 Lussos over the years. Sadly not right now.
