    Also... Assuming they are in decent shape, problem free, and have the cable, is $1500 a fair price?

    Definitely not TLs with the lousy SL2000s in them.

    Thanks for the input. So not worth pursuing at that price?

    They are definitely 1.2's, NOT TL's. IMO, $1,500 is a steep price since you will almost definitely want to replace all 8 tweeters, with RD0-194's as the SL2000's will make your ears bleed; That will be pricey to do, and make the price more than they are worth, IMO.

    On the other hand you won't find a pair of non-SDA speakers that can do what those will at any price.

    Very true Jesse.

    If the OP wants to shell out money for the new RD0-194's and the $1,500 then go for it.

    I think 1,500 is a bit high. 1,200 is a fair price if they are in good shape.

    They could be 1st gen SRS's and unless I missed it, the OP did not state what type of interconnect socket they have. If it's pin/blade they are 1.2's and can be converted to 1.2TL's. If it's blade/blade, they are 1st generation SRS's and cannot be converted to TL.

    Very good point. I forgot about the SRS's.

    That's all the photos that the seller posted. In the listing the only detail he gave was that they were 1.2s, but judging by the photos, and the rest of the post, I question how much he knows about what he has. I'll start probing for some more info, and pics. Maybe I can talk him down a bit.

    I've know for ages that the SDAs are held if high regard, but I've never had the fortune of hearing any, and they rarely come up for sale in this area. So if I could pick these up for the right price, I'd love to give them a try.

    Those in the know can also count the screws on the XO plate and tell between SRS and 1.2. I however am not that guy.

    I'd say they are SRS's judging by the warning on the back of the speaker about common ground amps only. 1.2's don't have that warning I believe. The interconnect will tell the truth however.

    That made me laugh. How people end up losing things like post nuts, especially on a pair of speakers like this, is beyond me.

    The real question is, how often did he change the air out inside the cabs?
  • pitdogg2pitdogg2 Posts: 7,806

    Scott those can get very brittle, so as you see they are using bare wire. That can when tightened too tight cause the nut to get oval which can with brittle plastic split the nut. One also when using bare wire tighten enough to push the ring on the binding post connector to make good contact with the face of the binding post or it just makes very little contact with the inside surface of the ring.

    Actually that fix should work. And you have to give the guy some credit, who would ever guess the threads would be the same
