RTA-15TL Help

Looking for opinions and value for these.

How do these compare to SDAs?

Thanks,
Keith

    Value depends on region...

    As for comparison to SDAs, I'd say they present differently since there is no crosstalk cancellation, but the stage will be clean and tight, thought not as wide or deep. The 15s need ROOM... And plenty of space off the back wall.

    This is based on what I've heard from my SDAs and my 11ts.

    They do not compare.

    I've seen prices start at around 250 for ok condition to around 400 for very good condition. However your location will either make them less or more expensive depending on their availability.
    2.3TL, 3.1TL, SDA 2B, SDA II, 7B, 7C, 7 series 2, 10B, 5JR+, 5JR, 5A, 4.5, 4, RTA 11T X2 pairs, RTA 8T, LSI9, LSI7, RTI A7, RTI A3, CSI A4, CSI A6, F/XI A4, RTI4. That's all for now.

    Thank you all for your responses. Obviously these are not as cherished as the SDA family but are they a good speaker?

    Of note, those are not actual pictures of the pair in question. They are simply pictures pulled from the internet. It bothers me when sellers fail to disclose this. :#
