With much regret... Polk LSi25s, Ebony finish

For sale is my beloved pair of Polk LSi25s. They are in fair physical condition, with scratches on the top, but the gloss black veneer is almost flawless on the sides, front, and back. The wood side panels are scratched and nicked in places although not noticeable unless up close, and in one area the wood veneer began to peel, although I successfully used wood glue to glue it all back down, and it is not hard to notice from more than a foot away. all the drivers are flawless, the crossovers are perfect, and one of the subwoofer amplifiers works perfectly. the other blows its fuse in a matter of seconds. I was never able to figure out what was wrong with it, but if I find something, I will repair it.
I'd give them a 6/10 physical condition, 8.5/10 functional because of the failed subwoofer amplifier.
With much sadness, $400 firm, as I will need to get that money out of these. local pickup only.
I will post pics later, and I will do some form of a "family photo" like CH46E did with all of my gear.

sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Oh yes! 45ish minutes out of Orlando.
    I am about to take pics, and later I will have nicer pics from my mom's Canon EOS 5D MK II, but her camera took them as a raw file so she needs to help me edit them on her mac. I could probably figure out how to edit them if she didn't have a Mac :wink:

    For some reason my tablet is unwilling to take pictures right now, and I don’t have another device I can use, so I will come back later once I’ve got it all figured out.

    Sorry that it took so long to get the pics taken, but I had to get them from behind the Missions, which meant I had to move everything else so it wouldn’t be easier.

    How are mine prettier? You have the cherry finish, right?
    I don't think they will sell here any faster than yours, but I thought that I should post it for you guys here in case any of y'all want 'em. :)

    Nope. Ebony. They've got a few more cosmetic issues.

    Oh. If it makes you feel any better, the veneer was hanging off of the side panels when I got them, and only my "skills" (lol really just a bottle of wood glue and a toothpick) saved it, to the point of being unable to actually see the damage until you are about 1-2 feet away. In other words, They looked no where near as nice as yours when I got them!

    Orlando traffic stinks. At least, it stinks until you’ve been to Jacksonville! :# Then again though, I don’t actually live in Orlando.
    Are you sure that you want to thin the herd? One more cant hurt, right? :tongue:
