    I've received a few PMs on these speakers.

    Let me explain a few things about how I sell things.

    As you've noticed, I like to keep things organized, up front and to make the sell as straight forwards as possible. I offer tons of pictures of the product - details, everything.

    This time I failed to mention I will completely ignore PMs. That is why I have not responded to any emails like that.

    Also, I have the right to selectively sell my items to people I want to have them. For instance, if you joined Club Polk in September of 2005 - no posts - and PM me wanting to buy my speakers...

    So new members and old members alike, don't PM me about my speakers if you want them... post in this thread. If you have no feedback on anything, here, ebay, audiogon... and just joined CP this month - don't expect me to sell you the speakers. I paid my hard earned cash for these speakers and I would much prefer they go to a good home. If I wanted to sell them to a bunch of no bodies, I'd be on EBay currently.

    Sid, I have heard the 8's. How do these compare as far as bass extension is concerned?

    Funny...

    I have never heard the BP8B...

    The BP6B has insane amounts of bass (for music).

    The 8B would be more geared torwards music than HT, since it uses the tweeter from the BP3000 (old TOTL) - it also uses better midbasses.

    The BP6B uses a specially designed polymer midbass (even though DT calls it homopolymer, its not) - that took place of the old 4.5" midbass they used in the older line. They are fairly high excursion and do move alot of air.

    I like them, I wouldnt use them in a music setup personally - they would be perfect for a computer, game, movie rig though - without a doubt.

    They, in a small room are very powerful - bass drum kicks kick you and everything. Great extention.

    I'm new to this forum and to the world of quality speakers. From my novice research, I like definitive's bi-polar design and the BP-6 would probably be sufficient for my set up (although my brother tells me to go for the BP-10's, which he has).

    Man. You're making this so hard to resist. I'm seriously trying to think of somewhere to put them. If I could come up with a place (that Mom didn't object to), I'd bag 'em.

    According to Sid, they do quite well for music, too, though gaming and HT is obviously their main arena. There are two DT towers for sale.

    3 or 5?

    There are two (one pair) of speakers for sell. As in, one pair of towers.

    They do pretty good for music... but this particular speaker was designed to pave the way for entry level HT. It can, with time, patience and placement do quite well with music.

    Infact, I will put money that in a small room with the right placement and power can out-perform almost any speaker in HT, ANY speaker. From the RTi8 to the LSi15. Money on it!

    Bipolar loudspeakers ARE HT. ;)

    Eh... some speakers are pickier than others. They sound great in any placement, but like anything in this world - fine tuning is the key.

    Why dont I keep them? I have their much larger brother, and frankly - they are just taking up space in my 2 channel world. (Since I originally used them as surrounds)

    Bipolar speakers make for a very fun music listening experience if you take the time.

    NOT every speaker is a set of SDAs... plop them down in a spot... away from side walls... straight ahead... BAM. I mean THAT is optimal placement for SDAs.

    These... they need toe in, tilting, away from side and back walls - to truly excel.

    I'm not afraid to dicuss the positives and negatives of these speakers. They excel at what they excel in and thats that. They would make for great HT mains or a small music systems - all depends on the wants and needs and tastes of the buyer. I recomend them. Great lil speakers..

    I didn't even see the above post... ^^^^^^ :p That's ok... I don't like selling to 1st posters that much ;)

    How do you expect to sell entry level HT speakers without wanting to sell to first posters? In my experience, those just entering the market generally haven't hung out in audiophile forums for a long time. Its kind of hard for one to know what the heck he's posting about if he hasn't even entered the market yet.

    I'm just out of school with money for the first time. I'm looking at getting a quality set of entry level speakers. My brother has BP 10s, which sound great. But I generally don't keep the volume up too high because my wife is sensitive to high volumes and bass (headaches), so I thought the BP 6 may make a good speaker. Although my room is not small (15'x24' with a 8' opening to hallway and staircase -- and a 160" screen from my Panasonic AE700 :) ), so now reading your comments I'm not sure that the bp6's are big enough.

    So what is your reason for not wanting to sell to first time posters? Because you don't trust them? Are they not worthy?

    You listed a price for local pickup, but I didn't see where you live. Is it listed somewhere? Again, I'm new, so sorry you have to deal with questions. But I figure I better get posting now, so that I won't be a first time poster anymore.

    North Carolina.

    I'm fairly cautious of first time posters - be it buying or selling. Why? Because there is alot of fraud. So - if you have an Audiogon or Ebay account - any thing like that would be appreciated.

    HOWEVER, I do not mind you sending me a Money Order* - and it being cashed by a bank, verified - once money is in hand - the speakers will be on their way.

    I don't have a thing against 1st posters, its just a matter of knowing something about people that I sell to. Its kind of like on ebay when people with zero feedback bid... you want confirmation.

    As for BP6B vs. Bp10B - does your brother have the original BP10? With the soft domes? If so, you may find the BP6B has better detail than his speakers. But, his will have a better overall presentation, but I doubt you will find benefit in owning the 10B if you cant turn it up loud or dont have the proper amplification. The BP6B offers excellent detail with ALOT of slam.

    Also, if you dont listen to loudly - and can put them 2 feet from the rear wall... positioned correctly (toed in) - and have the rear drivers reflecting off a rear wall, the amount of sound they will produce will be astonishing. Bipolar speakers are more effecient in presentation since they dont lose volume from the rear reflections... - a stronger presentation.

    Also, Shandrea has first dibs - if we are going by the order of post.
