    Mark my words, Zuul is next. Prepare for the coming of Gozer!

    Edit: I should add (to actually contribute to the thread) that these are an excellent deal (especially if you are local and get the stands).
  • Re: no bass 3.1tl

    Yeah, @pitdogg2's advice is good for recommending @westmassguy. Not sure if that is who you were referring to in your post @ps4ych0, but he is a trusted member of the forum and an excellent modifier of crossover boards.

    Edit: Make sure you have the resistors replaced with a good resistor. Mills or Duelund are most common and are both excellent for different sound qualities/reasons. Mills are warmer and less detailed, and Duelund (cast) are more neutral and very high detail.

    Some 6503's, and one or both 6511's and they would be good to go. The original 6511's are tough to come by. The 6503's are a little easier, but not easy. Of course, it goes without saying, the RD0-198's would be nice too.

    If the person who buys these speakers (and is a 100 post+ forum member) I can help with some (original) 6503's. Unfortunately, I do not have any 6511's that I do not need. The new production 6511's can be bought from Polk, however. I would recommend the original 6511's, personally (yes, I've used both).

    Edit: Mevermind. I just now noticed one of the SW122 passive radiators is also pushed in. You may as well forget these speakers as the chances of finding a SW122 is very very small. I recommend forgetting these speakers (unless you want them for parts).

    Hey headrott, I looked at those speakers again and I see the "dust cover" or whatever it is called on a PR is pushed in. I do not see any other real damage. Can you not use the vacuum cleaner trick or use tape to get that out or are they damaged beyond repair ? Tell me if I am wrong please as I would like to know in the future if I am looking at another set somewhere.

    Sorry man, I just now saw this post. Yes, you may be able to do the vacuum cleaner and/or tape trick to get the dust cove back out. That said, even if the dust cover comes out on the drivers/passive, it's still assuming that there is no other damage to the drivers/passive caused by the pressed in dust covers. That also does not take into account that there may be magnet shift, crossover damage, or a number of other problems to the speakers.

    It is very telling how these speakers were treated by how they visually look. And, based upon the visuals, I would say they were not treated with respect, IMO.

    I would proceed with much caution, and would not purchase these speakers for a high dollar amount, again, in my opinion.
  • Re: MIT Shotgun cables!!!

    On a more cheerful note.

    I have since obtained and used a set of MIT Shotgun S3 Speaker and IC's (XLR, 2 sets). I enjoyed them a lot.

    I then upgraded to Shotgun S1 speaker and IC's (also XLR's). I also bought some bulk cable from Jesse (@F1Nut) to make some IC's for the 1kVa dreadnaught).

    These are by far the best cables I have used. Especially after working with the bulk cable and seeing the design of the cables, I feel confident in saying that (as some claim) they are far more than the "black boxes" that the cabling is attached to. That is in no way diminishing the "black boxes".

    If you have not tried some MIT cables, you should if there is another MIT cable demo going on.
