    Thanks, we'll see how things play out.
    In the meantime the guy in the Valley selling the CRS's reached out to me. He informed me that he would take 200 for them.

    What to do. :#

    You go and get them.

    North Hollywood? You could go pick up the speakers and then head to The Troubadour to see The Mentors play. B)

    That huge crack in the veneer was too much for me to overcome. :(

    The almost perfectly describes a date I had back in the 80s.
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,857
    That's called shrinkage...

    Go ahead, run with it.

    Are you referring to that speaker or my date back in the 80s? :p
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,857
    Dare I say, both? :#

    I suspect the vinyl veneer was made with calendared material instead of cast. Cast wouldn't shrink like that, maybe 1-2% at most, especially given the environment it was intended for. Calendared, on the other hand, can reduce well beyond 25% given enough time and heat.

  • la2vegasla2vegas Posts: 4,281
    Ok, would any of you guys buy them for 200 bucks?
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,857
    Not when I can get them for half that.
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 9,164
    Yea, 150.00.
    But if the rest is all right, maybe 200 then. I'd have to see more. But they are the desired one tweeter model, so...

    That strip on the front can be easily replaced with a real wooden one like some models have.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    My tweeters aren't that color in mine. Mine are all black. But my top and bottom plates are veneer and not black like his. And he's only got a picture of one.

    No need to pull just look for the foam ring around the dome. No foam RDO. foam SL3000.

    More than likely the RDO may not be marked as such. IIRC early versions had no markings.
    Some SL3000 had a blackish dome.

    The SRS 2's on the bay are officially over 400 clams, so I ain't a biddin. They'll probably rest north of 500.
