    I still don't think he's at that "level" yet. On one of the episodes I watched, the lady had bags of vacuum dust/debris that she had saved from the "good times" in her life.

    That is some loony tunes ****. Tony you better not be saving your vacuum bags!

    I thought about calling 2 men and a truck to help me empty it and then re-organize it in a better way. I was supposed to start selling things off this year but haven't done it yet. :(

    You still have time it's only March. Why torment yourself with deadlines, concentrate on the important things in life. Like buying more speakers.

    I'll bet she KNOWS you like POLK speakers just like mine knows I do too.

    My Polk speaker collection doesn't come close to yours. You could almost open a POLK speaker museum. B)

    On a not so related topic I'm supposed to buy some ebony lsi7's and an Lsic for 80 bucks tomorrow morning.
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 8,351
    I like your style! ;) B) The Polk collection GROWS some more. I hope you like them in person.

    I don't have room for them BUT for that price, I'd squeeze them in somewhere for sure! :D

    He's finding them because he's looking for them. That's the way I felt was the reason I found so many deals. I was out there making rounds and after Craigs List was started, and I got my first PC, I was looking in a whole nother way. I saw a pr. of Cerwin Vegas listed tonight near me that needed re-foaming. But they're a 10" model and a lot of guys throughout my selling days wanted 12" woofers in their speakers. So I held off tonight. :s

    Loaded up and on my way. The seller was a real nice guy who was into vintage speakers as well, although none were Polks. He let me have them for 60 bucks for the trio.

    Would this be a project worth considering? Look like 2Bs with no bases or side panels. No reference to interconnect so may be missing.
    Listing has been up awhile so may be an opportunity to pick up for a buck fiddy and have some $$ for repairs and upgrades.
    Room is 18 x 10 with 8 foot ceilings so thinking these might be the best model of SDAs to get my feet wet.
