    I hope one day you get the chance to purchase a set for 1/2 what I paid and you only have to drive 1 mile to get them. :)B):p
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I only have a permit :disappointed:
    And my parents would kill me. And I couldn’t pay for gas.
    So basically, I would get a ticket, then get in huge trouble, and then be in debt for gas. As much as it would be awesome, I don’t think it’s worth it. :confused:

    They're two nice 15" passive radiators....

    Good point @pitdogg2. Considering they're Frankenpolks, not the most sought after SRS, would cost quite a bit to get back to stock or more to upgrade...those SW-150's are a steal at the current $250 price. I have way more than that invested in all the upgrades for my 1.2tl's.

    Tell me, would you pay $125 for a replacement PR if yours was unrepairable? Guaranteed, you'd make your money back if someone needs it. Potentially, even more. Heck, I'd pay $250 for 1 SW-150 if one of mine was blown. I've made 4 major moves in the past 10 years, so I have 2 saved for a rainy day (one is not perfect).

    I'm not into cannibalizing a perfectly good set of speakers but perhaps someone can get them into the CP family for a rainy day. I'm not near the seller...otherwise I'd buy into this insurance plan :) . Folks, these are unobtainium!

    That could be a stock picture from the store. I would for sure call first and then check pricing. Midwest speaker often uses a stock picture for similar adds, sometimes the speakers in the picture were sold long ago. Using the same picture helps in advertising and search engine results. It keeps things trending. The pictures do change, but often overlap to keep the trends and associations with search engines. They usually have current pics for specific items.

    The pricing can be high as well. That is not to say some deals can't be had, and they do sell the speakers eventually. I think some haggling is involved.

    Updated pic without the grills. Sl2000's, sigh, but overall the 7's look quite nice for 50 clams.

    What model tweeter is this? I've not seen that type before. Looks a bit like a semi horn loaded SL-2500.

    Good to know.
    Just out of interest, would they be replaced by the RD-0194, 0198, or just not be replaced?

    194 but the 194 face plate is more than likely larger.

    The RD-0194 is NOT a direct replacement.
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,837
    If I'm not mistaken, the sl1500 is the series replacement for the tri-force tweet.

    Practically in my back yard.....

    Fortunately I already have a pair already and don't have the budget for a 2nd pair at this time. Would be a nice pair for someone to pick up though and hopefully they are pin/blade speakers and not blade/blade...
