    Ask him BEFORE you go if he could check to see if all the drivers move freely. ;)

    Make the trip... they are well worth it.

    it’s only a 6.5 hr drive one way for me... I may have googled it haha...
    ...on the other hand, I do like sleeping in my bed. I’m afraid I’d have to sleep inside the cabinets if I bought them... 😂
    Current Collection:
    Monitor 4a (Peerless), Monitor 4b (Peerless), Monitor 5a (Peerless), Monitor 7b (Peerless) (2x pair), Modified Monitor 7c’s (194’s), SDA CRS+ (SL2000), RTA12c (194's), SDA SRS 2 (SL2000), SDA SRS 3.1TL (198’s)

    Repair pile: SRS 3.1TL (198’s), SDA CRS, (1) lonely RTA 11TL to become a center channel... someday...

    Pairs that have passed through:
    Monitor 5b (SL1000), Monitor 5b (SL2000) (2x pair), Monitor 10a (Peerless), Monitor 10c (3x pair), RTA8, RTA8TL, RTA 11T, SDA 2, SDA 2a, SDA 2b, SDA 1b, SDA 1c, SDA SRS 2

    ...and more to come, it’s a sickness.

    FANTASTIC! :D

    If you don't like their sound ( I think you'll be pleasantly shocked at what comes from them!), you won't have any problem re-selling them I'm sure.

    How long of a road trip will it be? A long one?

    Dave,

    Go ahead and order 2 of those RD-O194's or 198's tomorrow. ;) I think they're blade-blade.

    A pr. of SDA-CRS's with new RDO's for 175.00 isn't to shabby. Not at all! B)

    *sigh*

    A 45 minute drive AND he has tweeter upgrades in the house.

    It ain't fair I tell ya
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 9,370
    I just got a GREAT pair of CRS+'s ( Pin Blade ) ONLY because a member on the Forum here alerted me since I was in the area ( 50 miles away but still ) for 100.00 plus road trip.

    Dave's going to get his for 75.00 plus road trip.

    Who's next? Who's going to get their pr. for 50.00?

    Maybe FREE and they'll be around the block. :D

    I sure hope it's one of us Polk Forum Members! :p
