    I'm just saying: Tony's got a truck, moving blankets and a desire for some 1Cs, and you just can't seem to help yourself (like me) when it comes to killer deals like that. And just think, if you time the transactions just right, the wife will never know the difference ;)

    My wife SPOTTED the TRITON ONES the other evening. She asked where they came from. "Yard Sale" I said.

    How much did THEY cost? "500.00 I said".

    S%%$#!!**LL#%^CK%#! You'll never get your money back paying that much for speakers!!

    "I or you can certainly get the money back on these," I calmly told her.

    I did pay around 500+ for each of them. :);)
    I just hope if I pass over, she doesn't sell them for 250.00 for the pr. or just give them away. :s

    Heck, my Daughter not long ago said while laughing and looking at her mother, "we'll just put your speakers and electronics out on the driveway and let people take what they want for free". Her mother giggled with agreement. :s
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Saw the ad for the free monitor 7's a number of days back, responded with an email and left a couple of voice mails, no answer. Only a half hour drive for me so it would be great to pick them up.

    So he finally called yesterday afternoon and offered them to me. He is working and will be starting to take classes in the evening so time is not there for these speakers. Seems like a nice guy, just wants to pass them along to someone else who may have time. I really don't but I'll make some time, just need to make arrangements to grab them. Monitor 7C.

    Killer score on the 1Cs! Are those replacement tops? Look high gloss in one of the photos... That is the exact reason I can't hang here. I would have wanted them and have no need for them :smile:

    The side panels on these are not stock either, but they look cool.

    I've seen much worse and yes they worked just fine. I've seen some that looked worse than a pimpled faced 14 year old. I've not personally seen them completely come apart. one of those tweeters is a replacement looks to be a Midwest made tweeter.

    In the software world they'd say that's a proprietary feature, not an error. ;)
