    ^ those are still on my bucket list... Along with 3.1s...



    Some day...
  • I almost jumped in my car and drove right away, until I saw the disclaimer "these are two left speakers". Even so, great deal if you need the parts! 2.3TL.

    Looks like some CRS+ SDAs. Not a great price, but they are kick **** little speakers if you can't afford the big ones!

    BTW, no affiliation to either of the above posts. My SDAs aren't for sale! haha :-)
  • They are looking nice.

    With only one serial number pic, it makes you wonder if they are both right speakers or not. :p

    @FestYboy weren't you looking for Monitor 12's? A little overpriced at $325 IMHO, but within driving distance.

    I am!! But I agree with you on the price, too high. Then again... How often do they come up for sale?

    On the other hand, I'm trying to save for a different piece for my other hobby.

    Thanks for the heads up @DaveHo , I'll keep it in mind.

    The bottoms are concerning.

    They look like they've been painted black and now the color is wearing off so the wood is showing through...

    I think the Passive Radiator in the Mon. 12's looks a lot like the PR's in the SRS 3.1TL's, which are non existent in the wild. If I ever find a pair 12's close by,I'm going to check them out.

    A little over 2 hours. Not a bad drive, mostly a straight shot south.

    I'm sure you're right, but they sure look similar.

    So here's my offer. Make your best deal, and I will PP the funds to you, so you can pay in cash! That, IMO, is the least I can do as you helped me out.

    For helping me in my time of need, and distress, over this whole MC300 amp issue and drama (220v)! I really appreciate the help and support you gave me, and on top of that retrieving the shipping box from what could have been a bad situation. Just ship the box back to me at your convenience, as I now have room for it!

    I really do appreciate your help Arty! Just want to return the favor, a bit. And, even though we never met, I consider you a friend. You are yet another example of why I love CP so much!

    Thank you sir!

    I would call this a "Grand Karma".

    If you're referring to the "RTi10 pair and RTi4 pair," I could be the first leg of Polkie Express up to as far as Cherokee, NC.
    Or did you mean the Monitor 12s?

    If that's possible.... Hmmm, might be worth letting the worms eat into my brains.
