    That's not right.

    Not only that, but they aren't air tight (note the gaping hole below the terminal cup).

    Not sure if this is a deal. Not sure what they are either! What is an SDS 400? Lets just say they are rare.......Near Philadelphia.

    I seen that plus those MW drives do not look like Polk. The description is all cattywampus...

    Specs:
    - Type: 6 driver loudspeaker system
    - Bass Radiator: 1 x D-1200-A
    - Midbass: 3 x MW 7500
    - Tweeter: 2 x SL1000

    Maybe good for passives only ....maybe

    They appear to be clean 1C's go check them out. if the drivers all move freely without any scratching sounds when gently pushed in, the tops are stain free, the fabric is not clawed up from a cat or stained from dog urine, and they are pin-blade IC terminals then that would be a decent price.

    They are already in the living room.
    7kjohba9ojw8.jpg
    I don't know if they will be a permanent replacement or just for a time. So far I really enjoy the sound. I can't really A/B them, so all I can really say is they certainly sound good. I should be able to get my money out of them with some patience if I decide to sell them on. Hard to say at this point. I will use this opportunity to complete the mods on my 2BTLs. This will likely take a while as my ship will be away from the pier a lot over the next 18 months.

    Also, I just re-read your thread from the upgrades you did when you found your 1Cs. Good read that gave me some idea of what is possible for them. I do plan to complete the 2BTL mods before I dig in to the 1Cs due to the 2BTLs having a better potential from what I have read. Of course eventually the plan is to have them both optomized...
