    I hate that! Some idiot probably listed them then went on vacation for a couple weeks or something. Had that happen to me more than once. Or he's got some kind of spam filter that won't let him get emails from CL and of course he's not smart enough to put his phone number in the ad...

    That was the scenario I had when I inquired about some GoldenEar speakers that happened to have it's base showing in a picture in the corner bottom right in a Yard Sale ad on Craigs' List. It took a few days for her to reply. She travels for work and was out of the country. I now own those Tritons.

    I ALMOST sent a bad email but just held my temper long enough. I might not have been welcomed at her yard sale if she heard my frustration over not getting a reply fast enough. I think she had in her ad if you have questions, email or call I think. I think I even called once and left a message. I told my story on here so it's researchable how it went down. :)

    Patience has paid off twice for me. Once it didn't.

    Yea, days without a return call or email sucks! I know. :# Especially if they don't take their ad down after they sell the things and it becomes a week or more! :s

    One big problem with Craigslist is Yahoo mail usually treats any messages from them as spam. They put the message directly into your spam folder and there is no prompt to show you. I missed out of a few great deals because of this. Only found out months later when I randomly checked my spam folder.

    If you use yahoo mail check you spam mail. If the seller is using yahoo he might not ever see any replies.

    Respectfully suggest anyone using Yahoo/Bellsouth/AT&T or AOL for their email change to a dedicated, professional email service, messagingengine.com. There are many domains available. I use fastmail.us ;-)

    Maybe im cheap but that seems little pricey. Maybe 200-250 tops IMO. Ive owned the M11's & LOVED them. I would love to hear the M12's. I would think if this guy is using a Pioneer sx1250 it must sound pretty darn good. The bass must be incredible

    Did you get them? :o

    Darn!
    If they still had them, I was going to tell them I had a friend close to them that would buy them after looking at them in person. But...I was probably next in line. Sorry. :'(

    That's OK, it just adds to the vintage of them....
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    I had to lol at the "black paint" tweeter on these. I am guessing (hoping) its disconnected. I assume someone put SL2000's in it and then it got upgraded crossovers and RD0's. I suppose with one SL2000 and one RD0 it looked like it had a back eye :p.

    01212_4VYQkEmJNEH_1200x900.jpg


    One might be able to put a fill in the screw holes from the SL2000 and put a cover plate over the unused tweeter.
