    1.2TL's have eluded me so far and these would complete my collection. However I'd need to be closer to 1500 dollars. bicpb8y73c4m.jpg

    Yup.
    Original owner Polk speakers generally are in great condition and I'd pay a bit more knowing that.

    The original or inherited speakers I've bought have been great buys. B)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I paid significantly more than that for mine as the good stuff isn't normally found cheap. They also ended up being economical in the long run as they've stopped the speaker go round here since 2011.

    Just had to see if my speakers had showed up here yet and here they are. Getting ready to move on down south so I am trying to sell them on CL. Stuff is hard to sell here in Twin Falls county.

    Let Jay grab these so we can keep them in the family. It's hard to watch a nice pair like these go to anybody else...

    10-4. I do have some friends in Twin that could come pick them up and hold them for me if needed. Let me know if your other deal falls through.

    Hey Jay, your fiends here in Twin bought my speakers. Sorry. PS: I gave them a great deal on them, $500 for the pair!

    Glad you sold them, but to rub Jay's nose in it with the price is classless to say the least. You were gone for 6 years before your speakers came up for sale, so don't let that door hit you on the way out this time either...
