    $1500 is a price that would pique my interest for those SRS's if I was a little closer. 8 hour drive each way would be a bit much without a stayover. Those 10's look very early.

    I agree to a point. Are you in the Asheville area? Seems to be very few audio people these days especially in the South. Hell here in SC I only know of a handful of audio shops in the whole state. Must people buy the big box stores newest thing or pay $$$$ for the newest thing all set up.

    I earned my merit badge when I was 23 and I drove from NJ to Littleton, CO straight through in 33 hours with a cooler full of fried chicken and beer and a pocket full of nodoz.

    PS: the beer was for when I got there.

    Many fond memories there. Not long after I graduated "A School" NATTC Millington closed. Aviation schools were transplanted to Pensacola and Millintgon became the on stop shopping for Navy Personnel Command.

    Yeah, it would be nice to be able to flip them for a small gain if they don't work well in my space. Not to mention the two and a half hour round trip and lunch I'll be buying my buddy who's truck we'll be using to pick them up.

    Buy a couple sets to flip to drive the price down even more for the SRS lol
