    Man o man, those 2.3's look saweet in OHIO and with upgraded tweets to boot.


    Yep $300.00 worth of tweets make these $600.00 speakers, is how I look at it. I wish I had the room for these.
    Just so everyone knows they are 2.3TL's. If you are close grab those, they don't come around very often.

    Once again, too far from me. Those 2.3tl's would be in the back of my Explorer right now if they were not two thousand miles away. Akron? Isn't that the home of Goodyear Tires?

    At one time B. F. Goodrich, Firestone, General and Goodyear all were based there. Goodyear is the only one left I believe.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    I don't think it's a great deal but it's interesting. No affiliation: Monitor 10's and others. Probably 5's? A center too. 7 speakers for $700

    I have been so tempted to pick these up in the past couple of weeks. One could say that I had been hording the knowledge of this add. But knowing that I don't have a big enough space or enough power to properly enjoy these speakers, to me would be the ultimate crime. If anyone between Asheville and Charlotte has the means to pick these up let me know and I'll bring the beers (and some tunes).

    Well just purchased a set of Polk CRS+ for $80 bucks off of Craigslist (South Florida). There a bit beat up and 1 driver ain't working but overall sound good. Time to freshen them up!
  • MrBuhlMrBuhl Posts: 2,427
    $80 sounds like a deal to me - especially if you're able to freshen yourself! Congrats!

    OK here goes. I have two vintage pair I'll give away to anyone who can pick them up this afternoon or later this evening in Manhattan. There's a chance I can get them out tomorrow too.

    7b's with peerless tweeters and stands. Working well, looking pretty good overall with minimal expected wear in the corners and a little edge.

    5jr+ there are two issues with one of the 5jr+; a rear lower corner ding and a frozen driver. The other is in fine shape.

    I can pull them out and take pictures if you're serious about pick-up. I have a small window with my family away and this is my way of giving back to the forum.

    I'd like these to end up with someone who will enjoy them, not flip them.

    Just saw these in southern Jersey. I think way high and no mention of the i/c cable which I brought to his attention. Nice looking enough 2.3s but for $850 I doubt it.
