    Might be a long shot since you're in SoCal, but I saw this listing from the Central Valley. No affiliation, but it's the lowest price that I've seen for lsi7's.https://stockton.craigslist.org/ele/d/polk-audio-lsi-bookshelf/6214635446.html

    Wohhh, that is misinformedly or desperately cheap for LSi7s.

    Thanks! That is pretty darn cheap. I shot an email over and maybe he would ship but it's unlikely the original boxes were kept.

    While I do have a set of LSi7s I could be persuaded to let go of, I am hesitant unless I can find something else I really enjoy to replace them.

    The LSi's are a very nice speaker. Perhaps some ribbon speakers are in your future to give you something different than the gear in your sig? I've been curious as of late picking up several inexpensive speakers to play around with because any upgrades are going to be cost prohibitive. Sometimes we just want something different, not necessarily better ;).

    Thanks for the offer. It is very much appreciated, but I think at this time I'm really holding out for the cherry or real wood veneer to match the rest of the Lsi's and the living room decor.

    You're right, they don't look stock. Still they must have value. As a dealer what would you price them at Skip?

    I'd value them at Zero.

    The reason they dont have stock drives is you cant get stock *woofer* drivers for the LSi series anymore, not sure about the tweeter. Polk sold out of them, and no one else makes them that I am aware of.

    Meaning you have to either get as close as you can and be ok w that, or find a set of damaged speaker to plunder, or drivers for sale on their own. The later two can be hard to do.

    Dan is right. If the drivers aren't stock, who knows what else was done to the speaker? The only reason I'd buy those would be for the cabinets, if I had a damaged set, and I'd pay much less than that for them.

    Ok, thanks I'll offer the seller 10 bucks and see how that goes. The cabinets do look to be in good shape though.

    Thanks guys. I was pretty excited when i first clicked on the link but then kept reading and saw that they aren't stock woofers. Funny thing is that I actually grabbed a pair of Lsi7's off fleabay in ebony for a decent price, but so getting a cherry cabinet would be a good buy, but at 200$ that's way too steep so I'll see if I can work with him on price. Might not be the most honest guy if he's selling speakers with mods and not divulging it.

    Lol. Indeed!

    I was able to reach out to him and asked him where he got the speakers. Stated he got them off of CL and didn't know the woofers weren't OEM. He didn't take my 50$ offer.
