    Maybe start with where you are... May be a pair local to you.

    Yes, where are you located? I have Monitor 5A with Peerless tweeters. They are in very nice condition (near excellent) cosmetically and functionally. However, I would only do local pickup. I'm in central Maryland.

    Troll Craigslist. There are usually 2-3 pair on the island at any point in time. I recommend either a peerless set or series 2 with the sl25k tweets.

    But you just need to ask yourself do you really need them anyway? B) B)

    I know exactly what you mean.

    If you want, I'll even upgrade the XO's at cost for components.

    Those are fantastic sounding, better than the series 1 by a long shot imo. If I didn't have 2 pair already I'd be all over these myself.

    What I'm saying is: get these!
