    Anyone recognize these? Owner apparently doesn't know what they are. The tweeter reminds me of something but I can't remember what.

    Generic something or others... The foam surrounds appear to be completely gone.

    The clear mid/woofer is reminiscent of early Mission speakers/Infinity speakers... both of which made, and make, great speakers. The tweeter also looks similar to the earlier version of my Missions tweeter... I'm gonna guess they are Mission 737 Renaissances, in repainted/rebuilt cabinets.
    xmhrpxdcvmea.jpg
    If that is what they are, I'd give them a go at $80... Great drivers and it seems like Mission cabinets come up for sale fairly commonly (which is odd, as the fully assembled speakers are pretty rare.)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    They'll need new surrounds though. add 20+ to the cost.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    You are right, that's what the tweeters reminded me of. Never heard them, but have seen them for sale a lot.

    You're right, in which case, my post above is wrong. All Missions ('cept the babies of the line, the 70s) had rubber surrounds.

    The combo isn't a bad price, 555s are going for 400 on the Bay, so add the RS3b and pre, their asking price isn't off course, especially if the kids are still in good shape.

    Picking these up tonight. Not sure what he means about the driver, but hopefully it's fixable. If not, the rest of the set is more than worth the price.

    Very nice guy selling them. Moving to Virginia Beach. He bought them new. Mixed bag with the condition. The sub has pretty serious scratches. You can't take the grills off the towers (I think they are Phantom V2) or the bookies, so I couldn't see what was rattling inside the one tower. Definitely something laying loose inside. There's a bunch of screws to remove on the back to get at the inside, so that's a job for the weekend.

    The bookies and center are very nice shape, looking forward to trying them out.

    I have a separated shoulder (long story involving a German Shepard and a fence) so I can lift the sub out of the trunk, but the rest is in the house.

    Found the rattle in the tower. Tweeter was completely loose and hitting the mid driver. Screw holes stripped do I just turned it and screwed it in between the other holes. Need to test, but I think it's fine.

    Unfortunately, finally got to test them and the tweeter is toast.
