    The dust caps are pushed in on one set. I stumbled across the thread below about what appear to be the same speakers.

    Nice note PK... didn't see that. Thanks for the update.
    These just posted in up by St. Paul. $800 for 1.2s...no real pictures of the speakers.
    Might be worth looking into for someone in that area.

    Kind of weird no pictures. Just the print ad from decades ago.

    I would love to buy them, but my wife would file for divorce. :o

    Lives less than five miles away. Next suburb over. Asked him for address to come on over and he says sorry sold? I text him to send me photo of serial number or right it down for me. Just want to know if they were TL's? Peace. Hope a Polky snagged them up?

    I have a pair of Monitors 10 that I recently did a upgraded crossover with caps and resistors and enjoy them a lot. I read the post here about the SDA-1 speakers and it makes me wonder what I am missing?

    There are two pair for sale in northern California where I live. Both are listed as SDA-1 but one pair has two small holes (one inch or so) between the tweeters and drivers. Both have four drivers, two tweeters and a large driver (passive or active?) at the bottom. Is the bottom driver passive or in fact a driver? One pair is listed for $300 the other for $400. both have the connecting cable.

    So what are the desirable SDA speakers, I have seen pictures with many variations of number of drivers, some passive woofers and some active woofers.

    The earliest version of 1A's had the dual port holes. The second version of those did away with those ports. I would say that $300 is a fair price if they are fully working and in good condition. $400 is a little high. If they were the later 1C models with the ability to be used with monoblocks, they could bring closer to $500 in good condition.

    Ok...another chance on SRS speakers... $250
    http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/ele/5500357240.html

    Not sure what's wrong with them as the ad does not say, but only asking $250... that might be worth a road trip for someone to Washington.

    I wish we could find these type of deals down south.

    I asked on them last night. The rear cable interconnect has been modified with speaker terminals and not the best job. One driver has tears and passive have new wood screws. A bit of a what could be expected but then again, it could be worth it.
  • Rex81Rex81 Posts: 193
    Still a great deal. Less than $75 and an hour's worth of work. They're great speakers.
  • GSXSRT4GSXSRT4 Posts: 43
    Wow great deal. I'd jump on it if I was in the area. I'm still in the hunt for the SRS towers.
  • leftwinger57leftwinger57 Posts: 2,918
    Yes I know they are not speakers but this might interest somebody. Multiple sheets of BH-5. This was coincidentally the same guy I got mine from in central Jersey. He's had these for a long time so there might be wiggle room. Just sayin.
