    Define "close". I'm 4.5 hours one way south of there in Indianapolis. So picking them up for you and bringing them here wouldn't help as I'm south of them not north as I believe you in Canada.

    I could probably get them into my Murano with the right padding but then I'd need to find a matching center which would prob be pricey...

    Oh and come up with 3500 dollars to begin with lol

    Some good deals in Indiana for some SDAs...

    And before anyone says anything, I DO NOT have the right room for these or I'd consider some SDAs.

    "Maybe" CRS+ would work but otherwise nope. Plus I've got those horns to build.

    1Cs for 300: http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649353497-polk-sda1c-speakers/

    SRS 2 for 425: http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649352599-polk-sda-srs-2/

    And some Ushers
    CP 6381 for 1700 (think it's a bit high but color and location are good): http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649278511-usher-audio-cp-6381/

    The guy selling the SRS 2s says they typically sell for four times his asking price. Yea right.

    The 1C's listed look like very early ones, they have a blade/blade cable and the backs look like they have blade/blade receptacles. There is also a large red note posted on the rear of one. These cannot be used with non-common ground amplifiers, hence no AI-1's or Dreadnought's.

    And they are on eBay for 250.00. They are blade/blade and have the correct drivers for a 1c. But they are rough and no grills.
