SDA CRS

    So, I am now thinking about the fate of the SDA’s. I do really, really like them, but even with the SDA cable, I like the Missions and the Monitors more. As much as I tried to like the SL2000’s, they are just too bright and harsh for me, and I don’t have the money to put into them for the tweeters and rebuilding the crossovers. I also don’t really want to put it into them, as I need to start saving up for a car, and pay for gas. The entire reason for buying the NAD was so that I could get that, cables, and be done. But I forgot that I needed to rebuild the SDA’s, and that will add at least another $250. And then I need stands for them, and the list continues.
    So while I do really like them, and I keep telling myself I need to keep them, I am thinking that I might sell them, as I really don’t want to store these speakers until I can afford to upgrade them (probably a while after I move out in a few years, as I’m turning my funds away from audio for a while). What I am thinking I might do is sell these now, and then later buy a different pair. None of this is set in stone, and I’m going to continue to think about it for a while most likely.
    Thanks for all your help, and if I decide to keep them, I will certainly put it to good use. I may still do a few of the cheaper mods to the Missions, so your tips have not gone to waste. Some of you probably think that I have lost my marbles, but I can’t afford to do the upgrades and since I like my other speakers more, these will never get used and will just sit, wasted. I don’t want that. I want someone to enjoy them.

    I can vouch for Dave's and Jesse's guidance on the H-nut procedure. My soon to be resurrected thread (upcoming winter project) of installing H-nuts on my 1C's. With pics! :smile:

    Thanks for the offer, but I think shipping would cost about as much as a new pack of nuts. :)
    And I was more referring to the price of RD0 tweeters, crossover restorations, and stands.
    Thanks for the offer! :)

    That sucks man. What trade were you working on? I was working on a trade for the Infinity Crescendo for a pair of JBL 4408 before I sold them.

    I was trading a friend the SDAs for an Optonica SA-5105 and $50. That thing doesn’t look amazing, but it sounds super, super good. But it ended up not working out.

    I totally just realized this was the wrong thread. :lol: oh well, nothing ended up happening anyways. :)
