Parting Out LSi Speakers

I have some LSi speakers that I got and the cabinets are in very rough shape. Seems I'd be better off selling the drivers separately. All prices include shipping to CONUS unless otherwise noted.

Mid woofers for LSi9, LSi7, LSiC, LSi15, LSi25, LSi-F/X (MW5534-1) - $50 each
Ring radiator tweeters for all LSi models - $45 each
Grills for LSiF/X - $10 each PLUS actual shipping
Crossovers for LSiF/X - $25 each
Powerports - $15 each

Also have a nice LSiC (complete) that I'd sell for $145 shipped.

Also have a very nice pair of LSiF/X surrounds for sale in the FM that I'll sell for $290 shipped. See them here:

    Bump.

    Just want to reiterate that shipping is included in all prices except the grills. If anyone wants more than one of anything or multiple items, I'll combine shipping and knock the price down a bit.
  • Interested in the LSiC. I have LSi7's for my fronts and this would match nicely. As long as the extra load on the denon x4000 would be ok?

    I just looked up your receiver and it looks like quite a nice AVR. Generally 4 ohm speakers put more of a draw than most AVRs can handle. The LSi7s are rated at 4 ohms, but are more like a 6 ohm speaker. The LSiC is a 4 ohm speaker.

    I definitely agree that the LSiC would be a great match for your 7s for a matched front 3 soundstage. You may be able to drive the three with your receiver, however, you’d be better off adding a separate amp since your Denon has Pre-outs.

    I went from an AVR to a preamp and amplifier and it was one of the best improvements I made in our HT.

    Don’t know if that helps or not...

    Honestly the 7s are a pretty easy load. The LSiC isn’t going to put you over the edge. Would a separate amp sound better? Yes, but you will be able to enjoy what you have...I drove three LSi7s with a lesser avr and it sounded great to me at the time...

    I certainly would, but I'm already selling the LSis. :/ Thanks for letting me know. :)

  • I'll take the LSiC. I see a 3 channel amp in my future though. It was this or a CSI A6 and switch to the RTI series

    Sale pending on the LSiC.

    Drivers, tweeters, x-overs, powerports, grills still available.

    @zippty2001 - whatcha looking for? I have a pair of LSi9s, 2 pair of LSi-f/x and 2 LSiCs. I sold the good pair of f/x’s and the good LSiC already. The remaining f/x pair, C, and 9s are the ones in “not so great” shape.

    Crossovers and power ports available for LSi-f/x speakers. Open to offers on these.

    I’m likely going to keep the LSi9’s. I enjoy them too much while working in the garage.

    Still have a pretty nice LSiC - $150 shipped.

    I've found a car care product called Meguiars PlastX works well for removing swirls from the shiny finish. It's a soft polish for plastic and is only $6 or so. Figured I'd post this here in case anyone was worried the top of the LsiC is too swirly.
  • scubalabscubalab Posts: 2,784
    Bump - Still available:

    2 woofers ($50.00 each shipped)
    4 ring radiator tweeters ($45.00 each shipped)
    1 LSiC center speaker ($150.00 shipped!!!)
  • scubalabscubalab Posts: 2,784
    Sale pending in the LSiC B)
  • scubalabscubalab Posts: 2,784
    Alright... the LSiC is back up for sale. Was holding for a buyer, but he forgot about it and went in another direction.

    Let's say $140 shipped.

    Also still have 2 LSi woofers ($45 each shipped) and 4 ring radiator tweeters ($40 each shipped).

    Will consider listing on eBay if no takers here.

    I bought the last pair of LSi woofers that Polk had in stock quite some time ago and they said there'd be no more, so grab these while the going is good, never hurts to have some spares.

    Soon they will be going for bigger amounts, as they become harder to find.

    -to the OP,

    Do you have the LSi9 cabinets in stock? I am looking for one replacement power port that mounts onto the back of the cabinet.
  • scubalabscubalab Posts: 2,784
    I have some 9s, but decided to keep them intact and use for the garage. I do have the F/X cabinets. The power port might be the same. Let me check. I know the grills from the F/Xs are the same as the grills for the 9s...
  • _nerd_nerd Posts: 53
    Thanks for the fast reply, and for checking. One of my 9s has damage to the Power Port, I bought it that way here on the FS board. Doesn’t affect the sound.

    @scubalab powerport is diff
