    SDA1 is far too expensive. If you meant (SDA1a) instead if 2a well that is first gen SDA1. Two things give it away 1. Midwoofer ports. 2. Old RTA interconnect 3prong socket.

    Far too much
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,737
    Little pricey on the 12s, but they are a rare bird. If you can get them for 250, I'd call it a good purchase.

    Nice! Would love these but they are too far from me (thankfully). Not the price though. That's about $400 more than I'd pay.
