    Looks like those 3.1s are for sale in Lansing, not Chicago. He claims that audiogon blue book has them at $2k? Seems a bit steep to me. Makes his $800 price tag look like a deal then.

    I see the tears on both woofers, otherwise, great purchase if the tweeters sound great and the other 2 woofers are ok. ;)



    I would've bought them too. Maybe you can seal those tears. ;)

    If the tear is just in the surrounds, midwest audio sells replacements. I had a hole on a woofer for my sda 2bs. I just ordered some rubbers and was good to go.

    Well I took a look at them and sure enough they weren't pristine. Not beat up either, but my biggest issue was the rubber surround. The seller was eager to move them since he was in the process of moving. After some negotiating we settled on 60 dollars and shook hands to finalize the deal.3o1rwf7myrjk.jpg
    Wow, that's some good negotiating right there! I'd say those stands alone are worth close to $50.
