    Mike,
    No, according to the media he lives in Hiram GA which is about 23 miles west. It is still somewhat rural but growing fast.

    I grew up about 40 miles west of Marietta GA.

    Great deal here and they look to be in nice condition. I would be all over them if they were on the East Coast (I am in NY) as I have been looking for a pair of 2.3TLs for quite sime time. It seems that any 2.3TLs that pop up for sale lately are on the West Coast. Hope a Western Polkie can grab these.

    $1500 is a price that would pique my interest for those SRS's if I was a little closer. 8 hour drive each way would be a bit much without a stayover. Those 10's look very early.

    I agree to a point. Are you in the Asheville area? Seems to be very few audio people these days especially in the South. Hell here in SC I only know of a handful of audio shops in the whole state. Must people buy the big box stores newest thing or pay $$$$ for the newest thing all set up.

    I earned my merit badge when I was 23 and I drove from NJ to Littleton, CO straight through in 33 hours with a cooler full of fried chicken and beer and a pocket full of nodoz.

    PS: the beer was for when I got there.

    I did something similar from Memphis to New Haven CT when I was in training for the Navy. 22 hours each way for a 4 day weekend. Good times.

    Many fond memories there. Not long after I graduated "A School" NATTC Millington closed. Aviation schools were transplanted to Pensacola and Millintgon became the on stop shopping for Navy Personnel Command.

    You lowballer you. :)

    Yeah, it would be nice to be able to flip them for a small gain if they don't work well in my space. Not to mention the two and a half hour round trip and lunch I'll be buying my buddy who's truck we'll be using to pick them up.

    Buy a couple sets to flip to drive the price down even more for the SRS lol
