These are for local pickup only. Not just selling the drivers - either the whole thing or nothing...

These are definitely DIY and an absolute STEAL at this price. You can find similar speakers (BK-16 from madisound) for $300+ used on some of the sale and auction sites out there. The drivers are mint, the cabinets are workable. These would be wonderful as part of a starter tube / horn system (triode for the purists). I have various options to flesh them out if you care - ESS or Audax horn tweeters, an M&K or a pair of Kinergetics subs...

To be clear, the cabinets are not perfect. Some of the woodcuts were a little larger than perhaps they should have been. They did come together and are rock-solid. The binding posts are a bit loose and they could use a good layer of varnish or clear-coat. The reason I'm parting with them is because I have too many speakers. Please look at pic 4 for the most obvious fit issue.

Paypal is not really an option - local pickup only and cash only.

Please see local NYC CL listings - search for Hamilton Heights Hifi - have a few other odds and ends including Spica TC-50's (that need some love and affection) a pair of Focal Daline 6.1's for sale as well as a bunch of other gear. Redone pair of Sequel II's (new panels, revamped electronics), an Audio Note SORO SE ...
