$6,250 [or best offer] You only live once! Here's an amazing gift for yourself or someone special who appreciates fine listening! If you are looking at this posting you probably know about these speakers. If not, then see below links to learn more. They were professionally finished in automotive "Piano" Black high gloss paint and the proper 10 year lithium batteries were updated 2015. The speaker's covers were also factory recovered. The speaker covers may appear gray in some photos but they are dark black with a soft, smooth and stretchy OEM material that were redone by the factory in 2015. The covers have only been on the speakers once for the attached photos. The speakers are HEAVY (about 200 lbs each and shipping them in the correct factory box makes them 250 lbs each). They each include a 400 watt amplifier powering a massive internal subwoofer. Obviously, local pick up would be best. We can cooperate with packing and shipping and that would be an additional charge. The factory confirmed that they will sell and ship us two empty packing boxes (for about $500 a pair!) which is extra and not part of this sale price. We have powered them both up. Additionally, we can supply the correct crossovers that have new 10 year lithium batteries installed for an additional $750 if you do not have a pair (but they are not included in this $6250 sale price). Finally, Richard Vandersteen confirmed on his blog that high end AVR processors (like Denon 4308CI) that have the correct cross-over adjustability can optimize these reference items without exterior crossovers (as an example see picture of page 29 of 4308CI user manual). We will consider cash or local bank check and prefer local pickup and would assist your shipping carrier after the sale is completed. The speakers were moved into the livingroom after the pictures were taken. The vintage Turbo is not part of the deal....LOL!
Questions for the seller
could you please clarify the comments on the 10yo batteries.
you say they were updated in 2015, then later you say crossovers + new batteries are not included.
are there 2 sets in this speaker ?
Each speaker has an internal board level controller. They have been updated as described. The optional self contained cross-overs are also board level battery powdered and are not part of the speakers. They can be hooked up to the speakers if you do not have any other way to control output levels.
