These speakers are an immaculate find. These speakers on behalf of the owner had been removed from the crates at the Wilson dealer to insure they were functioning correctly and inspected thoroughly for any potential physical imperfections or damages, which there were none. Afterwards they were placed back in the Factory crates for storage. The Maxx 2s have not been removed from their factory crates since then and the sealed factory protective cover protecting the impressive Desert Silver Gloss finish has never been removed and is completely intact. The speaker grills were never taken out of the plastic covers and are also in perfect condition. The Maxx 2s were purchased in August of 2007 and is still in possession by the original owner. It would be hard to imagine that there are many Maxx 2s that have been used less and are in better condition.
