Bowers & Wilkins 805 Diamond (D2), Pair of… tweeters not good.

I used these as rear speakers in a surround sound system with a 5 channel Classe system.  They really got little use.  But then I decided to go 2 channel and purchased a couple of Pass class A amps, which immediately blew the tweeters out.  Hunted the world to find new tweeters and finally found a dealer in Holland who would sell me a pair for $1400 or $1500. You’d think that I would have checked the volume before testing them right? Foolishly I didn’t, and blew the new ones right out immediately.  Grrrrrrr!!  They have been sitting in their original boxes for a couple or 3 years now.  Some days I just want to drop them in the trash, other days I could just cry.  But now I have the Raidho’s and De Vore 96’s are coming.  My wife insists all the boxed stereo stuff be gone along with a lot of the superfluous stuff I’ve accumulated.

So, 805’s, pretty much perfect except for the tweeters, includes boxes, jumpers, manuals, all the stuff.  I can let you know where I got the tweeters for $700 less than retail.  I only took a couple of pictures.  The other speaker is in similar condition.  Wahhh!

Come by Seal Beach, CA, to hear them work.  Yeah, they still put out music (strange highs).

Shipping is on you.  My zip is 90740; for shipping costs plug your zip into UPS’s website.  Each box (2) is 35lb.  Their dimensions are 14x19x23 inches. I’ll charge actual UPS shipping rates to your zip code as I’m uncertain as to Audiogon’s shipping calculator.  FedEx is not an option.  Sorry but no trades, real estate deals, cashier’s checks, regular Paypal (but Friends and Family is OK), used autos, or stranger than strange paper trails. Not currently accepting offers either, i.e,  offers ignored.  Thanks.
