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