Legendary Proac Response 2S Speakers for grabs for a serious audiophile or collector. This set is in fantastic condition and have been updated to provide another 20-30 years of performance. As you probably know the woofer surround foam used on this model was guaranteed to deteriorate over time and all Proacs will need to have it replaced at some point. The woofers have just had new foam surrounds professional installed and are back to like new performance. Also, the foam around the tweeters, which is mostly cometic was just replaced with new pieces and look brand new. The cabinet finish is outstanding with now signs of fading or damager or scratches. The color and finish is uniform all around which is super rare since it was prone to fading from sunlight exposure. Look at any other pair of Response 2s and youll notice that the color behind the grill is darker than the rest of the cabinet. Not so on these beauties. Of all the standard finishes, this is bar far the prettiest and most luxurious looking finish.
The model 2S was an upgrade over the regular 2 featuring a rear mounted bass port and a reworked crossover. There were also some changes as to how the rear of the cabinet was made resulting on a more rigid enclosure.
If you’ve been looking for a pair in great condition this is it. I doubt you’ll find a pair in better shape. Im not going to talk much about the performance since you probably already know but they are incredibly dynamic and sound extremely BIG for their size.
Speakers will be professional packed for safe arrival. Stands in pictures not included but highly recommended.
Available for pickup in our NYC Cloud9 Smarthome showroom or in northern NJ.
