Selling my main speaker gear- Tweaked Gedlee Abbey (the speaker box got additional internal bracing/insulation) and crossover in an external box. I paid over a grand to make the speaker boxes more stiff and cross-overs in separate box with hardwired speaker cable- you can change that. I have 3 identical speakers and one of the ext. crossover is modified for center channel.
Price is for the pair and I can sell you single center channel if required.
This can be a DIYer's delight since you can refinish them and also tweak crossover component or cables to your liking. I would rate 6/10 from finish perspective and you can get it to 9/10 or 10/10 if you spend time with auto rubbing/polishing compound.
These speakers have been eye opening (or should I say ear opening?) around Earl Geddes's speaker/audio principles on constant directivity and use of waveguides.
Since I recently changed apartments, my set-up is dismantled and speakers are in storage now. You can see them onsite in San Diego.
So to your next question why am I selling them- I usually dabble with multiple gear-in this case I have moved up up to the Summa line and have to sell Abbeys to fund upgrades. If I had additional room like before, I would have kept them.
Google for reviews- you will find plenty.
These speakers will ship by freight. Paypal + 3.1%.
The Abbey has a 12" High Performance 12TBX100 B&C woofer and a 12" waveguide and the same 1" compression driver as the Summa (DE250 B&C). The retail for assembled with piano black finish was $6K+shipping. I am asking for the pair $3400+s/h. Paypal cash/gift or cash/check deposit to your nearest BofA.
