These speakers are amazing for the price! The finish is a metallic silver, kind of like an automotive finish with very nice real wood side panels. These retailed for $3,000 but they honestly look like they should cost double that. The sound of these speakers is phenomenal but unfortunately, they are just too big for the room I want to use them in. There are a few dings but they aren't very noticeable like they would be with a wood finish. The buyer must pick up in Pittsburgh as these are way too heavy to ship plus there are no boxes for them. Total weight is about 120lb each due to filling the chambers. See review below.
