    • $1800 FIRM   Located in Lakewood, Southern California 90713
      Speakers are in an honest 9/10 condition and sound even better than they look. Beautiful custom stain. Must be seen in person to appreciate.  I just bought these from Justin and I must say although they sound amazing, I listen to primarily electronic music and dont have the room to pair these with a proper subwoofer.  I am used to the bass from Klipschorns .  Call or text (310) 227-0019 if you are ready to buy or have questions.

      MODIFICATIONS:
      Replaced some of the beat-up outer layer on the ply
      Dog house was re-glued for stiffness (PL90 used).
      Doghouse braces installed. 
      Stock barrier strip removed and new binding posts added. 
      Fasttrac Wood Tractrix horn installed with K55s.
      Eliptical tweeter installed with Eminence HF driver.
      Woofer replaced with new Eminence 15Cs.
      All rewired in silver plate hookup wire. 
      ALK Cornscalawal CSW450 (2nd order on bass sec) installed. 
      Rear of LS had 1/2" added and recess for top-hat cover with modern binding posts installed. 
      La Scalas lacquered in deep walnut. Front of speaker and top-hat cover in back Lacquer. 
      2 custom dolliesflush with the front of the cabinet that do not interfere with bass horn. 
       
    • If you are interested in purchasing talk to @MetropolisLakeOutfitters      
    • Are you allowing the AVR to do the bass-management duties, i.e. following the manual's suggested setup instructions: http://manuals.denon.com/AVRS710W/NA/EN/GFNFSYaxhqtbzr.php#OKNRMLfvunedcc  and turn the low-pass knob on the rear of the sub to max.  Set the gain to 0/12 0'clock position and the phase switch is normally at 0*; it's provided because the speakers and subwoofer sound best when they are in-phase.    Meaning their woofers move in and out in sync. To check your sub's phase, play music with bass, listen for a minute or so and sit near the sub, flipping the sub's 0/180-degree phase switch slowly back and forth. The correct setting is the one that yields more bass and when the woofers of the sub and speakers are in sync. You may have to try a few different recordings before you hear any difference (if any at all).  It might help to turn up the sub's volume level a few notches for this test. If you don't hear any difference between the 0 and 180-degree settings, leave the phase control in the 0 position.   Also, if your AVR is not already configured this way, try setting your floors to "small" and their x-over to 60Hz or 80Hz, whichever garners the best result.  Setting the x-over to 40Hz is too low, even though your speakers are rated at 37Hz if not mistaken.  A decent article here: https://www.avforums.com/threads/crossover-and-speaker-settings-in-relation-to-bass-management.1019893/             
    • That cowl is ridiculous... even if there was a plenum in there, it doesn't need that much volume does it?
    • That's the problem it seems, the better things are never good for you, did you two get a chance to go to Cafe du Monde ?    Hope y'all had a good time.
    • I heard they were working on it but had no idea it was in that condition, wow. The local news said the cost was 1 million per block, when they start digging there is no telling what they are going to find.   
    • He's allright like that, my mom always told me to pick better friends, she was right.    Part of the problem I was having was the DAC, I love it, but it made connecting everything I wanted a nightmare with limited connections. Chief Bonehead rewired everything on the 2 CH and HT to all be controlled with the receiver which has easy connections for almost anything. Before I had to switch and press many different things to go from different sources for both 2 ch and ht. much easier now. I was at first completely against the change because with the other receiver I used it never sounded nearly as good as with just the DAC. But with a different receiver it now does sound just as good and much easier to control and switch everything. Both receivers are old but one apparently is much better quality.   Plus we added the new sub and set it to match everything, it definitely made both systems sound much better. After we got to listening I just had to tell Roy, I guess my old sub sucked much more than I thought it did, it was a Danely spud clone.......it's going to my daughters now.   I only heard the 1502 with music until now and really liked it, but with movies it does much more than I thought it could possibly do. 
    • They look very rough, suspect possible water damage, all depends upon the price would have to be discounted deep for me to take them on as a project.
    • the sex stuff was/is the least of his crimes are they going to bury him for all the other stuff? I guess not he's a friend of Hillary's. Bet he makes a lot of contacts in prison.
