  1. Just as an aside, the 62 II's all have the rounded grille. It's the 62 I's/62's that have the triangular grille.
  2. You should buy them.
  3. These would be your best bet.
  4. Same thing with the KLF's - footprint. Twin 12" drivers.
  5. The problems I see with both the Chorus and the 4.2's is space. Both will be wider than the towers you have now. The Chorus are considerably bigger - and an awesome speaker - but the problem again becomes footprint. 15" drivers...
  6. Look like KG 1.2's. Overpriced. I see them all day at $50. Someone had a pair in really nice shape here not too long ago at $80 shipped.
  7. If anyone does end up taking the system and doesn't have use for the Emotiva amp - or lives in town and wants to make a few extra bucks for the trouble - I am interested. @klipschlov is this a UPA-5/500 or...?
  8. The way the insulation is laid into the base of the speaker is such that it shouldn't move. If it does, you could add some simple adhesive, but I'd avoid this if at all possible. I don't know if they changed the bracing rule for insulation in the later generations - but at least as recently as 2004 - no insulation was braced.
  9. should be loose across the bottom, and the wire wrapped insulation should also be freeform (just wrapped around the wire). None of the insulation in any of the speakers I have (32) have the insulation braces or glued.
  10. Any of these things are good options. The lesson to be learned here is... 1. There are always a multitude of options. 2. New doesn't equate to being better. 3. Don't be afraid to buy a used product to save some money.
  11. I'd try for $50. If I remember right, it's either an 8" or 10" Synergy series sub (first generation). It's not a fantastic sub, but it's okay.
  12. There's these nearish you? Otherwise, I'd pay attention to eBay and frequently check Craigslist. P.S. you could always do both. haha
  13. The IIs are more elusive. That's a deal right there.
  14. You're protected by eBay and PayPals buyer protection though which removes risk.
  15. eBay. They come up often.
