That is a very rare offering in this part of the country. I was just talking about Belles yesterday

My only regrets involve the things I DON’T embrace when fate shines it’s light on me.

 

These would be right up there on that list if I were less than tank of gas or so away.

 

Worst case scenario, you sell them for what you paid after you take them for a test drive.

 

Anybody making these anymore...?

Great statement. I have experienced that before.

"Work perfect, sound great. 12" Woofer, midrange and tweeter horns. "

 

A custom build? lol

 

Love the looks of the Belle.

@wvu80 what have you got on these? Asking you nicely. I may put in a reasonable offer. I do not have an inch of space to put them, and may have to find a new wife, but I am afflicted. Admitting you have a problem is the first step.

 

Never mind, I picked up your spreadsheet on another thread. Thanks again.

Stack something up, throw out the bed or dressers (they're over rated).

Easier to find than Belle, and you can control the volume knob on the Belle.

Yes, from there you fix it or accept it.

1996 was the first and only time I had seen and heard Belles in person when they were actually available for sale. The impression they left me still remains. They did not follow me home then, as I was into car audio at the time, and lived in a 600 sq ft. lake cabin. Now I can not help but wonder, should I do what Jill did on the other thread and buy a house they will fit in because they won't fit here now?

 

Actually in all seriousness I could fit them in, but the center channel would need to go. Run with phantom center, Belles front LR with 300 watts each, rears Chorus II with 150 watts each. I could even pay for the Belles with the sale of my Chorus II and Forte II. Not actually sure that is a come-up though, financially, or acoustically. Then there is the challenge of finding a compatible sub. Oh, the first world problems continue.

You rotated that pair of speakers so you could take a picture of both sides of your truck?

I can build you the cabinets but your on your own for the drivers and crossovers!  lol  Would be hard to source any K-500 horns so might be best to go 2-way with the Faital driver/horn combo.

And rotated the background 😉

 

I keep meaning to put mine back in rotation. Haven't heard them in 2 years.

😄  That cracked me up! Grab a fifth for a Belle HT.

 

What kind of DIY sub is that to the left?
