    I ran 3 of these with my front stage for years. Free bump for solid little amps.

    Suffice it to say I'm sure Alex is weighing how badly he needs a set of Marantz monoblocks for his setup :D

    What zip code? How far from Providence? I think I'm down for two of those ... maybe more. Somebody should do me a favor and snag these before I get back. At the very least help me cook up a story explaining to my girl what I need these for.

    How's Sunday look for you? Is there someplace on this side of Hartford that I can buy you lunch at? I'd like to keep my drive time under 4 hours if possible but if you'll take a low ball offer on all 6, I'll come to you. I gotsta get moving. I haven't figured out how I feel about this work thing yet but it's definitely not leaving me much time or energy.

    We can definitely meet somewhere around Hartford on Sunday.
    And what do you consider a low ball offer?.

    $450 for all 6. If I'm doing that, I'll come to where you are. You won't have to do anything other than take money.

    At your asking price I'll just take 2 and I'd like to meet around Route 6 and I-384, around Valley Falls Park. I've never been there but it looks like it might save me significant road time and hopefully won't be too much more than 30 minutes from you.

    Yeah...that's a low ball offer all right.
    I can't do that really.
    Maybe I'll put the rest on eBay and see what happens...
    So if you want 2 we can meet there (Route 6 and I-384). Unfamiliar area for me as well
    but I'm sure we can find a convenient spot.
    Let me know if you'll be coming Sunday and approximately what time.

    Perfect because I only really need 2. We can figure out a spot but I'm thinking that's around 1.5 hrs from 02861 and I'd give it 2 hrs and leave at 9:00 AM to arrive 11:00 AM ... or there abouts. I'll be back later. I can't get caught writing this.

    It's not SAFE !!! :eek:

    My gps has a pretty good estimated time of arrival. ... gotta go!

    Cue the Johnny Mathis Music

    It looks like another "highway rest area rendezvous" this weekend for Alex. [video=youtube_share;NEH3uqbpsm8]http://youtu.be/NEH3uqbpsm8[/video]

    Sounds good.
    I looked at the map and there is almost nothing there. Do you know a place to meet?
    A bit closer to Manchester CT there is at least Starbucks.

    We can exchange numbers via PM.

    Delete that if you can or would a mod blank that out?
