They were pretty dusty, but they sure cleaned up nice! There were paint drips on both cabs and I wasn't sure how that was gonna turn out, but a little rubbing alcohol (chased immediately with a damp rag) pulled it right off! There are some minor dings on some corners and edges that you can see if you zoom a little, but all in all I'm pretty tickled how they turned out! I'm kinda motivated to try and re-screen the grilles now too.

Hey, how would this be for a first post?

"I'm having trouble hearing dialogue and I don't understand why. The more speakers I hook up the worse it seems to make it. Here's my setup. They're all parallel bi amped too. I'm thinking about getting a more powerful amp and another center channel. Will that work?"

I texted him back to tell him they work and work well. Mighta made an audio buddy. He's a Goodwill and pawn shopper, then sells stuff on CL. Seems like he's into vintage. He was proud of his $7 amp, lol. That's not a mocking lol either. If a guy can find a competent vintage amp that does what he needs it to do for $7 that's a score in my book.

That’s how I feel when I clean up dusty electronic stuff I acquired. Most of the stuff I’ve bought used have cleaned up real well and look almost new. Lucky fella KEF look/sound great. You finally did good at only 30 coins. Rah.

When I first started posting here I had just replaced a pair of B&W DM570s from the same production years as those Kefs and they did not sound this good at all, and I paid a lot more for them when I bought them in the mid 90s... :(

I just stumbled onto this sale as I've been looking for speakers for my HT setup.
25% off all Klipsch "production" speakers. They're accepting back orders as well, which is awesome of them
At least 8, IIRC... taped and tacked to a board nailed to the top...

Hmmm, where have I seen that before?
Just don’t overpower the Chocolately mids with to many super tweeters.

Found these. JBL speakers looks cool retro, JBL sub looks cool and Energy subs(150 Watts and goes down to 35hz) looks to be a Dayton 1200 for those on a budget. All great deals:

I can see it now, on the very same day you receive the new Towers, you leave them boxed to drive 37.5 miles to pick up a 6 pair of Super Tweeters to stud all your old speakers with... for $45 OBO. :D
