  • Floor Standers For Sale

    I am finally moving on from this project and am parting with my beloved Bubinga veneer speakers. There are a three way design but I do t recall all the driver brands used. The mid ranges are MB Quarts. The veneer has held up great since I built these about a decade or so ago. There are no real scratches, dings or dents to speak of.

    The performance of these speakers only really disappoints me in the low end. The upper range has quite good sound stage and imaging. I was going to try some different woofers and or some internal cabinet reconfiguration but life has since gotten in the way.

    $500 with local pick up in West Islip NY. I will deliver up to 50 miles on Long Island.

    I do have a custom wood road case built for these if you want them shipped via freight. I suggest freightquote.com. To look up rates. I’ll get the measurements of the road case and see if I can get the weight.

    Local pickup can have the road case if you want.

          I listen to the midrange on an almost daily basis out in my garage. I modified it to have a larger rear chamber - I lost some low end extension in the process, but gained a much easier to manage impedance peak.

          Those are some great drivers - I imagine Madisound did the crossover? If so, they used to fail to include sufficient compensation for baffle step losses - that might be contributing to the lack of low end satisfaction. Those woofers are very capable of playing low. Might be worth re-visiting the crossover. They are beautiful speakers and if I was in a position to do so, I would have them headed my way already.
          Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

            Madisound did not do the design and I often thought they crossovers did need tweaking. Regardless these need to go to make room for the Sonus Faber Olympica III’s that are on their way.

            im hoping they don’t end up in my fire pit.

              They seem interesting, but unfortunately, they are 5.5 hours away. Hopefully, they don't end up in the firepit.

                Here is a picture of the shipping road case. It’s 115 pounds. I’ll get the speakers weighed shortly.

                  Shipping weight 295 pounds (including road case).

                  use freightquote.com to calculate shipping from 11795.

                  I am willing to drop off at any freight depot within 10 miles. If you pick up from freight depot you save a bunch of money.

                  calculate your shipping costs and make an offer.
