  • Pretend I died and my next of kin wants to sell speaker stuff in one lot cheaply

    OK, so it's not that I'm giving up speaker building, but I have a boatload of older drivers that I need to get rid of. I would like to sell everything. I'm not interested in cataloguing everything. Below is a partial list, along with pictures.

    Subwoofer cabinets. Nine, yes, nine. I think. See pix.
    PE 8" or 10" x 2 RS series subs
    PE 12" RS series sub.
    OLD version shielded RS225 metal drivers. 4 New in box unused. 4 just sitting there in an never finished dipole.
    Peerless 6.5" midbass too lazy to look up. Fairly distinctive from the pictures.
    morel 55's pair
    vifa xt18wh pair
    SS 13M/8636 pair
    SS 18W8535 pair (I think I bought these off SL long ago for $100 for the pair!)
    SS 8555 pair. (might keep)
    Philips RT8P (might keep)
    OLD style RAVENs
    Test cabinets
    A pair of transmission line SS 3/4" and GR research M130's. M130's need to be replaced, but actually not bad drivers. Has to be good, since I designed the xover ;)
    random audax tweeters with dinged metal domes. (I mean, hey, basically I'll end up giving all this stuff away if I can't sell
    There's an Outlaw Audio 2250? I think. Still works, but knob falls off all the time, dramatically decreasing resale value...
    There is one RS28F. I know I have another pair, but can't find it...

    The old RS with Lineum tweets, well, I just can't part with those, for sentimental reasons.

    The Paradigm Titans aren't really DIY, but there's thrown in there as well. At some point I was going to redo the xover, but never got around to it.

    What I really want is someone to buy the whole lot for what you think is a very low price. Pretend I died and my next of kin was dumping it all at an estate sale or something. No way I'm shipping, so local pickup. If you're really just interested in one or a couple of items and want to pick up, that's ok two, although I'll wait a week for offers on the whole lot before parting out.

    hope all you guys are well. Retiring in less than 3 years. Hope to pick up the hobby again with new drivers...

    Mark

    Local pickup only in Northern CA. (Rocklin CA)

    No reasonable bid refused. I'll even consider unreasonable ones...
    audioheuristics isn't around right now...

      Is it weird I was thinking of making an offer and driving 3,103 miles yesterday?

        I am in the exact same boat, just with less stuff than you. Built about 10 speaker projects, but then abruptly shifted to other pursuits... (building a smoker, then an electric guitar, and vintage amp clone, to my current MAME arcade gaming cabinet).
        During the speaker phase, I did over buy, with lofty project goals down the road, now stuck with tons, and not much desire to build anymore. I was cursed with relatives (all of them!) that literally had did not notice the difference between TV speakers, and a pair of Statements. .... other than, "bass is louder....". sigh. So i figured me toiling for a l00 hours to build them a nice pair of speakers, was like buying a Monet for Ray Charles....... anyhoo....... i need to offload stuff as well, and would hate to just trash em.

          Sometimes I'll think the speakers I built sound great and I'll listen for 20 minutes before I realize I'm listening to the TV speakers.
          Audiophiles are somewhat delusional (like most people) I've noticed. Actually I think being delusional is part of the human condition, if you will.
          Are you in MO?
          What do you want to sell if anything?

            I sent OP a message a month or so gao and didn't hear back.
            I am about 25 minutes from Rocklin CA
