Carver AL-III for sale - Seattle (Eastside)

Post by christur » Sun Jul 18, 2010 10:14 pm

I'm moving and these won't fit in the new home, otherwise I'd keep them forever. They are later AL-III units maybe AL-III plus (how to tell?) as the ribbons are the "crinkled" kind from the Amazings silver and platinums. The units are in good shape and sounds fantastic - feel free to audition. They've seen light use as mains in a home theater. The foam got old and needed to be removed. There is a decent dent in the oak in one of them, but tough to see from 6' away. The MDF is also peeling a bit on the top of the woofer enclosures. Both defects are pictured. I need to sell these in the next few days or they will move with me and probably end up in storage, which would be sad. PM / email me if you're interested. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY!

Asking $450 for both to get them moved.

Thanks!

Chris

going to go and pick these up today...... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
listen to them last night, they sounded good. but one of the woofers has issues....
no big deal, will try and fix it like I did the other one I gave away, :-#
think the spider came unglued, not to hard to fix.....

going to use these as rears so the subs dont have to drive very hard.....

as we sat there listening I could see that the seller was having second thoughts :? :? ....
which I understand.... 8)
I asked are you sure you want to sell them?.....
listening to them, I was undoing the deal, as he said they sounded so good, and may not be able to replace them....
he need a bit more time to think on this. as too, did he really want to sell them....
no problem for me...nice ride there anyways...
but got the email letting me know I could come pick them up..... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Enjoy them Mike! As I mentioned, it's good to know that these are going to a "good home." And thanks a great 'final audition.'

Thanks!
