Re: WTB- ALS III BLACK FINISH

TN Rabbit would know but I think he's on vacation. I would think that ALIII's would have to be dismantled to ship. The ribbons in a box, the wood towers in a box, and the bass enclosure in a box. All would have to be well padded. You are going to spend ALOT on shipping with a fairly good chance that something will get damaged in the process. Any one else have any ideas??? :-s

Re: WTB- ALS III BLACK FINISH

IMO, you would be better off with a weekend road trip. Up one day and home on the next.

Though this does remind me of a road trip from Pittsburgh to Chicago beemers417 and I did. It was about 70 less miles and we did it in one day. It was a long day but worth making sure everything arrived in one piece.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Re: WTB- ALS III BLACK FINISH

Agree with road trip. That way you can inspect and then listen to make sure ribbons are good.

Re: WTB- ALS III BLACK FINISH

I'll add a third afirmation to going to get them.

I had to rent a van and make a weekend out of it but there was no way to ship them.

In the long run its the best way to go.

Agreed...take a trip if you want them, or wait for something closer.
