Carver ALiii woofer pair for sale - refoamed, excellent

Post by indyaudio » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:18 pm

I am selling the original woofers from my ALiii speakers. After reading TNRabbit's posts, I purchased the Infinity Kappa Perfect 10.1s and did the upgrade (woofers only, not touching the crossovers....yet:)

As far as the speakers go, I am the 2nd owner, and as the story goes, original owner actually won them in a competition with radio control planes on a guide wire that dog fight, sponsored by Bob C himself. Some of you "vintage" guys probably know more about this event from back in the day. The competition winners were awarded a Carver audio system. My accomplished seller also won another system and had a set of Amazings as well to prove it!

Last year, I purchased the speakers in near mint condition and the owner had just refoamed the woofers. I enjoyed the overall sound, but the upgrade was calling my name.

I don't need these original woofs and TNR suggested some of you may want/need them, so happy to sell to a member and they will help fund my never ending quest for more power and clarity.

Make me a reasonable offer and they are yours. I will carefully box and ship out UPS. I will take Paypal or am flexible if other payment arrangements are preferred. Let me know if any questions. I can take some photos and post or email, thanks for the interest.

Hehehe, my wife surprised me and brought me lunch..... at which time I informed her that I made a new audio friend who I was going to visit to demo some speakers. After she rolled her eyes #-o, her first question was "These aren't for sale are they"..... I laughed said no, and said and guess what, this time he's local (last time she went to demo speakers with me it was a 3.5 hour trip each way [-X [-X ](*,) ](*,) )

She was slightly more happy about that \:D/ \:D/

Indy, I took the liberty to remove your e-mail addy. I hope you don't mind and I'm sorry for any delay in getting it removed. I don't read every post and I just ran across this thread today. Merry Christmas!
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
