Hmmm... Maybe DaveS can chime in here.

That`s the way they should look, FLAT. The crinkled ones have a dent every 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch. Yours look fine. http://www.carveraudio.com/index2.htm

Perry, just saw the pictures of those speakers you got. Wow I really missed out on that one. $500 the deal of the year. Oh well that's what I get for living on the other side of the country. My deal certainly doesn't look that good as you probably saw by the pictures I posted. Art. P.S. All that and the boxes too. Those things are as rare as hell.

Sure Gary.....original boxes, all original styro packaging, original blue polythene covers.
I'll post some pics tonight.

The boxes have the ser #(0758L &0758R IIRC) and the date.....1987 on them, I think.
All from the original owner and the sticker of where they were shipped from Ontario

There was only 2 blemishes....one of the feet had come out....fixed that in 10 min.
The other was a pin hole that came from a dart his wife threw at a party. Its about
2" below the bottom of the ribbon. Besides that they were mint.
I think the guy really needed the $....he didnt want to part with them.

They really are almost in new condition.......thats why I was so worried.
