Re: carver al-3plus

I stole my mint black AL-IIIs a couple months ago for $250....
It was a 500 mile drive, but I got a ride from a friend that was making the trip for his company anyway.
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

Do you mean the AL-III,s ...or the ALS,s...I was referring to the AL-III,s.....My better half said she liked the sound of the AL-III,s better then the ALS,s......Then she admitted that the AL-III,s looked better , that the ALS,s looked like car doors.... :shock: .....I have had MB quart,s ...Paradigm studio ref,s....Listened to M & k...Martin Logan's.....Ect....Haven't had the chance to hear the Polk SDA,s....Which I want to real bad..( the older ones )...But for me , the AL-III,s...even if I had to spend 1000.00 , sounded much better....So if you have a chance to pick up a GOOD pair, I would go for it......You can always sell them.....But I dont think you will...When I got the ALS,s for 1000.00.....Im still surprised they still go for that amount....Im still in awe of the sound....I may be a bit biased .

Re: carver al-3plus

You'd need to CAREFULLY lie them down (their heavy) on their side (or face if you put them on a couple of pillows or a couch/bed/ etc.) & remove the bottom panel with a LARGE phillips screwdriver (4 screws. You can use a drill-driver, but I'd be VERY careful & make sure you use a huge phillips bit.

Make sure when you put them back that you get the back 2 spacers in the recessed they set down into (tilts the speaker back slightly)

Re: carver al-3plus

My problem is that I have no one to tell me no more Carver equipment. I just keep buying and buying. I know I have OCCD bad! ](*,)
