Well, the ALIII's are gone, I finally got a reply from the seller.

I will post info on either set I don't purchase this weekend.

...and everyone is always welcome to stop by for a listen, once I have the Carver speakers in place!

Well, I will be picking up the ones this thread was originally started for tomorrow.

The guy who held the Audio Swap Meet picked up the AL III's.

The Silvers I looked at last night seemed a little overpriced:

Yeah I see there is some flipped magnets on that ribbon.

I think that is 2 magnets that popped loose (they are glued in)

But the old black ALS that still has a nice finish is nice just to look at.

I used to haul mine back and forth to Bob's in the original boxes in the back of my 4X4 and they fit in there perfect.

I had a magnet do that once

Thanks everyone! (too many to quote)

That was the positioning to get 'em in the door!

One of the magnets did shift during transport. I wanted to seek advice on here before attempting any fix.

I have a couple drivers that do need surrounds or replaced.

But, after talking them down in price again...

THEY SOUND GREAT!
