Rosewood veneer. Sonically they sound great but have some aesthetic issues. One grill, the other is missing. Some small dents in the cones and modest blemishes in the finish. Will consider delivering a reasonable distance for the right price.

I have some rockets with driver issues. Do you have the part number by any chance?

Thanks

Thanks Sandbagger. I had EQ wizard and still have a microphone to measure response. I suspect the driver imperfections won't have a big impact on sound. If I get bored over Christmas break I might do a few measurements to see.

TRANSPARENCY UPDATE AND PRICE CHANGE: New price $175

I just took a closer look and all of the woofers have some damage including one of the Vifa tweeters. They have been in a closet in my basement for a number of years and I've been using ONIX Mini Stratas as primary speakers so I didn't notice the damage until a few minutes ago.

I live in Havertown and am flexible on pricing considering the driver / tweeter damage and modest damage to the Rosewood veneer. I have REW and a measuring MIC but haven't plotted a graph yet. I suspect that AudioCircle buyers you would not use this pair for critical listening. If so, these could offer good value for the right buyer and right application. I have snapped a few more pics and have uploaded to the for sale thread to be as up front







 as possible. Thanks for the consideration.

Putting these up for sale again. Everything from before still applies. Would be willing to drive up to an hour for the right price.
