Finding a new home for my…
« on: 16 Apr 2018, 10:55 pm »
I’m immigrating. The cost of shipping is prohibitive and means I have to sell my X-LS Encores and matching X-Subs.

Other than Craigslist and Facebook, where should I advertise?

I would start with the AC trading post for sure. I'd imagine you will take a beating on what you have into those. They really look great in the pics.
Where are you and what are you looking to get for them?

Hi Flavo
I'll take a look at the AC trading post, thanks.

I'm in Palm Coast, Florida. I've about $700 into the build. But I'm realistic, I know there's not much demand for DIY gear so would be looking for as close to $500 as poss.

Damn, those are nice. I'm not saying what you can or cannot get for the $ amount, but I'd suspect more than $500. They don't look DIY.

I imagine shipping to the West Coast would be expensive. Any clue how much it would cost to ship to 97035?

Are the XOs upraded or original?

Hi Danny, They're in Palm Coast, Florida.

Craigslist: https://staugustine.craigslist.org/ele/6561100743.html

My girlfriend also put them on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=Swip%20Swap%20Palm%20Coast%20speakers

Hi Mresseguie, the OX's are original (i honestly couldn't imagine them sounding better). I haven't looked into shipping elsewhere yet as I was hoping to find a local sale. I'll do a UPS calculation on 97035 and let you know.

As good ad they sound now they can sound better. I’ve listened to that speaker with the stock crossover, upgraded caps & resistors on the stock crossover, a point to point wired crossover with all components upgraded, and the point to point crossover with by-pass caps added.

Each one sounds better than the one before it.

Also, tube connectors are another upgrade that improves the sound.

It was a fully upgraded version that won a shoot out a few years back. I’m on my phone so can’t find the link right now. Maybe someone else can post it here before I get home tonight to find it.

These are seriously good speakers as they are and at $500 more than worth whatever shipping will cost. If nobodyelse buys them let me know.

 Why don't you just sell the subs and take X-LS's? They are small enough.

Not a bad idea Charmerci... hadn't considered that.

With some clever packing and hard luggage that could work.

There are audio societies that have regular meetings.  There's one up in Jacksonville and there's The Space Coast Audio Society.  You can Google them and get on the email lists and have your stuff circulated locally to more interested parties vs. something more general than Craigslist.
