For sale 2x The Original VMPS Subwoofers with the Megawoofer upgrade. Passive subwoofers with Brian Cheney's unique slot-loaded passive radiator design. Front firing 12" carbon fiber cone driver with wood phase plug wih a down-firing 15" passive radiator. Cabinets were refinished by a previous owner and grill cloth replaced. Look better in person than in the photos.

-THD no more than 0.5%, 22Hz-600Hz with 1W drive
-Sensitivity: 94dB/1W/1m
-Maximum undistorted output: 126dB/1m for 5% THD
-Driver Complement: bottom-firing, mass-loaded, slot-loaded 15" passive radiator, front-firing 12" polypropylene cone woofer
-Recommended crossover range: 60Hz-300Hz

-Internal wiring: Powerline speaker cable

The Megawoofer (same driver as used in the RM/X and VMPS's other top models) improves upon those specs.

Price is for both, but certainly up for a reasonable offer. May consider a trade for comparable value headphones.

Can hear set up with older Adcom equipment.
Full range sound with very high hz ribbon tweeters, Focal dome tweeters, 5” mid range, 12” mid bass, 12” woofer, 12” passive radiator bottom firing with front port. These are serious two channel speakers. Can bi-amp. Frequency adjustable mid, high, low.

Speakers VMPS  -  (Oakland East, CA)  $200

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ele/d/oakland-speakers-vmps/6947957778.html





"VMPS RM1 pair of speakers for sale. Very nice pair solid oak and mdf speaker cabinets from 1999. I am original owner. Oak in very good condition (might be veneer?). The ribbon tweeters and midranges still work, but the foam surrounds on the woofers and passive radiators are rotted out, and do not work properly. The 8" woofers (4) and the 10" down-firing slot loaded passive radiators need new surrounds, or they need to be replaced. (Not a project for me anymore...)
Crossovers inside, bi-wireable, adjusting pots for mid and tweeter. VMPS kit assembly instructions and schematic included.
These were great sounding speakers with great bass response. Somebody should fix these babies up and enjoy.
$200, cash only. This is a great deal on the nice cabinets alone."

"This is an improved (with the help of the late Brian Cheney) version of the $19,900 VMPS Super Tower III SRE (Special Ribbon Edition) speakers. The problem of limited vertical dispersion of the ribbon tweeters in the original version was addressed, per Mr. Cheney's suggestion, by adding a second tweeter. Later top of the line VMPS models addressed this problem by making the ribbon tweeter aimable. These speakers require three stereo amps and a three way electronic crossover. The amps are not included but a preconfigured Behringer DCX2496 crossover/DSP unit is, as well as a passive blocking unit using Auricap blocking caps to protect and properly load the ribbon tweeters. If you bring your amplifiers I can use my PC based measurement system and measuring microphone to dial in the DCX2496 for your equipment.

I have been in the high end audio business for over forty years and these truly unique speakers compare favorably to speakers costing ten to twenty times more. I know that is an outlandish statement, but serious buyers are welcome to audition and decide for themselves. Local pickup only with your crew. Each speaker weighs approximately 325 pounds."
