Brian has mentioned a speaker he built for a "Grammy Award winning Producer" in a few posts. I find it likely that these are the special digital edition (SDE) RM-2 FST speakers Brian lugged (personally delivered and set up) for Grammy winning Producer Norman Dayron in 2008. https://www.discogs.com/artist/386812-Norman-DayronThe eBay seller is a tad confused on some of the specifics as yes those are Aurum Cantus GS2si's and same neo used in all the ribbon monitor (RM) series. IMO the seller's hyperbole about original selling price is total BS as is the desired price the seller mentions. These are posts about what I believe are these speakers. Also, think about this... Brian lugging those speakers to the guys home in 2008!"These are set up for tri-wiring. Was that the SDE edition? Mine have the AC ribbons, but only bi-wire.
Lol.Does anybody know exactly what model these are? And the time they were sold?
So, my guess is they didn't originally come with the Dayton amp. I'm assuming they have passive crossovers inside.Also, I would guess they are sort of bass equivalent to the Tower II speakers as the drivers are the same size?

Aren't those tweeters the Aurum Cantus G2Si?And yeah, the Birds-eye Maple veneer is one I have never seen on any VMPS and even with those bad picks you can easily see the flaws. Poorly done job and also not a quality level that I've seen to date.Just my .02.
VMPS Subwoofer Pair with Dayton SA1000 Amp - $1 (Monrovia)Insanely deep low end, the amplifier is very flexible and can be setup to either gently feather a little extra bass in there or absolutely part your hair. You know you need stereo subs and I need these out of my garage. Make me an realistic offer. Trades, whatever. I could use a preamp....Audio stuff.....anything https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/ele/d/monrovia-vmps-subwoofer-pair-with/7280879435.html
VMPS speaker full range ( look like standard RM-2 w/FST tweeters to me )VMPS Speakers Full Range. Condition is "Used".Wehave a pair of custom made VMPS speakers which were made for a Grammy AwardWinning Producer and are one of a kind. Here are some fine details on thebuild quality and driver topology: Cabinets: These areusing 1.5 inch MDF laid over a birds eye maple. The finish is a 10/10.The cost alone just for the veneer was $3,000. Standard speakers aremade with 3/4 inch MDF so these are double that. Tweeters: These arethe BEST hand made JVC ribbon tweeters and are the same as the $20,000 pairProac's and the ATC speakers Mid-range drivers:These are planar magnetic drivers made and are hand built magnesium frames tohold the ribbons versus sheet metal on the original ones. They were madeusing a spectro-graphic analysis. Woofers: These usecarbon-fibre 12 inch woofers; one active and one passive. One has a phaseplug driven by the air inside. Sound: We had thesesetup in our store with McIntosh MC1.25 amps with a Lumin X1streamer/DAC/Preamp and the soundstage was to die for. The sound is veryinvolving; similar to many $20,000 pair + speakers. If you are in themarket for a new pair of speakers costing up to $10,000 pair, these speakerswill be on your short list. The original owner paid $15,000 for this pair andthese can be yours for only $6500.00 pair. Offers will beconsidered. We will alsoinclude for free a Behringer Ultradrice Pro DCX2496 electronic crossover inwhich the original owner of the speakers used to tri-amp these speakers. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY ORYOU CAN ARRANGE FOR BOXING AND SHIPPING. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VMPS-Speakers-Full-Range-/363298964536?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
I would not have any issues purchasing those subs sight unseen. WRT your driver repair costs question, no idea. I have a pair of older VMPS subs and IMO they should be good for another 40 years. That amp is a mono amp, so you likely would need another. IMO the value of the subs are approximately $125 each and $250 for amp. Amp is in current production and is $419 new, but generally sell for $250 used. Another set being sold in TX asking $300 for pair: https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649682345-vsmp-subwoofer-pair/
