Default 1950s Electro-Voice speakers

I bought a couple of MC-30s at an estate sale and these monster speaker cabinets were included. Each contains a 15" woofer (EV - 15W), 2 horns (EV T25A & EV T35), 2 sealed crossovers and L-pads. They are really built well. And they work! I have all the paperwork and even a letter from Electro-Voice to the gentleman who built the systems.

I have taken several pictures and posted them online at Flickr. Here's the link. http://www.gefenproductions.com/mark/speakers.html

I don't have the room (translated - wife) to keep these monsters. What should I do with all of this? Build something with just the horns? Sell them? Throw it all away?

Definatly do not throw them. They are vintage speakers and some are worth loads.

I'd deal with that problem first, then worry about what to do with the speakers.

Wow, i've never seen EVs that shiny before... the cabinets will be no loss -- typical diy of the day, and probably too small for the driver anyway.

Those are in gourgeous condition and -- from the chrome -- likely the deluxe models available. Those will probably fetch some serious cash if you auctioned them.
