Default Speakerlab S 50's, Anyone?

Anyone have a pair of Speakerlab S 50's they want to sell? I am looking for a pair. I have the smaller 30's which I use as subwoofers due to the Nestorovic system. I would like the 50's as a playback alternative to my Bohlender ribbons/30 Subs. Let me know. Thanks!

I was able to find a pair for $1,000 but the midranges need to be replaced for $130 (for the pair). Does anyone think this is too high or a good price?

Thanks,

Ed

OK, you got me. I just assumed given the Speakerlab name and appeal they had in the 70's and 80's, almost any enthusiast would know the product. Especially with its integration of Nesterovic in this particular speaker's design. I will try and dig up some pics. Not much out there as far as specs though.

Thanks,

Ed

I found the following description on another site's post:


These speakers are 5 foot towers, with a 12" woofer, 10" driver, 6 1/2" poly mid, 6" dome tweeter and 4" high frequency ribbon unit. The units weigh 200 lbs each, have 3 decibal settings [2 switches] for the mid range and each tweeter. 2 sets of posts are included, along with a setting switch for Bi-amp or full range use. The rating on the units were for 300W RMS.

Found another pair for $1,500.

So, again, anyone think this are fair prices for these speakers? I own the 30's but have seen them on EBay usually closing at around $500. The differences between the 30's and 50's is the 12" woofer and the 4" ribbon instead of the dome tweeter. They can also be bi-amp for high and low. I am thinking the $1,000 is maybe more inline. As a side note, there where only 75 pair made.

I did find a pair, but I think I got a "song and dance" as I was told they got destoyed by a freak accident before selling them to me and after we agreed on a price. I think they found someone who offered more. I am still in the market!!!!!!!

Sithlord,

I'm sure with 2008 speaker technology you could build a superior sounding speaker for $1500-$2000 plus some education and sweat. You could even try the latest dipole trend or build your own ribbon tweeter.
