Default so, how much ? ...

... for them?

" ... I have hound these used speakers: Pioneer CS-M751. ..."

My guess is that if they work at all, but have rough exterior, they would be worth about US$25 each ... but I would not have a problem paying US$60 for a good looking pair ... But NOT pay for shipping = US$100 by UPS Ground or so !! Yikes !!

But then, it would be into the work shop for some tweaking .... like maybe, better, healthier crossovers, and driver replacements ...

The box configuration would lend itself to a good, potentially great sounding set of mains ... but if they are more than a decade old, I would bet that the middie and bass drivers will have to be replaced.

( I here is what I did to some junk boxes: http://3dotaudio.com/waterputtyexperiment.html )

Just LOVE the terminals... Just where I'd put them too!

Anyhow, I bet they sound better than they look.

Default What to Expect From Them

I would expect hi SPL, lots of (distorted) bass, shrill highs, and a "singing" cabinet.

Since this is DIY, do you have any mods in mind for them?

Thanks guys,

They are $80 for pair. I think I will give up.

For close future I was not planning to modify them since I don't have time. Currently I am looking for something a bit old but sounds reasonable to connect to my Leach amp.
