Post FS in Los Angeles: pair of studio main monitors, and also Tannoy T12 ($200, firm)


So I picked up a pair of studio main monitors (the kind that are soffit mounted in-wall, that have a virtually unlimited dynamic range, etc.) for stupidly cheap off eBay locally. After picking them up (they're huge, so had to make two trips with my small car), I realized I really don't need them, and they don't even fit in my room...

3 way
cast-frame 12" pro-sound coaxial
cast-frame 15" woofer (looks like EV) in a ported enclosure
very nice looking crossover, and have one spare crossover to go with it

One coaxial has a rip in it, and the woofer in the OTHER speaker, also.

Box is plywood, well made, braced. Heavy.

Dimensions are about 36" across (or vertical) x 24" high (or across), by 24" depth.

I also picked up three Tannoy T12 PA speakers (but I'm keeping one), all with the high frequency elements not doing so well. These are high-sensitivity, coaxial, pro-sound speakers with a really nice trapezoidal baltic birch ply box, with 4 ports, tuned to around 65 Hz. Factory spec sheet here:

Factory specs:
70 - 25kHz
200 average, 800 peak power handling
97/100db sensitivity, anechoic/half-space
120db AVERAGE spl maximum, 126 peak (these would make GREAT midwoofers in a 3 way)
8 ohm impedance
1.5kHz 2nd order crossover
38.7 liter enclosure, Speakon connector (with a pass-through for parallel)
~ 20" x 15" x 15"

Want to get rid of everything for $200, definitely local pickup only.

Let me know if you have questions,

Exclamation also have...

a Dayton MCA2550D 2.1 class-D amplifier for a small 2.1 system.

Power output is 50WRMS @ 4 ohms for sub, 25@8ohms for satellite)
Fixed high-pass around 240 Hz per this:
MCA2550D 2.1 Amplifier mistake in specs or bad design - Techtalk at Parts-Express.com

Specs here:
Dayton MCA2550D 2.1 Channel Class D Amplifier | Parts-Express.com

Asking $80 if locally picked up. Only tried it for a few minutes out of the box, has never been screwed into anything; no marks on it whatsoever.

Also a Carver Pro ZR1000 class-T (Tripath) pro-sound amplifier with the factory fan replaced with a quiet one by the dealer. Purchased new for around $900, best sounding amplifier I've ever heard, period. Asking $350. 225/350 RMS @ 8/4 ohms. Binding post and Speakon outputs. Can throw in one pair of 12 gauge 10 foot Speakon cables with the amplifier.
