Default FS: Adire Audio speaker system with sub

Iíve caught the upgrade bug again and Iím looking to sell my entire diy Adire Audio speaker system. It is composed of:

ē 2 Kit281 towers for the front w/carpet spikes (rear ported)
ē 2 Kit81 bookshelfs for the rear w/custom built stands and carpet spikes.
ē 1 85L ported Shiva, 250W powered subwoofer w/carpet spikes.

I also have a cabinet that I built for a Kit81C center channel but could never afford to order the crossover and drivers. If a buyer was so inclined they could order the kit from Adireís website and I would be happy to finish building the speaker for them.

I spent many months building this system and finished the speakers in cherry veneer with polyurethane. I designed and built the stands with internal wire channels, and theyíre each filled with a good amount of solid concrete; I would guess around 35 lbs. each.
The subwoofer is a custom down-firing design based on Adireís recommended 85L ĎAdire Alignment.í The base is easily detachable for access to the driver or for transport.
For the main tower speakers I moved the port to the rear for the sake of aesthetics with no affect on sound quality.
The speakers are in great shape (Iíve had them up and running for close to 7 months) and have reasonably high WAF with or without the grills in place. The system sounds excellent with home theater and quite good with music as well. The imaging of the Kit281ís is so good that I never felt the need to finish the center channel, though with more than 2 viewers you might want to for off axis listening. The Kit281ís are 4 ohm speakers which many receivers can handle but check to make sure yours is included. They are very neutral and revealing speakers and will give you out what you put in. For more reviews of the speakers I suggest searching at hometheatertalk.com; there are many owners who frequent there.
I have many pictures of the speakers on my website at http://students.washington.edu/gw2001/speaker1.htm

It cost me $1400 to build the complete system; Iím asking $1500 so I can say I turned a profit. Most agree they are worth a good deal more. This includes the finished center channel cabinet but not the drivers/crossover (available from Adire Audio for $179.)
I would prefer to sell them as a complete system and to sell locally if possible. Shipping would be heavy; the mains weigh around 75 pounds each and the subwoofer is ~ 100 lbs. It might be possible though if the buyer is so inclined.
It is also possible I could sell the components individually but my ultimate goal is to afford a pair of NorthCreek Rhythm kits.
With the sale of the complete system I will also include my SoundKing oxygen free copper speaker cables with Dayton Banana Plug terminations for the four speakers if so desired.
Thanks for looking,

George

The Front speakers and Sub are SOLD!!!
I've still got a pair of Kit81's with stands available and the center channel cabinet. I'm thinking $350 for the pair or $380 with the stands. Shipping is extra.

Thanks,

George
