LOL. Could be a bargin though - the tweeter won't be too dear to replace. Can't understand why the seller doesn't fix it - unless there are other issues...

why would the cleaner be sweeping a carpet? Sounds suspicious.

Also, why not just replace the tweeter and then sell if the damage is isolate as the seller claims.

I would be cautious with this one:dunno:

 

It Cost How Much!?!

You couldn't be more wrong, if my memory serves me right one tweeter is more than £600.

Looks like revenge to me ..... my guess is he got caught with his broom handle in someone else's tweeter :?

I did ask the seller if he would demo them, this was his reply

"These were working in my old apartment - however if you need me to demonstrate they work I won't be wiring them up I'm afraid. I don't mean to sound curt but I'm selling my old system and want it hassle free sale."

Just so I am clear on this - your car has a tube (that's vacuum tube as in a thermionic valve) amplifier installed in it?!?! :?
Its got tubes, they glow and it sounds lovely.

I remember hearing a spectacular Kondo in car system with valve mono's in the boot. All silver wired. A bit too realistic actually, to the point of being distracting when driving. :shock:

Hideous interior treatment, but that gear lever looks familiar. Escort?

Alcantara isnt cheap, but it looks lots better in person, as many things often do.

Surely the inside of a car is no place for valves? i mean with all the vibrations surely the microphonics would be horrendous - or is it all for show when the car is parked up? :dunno: Not to mention the lack of ventilation?

I don't think any of those would fit this particular sonus faber model. They might "work" but they are the wrong shape to fit into the front baffle.
Surely SF just fit their own custom fascia to the std tweeter? Maybe that is where the expense comes into it...
