For sale down the road.
Just wondering if they're good or not, and a fair price?

I had their big brother the 200. I thought they were great rock speakers. Still have some parts lying around I think. Be careful with the super tweeter, they are usually fried and largely unavailable.

I bought two pairs of the 200s when I was in Okinawa back in the mid 80s. They are above good. Matched up to a 200 watt SS amp and sit back and be prepared to have you guts kicked in. They are definitely ROCK speakers.

PM-C stands for: Poly-Mica Composit I believe.

Way way over priced. Market value for all four should be 200ish at the most.

Geez!!!!! If you came back and said a few hundred dollars for a set of four, I'd still think he was out of line! I could see up to $150 per pair, just by watching recent CL ads. Some people are just clueless...

Are they lined with gold or something? 1200? What is this guy on! I'm sure he'll enjoy those speakers for many years to come

He's old and retired and in a nice house. Either he doesn't need the money, or he REALLY needs the money.

Well, if he REALLY needs the money, then he doesn't set an unreasonable asking price. I NEEDED some money last year and sold my M1 Garand in great condition with a Pelican case, some rare accessories, and a few bandoliers of Greek ammo... and, it had a serial number that lined up with production right around the time of Pearl Harbor. I thought it was cool to think of it rolling off the assembly line in response to the Japanese attack, then serving several years in combat!

Anyway, I needed cash, so I priced it and sold it for a grand within a few days. It was worth about $1300-1500. I WANTED to keep it, and would've been happier pricing it at $2000 and not getting any takers. The high price means he doesn't "really" want to sell them.

Not bad speakers but not for that price. They were sold by AAFES for the military and must have gotten on these shores by that route.
