Infinity Studio Monitor 150's Worth Salvaging?

I saw a pair of these in average cosmetic condition. On one the tweeter was missing on the other one a midrange driver speaker was thrashed. Couldnt find any info on them in Orion.


Should I rescue them?

Those Blue Book values are either wrong, or for one speaker only. The military BX's sold those when new, and a pair in there was $579, so I'm thinking MSRP on the outside may have been $550/speaker.

In any event they were absolutely terrible. 15" ported woofer, in a tall cabinet that was so flimsy in construction, you could rock it back and forth with your pinky. The SM-80 8" two-way wasn't bad, as was the 10" three-way, the SM-100. They cheaped out on the cabinet bracing (among a bunch of other things) when they got to the SM-120 and 150, and it sounded like it.

Thor may be right about that SM series being good rock speakers. Distorted rock would be helpful.

SM-150

They are talking about the SM-150's that I had.
Bought them for $25 and sold them for $80. Don't feel bad,
they gave me a hard time also.
