Re: Addiction to buying Speakers strikes again, Was it worth it?

The foam is going to rot - period. The only impact of the cigarette smoke is a reduction of the time it will take. The good news is that it's a simple and inexpensive repair. The only 'cone and dome' speakers I have which haven't required my doing that (within 20 years of purchase) are the Klipsch Heresy II speakers that I gave my son ages ago (still miss the Belles) - pleated paper suspension avoids that issue.

Re: Addiction to buying Speakers strikes again, Was it worth it?

your right someone gave them to her as a gift and she just wants to sell them. I probably could of told her $50 and got them.. anyways, i'm going over there now to test them out. if they sound good i'll grab em, the bargain hunter negotiator in my wan't to offer her $50 if i wan't them just to see what she says, but i kinda feel bad if i do that, am i rippering her off and taking advantage of some lady that really needs money for bills or food or am i getting a deal from a lady you just wants to go buy some crack or something. i'll have a better idea when i go to her house, i can spot a user a mile away, is she's looking like she just want's to score i'm gonna get em for $50.

well i guess i'll report back after i test them out,

Thanks guys, i'm glad i bumped into this forum, everyone has been kind and curtious, i know a lot of the member get annoyed of someone like me, a newbie that asks a million questions, i'm just trying to learn and asking questions really helps. i've learned alot since i joined here.

As to my speaker addiction, i vow not to buy anymore speakers after this, until i get a proper Sub.

Re: Addiction to buying Speakers strikes again, Was it worth it?

I ended up buying the speakers, Boston Acoustic VR1's and a Boston Acoustic VRC center speaker. Also in the deal i got an Onkyo TX-SR505 receiver but the receiver has a bad Front left ch, it makes the speaker crackle.

I got everything for $30

I'm pretty sure the center channel is good, The VR 1's idk if there's something wrong with them or what.. sometimes they sound great, sometimes i swear i'm hearing a fuzz sound.

i was thinking to have them checked out by a proffessional and see what's up with them
