Looking at picking up these speakers. Does anyone have any experience with these or have any other suggestions of what to get for around that price. I'm going to be powering them with a MTX Thunder 502 amp which says:

RMS Power measured 12.5 Volts DC
90 watts X 2 into a 4 ohm load
180 X 2 into a 2 ohm load

Dynamic Power measured at 14.4 Volts DC
125 watts X 2 into 4 ohm load
250 watts X 2 into 2 ohm load.

How soon do you need a set? Im getting rid of mine soon, not looking for much. I can even send them in for warranty so you'll essentially have a brand new set. Im looking for 105 shipped. However, it wont be for a few weeks.

Prolly 2-3 weeks. They sound amazing. Im not just saying that because I own them but simply because they do. Do a search, you can see for youself, best compy set under $3-400 dollars. Im only getting rid of them for a change, just to try new things out. If your interested, let me know and I'll send them back this weekend and can give em to you as soon as they come back. I ran 300 to a side,crossed at 90 hz and they loved it!!

scotsman, sent you a pm back, the ball is rolling for your order.

fyi- we only have 1 set left on our shelf and it is spoken for. and our distro only has 5 left for all of northern cal. i don't know what crystal themselves has in stock. if ROE is waiting for crystal to have another batch ready, then there might be a backorder period coming for us too.

I got a pair, just waiting for my replacement single midbass and single crossover to show up...factory defects are not cool.

When you get yours, open both crossover covers, look at the lower (larger) inducator coil (copper round piece if you don't understand what that is) and see if it secure to the crossover board, because when I got mine, the glue had come off and it was loose. Just a recommendation before installing.

yours are good to go.

i don't know anything about ROE. if they/ there is a real dealer who is selling there. so i don't know their b/o reason.

months back, we did have to wait on B/O for crystal to have another batch. i don't know if that's the case for ROE or not. just giving people a heads up, that if that is the case, then we will run out soon. and if that happens, i will not have anyone send me $ until i have stock again.
