Cool huh? I had no idea Blues assembled home audio speakers...

I bet they were super expensive when new! Just judging by how much Blues woofers cost by themselves lol. Probably sound super nice though.

That's my old amp and it was the most inefficient POS I ever ran. It sounded great, but was in no way shape or form a good subwoofer amplifier as I was lead to believe by a certain someone!

Does this look familiar:

Just because they cost a fortune doesn't mean jack. The current BL10 uses the same stamped basket that the $15 Credence clearance OA10-4 uses (http://www.credencespeakers.com/Clearance_Corner.htm). Different soft parts, but same build house, Credence, and stamped basket. Just remember, Ray's minor was in Marketing! ;)

CRX, I can do $250+shipping on those. Packaging will be a *****, gas money would be involved, and I will need some return on them to help pay for my car. You paypal me $250, and I'll buy and ship them, then you can pay me shipping afterwards.

Even at over $300 (after shipping), it's a **** good deal. Each of those woofers sells right now for over $300 new...and it has 4 of them, two tweeters, a crossover network, and a cabinet that took time to properly design for all the drivers. I wouldn't be surprised if it sold for over $2500 new...

I dont need to prove anything, it is fact pure and simple. The shop I used to work at back in 94 used to sell those Blues subs ect, They were made by StillWater Designs the same people who made kicker and Mohaawk subwoofers.

LP had nothing to do with Blues when we were selling them, Maybe LP bought the company sometime ago and is selling new old stock. But the proof is in that ad, Made in Stillwater Oklahoma.

We used to sell a ton of Blues 8s and 10s they were cheap and fun to play with.

Also, why did you own so many LP amps if you hate them so much? seems rather counter-intuitive to me.

I was building up for an active install with backups, then when I finally installed the pieces of shіt, I realized that they ѕucked. Don't get me wrong, they did sound good, until I got downright abusive with the volume and watched them run out of steam. Also, many of the Ell Peez had unsolvable noise issues that were fixed by replacing them with something cheap like the Cerwin Vega EXL-400.4. Oh well, that's what I get for reliving my past and believing the hype.

Different soft parts, but same build house, Credence, and stamped basket. Just remember, Ray's minor was in Marketing! ;)

Credence has built some nice drivers over the years. I've been kicking around the idea of trying a 10RILD2 in my truck.

I love my 15" Earthquake Magmas too. They get pretty violent on 1,000 watts and I personally think they sound great.

I'd give them a shot if I had that kind of scratch, but that's just me. I'd love to own Arc SE amplifiers, and I've wanted a pair of $1,280 3-way components for over a year now. I would've bought them by now if I could've avoided the one **** situation after another scenario that has been my life recently.

It most likely is excessive & a bit stupid, though.

I'm not saying that Credence builds bad stuff... What I am saying is that the MSRP of $879.99 and $949.99 is a wee bit excessive for a stamped basket Credence 6.5 or 8 paired with a LPG tweeter, passive crossover, and Zobel network.

I wonder how much would blues charge for that rebadged $43 tweeter, if sold separately.

Email them and find out. I'm sure Ray would be more than happy to take your money with a smile! After all, that Blues sticker adds USACi Ess Que points that a regular, off the shelf LPG 25NFA just doesn't have! :D

Turns out that the tweeters are Mission tweeters (obviously not from the factory), and one is blown. No matter, as the cabinet is actually ******, which is highly surprising. I expected a MUCH better cabinet from such a high end company...It uses 1/8" plywood and vinyl instead of veneer *sigh*

All it's worth then is the woofers, which are worth a lot...

Worth =/= cost

that's usually learned the hard way in audio.

BUT, it is a lesson that once learned will STICK!

I feel sorry for those still wasting their money chasing an Ess Que pipe dream based on what some company's marketing department told them.

I've been sitting on a set of those Blues 6.5" for a number of years and haven't yet installed them. I would prefer they get used by someone who would appreciate them. What should they be worth in today's inflated but recessionary dollars?

If anyone has an offer my email is trilligs gmail com
