    Re: Boston Acoustic A150's

    he wants 400 for them...apperently they retailed for close to 2200 in 1983 when he got them lol. but i cant justify paying that much for 24 year old speakers. im also thinking that they didnt cost that much or he got ripped...ive been reading a bunch of archives about this series and in the more current market(06 ish) they sell for as low as 10 bucks and as high as 150 with full refoam/rebuild.

    all i know is they are about 6-7 inches deep, 18 or so inches wide and about 3 feet high. i beleive they are series II 3 ways obviously and have a seas 10" woofer. with Audax/Polydax tweaters...or something similar.

    anyhow, could i build or buy a better set of speakers for the money? (about 200 ish the max i would pay)

    any info even if it is just about how good/bad boston acoustic home speakers are would be sweet

    thanks

    Re: Boston Acoustic A150's

    alright well i made him an offer of 150. im awaiting to see if he accepts....i also just took a listen to my current speakers and realized how much better the boston acoustics sound than my sansuis that i picked up for 5 bucks at a garage sale many years ago lol.

    i also plan on getting a nice ht sub/amp to compliment these speakers. itsrealized how nice it is being able to hear the music not just some music faded out by retarted bass
