    I still have that one, and lucked into a similar 15, best score so far has to be my pair of rlp 18d2's though (for me at least) best musicality I have found for my ht thats still capable of subharmonic extension.

    Any partial trades on this motor?

    Looking for cash on this one, thanks Phil.

    Re: Big TC Motor!

    Are there threaded holes in topplate or only the sides?

    Has nice clean holes on top but no threads. I could tap them with a 10-24 or a 1/4-20 if you like.
