    The price you're asking Ian, is fair, based on what they retail for.

    And as you've pointed out, there are many much more expensive speakers in today's high-end market, but that doesn't stop the pricing being bonkers, IMO. That said, I'd rather have your JBLs than just about any other currently produced high-end speaker I can think of, as for me they tick the right boxes.

    Anyway, good luck with the sale!

    Thanks Marco. I understand what you mean about pricing, but I have a much bigger problem with cables and the like being sold for many Łk. At least with the JBLs you can see that they will have cost a significant amount to put together - by way of an indication, each speaker weighs 170kgs.

    Yes, I totally agree with that point. The JBLs are a true marvel of engineering, whilst mentalist priced cables are, well....

    170kgs, eh? That's crazy, and more than double the weight of my Lockwoods combined!!

    Marco, would your Lockwoods not be a similar weight to these later ones which weigh 80kg each before plinth, castors and handles:

    Yes, and what's 80 + 80? I think you'll find that it's less than 170...

    There's no 'plinth' with mine, as such. It's all integrated into the cabinets. TBH, when you lift the speakers, most of the weight comes from the HUMUNGOUS magnets on the 15" drive units!

    I am curious about the exact weight of your Lockwoods as I'm mulling over Townshend Bars for mine.

    I took "double the weight of my Lockwoods combined" to be 320kg

    Lol, no. Each speaker combined (at 80kg), not a pair

    In actuality, they may even be slightly less than that. The range, however, is definitely between 70-80kg each. The cabinets are *extremely* inert, though not super-heavy for their size.

    Cabinet design operated on slightly different principles in those days, but which when done well, as in the case of the LMs, was very effective as a whole.

    Shot by me. I really didn't like them. Much, much better speakers around. And I wanted to like them. Pretty brash sounding things at least with the ML electronics.

    Some people will like them, of course, but I have no idea why.

    Sounds probably like a mismatch for me, and being played far too loud... High-efficiency horn-loaded speakers like that need [top-notch] TOOBS!
