    The back was scratched, but they sent a replacement Barry, so all is good.

    Hope the sale completes ok and the buyer does not muck you around Geoff.

    Fingers crossed. The buyer has good feedback.

    Just bought these KEF Q3 cabinets off ebay for a bit of fun. It'll allow me to test some drivers I have knocking about.

    Don't care about originality on these as long as they work.

    Finally got these done. Sounding very decent actually. I seem to have mislaid two driver mounting screws, I'll rummage for replacements.

    Yah!
    When you've checked them out and found out how good they are you may want to slow the fan down to make it quieter.
    Wire a 180 ohm resistor in series with the fan. The case splits left and right btw.
