Here is your chance! PLEASE READ: the condition of these speakers and pictures are as described at time of auction. Remember.. these cones are nearly 50 years old! I pack extremely well. Please read my feedback. However, in a very small percentage of cases.. handling, vibration, and even installation by the buyer may result in small hairline cracks in the cone that can easily be repaired using the proper materials. I will not assume responsibility nor discount final sale based any damages that result once arriving at the buyer's destination. They leave my house in the condition that they appear in thse pictures. Are you an Overseas buyer and you want these reconed with fresh new cones by an experienced speaker reconer with a worldwide reputation? Please see the bottom of the page and visit the link of Ron Neal's Speaker Repair. I can arrange to have your speakers reconed if you wish by Ron and can include that in the final shipping price. Having said that I will aways disclose any flaws to the speakers at point of auction. Shipping for the continental US should be around $14 for a single speaker (These are heavy and well made) -- maybe slightly more based on packing and wieght. I will refund gross over charging for shipping once it is shipped out. Overseas and Canada shipping and outside Continental US will have to be figured out at close of auction after I weight package get a cost. However for overseas the prevailing rate has been at least $40. This will be well packed.. Play a piece of history with these speakers! One last addition. Sacramento is the home to one of the premier speaker restoration services in the continental US. I encourage you to speak to Ron Neal about any of your needs with speaker reconditioning. / He is an expert and has been doing speaker reconing services since 1955.
