these speakers are being offered for LOCAL PICK-UP only. They are too
heavy and large for me to ship, and I would not know how to anyway. On
the other hand, if someone interested in these speakers can make their
own shipping arrangements I will be happy to cooperate. I will make
myself available for the shipper to gain access to the speakers when
they come to pick them up. But that is all I am able to do with regard
to shipping these speakers: please don't email me to ask if I can
recommend a shipping company, or if I can pack them before your shipper
comes to get them. If you are interested and are going to make shipping
arrangements, I mean just that: you must make all the arrangements,
including packing; you must contact a shipper and contract their
services for your needs. I will absolutely not get involved with any of
it: like I said, if you make the arrangements and purchase the
speakers I will happily be waiting when your shipper arrives at my door
to show them the way to the speakers. But that is all.
once again, these speakers are definitely available for LOCAL PICK-UP
and demonstration. I may also be willing to deliver these speakers
locally in the Tri-State area up to a certain number of miles; if you
are interested in these speakers, you would have to contact me to
discuss it. Also, I may be willing to meet someone part way of the
distance, but, again, you would need to contact me to discuss it.
FOR SALE: Pair
of Legendary AR 9LS. This pair is about as fine as you are going to
find. Surrounds professionally and correctly done to a tee, see
pictures. Bass is incredible, and all drivers in beautiful condition.
These are definitely full range speakers with a 3db down point at 28Hz
and flat response out to 32kHz. There are few speakers out there new or
old, regardless of price, that can match the defined bass response of
these legendary ARs: usable response is all the way down to 18Hz. But
Bass is not only what they are about: The four way crossover with 8"
upper bass/lower midrange driver, the 1.5" dome upper midrange driver
and .75" high range driver (tweeter) insure that the entire audio
frequency spectrum is smoothly covered with exceptional accuracy and
detail: all music, from Classical, Jazz, Pop/Dance, Rock/Hard Rock,
Grunge, Reggae, etc.,etc., to whatever, sounds right on these
speakers. Amplification requirements should not be a problem either:
They can be driven to listening levels with as little as 25 watts RMS,
yet handle outputs of 400 watts, and beyond.
and by the way, did I mention the cabinets and grills, no.....not
really. Why.....you ask? Because they are in excellent shape: again,
search high and low, and you are not likely to fine these speakers with
cabinets and grills in better shape. Are they perfect? Probably not:
but, again, they are pretty darn close to it.
can view the 20 or so pictures of these speakers I took to see what
they look like: I will tell you right now, if you think they look good
in the pictures, they look even better in person.
more thing: these speakers weigh about 120 to 130lbs, so they have
casters on the bottom to move them about. Believe me, it really helps.
The casters do not affect the sound or compromise the cabinets in any
way, but if you would not prefer to have them there, they are easily
removable. Yet, as far as your back is concerned, well....don't say I
did not warn you: these speakers are h-e-a-v-y.
Finally, these speakers will come with their original owners manual and AR brochure.
