@nobel100, Yes, LOL. My dear god, that is a f$%#ing fantastic deal. It's more than 30 hours round trip in my car. Besides the amount of time, the biggest hurdle would be my wife's approval (WAF :( ). I think I would need to convince her that I would sell my dad's fly rods to make up for the cost, or somehow get creative with that, but I am gonna see what I can do. Are you AKA hikmer the seller over on the listing site?
Also, I assume these are the latest iteration of the 3A's? There are no other updates?
No, I'm not AKA hikmer. I was just having a little fun and messing with you.
But I was struck by how quickly exactly what you were looking for suddenly appeared for sale and at under your expected price, almost like you had a guardian audio angel. It really is a great deal at $2,800 and you have the travel costs leverage to get it for even less.
It seems a shame to let a fortunate coincidence like that just slip away.
I know if you really want the speakers, you'll figure it out and make it happen somehow. You could always fly out and rent a nice SUV for the ride back. Take your wife on a small vacation to Newport Beach for a short stay at the Newporter hotel. Live a little and have some fun!
Hi bstatmeister, I have the 3a sig, pair of 2wq subs and m5hpb ("b" for balanced xlr version) high pass filter combo that I put together over time. I can tell you that the 3a sigs are full range without the subs, rated down to 26 hz I believe. They sound great on their own. The subs with m5hpb crossovers not only adds the last bit of deep bass but because of the way they are implemented with the crossover between the preamp and amp/s they improve the sound of the main speakers by removing the bass load starting at the amp/s, in fact as mentioned this combo gives about 90% of what the 5a has and can be assembled as funds allow. You can even add one sub at a time. The 5a’s are more elegant solution with 2 boxes instead of 4 however. The 5a’s are basically 3a sigs 2wq’s combined in one box.
Personally I’m sold on the time and phase correct concept. I wish more company’s would pay attention to it.
And ya that listing for the whole package is a fantastic deal! Good luck with your choice.
