I have the Xover modification kits, bought on ebay. Just haven't taken the time to do it yet. Glad to hear they sound good, Peter

I managed a Radio Shack(#3934 Five Points Shopping Center in Carmichael, CA) from July '78 till May '80. I sold a ton of these. I was not always proud to sell only the Realistic line, but music lovers would come in and rave about the Minimus 7's. Damn good memories. BTW, I shook the hand of Charles Tandy 2 months before he died. He had a great passion for money....not for high fidelity, but for money. I pray to God every once in a while to live one of those 1978 days again. Smoking hot girl friend, 32 inch waist, great music in it's prime......
I have a pair in storage now that I bought to install in my new 1980 VW Rabbit with a NAK cassette head unit. I mounted them on the rear pillars with the optional wall mount brackets although they vibrated when scorching bumpy roads through the Santa Cruz mountains. Back then a 70HP Rabbit would pummel most American V8's on a twisty road and I had the best stereo while understeering through corners. My wife and friends hung on for dear life but we always had good music playing for a soundtrack (Supertramp!). Maybe I should dig them out and listen for fun and nostalgia. Wonder where I can find 'shrooms these days.
