One of these days I’m going to cut you into little pieces.

The foam issue is also prevented me from seeries their full potential. Ideally I’d like them collected but if someone wanted them really badly we could talk about postage.
When listening to the Dl4 they sounded well balanced but the highs weren’t as natural as the Bostons’.

FS – Celestion DL4 Series 2, cheap as!!!
A real bargain for someone. Text reply Ron Main: They were a great speaker for their size. My first ever real speakers, spent many happy hours listening to them, they’re now gathering dust in the garage John. Do you already have an account?
