SOLD: FS: Acoustic Research 80-X Subwoofer 500w RMS 12" Walnut

Recommended Posts

Item: Acoustic Research 80-X Subwoofer 500w RMS 12" Walnut Finish
Location: Perth
Price: $800 plus shipping
Item Condition: Very Good
Reason for selling: Overkill for my modest 3.2m x 3.7m hifi room
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal as friend or 3%, COD Only
Extra Info:

In very good condition, just to large for my small hifi room and I no longer have a home theatre setup in my lounge room.

This is powerful but subtle at the same time. When setup in the room correctly you won't know it's there until it is required in the musical passages.

Has XLR/RCA & High Level Inputs

Volume/Crossover & 0-180 degree Phase controls

Front firing Port

It has a couple of very small surface scratches but you have to look hard to see them.

I have the original packaging so can ship at buyers cost, should be around $80 to major capital cities.

If you are a local buyer I will throw in a Black with Gold flake Marble Plinth which is rather heavy at around 20kg

 Not downgrading, I have 2 pairs of large 3 way bookshelves. 1 pair Bryston mini T's  with chunky 8" drivers that provide more than enough low end for the room size & then the other pair are Morel DIY's with 2 x 6" in series up to 800hz, again enough low end for the room size hence the reason the 12" sub is Overkill and no longer required.

I would also be interested in trading for a pair of RCA/XLR interconnects or digital Coax cable to equal value.
