Picked up these Realistic 40-1245A speakers at Goodwill this weekend for $6. Cleaned up and sound amazing for the price!

These are a full range pa speaker ...for churches etc...not a hifi speaker per se

To be fair, sounding amazing for that price isn't setting the bar very high!

What's wrong with 6 dollars worth of sound?


GeneraalSorryPardon

Only six dollars? You're lucky! Second hand stores in my little town ask ridicolous amounts of money for any old audio gear.


Splashadian

Used gear where I live is always priced too high. People actually look and pay attention to the market here. Kinda sucks


ClerkZero

I think they need a couple more drivers.


zoinkability

I didn’t realize I needed these until this post. Damn it OP, you are not helping me wean off my audio gear habit!


bakesnorca

Haha well now that I have these I've gone from not having any Realistic gear to "needing to recreate a period correct RadioShack setup". So I feel your pain!


zoinkability

Ha, I’ve been fighting that exact impulse since getting a LAB 400

LAB 400... what's not to love! Curious, what cartridge are you using?


zoinkability

Stanton D71EE

Oo I found some kind of reverb unit for a dollar from this era by them I guess. Except it’s not actually reverb and a bucket brigade delay I think


QuirkyTurkey404

Curious, do these have crossovers?


LouisDeLeblanc

I'm always impressed by the great deals you can get at Goodwill. Nice find!

Other than a $24 Klipsch SW-110 sub, I never find good electronic deals at Goodwill. Maybe it's just the area that I live and their distribution because I do pretty well at other thrift store
