    It'd be easier to tell us what is in the boxes.

    It sounds like a lot of value to trade for some C40's.

    C40 is a particular cabinet. Dearly loved by some, not considered very useful by others as it's a folded horn which brings out the best of some drivers and is not applicable to others. C40 tells almost nothing about what speakers are inside.

    I just picked up a C40, so I'll tag onto this thread with apologies. I have a 16 ohm D130 woofer, and I'm looking for a 175DLH tweet and an N1200 crossover. What kind of $$$ should I expect to drop, and is Jammin Jersey a good source?

    Thanks!

    Jammin Jersey IMO is way overpriced and over the years on this forum members have posted they get goofy when things go wrong.
    My own experiance with them is you have to speak to them over the phone even though they have a web site, and when you ask for pictures they ask "What For"
