I just scored the speakers I've been wanting for 32 years.
Funny how life works. Things seem to come to you when you have your mind focused on the article or circumstance you desire. I call it the "Red Cadillac theory. How often do you see a Red Caddy...well, almost never. But the second you decide you have to have one, they start popping up every where...passing you on the highway, driving by a bill board--you can spot one a mile away in a parking lot. THE POINT IS: there are no more Red Cadillacs now than there were before.
I have been away from the forum for the better part of a year, when I decided to pass by. Someone posted an "Audiogon" ad for a pr. of 4315's in great shape that just happened to be a local pickup (3hrs away)...Sold and delivered to my door for $1,500.
Sonically in immaculate shape. Drivers pristine. All four bass and mid drivers refoamed last September. Cross overs perfect with no static or dead spots. Physically, good shape a few minor scratches, grilles perfect. Consecutive serial numbers, one owner who had them stored for 20 years.
I am well aware there are better speakers out there and I have owned better JBL's but, I guess these are the babies that I could never afford when I was a kid, and I fell in love with their acoustic signature.
Thanks fellow member's...especially johnaec who posted the ad!
Only complaint--why didn't they mirror image these things...
