    Depends on the driver compliment and the model variant
    IF it's "C51-2" (with the lattice grille) AND it has one of the more desirable loads like an S7 an S8 or even a "001" I might consider it (condition and provenance would mean everything however)

    The plain Jane cloth grille D130 Apollo ("C51", no "2" suffix) was one of the more pedestrian versions and are not that rare

    You can still score "001" loaded Apollos for around $1,500-$2,000 A PAIR depending on condition

    Apollo was a box at which one time JBL offered 12 factory approved load options and adapter kits!

    Based on what you have said so far, the speaker is being offered at about twice what it is "worth" (assuming it's the base model, D130 only C51 box)

    The typical craigslist or ePay seller usually is not aware that all Apollos are not created equal (and again, it is ONLY a BOX not a "speaker") That's been my experience; they look on-line for an asking price, see a pair with a really fine load and then ask the same for their LE8, D131 or most commonly, D130 ONLY version

    Hope this helps

    Here is a much better deal for you.........go on Epay and type in L65 Jubal. They are in Santa Clara a couple of hours from you. They are not the 4333's but they are nice 3 ways and not the junk you are looking at now and they are a pair.
