    Seriously, though, think twice about what you're doing. You might be able to get a nice price for them, but it's unlikely you'll be able to get something better for the $$$ you receive. If you're just selling them for the $$$ and not to replace them, that money will soon be gone and so will your speakers.

    Of course, many of us have been in situations where we needed $$$ more than hi-fi gear, so if it's an emergency sale, we're hoping for the best outcome. I can't put a market price on them because I don't think I could ever sell mine.

    The Revel C32 is less than 8.5 inches high. I use it with my LSR 32's for watching movies. You could make the xpl140's your rears.

    There's one in cherry now at Audiogon.

    O-rings?

    I looked, didn't find any solutions... Any fixes for mid and tweet grill o-rings?

    Super glue will bond Buna-N o-ring material very well. Buy some bulk o-ring cord of the diameter needed (link has selection menu for cross section size) and cut/glue to length.

    There are standard o-ring sizes, but the ones made from smaller cord don't get very large OD-wise.

    I think the ones behind some of the driver mounting flanges were silicone. You can glue silicone o-ring cord with RTV silicone - it's not super strong, but it'd hold together good enough to get the driver mounted.

    A better glue for silicone rubber is Loctite 414. There is a surface prep you can brush on prior to using the 414 that increases the bond strength. I don't remember the model number, but if you need to glue silicone, contact Loctite tech support and they can give you the part number. These are industrial products and not hardware store items, but you can get them through distributors like RS Hughes.

    Man do they sound great

    Those XPL140's I picked up for my project really do sound great! Almost too good to waste on this project - A L M O S T. Going to make a badass center speaker.

    Thoughts

    Does any one buy XPL140a cabinets and grill cloths? Seems a shame to waste...

    JMHO but you should really try to find another alternative. It's a shame to take a rare and perfectly good pair of speakers and gut them. At the very least keep the cabinets until you know for sure the center channel works out so if it doesn't the pair remains intact. Use them for rears and find a center that works with the XPL-200'S

    Post them in For Sale, with pictures. If anyone's going to buy them, this is the place I have a pair of XPL-140's with bad cabinets, I just don't know if I like them enough to do anything to improve them

    XPL 140 used as center channel.

    A 2245H in a 226L box has been added together with a minidsp 10x10. for subwoofer and bi amping of the XPL200.
