Legendary speakers found in many recording studios throughout the world in the 2000's. 

They are also a fairly rare model which we don't see very often (unlike the smaller brother the N802).

This set came to us from the original owner who took good care of them and even saved the original shipping cartons which is super rare and necessary to properly ship these heavyweights.  

On the test bench and in the listening room these passed with flying colors throughout the entire frequency range.  All drivers and crossovers are working to perfection. Condition is super good with no noticeable scratches or dents - even the grills are perfect.  

One thing we noticed in the listening room is that these are most definitely full range speakers and have a tremendous ability to fill the room with bass.  They will not work in a small room unless you are a freak for bass and want to rattle your fillings. 

Includes the speakers, grills, and cartons, nothing else. 

You will need bi-wire speaker cables - but if you don't have any we can supply them, or make you jumpers so you can use single wire cables.
