Just an update to my post.
i now am in posession of them, and after a trial run with a variety of music played through them i reckon they handled pretty well and sound clear as a bell and bassy as anything. they for sure have impressed me for the sheer size of them being only 260mm(H)150mm(W)220mm(D)!
the one and only let down with them was that where the removeable grill sits over the two bass ports covering them with their own plastic port extentions; they had a tendency to make an irritating "brrr brrr" noise when the bass was passed a certain level. But when removed from the speaker box there is nothing of the sort. so basically the grill is the let down of this speakers design.
they overall, like i said in my post are in immaculate condition
! the rubber surrounds on the woofers are prestine, with no tears or holes. plus the cabinets are beautiful, except for the left speaker, which sports a few white paint specks. No doubt from the blokes garage or something.
