South East Michigan. Assumptions of not worthy of shipping carries a little cynicism. The speakers have been stored in my home for several years climatically controlled. One front cover for woofer needs to be repaired (pin is broke) don’t have the equipment to run speakers properly but for interested person I would take in and have tested for assurance. No reason to believe there is anything wrong at this point.
Thanks for the update, and the shipping comment was not cynicism; it is a significant challenge to ship 2x 120# 6'x2'x'2' units in a manner that would help assure their safe arrival. Costs for that part alone would be rather high. But doable with the right company.
When testing without a crossover, limit the volume applied to both protect the drivers and the amp. Test panel and woofer independently.
