This spring has been great for finding ridiculous deals for my wife et moi. It started with a Samsung 50" DLP TV for $150 - ebay/Craigslist. Still haven't figured out what to do with it, leaning towards having it dedicated to a Wii in the basement. 7 foot wide horizontal entertainment stand with TV lift. Was originally over $4000. Potomac, MD estate sale. Marked at $75, 1/2 price yesterday... $37.50. We also got a very nice French country style china cabinet for $75. We rented a 10 U Haul truck to pick both pieces up. It took four of us to lift the TV stand. Signet SL280 B/U speakers. This was my favorite find, a $25 handyman special at a local thrift store. I think they were around $800 new. I use a pair of these in our bedroom and they're excellent speakers so I figured at worst I'd end up with cheap spare parts in the unlikely situation where I might need them. I hooked them up at home and only the tweeters worked. When I opened one up I wasn't quite prepared for what I'd find. These are very well built boxes with heavy acoustical foam rubber against the walls. The first thing I noticed was a peanut shell as I pulled the woofer. Then another and it became obvious that a mouse had made it's home there. There were probably four or five cups of shredded material (foam rubber and fabic) in the bottom of the box. Inspecting the driver, I found that the mouse had even chewed the lightweight leads going to the cone itself. I've seen mice in gear before but eating that wire seemed a bit extreme. Opened the other one up, wires chewed off the same way and this one had a couple of cups of corn in it. Seriously. They had two three level homes... definitely living large. Whatever had been in there had been long gone. My guess is the PO had these stored somewhere. I replaced the wires, went over all of the connections on the biampable crossovers, sprayed and aired out the cabs and they sound great. Not bad for $25, maybe a couple of hours of my time and minimal supplies. I also found great deals on a couple of basses and a Bag End S10-D cab. And a refrigerator for the garage. And more. Cheap fun.
