Dilemma: do I buy a cheap damaged Eden cab?

    Hey everyone, I have the opportunity to buy an American made Eden 4x10 very cheap, probably around $100. The problem is that it was water damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

    The one speaker is dead and the others appear to have what might be mold on it, but they still function fine. The owner told me they treated the cabinet/carpet for mold. The driver doesn't look amazing and even the jacks show a little rust.

    Obviously this is a steal for a great cabinet --- but is it worth it? I would probably want to replace all the speakers/horn and possibly even the back panel. Thanks in advanced

    If you are able to recone the speakers, you'll probably exceed the cost of a used 410 in great condition. If you have to replace the speakers, you'll exceed the cost of a brand new cab. The damaged cab basically has negative value except the value of any usable parts for someone who needs them for an existing Eden 410. IMO.
     
  3. Nope, it WAS a good cab. Unless he is paying you to haul it away?
     
  4. Mold can wreck your health too.

    I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. It's that simple.

    Free, it would be a deal. $100? Only if they are paying you to take it. :D
