    Spotted these Fender 2-12 HF's at a antique store yesterday. Pretty decent shape. Both have been retrofitted with some ugly casters. The store is asking $200 for the pair. I don't need them at all, but might pick them up if they are worth it cleaning up and flipping. I didn't plug them in, so I have no idea if they are even capable of producing sound.

    Any ideas what year these are and if they were/are considered decent cabinets?

    Thanks,

    ha ha, no.

    if i needed speakers for my band practice room and someone was giving them away for free (and they tested to be working perfectly) i might bother to go pick them up. maybe not even then.

    They are P.A. speakers that you could buy the Fender MA-6 mixer for.
    $200 is fair value - no money in flipping them.

    IMO $200 is too much. Add another $100 and you could get something much better (used) for about $300 for the pair.

    If you're short on cash and really need a practice PA, I'd offer $100 for the pair (if all speakers and horns are good). A bad horn could set you back around $60 or more (if you can find one).
     
  6. Actually they're pretty much worthless - save the $200 and get something decent.
