A Complete Thumbs Up To Crutchfield
« on: January 06, 2021, 04:09:34 PM »
Just letting everyone know that a purchase and subsequent return to Crutchfield was the smoothest in my 60 year old life. I am actually amazed that I sent back speakers and stands- 4 separate boxes- on Saturday and by this morning, I received an email confirming they received the return and have processed my refund.
Kudos to them. Since there is a complete absence of brick and mortar stores anymore, I guess itís a good thing that they exist.
BTW, they have a set shipping fee to return speakers- there are no surprises. I learned my lesson ten years ago returning speakers to a company that rhymes with zoo. It cost me 463.00 to ship them back, then had to beg to get my money refunded.

Hmmm?
Can I buy a vowel?

So what did you audition?

I tried out these:

They were not efficient enough to pair with my 30 wpc amplifier. If youíre in my age group- 60 and above, youíll most likely love the speakerís aesthetics as much as I do.

They look great IMHO.
rated at 90db into 6 ohms and 30 watts wasn't enough? Guess cant always go by posted measurements
Heard good things about them. Too bad it didn't work out
