If you're selling for the cost of the driver, these have the SHS drivers in them?

I posted incorrect, I think it is the BHS driver. It was expensive @dgage can clarify

Correct, these have the BHS-24 driver, which was the driver to have for home theater and I referred to it as the "Max" driver. And another correction, the thing weighs 135 lbs!!!!

The SHS-24 is designed more for car audio competitors looking for a high-power driver but doesn't dig as deep. You can see that by comparing the Fs values. You could also look at the WayBackMachine and model the BHS-24 for yourself (https://web.archive.org/web/20161208...-ts-parameters). I know I did when the SHS-24 first came out as I had several customers call about it but I quickly dismissed it as not applying to home theater.

SHS-24 - 27 Hz
HS-24 mkII - 19.2 Hz
BHS-24 - 16.9 Hz

The BHS-24 was designed for home theater owners wanting very deep bass and greater power handling than the original HS-24. One of the reasons the BHS-24 was discontinued was because the magnet-motor was so big and beefy and hard to keep a consistent supply.

With the updated drivers and current amps, this is a heck of a deal. And if you're close enough, reach out to MolonLabe to get a demo. But don't go unless you're ready to purchase as one listen will have you hooked. They were impressive in his space, especially with the trampoline he calls a floor over the garage. LOL!

David

P.S. I've measured the Mariana 24 subs in quite a few rooms and they have been flat to 6 or 7 Hz in every room I've measured. So if you're looking for deep and clean bass with prodigious output, these are the subs for you, especially at this price. Good luck with the sale Chris!

Didn't even think of that. I have no financial interest in this deal and you can look at my posts and see I don't blatantly market on AVS. Like I said, I didn't even consider that my post would be marketing though I now see how it can be construed in that light. Mods, if you'd like me to modify, please let me know what changes to make and I'll make the necessary changes.

I met Chris through AVS and he purchased this pair of subs from me. I personally delivered them and hung out with Chris and his family for the day with my dad and son. Chris is a nice guy with a great family and I'm just providing additional product information. I've also seen Chris do several nice things for AVS members such as buying a set of Triax subs from another member to help him out financially even though he really didn't need the extra subs. Throw in the fact that he's a fellow veteran and he's definitely someone I'm going to help if I can.

I want to say +/- $1800, meaning it could have been $1799, but I don't think it was lesser than that.

Either way, you're talking about an $1800 driver with a Speaker power amp, that combo alone is more than his asking price. I get that its technically used, but dual 24s....not everyday those really get pushed to the limits.
