Is this is older Type B or the newer model with the side firing woofer? What Pioneer Elite amp/receiver are you using? If it has pre-outs, have you considered using it as a pre-amp fed into the Yamaha M-4 amp? The M-4 might be a better match with the Snells. I've only heard the first generation Type B and it was pretty much a true full-range speaker that I thought offered a good sonic balance. Unless they aren't working properly, I would hang onto them and try to get the most out of them with what you've got. If you sold them, I don't think that you are going to find their equal in the bargain basement range. IMHO, in good shape, the first series are worth much more than that $150-300 you are being offered.
