Did I get a good deal on these older Klipsch speakers?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I stumbled upon a very well maintained set of Klipsch speakers from the late 1990s. An older guy was selling them on Craigslist, and I picked up the set for $450 bucks. here's what I got:

1 pair of Klipsch Epic CF2 Floorstanding speakers.
1 Klipsch KV3 Center Channel
1 pair of Klipsch RS3 rear surround speakers
1 SW15 Sub

1 Adcom GFA6000 Multi Channel Power Amp
1 Adcom GTP600 pre Amp

All of this for 450 bucks.

How did I do? I don't need the Adcom components so I plan to turn around and sell those.

In an attempt to answer my own question, I've been perusing ebay and other sites trying to find these speakers to see the going rates. It looks like the front left and right speakers sell for around 800 a pair nowadays, and the center for 100 or 150. The surrounds are going for 350 a pair on ebay. So yeah, I guess I got a good deal.

That SW15 sub is a freakin' beast. I can't find any current prices for the thing, but it weighs 85 pounds and has two 15 inch drivers. I'm interested to see how this one does in my theater room.

I still have no clue on what the amps go for.

Check audioreview.com for what others paid used for those amps.

Looks to me like you can sell the amps for what you paid and basically get around $1300 worth of speakers for free.

You were robbed.

There is a very similar set-up near me on craigslist minus the sub and adcom gear asking $400 so I'd say you got nice deal.

The amps should "go" for a ride via a well packaged box to my house

Great deal you got there!

You don't by chance want to sell your CF2s do you?

Oh and in my opinion you robbed the guy
