Worth taking a drive for

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for local used speakers without much luck. Anyway, I have a free afternoon and I'm trying to decide if I should spend over an hour each way driving to listen to one of the following speakers:

A pair of Snell CIII (possibly CIVs)-asking $300

A pair of Infinity Kappa Series II 6.1 (w/Kappa center)-would take $250

Both sets look great in pictures and I'm mainly looking for the option that would give me the best 2.1 setup.

If you were going to spend 3 hours driving, which one would you audition?

I think the Snells are worth the drive, easy to drive, play loud & goes deep, less colored than the Kappas.

Thanks KLH. I am leaning in that direction,but am having trouble getting in touch with the seller through audiogon.

As a point of reference would the Kappa 6.1s sound similar to current Infinity's

Kappas have some very intense bright highs for most too.
