Please let us know how you moved them to the third floor. I want to get them too but am really worried about moving them around and then fit them in my space. Enjoy the beasts
I got a mover at first thinking i would be able to help out. He came with a dolly. We strapped one sub to it. We could only do it length wise rather than sideways, since the width of my stair case is smaller than than the width of 4000ULF.
When we attempted to tilt the dolly, it just wouldn’t stay and even the full weight of the mover wasn’t enough to keep it tilted. This would be a big problem going up the stairs since we needed not only to keep it tilted, but at the same time drag it up the stairs, one step at a time. Too risky, so we gave up!
Second day, i got a couple of movers from thumbtack who specialized in heavy items moving. They had done a lot of pianos. I had posted the sub snaps and specified the weight so they knew the size of the job. They assured me it would be done with care.
They came right over, removed the grills and double strapped the sub to a motorized dolly. It was still a mission maneuvering the sub due to limited space but they managed to get it up. After they were done, he told me he had underestimated the job coz it was ‘just a couple of speakers’. But in fact, these were the heaviest speakers they had come across
