Possible Imperial for sale =(
09/03/07 at 18:55:43
 
As much as i have loved listening to my imperial, conflicts at home are causing me to concider selling it.  Its in great shape, sounds amazing, and is built solid as a rock and exact to the plans.  I'm not sure where to sell it or if someone on here would like it.  As for price, im thinking in the ballpark of about $500, but i dont really know at all what one  of these would go for, materials cost was about that so i would basically be breaking even, so i wouldnt be trying to sell this for a profit.  
It has a Goldwood GW-15120 15" Deluxe PA Woofer http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=290-397
and a Peavey Scorpion SP-15825 15" Woofer

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=294-313
and a Selenium DH200E-E 1" Titanium Horn Driver 1-3/8"-18 TPI

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=264-225
with a Goldwood GM-500PB 1" Horn 1-3/8"-18 TPI

Heres a few pics of the imperial itself





Its painted with 2 coats of white primer/sealer and two coats of glossy enamel.  As i said, it sounds great and really don't want to get rid of it but its something i might have to do  :-/.  

Also, i have 2 line arrays im thinking of possibly getting rid of.  heres a pic of it but email me at geoffrey.r.melle@drexel.edu if you have any quetsions about the line array

Word of advice. Don't consider selling it! Sell it or store it somewhere else. Conflict sucks.
If you plan of living to an old age you got lots of time. I thought I would be in my 60's before I got a tube amp. And it took a couple years for me to get things going and rebuilt my set up.

I been through it all and know how things can go sometimes

Really nice by the way and looks well worth the coin.

life is tricky regularly, i cant help, i have built and dumped / destroyed more boxes than i care to remember.im leaning towards very small equipment now days.small bookshelf speakers and a small subwoofer tucked away.

if you decide to sell it e bay might work with local pickup only.?

nice imp by the way  8-)

Thanks guys.  Yeah i did alotta work on this, i dont really want to get rid of it but space is a problem.  I put a lot of time in to it and have had some good memories with it, haha.  But Gex, after thinkin about what yah said, i gave it a day and i think im going to just keep it.  In the long run, i never know where ill be a long time from now or how badly i might want another imperial in the near future so i guess i'll just have to see how things go.
     Im going away to college in two weeks so the Imp will be stayin at home and probably seein some action from my parents throwing parties now that all of the kids are moved out, (i dont even want to begin to think what will be going on at home now) im the youngest of 4 btw.  But i guess it will just be one more thing (the imperial that is) for me to look forward to when i come home on breaks and such.  Fortunately, ill have atleast one decware design with me up at school, my 12" WO.  Anyone heard a WO in a 11'x17' dorm room b4?

Most choices are good if you can live with them.

Sometimes its really hard to replace stuff and you get mad you had to get rid of it. I do know how that feels, or used to anyway.
Myself I could get rid of most of the stuff I own now and never look back.
It did take me about three years to rebuild my audio set up (the amp was a gift) after I got rid of my other stuff a long time ago.

But its just stuff man.
