    Well, these are on ebay with no reserve starting at 10 bucks. I can't link you because of forum rules, but if you are looking for a great deal on surrounds just search for them.

    I have for sale a pair of Fosgate Audionics SD 180 bipole/dipole surround speakers. These are massive, probably some of the largest surround speakers I've seen and certainly the largest i've owned. at about 30 pounds each and a foot and a half tall these speakers do not "disappear on your wall" or any other marketing crap, these are all about quality sound and really belong in a dedicated room where sound comes before appearance. They look more like something you would find at your local movie theater rather than something for the home market. They are actually rather attractive I think, they have no logos on the front at all which gives them a professional look.

    These incorporate 2 vifa tweeters and 2 scanspeak woofers per speaker.

    These are THX certified.

    The condition is a 7/10 on audiogon's conservative scale.

    New retail on these was $1800.

    Asking $500 $350 + shipping. (I will end the auction)
    I have pictures and will email them to interested parties and eventually post them on the web.

    see 100% positive feedback on ebay under "Ceruleance"

    Here are some pictures.

    Please note the small scratch on the bottom of one of the speakers, and the penny for comparison. This is really a small mark, and you can't see it when they are right side up, especially if you used some shoe polish to fix it up a bit.

    Price Drop and a quick note:

    You may or may not know that the Harman group bought out Fosgate Audionics and started distrubuting their equipment under the Citation label. For that reason I think you will find these speakers strongly resemble the Citation 7.3's which were produced in higher volume and therefore may be more familiar to people.

    last bump on these, they are on ebay now (search for them if you want a deal) I will end the auction for my original asking price, however.
