On Craigslist.

M3ti 4x
m22 fronts (I think) 2x
A center that is Axiom
Mirage Sub PS-10

All old. $150 or less.

Go for it? Are these any good? I don't even know for sure which speakers they are other than they are axiom and the bookshelves are m3ti.

Yes.

Unless they are damaged, in horrible shape or counterfeit.

I would hook them up to a source to make sure they work.

Yeah, check if they work (particularly check if all the woofers and tweeters are working by sticking your ear up to them), but otherwise, sure. A replacement woofer will run you something like $50 from Axiom, and I think a tweeter is somewhere in the same neighborhood.

Center looks like a VP150.

Loc: It's all about the location.
If everything, or even most of the speakers work, that's a very good price.

So you think they'd sound okay for home theater?

Are you sure you want them? Apparently it's not possible to play these speakers quietly. smile

Yeah, I'd jump on this deal. Really goor price for all those Axioms.

You'll probably not get better for $150.

Definition of goor: Sorta good and sorta poor. Depends on whether you visit avsforum and read the Apple Dumpling Gang comments. They took turns dropping M22's on their feet and have been pissed since.
