Thank you. I agree, they are very eye catching speakers not to mention great sounding.

Nice score Joe!! Enjoy...:biggrin:

That's a great shot, Joe, with all three HPM's! Very cool. Congrats - the HPM-100 is a great speaker.

Those look pretty good, but the price is high. The midrange dust caps are a bit wrinkled, so it's not like those are stone mint. $400 would be more reasonable if the wood cabinets are in good shape. Those are also the "100W" versions which tend to have a slightly lower resale value for no real reason.

I sold a pair at least that nice a few weeks ago for $200...

Thank you good to know.

I bought both pairs of mine for $300: 200w version in good condition and a 100w version that is quite minty.

Thats a good deal just saw another pair of HPM 100 $1000. Thats crazy. 

post #1134 of 1258
At $300, the HPM-100 is a great speaker for the money. At $500, it's a decent speaker for the money. At $1,000, one can do significantly better.

Wow, I need to start buying speakers from Moody (holler if you're getting rid of something haha). 

Really though - That $550 is full blown retail going price on those assuming that everything not pictured is perfect. Usually though, if they don't show it, it's not great. Damaged cabinets and missing/damaged grills could bring the $$ value down to around $300 (though they still sound the same, so might be a bargain for you).

For 1k, you can probably bide your time and get a set of HPM 150/1500's. Those bad boys are head and shoulders better than the 100's (literally. and you'd be surprised by the differences). As moody might say - significantly better

post #1136 of 1258

There is a guy that I talked to at a local speaker store who mentioned that many of the AK guys are modding the Large Advent with a horn type tweeter and that they were getting fantastic results. 

 

Any thoughts?

post #1137 of 1258
Econowave mod. I think BmWr75 had a set for sale a while back.
post #1138 of 1258

You should be able to get a pair of Dahlquist DQ-10s for less that $1000 (currently looking for a pair myself).  I would think they would best anything from the HPM series.  I do love my Advents too!

Lol, I sold mine  in anticipation of getting my xr7 restored. All I'm really lacking is a dome midrange which hardly ever come across ebay. The few that have, have gone for large amounts of money(buyitnow). A pair finally came up that was a bid listing. I was prepared to throw a max bid of 100.00 since it was for a pair. With 8 minutes left, my 3 year decided to throw a hissy fit. Once I calmed him down, the auction had ended for 50.00+ dollars. My mouth was wide open. A buyitnow had previously sold for 100.00 for one. If you could have seen the look I gave him afterwards lol. But oh well, maybe another one will come available soon.

:D
