Hi all,

below is a link to my yahoo photos. take a look at the IMF speakers link. there's a local guy that wants me to trade my KEF 104/2 for his IMF TLS80 MKII. i put an ad on craigslist looking to trade my speakers for some big IMF transmission lines.

I've actually had two offers for TLS80. both have issues. the ones in question have been modded to run what has to be the oldest SEAS dome tweeter I've ever seen. AND the funkiest "super tweeter". it looks like a ribbon tweeter from a Genesis speaker. you guys have any ideas?

anyway, from a visual standpoint, the previous owner (not the present owner) looked like he did a clean install. BUT, you just can plop in whatever tweeters you like in that complicated IMF crossover and expect it to sound right. there's no telling if this "tweaker" did any compensatory mods to the crossover for these new drivers.

anyway, take a look and tell me what you think those ribbon tweeters are:

so, far, i might be interested, but not straight trade. more like trade/cash???

thanks,
Robby

There is an excellent albeit short article on IMF loudspeakers in the latest edition of Hi-Fi News. (April)
A most satysfying read indeed!
