  • EAW SB250 subs

    Quick question...

    How good are they and what would a good price be for a pair of them?

    Thanks!

    Powered at about 1200 watts/4 ohm they are pretty reasonable performers. Be sure they have good, original drivers. I see these with the suspensions all torn to hell from being powered by stupid-big bridged amps. I recone them and the cost is roughly $200 each driver so buyer beware.

      One of my favorite compact subs! It's hard to price used gear without knowing condition. I will say 700-1000 in good shape is an okay deal.

        Thanks AH for your always prescient input. These are being sold locally and current asking price is $900. for the pair. I haven't had the chance to check them out personally and have not even seen pix of the boxes. I would imagine, as with most things for sale, these can be negotiated.

        That being said, I would presume that these would be a much better sub choice (and perhaps long term solution) than the Carvin TR1801's that I am currently using for my covers band.

          Yes, *this* would be an upgrade.

            A cardboard box with an 18" driver loaded into it would be an upgrade over the TR1801.

            A local club has (8) of those EAW subs and they seem to take a lot of abuse and keep on ticking, if they are in decent shape the price seems fair for the pair.

              I might know of a pair of EAW 2x18's selling for a bit less ($600?) than that locally if you're interested?

                  BTW, OP-

                  900 for a pair is a good deal on those. I would, as others have suggested, take them on a test run. Ask what amp got used to power them, & what DSP or HPF was used. The answers to those questions can really clue you into what you might be getting into. For example, If the guy says he bridges QSC 4050's into each one, then says he never used a HPF, then I might pass.

                    Kinda a loooong drive from CA to CT ain't it?

                    They're thought to be EAW custom shop install cabs loaded with RCF L18P200N.

                        Are they that rare and desirable out that way?

                        I think there are two pairs still available but the second pair is being worked on. They were bought out of an install in upperstate NY somewhere with three blown drivers that are being reconed last I knew. The "asking" price was $1100/pr but they've been for sale for a while .

                          In all seriousness, no. My driving range is about 500 mi. Sac, SF, Phoenix, SD. There is a lot more EAW stuff on the East Coast tho.

                            I think there is more gear on the East Coast period.

                              I used to drive by the EAW factory every day on the way to work .
