Default What are they worth?

I have 26 ceiling speakers.
There are experts here (or so we are told everyday ) on every subject imaginable.
So men, how much should I ask for them?

Frankly I would expect used ceiling speakers to be worth $5-10 each at best, although I don't think there is any market for them.

Trouble is, those are commercial speakers for drop ceilings - and not good for much else - which means you would have to find someone who is retrofititng a commercial space - a time consuming and $$$ task - who for some reason wants to save a bundle of money on speakers.

Maybe try used office furniture places?

Looks like you can get that particular model for ~$50 ea new.

They can be put in drywall ceilings also.
$5-10 is better then them ending up in the dumpster. That is where they were headed.

Thanks Flot.

They could - but they'd be no good in, for instance, a residental application.

I'm not an expert in 70v sound, but I presume if you bypass the transformer you could hook them up to a regular amplifier. Most people doing a low budget remodel will just use residential gear.

I have "rescued" some $$$ commerical sound equipment before, and in the end most of it went to goodwill. Whatever you do don't be tempted to rescue a commercial phone system.

If someone took 'em for free so you don't have to dispose of 'em.........

Advertise 'em on craigslist for $50-75, and see who bites.

That's what I did with the leftover light fixtures I bought from a guy who remodeled a commercial building..I needed a dozen for my garage, and the rest went on craigslist..
I would not part them out..and someone bought the whole lot for what I paid for them..
Anyway, for you, you will be ahead no matter how you look at it..not a bad deal..

I just didn't want to see them go in the trash. We throw enough stuff away.
I advertized commercial doors, 3'-0" x 7'-0" x 1 3/4", and sold some for $5 each. They make great work bench tables. Very heavy duty.

Here are the speakers.

and some big heavy picnic tables that were headed for the dumpster.

Thanks,

Have you checked to see if there have been any sold on EBay? I sold an old analog phone system that had been in my garage for 15 years for $100. I didn't check completed sales.
