This particular pair had seen better days, but the drivers were in decent shape, and the multiple drink can rings on the top could be sanded/buffed out with considerable elbow grease. In addition to the drink rings, there were several burn marks on the tops.
Overall fine. Like most Pioneer speakers I’ve listened to, I wasn’t bowled over by their bass response, but they were mellow enough and smooth through the mids and highs.
