I'd say they are genuine. I was doing fifteens before 18's. I seem to remember routing out the grill frame from solid with those round internal corners. I've forgotten half of what I've done in the past.
If someone can get them cheap enough with those speakers in them, it would be a good little system with 2 per side with a mid and top above.

Just realized that the price is for one only, so won't be as cheap as I thought.

Tony, you made 4 of these for me back in the dim and distant past (check the avatar - those were the actual boxes). Loved 'em, but one got stolen. We eventually sold them on for no where near that sum. £550 each is a bit much!

Yes I would agree about the price, However, they do have JBL speakers, and if you built them yourself you would come under that, but only just.
By the way, would you know what year yours were built?

£550 is absolute robbery, then you get idiots saying "well I saw them going for that on ebay, so that value must be right".

Even my 8 year old daughter, could score an authentic, used S118 loaded with freshly reconed PD1850 for that money.

It's certainly a buyers market today. When it comes value, sometimes cost bares no resemblance to what you are getting performance wise. Everyone tries to buy cheap, which is only good on one side. It's also the reason why not many people make much money in this business.

Tony, I'm pretty sure we got them from you in 1986.

However some sellers are just plain unrealistic, and lay in wait hoping to catch a newbie.

Thank goodness there's life outside of these forums.
