Is it just me?

What is with people listing speakers for sale into the 5000. range and not bother to take off the grill or socks and showthe drivers? and in the post say the drivers are perfect.I've never responded to listing where covers were left on. Laziness perhaps? Try selling a car without showing whats under the hood.
I have bought several Porsche race cars and a Ruf Turbo without "looking under the hood." But there was provenance available on these vehicles, some of which were transported from thousands of miles away.
@speakermaster.  I think you are missing my point.Aside from electrostat or golden ear speakers which amount to a very small percentage of all speakers made,most all cone type speakers have removable grill covers.It matters not if the speaker sounds better with or without the grills in place.A person does not have to be tech savvy to remove a grill cover that comesoff in a matter of seconds.

@Jdane" I bought several cars without looking under the hood. What am I, as a non-mechanic, going to see there that I can evaluate? "
