Vandersteen M5-HPB high pass filter

Hi Guys

This is my first post here, so please let me know if I’m posting in the wrong section.

Ive been looking for a pair of 2nd hand Vandersteen M5-HPB high pass filters for quite a while without success. I figure instead of waiting for them to show up why not post a “want to buy” threads in this forum. 

Just wondering am I allowed to post a WTB thread in the marketplace section?


Though I am not an admin, I think not.
You can post a WTB on USAM. It is free and tends to get responses.

FWIW, just keep waiting. The Vandy crossover come up for sale regularly.
You can use Hifi Shark to keep an eye out for new posts, too.
Yes, you can post a WTB in the Classified section.  The cost is $4.00. I have done it a few times and I have always gotten what I want.  The forums are not for posting that, just the Classified section. 
Call a few of the bigger Vandersteen dealers, Alan at Hi-Fi buys, Johnny at Audio Connection, Bruce at Stereo Unlimited, Randy at Optimal Enchantment- they almost always have a few sets customers trade in needed SE or balanced as they change out gear....
Thanks guys for your kind help here. Just posted a WTB ad in the classified section for $10. Not sure why it wasn't $4 as @stereo5  advised. In hindsight, I believe it's probably to do with the tentative price that I set ($500)? Hopefully something will turn up quickly : )

Will try calling a few Vandy dealers as well. The only problem is I'm based in Sydney, so not easy to find the right time to call.

Thanks again everyone for making me feel welcomed here.

Hope you all have a good day.


If you scrolled all the way to the bottom of the page, you would have seen basic listing for 4.00   Actually, it would have been 3.00 as you could have used the coupon code sum18 during checkout.
I will keep a lookout, I need an excuse to visit my buddy in Melbourne.....
Email will be much less expensive also
