Looking to sell pair. Other than one grill crack they are in excellent condition

EBay is by far the best market place for Allison speakers and parts. 

Lots of clear pictures of ALL the drivers is the key besides cabinet pictures. 

A serious buyer will want details about the woofers if they have been refoamed or more.

Excellent Condition??

All the drivers except one tweeter are mashed in.

Woofers are covered but appear to be original, that means they need new surrounds and possibly the spiders also.

The cabinets do look nice indeed, but the mechanical condition means they aren't worth much. 

Everybody who sells a pair of these with pushed in domes has the same thing to say "yes but it doesn't effect the sound" (but it does effect the sale!)

Please don't take it to heart, but these are typical of a pair of speakers that did not have the best care.

My first pair of Allison's were bought in 1977. Not only did I move them into different rooms, I got married and moved them to three different houses and no drivers ever got mashed in looking like those, right up to 2014 when I sold them off.
