Hey now! I was saw a listing in my local Craigslist (Gainesville, FL) for (2) Weber California 12" (Ceramic, Aluminum Dust Cap, 16 ohm). He wants $110 for the pair. The one pic he has posted of the cone and cap looks like at least one is in excellent condtion. I am not sure about both as they are not pictured. He says they are both in excellent condition. Also, he says he will ship.

Traditionally, 16 ohm speakers are loaded into 4x12s to keep the impedance at a "normal" level
Wiring them up to a combo that has an 8ohm tap will be ideal.

Yea, thanks for adding that. I just read about that too on the Weber forum (was refreshing my memory on impedance splitting, etc). Personally, I have a 1 X 12 combo, rated at 8 ohms. I couldn't use just one of these.

I also recently picked up a pair of these but with paper caps. I really like them, I have heard that with the aluminum cap they dont like to be overdriven fwiw. For the price you cant wrong imho I say go for it
