    Impulse h2’s & impulse Ta’us - unmanageable to move on your own. Musical fidelity kw250s was a bit of a beast as well.

    Wilson Audio Sophia. Huge crates - 2 man job warranting a van. As for their bigger range of speakers I dread to think but 85kg in a large cabinet takes some strength.

    Pah ! ProAc Response Fours at 133kg EACH and 63" high x 17" deep x 14" wide.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    Probably cheating (because they're PA) but a pair of JBL SRX728s.

    Either the Lockwoods:


    or the La Scalas:


    The Tannoys are taller, Klipsch deeper and I think heavier. I remember thinking my old Isobariks were a big speaker...

    Pioneer SX-1250, IMF RSPM mkIV, Tannoy Edinburgh, Tannoy Lockwood Major.

    All backbreakers apart from the Lockwoods which fortunately had castors and lifting handles.

    Nothing silly that has required help.

    Probably B&W DM2a, Chatsworths or Briks.

    Tony L's Lockwoods are so massive they have lifting attachments on the side.

    In terms of visual size, Maggies although very thin and light. In terms of Mass, probably anything on the Target R4 stands (ATC SCM10) or the KEF 104/2, stumpy but dense!
    Then there was the Goodmans Axiom 201 and Tannoy Stirling HEs, both largish too.

    Maybe second place too. Again, not my actual pair (which went to Australia in 2009) Mine came from the old BBC studios in Glasgow.

    Counterpoint SA9 PS is a chunky 48lb lift - and that’s only half of it. I don’t move it often.
