View Full Version : RT10 question
02-04-2006, 03:23 PM
Forgive my ignorance in both computers and speakers. Have a set of older RT10's that have been great. My son kicked up the volumn one evening, and now only the tweeters seem to be working. Neither midrange seem to be working.
Any advice. While I don't want to spend a lot, we are happy with these speakers and would prefer to try and fix them. Either direct advice, or send me (politely) to where I can find information.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds liek you blew the tweeter and mids. MAybe not enough power while driving them to too high of a volume??? Contact polk customer service on the webiste and ask them about purchasing replacement drivers. They should be extrememly helpful and polite.
You might want to A) get something higher quality to power these speakers or B) keep your son away from them...
so that it doesnt happen again.
Good luck and welcome to club polk :)

I guess my question is twofold. If we blew a speaker, why do we not have sound out of both L and R speakers. We have sound out of both tweeters, but nothing else. Is there something else that could account for this, and is there a way to isolate it if there is.
We have cheap replacement speakers that work on the system now.
And a more basic question. "maybe not enough power..." What is enough, and if that is the case, just keeping the volume low will take care of it. Regarding the power question, should I be concerned that we have 2 sets of speakers on the system. We now do not run them overly loud, but should I be concerned.
Thanks again in advance.

Watt ratings are almost useless without knowing the current. A high current 150 watt amplifier might send twice the power of a low current one. It also might have been the amp clipping.
