The only pic I can find on this computer, I also have an old car audio addiction that Im working on treating.
You sure that ^^^ isn't just a pic of your TV screen? It looks like one of the scenes on my 'Aquarium' blue-ray disc. Very nice.
I just picked up a 60 gallon cube to get back into the hobby. At one time I had a 480g in wall with a whole room behind it it that included a 240g sump, a 4ft tall Volcano skimmer, a 1 HP chiller and 6x400w metal halides. That was at my ex-fiance's house. Fortunately, she was just as into it as I was so she kept everything when I moved out. We are still friends though so it's all good.
a nice pair!
I may have missed this earlier but what are you powering them with?
I am still hunting for a pair but alas no luck here in southern Texas but I keep searching.
Congrats on finding your dream speakers.
Just so you know those tweeters had a flaw that in 1986 Polk could not fix with 1986 technology.
In 2004 they spent 2 Million dollars to make new tweeters for speakers they haven't sold in 15 years!!!
So are you going to keep the inferior original tweeters or upgrade to new tweeters that Matt Polk designed in 2004 ?
what are sr6500's?
I was happy to read of Bugstyvy's new speakers and your comments on upgrades
because I'm yet another convert about to take delivery of a pair of the earlier SDA SRS's.
I'm beginning to realize I should probably held out for the later models, however,
I'm willing to inve$t in a meaningful upgrade path from the start, so could you
point me in the right direction to get the ball rolling?

Thank you F1nut and all you Polk elders,
for sharing your wisdom and experience with others less fortunate. I'd like to quote this message I shared 5 minutes ago on a completely different forum:
"I'm wonderfully ignorant and unversed in the audiophile faith, however, I am a good listener. As such my comments will probably be of little importance here, but I'm having a amazing time listening to the sounds and music I have collected over a life time of occassional collecting. My first "music player" was a wind up device with interchangeable needles, playing "78's and 45's. My new found enjoyment comes from coupling recently acquired and fully "modded" Polk SDA SRS speakers to existing sound sources. It is hard for me to to put into words how remarkable and revealing that exercise has been. My old pioneer receiver seems to perform like a champ and my B&O 9300 receiver sounds even better. LP's CD's and even Cassettes are giving the impression of live, three dimensional, on stage performance! Now, neither of these have remarkable specifications nor power to speak of, but it is remarkable how accomplished they sound coupled with these speakers.
So what can I expect from a "better" sound source? I can hardly wait to find out........ I have ordered a Parasound Halo A21 power amp., Halo P5 pre. amp. and an OPPO 105 multi disc player. At my ripe old age this will likely be my last equipment partnership, the grim reaper and father time have been talking so I'd better get back to my listening on my final journey. Hope you all have as much fun as I'm having right now!"
Thanks guys, and a special thanks to Trey at VR3.
You make me happy reading that you are having a blast enjoying your speakers. Had I known years earlier that they sounded so well, I would have bought them somehow.
Robin, don't be a stranger. Post your impressions with your new gear when you have a moment.
