    Well she settled for $80. I temporarily swapped out an old SL1000 tweeter from my Monitor 10s and they sound very good. Now I'm on the hunt for either some used SL2000s or RDOs. Any ideas there...

    Well we're back to negotiating. Even with the blown tweeters and cosmetic issues, she wants $100 for the pair. She won't go any lower.

    Some used SL2000s would cost me about $50 (ebay). New...

    Yeah I agree. I later called back and offered $75. She wouldn't take that, nor could she understand how much they were devalued by their condition. I'll look elsewhere.

    Well thanks... the answer in this case is no. Went to check them out. The lady was older and didn't realize that both tweeters were blown. One of the mid-driver's cones was caved in, both grills...

    Would you spend $150 on some Polk Monitor 11ts?

    A local lady is selling a pair of Monitor 11t towers in black ash. They have the SL2000 tweeters. Not sure about the cabinet condition but I most likely will re-veneer them anyway. I don't know a...

    They're working. At the time Polk sent them to me, I remember thinking that something sounded different but I didn't realize different models were being utilized by the company by that time. The...

    I thought about this. Are you referring to the Polk RC85i's or other?
  8. Ok I'll do that, thanks. Anything to know...

    Ok I'll do that, thanks. Anything to know concerning speaker stands? Because of their size, my plan is to build some 24" cubes that are the same dimensions (width and depth) as the 10s.

    (right...

    Well, I think I found a compromise. Not the best but certainly better than I expected. Thanks to boston1450 for suggesting that I raise the 10s. They're at 24" on those stands and out about 2'...

    Thanks... after reviewing the link from Dragon, I'm beginning to see your concerns. This room is connected to a dining room (out of sight to the right) and because of that big bay window, the couch...

    Yes, but with the small stands. I'll raise them later today after work.
  13. Thanks boston... the other 10 was temporarily off...

    Thanks boston... the other 10 was temporarily off to the side in the picture. It was originally near the corner where the M5s were being tested. I'll raise the 10s off the floor today to simulate...

    Thanks for the responses. This is my setup.. a mess currently. One of the Polk 10s is out of view. I use the Polk 10s short stands that they came with. The receiver is a refurbished SX-750 (50wpc)....
  15. Room Size and Placement... Could that be my problem?

    Hi,

    I have a 21'x12' living room w/vaulted ceilings that I'm trying to setup with full "projecting" stereo sound. Due to window and furniture constraints, the speakers HAVE to go on the shorter...

    No, you're right. I just thought the Monitor 7 design would be a nice compromise for my wife and I. I'm going to continue and look for some.

    Today I bought some MINT Monitor 5jrs on eBay. I'm...

    Well, the guy hasn't gotten back to me since I last emailed him three hours ago. It is a work day for most so that's understandable to a point. I may go for broke and offer a $100. There's a lot...

    Yeah as long as I'm not dealing with mold, I could handle that. My 10s have some raised vinyl on the back from the year we left the Halloween pumpkin on top of it too long. Didn't know those things...

    LOL.. you might be onto something? I could sand and respray that. HOWEVER... check the other pic. Is that water damage on the back? Don't tell me it's mold!

    Have decided NOT to "tear them down". There in perfect working order. I'll re-veneer them one day and give them to one of my sons (the one with the most cash!) :mrgreen:

    Oh wow... a lot of replies now... thanks. Have probably given up on rebuilding anything at this point. Too many variables involved... but some good ideas. The 5jrs are still a contender.. thanks! ...
  23. Thanks for the links. These would be for 2...

    Thanks for the links. These would be for 2 channel audio only. No plans for a theater setup. I assume the 70's bass response would be similar to the 11t but the 4x6.5 driver setup scares me a bit?...
  24. Sounds good. I don't know the age or current...

    Sounds good. I don't know the age or current values of these. They have some cosmetic issues and would need to be veneered, but the drivers look to be ok. They're branded:

    Well there you have it... solid information that discourages the time and effort. Thanks.. you saved the 10's!

    Ironically last night I came across some local Polk Monitor 11t's for sale. There...
