    I know, it must be one of the first 500 Monitor 7's ever made. Too bad it's not a working matched set. Makes you wonder what its history is; what happened to its mate?

    It looks like I can get...

    Do you have any experience with the MW audio Peerless clones? I can't find much about them except that they are made in China (of course so is everything). Do they sound like the originals?

    It is an interesting speaker, but I need a working set more than I need a broken museum piece. Besides, the only modification I plan to do is change out the tweeter and possibly add a resistor in...

    You're right it's a 6.2Ω resistor, I typed that wrong in my first post. I thought that the SL1000 and the Peerless were similar and the SL2000 was the one that is generally disliked. Why wouldn't the...

    Matching my mismatched Monitor 7's

    I picked up two early Polk monitor 7's. They are early versions with the 8" PR's. I got them knowing one tweeter was busted and would need to be replaced. I figured I could just grab a Peerless tweet...

    Looks good to me. A word of advice if you haven't already ordered the parts: its a good idea to order one or two spares of each in case a lead breaks or something.

    No, no it isn't.

    $50 buys you way more on the used speaker market than a pair of R15's. I think I paid $50 for mine new (on sale) at CC. If you are looking for something that size, and price...
