    Yeah, that is the ebay listing that prompted my original question. They look like MW6500's to me, but the pics are not perfectly clear, so it was a little hard to tell. That's why I asked the...
  2. is there such a thing as an MW8500 driver?

    Do you know if Polk ever put a 6.5 in. driver with the MW8500 designation in any of their classic (late 70's to late 80's) speakers? I have heard of of the MW6500, and MW6502's and MW6503's, but I...

    I've been told that the MW6503 is the current direct replacement for the MW6500.

    I bought replacement drivers directly from Polk a few years ago for my Monitor 10's, but they sold me MW6502's,...

    Fixing plastic Polk Speaker grills

    The final step is to epoxy the new filler piece into the broken grill frame. I mixed some 30 minute epoxy (I use a small yogurt cup and a wooden coffee stir stick) and carefully placed it onto the...

    Recently I picked up a pair of Polk M7's at a local thrift shop for a little less than $30, and one of the speaker grills was broken. I decided to go ahead and fix the grill because other than that...

    Well, these are the ones Polk Service sold me as the correct replacements several years ago. I guess they either didn't have any of the correct ones at the time or just plain sold me the wrong ones....

    Sure. Here you go.

    As you can see, the new drivers are MW6502's, while the original drivers were MW6500's.

    I had to replace 2 of the original MW6500's because the adhesive that kept the...

    I did have to replace 2 of the mid-bass drivers in one of the speakers a few years back with some new replacement units from Polk. Does that still qualify as "original"?
