    Default Help identifying Polk speakers

    Hi,

    I purchased these new in the early 90s and can't remember what the specs are. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Nelson.

    first post, so I hope I attached the pictures right.

    I've had a couple of pairs in black but I haven't seen any pre '87 models with SL-2000s in them. I'm sure not the Polk expert though.

    Labels Labels Labels....They tell so much sometimes.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for the help so far. Guess I should have checked the back of the speaker. Clearly identifies them as Monitor 5s.:o

    The speakers suffered a bit of water damage and the bottom of the speaker box is separating a bit. Any suggestions on what I should do? Would you leave them alone or try to correct it somehow?

    To be fair, I may end up selling the pair. Don't want you to be giving me a bunch of help only to turn around and find out I've sold them off.

    Thanks,
    Nelson.
