    Default $900 SDA (the big ones)(w/four tweeters)

    Hey everybody, not sure if my noobness has put me n the wrong forum posting the wrong info, but I'm sure one if you will be interested in what I found on craiglist NY/NJ/PA.

    Just posted this hour. I can't afford them. Good luck!



    Info:

    Rare! Polk Audio top of the line speakers, original owner, solid oak, Stereo Review rated "The Dream System" in 1988. Google search for more info. Serious inquires only, call 570.350.3000 for showing or more info.

    HUGE CLASSIC SOUND! IF YOU KNOW POLK AUDIO THIS IS SOME OF THE BEST EQUIPMENT HE MANUFACTURED.

    These are the BIG ONES! MSRP was $3,000 back in 1988. 63-3/4" H x 21" W x 13" D; 185 pounds.

    While these speakers are designed for high fidelity music reproduction and excel at that, they would work wonderfully as front speakers for a Home Theater system too! Notice they are only 13 inches deep, so they could look great on either side of a big flat screen, -- with full-range response!

    Functionally fine, with some cosmetic flaws, including grill cloth wear/stains, wear on the wood corners and some pinholes in the speaker rims. Some TLC with fine steel wool and wood polish would make these beautiful again.

    More info, including links to reviews, here: http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/products/srs/

    I AM SAD TO PART WITH THESE BUT AM MOVING AND NEED TO DOWNSIZE. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY AS THESE BABIES ARE HUGE AND EACH ONE WEIGHS 185 POUNDS!

    Each 63.75" x 21 x 13 cabinet contains 8 Polk 6.5" trilaminate-polymer drivers, a planar 15" sub-bass radiator, 4 Polk 1" Silver Coil polyamide dome tweeters and an incredibly complex and sophisticated Isophase crossover system. One of the unique features of the crossover is the progressive variation of the high frequency high-pass circuitry which maintains virtual point source operation resulting in wide horizontal and vertical dispersion. Power handling is nominally rated at 1000 watts per channel, although the high efficiency of the system allows superb performance to be realized with even the most moderately powered receiver. Bass performance is, in a word, breathtaking. The use of 8 small active drivers coupled to the large 15" sub-bass radiator results in extraordinarily tight, quick and three dimensional mid and upper bass combined with low and sub-bass capabilities which are staggering (clean output at 25 Hz exceeds 100db!) An elaborate bracing system is employed resulting in a remarkably rigid cabinet which virtually eliminates colorations due to panel resonances. Separate inputs for high and low frequency sections of the system allows bi-wire or bi-amp operation without the need for a separate electronic crossover. The speakers are beautifully finished in oiled oak and walnut.
