    Default Polk S10

    Just got my hands on a pair of S10's for my son. The mids and the bass don't sound too bad but the tweeter is terrible. Anyone know of a better replacment tweeter for the S10's?

    Yeah, that tweeter is very harsh. When I was using S10s in my main rig, I stuck a Yaqin tube buffer in the chain, and it mellowed them out. It was likely just rolling off the top of the high end, but it made extended listening possible, so I didn't really care. Not the exact answer you were looking for, but one possible solution.

    Yes, I have one of those too. The speakers are for my son, I don't want to give him the tube buffer though.
    Thanks for the suggestion.
