I have my original Polk 10s that I bought in 1980. Last summer blew both tweeters. In addition, the capacitor(?) on the crossover burned up as well (was probably driving them too hard with a failing Sony "receiver"). Previously I would pop fuses; this time the tweeters and crossover failed. I called Polk parts last summer and was told that they could not fix the crossover, but the woman I talked to had me describe the crossover and based on my description she told me the capacitor was fried and suggested I get it repaired. So far I can't find anyone in Vegas that does such work.
I don't remember her mentioning if they sold replacement tweeters; does anyone know if they still do, and how much they are? I have seen other posts about "upgrading" the crossovers? How so? I went into a "vintage electronics" repair shop last saturday in WA state and talked to the shop owner. He suggested I find replacement tweeters on a site called "partsexpress.com". Good idea? Is there anything that is close to what came in the original Polks (or better)? Any info you could pass along would be greatly appreciated.
