    You should get more WPC at 4 vs 8 ohms but distortion and heat will increase.
    That all depends on the design of the amplifier. If it was made to only handle 8 ohms then it may very well put out less wpc into 4 and possibly even be a dangerous situation for the equipment. Some that are 4 ohm compatible drop wattage into 4 ohms because they band aided it to handle 4 ohms. Putting a 4 ohm load on an amp rated for 8 ohms makes it pull more current through the transistors and can lead to a thermal mess that causes parts to burn up. it can also send a spike through to the speakers and make them toast. Remember not all amps are created equal, and if they were we would all be using the same thing.

    What I thought was strange is the backs of my 2.3s actually *say* 2.3 not 2.

    More than 1 set of SDA 2.3 are labeled as simply "2"

    Here is where I got mine and they were also listed as "2" by the seller...fortunate for me. Believe the front pictures, not the label.

    See the 4-23 thread titled "Everyone needs a good laugh . . ." I guess the seller is learning more about the market.

    That could be some of the rarest Polks around anywhere. You just don't see them.

    What's rare, the subwoofer? Does the crossover take out all midrange on that thing? Pretty interesting, using the bottom half of an RTA12 as a subwoofer.

    Well...it's a woofer, but is it really a SUB-woofer?

    As I recall, one mid/woofer is driven by each channel, so the crossover would be very different from an RTA12.

    LF 14s are the rarity as they have a crossover setup that passes the highs onto a satellite set, can be used in stereo if you have two of them, or 2.1 as this set is being sold. Not your best size combo for a sub rig, but cool for 1976, as sub/sats were rare.

    Thanks for the info! For the time period, the LF14 and Monitor 4 combo is interesting indeed. I also hope that someone in club Polk that knows how to take care of their stuff is the next owner of these. They appear in VERY good shape for their age and it would be a shame for something so rare and pristine to get into the hands of someone that would trash them.

    New Club Polk member, but a long time Polk SDA owner.... in fact I still have and use my SDA2's that I purchased new back in (gasp!) 1985 when I was stationed in 'West' Germany!

    I've been itching to upgrade the old 2's to either 1C's or a 2.3/2.3TL model for some time now... and I seem to always come up either a day late or dollar short in my attempts. Well that changed this past weekend.

    http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/ele/4449864072.html

    The ad has expired but I was able to strike a deal with the owner of a set of SDA1C's. Drove down from the Seattle area to Oregon City (suburb of Portland) to pick them up this past Saturday. They have a couple of cosmetic issues to attend to (torn speaker cloth, veneer trim issues, and 1 side panel that has separated). Simple fixes to get the 'look' right, but I'm happy to report that the sound is wonderful! Speakers are stock, no upgrades (yet!). I'm going to enjoy them in their native state for a bit, just so I can compare the 1C's against my 'lowly' seriesI 2's which never had any upgrades performed either.

    I look forward to getting a little more knowledgeable about the upgrades that are out there, and the sources for parts and support.

    BTW, these speakers will be powered by another 1985 purchase I made while over in Europe... a Yamaha M-80 amp that has recently been refurbished/upgraded (by Legendary Amps out of Florida).

    Yeah, I need to get my signature filled out, with all the details...

    Congrats. I had a pair of 2.3TL's for awhile powered by the big Yamaha M80 and it was definitely sweet sounding. Welcome to Club Polk and you will find lots of great info and enthusiasts here.

    There have been a number of CP members who are still running those big Yamaha M80 amps in their system. That says a lot about about the integrity of a product , especially from a fine company like Yamaha.

    $219 is good price for the peerless RTA-12's but they are NOT C's. C's didn't have peerless.

    I think I read that he changed them out himself for the older peeerless, so he has made changes to them.

    Yes and that seller is a member here.
    I still stand by my comment. They are not 12C's if they have peerless and you can't just drop in Peerless in place of SL2000 afaik.
