Hi everyone. Brand new here. Been reading alot over the past few days and you all seem very passionate about my new interest.... my "new" vintage finds.
They were beat up pretty bad by the evil previous owner. And I got them for a steal. And now want to bring them back to greatness. The components all seem in fine shape. no rubber rot or pushed in covers. No frayed wires. and the "inner" enclosure still seems solid. All seems well under the hood.
Since I brought them home, I've been reading here about the crossover refresh and the tweeter upgrade, so I'm interested in both of those. Also need to find out where I can get the SDA interconnect cable, mine is blade/blade. Something weird is that the post cup doesn't look like the one listed on Polks model ID page. Mine doesn't have four posts, each pair connected with a wire pigtail. Mine only has two posts, and three little holes above. Are these some type of connection for something? And my blade/blade interconnect terminal is not in the cup at all, but way down on the cabinet back, several inches below the cup. I'll get pictures up. So I'm interested in advice on the crossovers, the tweeters and the interconnect cable.
And, I'm going to address the looks of these ragged old girls. The walnut top cap on one is cracked in several places and somebody did a horrible job of a restain (slapped on some paint on all wood surfaces). The fabric is shredded. and the side panel on one has been NAILED!!!! back on. I think I have all this under control... and will certainly post pics of the "before", during and after transformations. Plan to strip all wood, sand, restain, all new fabric, etc. A good Thanksgiving project.
Somebody on one of the posts I read asked that if anyone was going to disassmble this model, to let them know, they needed some measurments of something. I'll try to find it and contact, but I've read alot, so if its you, let me know... I'll have these gals in many pieces.
Wish me luck!!! (pics coming soon) (sorry for the long intro post)
