    Question Polk RT20P rattling woofer worth getting?

    I have a line on a pair of Polk RT20P.
    Seller says, one of the bass woofer rattles.
    Is it an easy fix or cheap replacement?
    Thanks for info.

    I think it depends on the issue. It could be something lose, but it could also need a new driver. I believe this is among the speakers with out of productions drivers that is getting difficult to find.

    With the speakers you have? Pass. They're essentially RT2000P's. I bet you both plate amps need work but only one is showing signs. It'd be a safe purchase IMO, but I don't see where you need 'em.

    At least I will give you credit...at least you did the post count thing. Doesn't change the fact that 98 of them were worthless posts and in no way contributed to the threads you post **** on.

    Hey my monitor 40s do this. The glue cracked up around the magnetic cover and now the speaker rattles. Im going to send the drivers to polk when I have the chance. Im sure some new good glue would solve this issues faster and better then getting new drivers from polk.
