    Default Are these RTA 8s or 11s?

    I dont have the dimensions but what do you all think, are these RTA-8s or RTA-11s?

    Look at the back of the speaker, it should tell you which ones they are. The RTA 8-Ts are 11 1/2 deep & 32 inches high and weigh 39lbs.

    best you can do is contact the seller and ask for the numbers off of the back label, a pic or what the drivers are in there. it seems it would just be guessing without anything to really scale the speaker to.

    My guess would be 8's, judging off the size of the Polk label in the front...

    and i was going to guess 11T's because of the proportions with the plug on the floor, and the pedestal looks more like 11T's than 8T's....

    Funny how some people want to sell something but don't post any information or pictures but but that is usually where you get a good deal as they don't know enough about it to know what the buyer is looking for.

    I agree, they look too wide and deep to be 8T's.

    Above is a link to the add. I finally got a response back from the seller, from the serial number is 11T29034. He told me he will take 100.00 for everything, entertainment center and all. I have no clue what I would do with the entertainment center, its HUGE!

    so they are RTA 11T. and that is a good price, low enough to help offset many of the wonderful addicting upgrades which can be done to these speakers. Sell the entertainment center on CL for $100 and you have a new set of RDO-194 tweets, direct from Polk, to start your journey.

    I'm still on the fence about this one, he is pretty firm about NOT separating anything. I'm a sucker for good deals especially the RTA series. Ive got a pair of 11TLs already and a pair of RTA-12s. If it was just the speakers alone I would probably pick them up in a heart beat but I don't need the entertainment center let alone have a place to store it. There is a pair of 15TLs that I am thinking about as well that I can get pretty cheap, they just need new tweeters. Decisions..Decisions..Decisions

    Looks like we have to shove it up to you.
    That's a heck of a deal. I sold my RTA-8TL for $125. 11TL go for more than $200.
    Donate the entertainment center on your way to goodwill or sell it for $50 later...

    Though it is a great deal, perhaps it is pointless if you already have 11TLs.

    That's kind of what I'm thinking. I've already got enough speakers plus I am trying to save money to help fund some tube projects and finish my RTA-12s. I recognize this a great deal but I dont have the room nor the time to deal with all the extra baggage that comes with the speakers.

    I never get that lucky! Like the others I would have paid the $100 and then sold the stuff I did not want.

    "Secondary receiver of some sort."

    Man, you can just let your imagination run wild on that huh? Everything is already free. Why SHOULDN'T it be a classic Mc or Marantz 2600? Pioneer 1980? Carver 2000? or a TANDBERG 2075.
