Just picked up my 1st pair of vintage Polk's. Early Monitor 4's with the Peerless tweeters (1983). I'm a vintage nut and was looking for a small pair of speakers for late night bedroom listening. These little mini-Polk's were so cute I couldn't resist.
Anyway, the seller was up front that one speaker sounded weak. I did some research and realized it probably had a shifted magnet. Sho'nuff one of the woofers (if you can call 6.5" a woofer) was completely frozen. Picked them up for $20. Otherwise in pretty decent shape.
Got them home and within a few minutes had successfully removed the magnet (thanks to earlier research). VC looked pretty good and was still centered on the Front plate.
Unfortunately I broke the magnet trying to separate it from the Back Plate. I am pretty confident I can build a jig to get it all back together if I can find a magnet for the driver. Otherwise, I will need to hunt up a MW6500
SInce this is my 1st post here I cannot access the 4-sale ads yet. I doubt I would find a stray magnet listed on Ebay. Without violating any forum rules, is there anywhere I should be looking for a magnet from a dead speaker? Other than asking here? Or is there a source other than Ebay where I might find a good MW6500 driver?
I'm a full time college student, and money is really tight. But I'm hoping to get these speakers back up and running so I can l listen to subliminal suggestion study guides! LOL
