    Default RTA 11t issue

    Just picked up a pair of RTA 11 t and noticed that the one speakers top driver is pounding away and yet on the other speaker it is not. I swapped the upper driver with the lower driver in the cabinet and it seems to match the other speaker.?
    Also i noticed that on the other speaker that the top driver had an issue with a scratchy voice coil so they guy i just got them off had some spare Polk 61/2 drivers and gave me one, I noticed right away after i replaced the driver that the lower bass output from this speaker increase. So im guessing i have to replace all 4 6 1/2 driver and upgrade the crossover
    I am using a Onkyo 9.2 receiver to power them and even with all there issues I am happy with them. paid $150 Canadian.
    Any advise on where i should start?

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Your post is a little confusing. Do you have any MW's left that are frozen or scratch when the driver is gently pushed in? If not I wouldn't bother replacing them.

    Tell us what model number is printed on the back of each driver. It will start with MW followed by 4 numbers.

    The number on the back of the speaker with the bad voice coil is MW 6510. Are there replacements available ?

    Ok, that is the correct driver. You should check that ALL the other drivers are MW6510's as well.

    Yes, Polk stocks that driver. It looks a little different than the originals and you'll have to cut a notch in the rubber surround where the screw holes are.

    Oh yeah, be sure to mention you are a Club Polk member to get your discount.

    I believe you have to order parts thru the Canadian distributor, but ask Polk first.

    There isn't a crossover update from Polk, there is a crossover upgrade that you can do yourself or have an audio shop do for you. IIRC, your speakers use the SL2000, so there is an upgrade to the RD0194-1. It's a vast improvement.
