    Default SDA 1C value

    Whats the current resale value of SDA 1Cs in their original condition? No upgrades. Interconnect cable is missing.



    sorry if this shouldnt be here... it seems silly to post 100 posts of nonsense as that would just clutter the forums with wasted space.

    1C or 1C Studio?

    1C maybe $300--$450.
    Subtract $50 for studio version.

    Grille snags, Wood flaws, popped tweeters, etc. all have an effect on price, as does geographical location. If these use the pin/blade interconnect, (most did) you'll have to find a used cable, or change the connections at the speaker because Polk doesn't have pin/blade cables, and the parts to make them are unobtanium.

    In perfect condition about $400-$450.
    An IC cable can easily be made using an RCA cable and removing the outer portion of the plug so that the center pin will go inside the pinhole portion of the socket , the blade portion of the socket is only used for support.

    But that leaves you with an SDA interconnect that has a tiny center conductor, excessive resistance, leading to poor SDA performance..

    Perhaps you meant that a pair of modified RCA male cable ends could be connected to ~16-gauge speaker wire.

    Yes once you have established everything (drivers) is working fine (using this tester) at the time of sale.
    It is much better to make up what Schurkey mentioned above.
