    Default I think my dB's are finally gonna bite the dust

    Right channel is making a rattling noise. I'm hoping it's just a mounting bracket that's gone wonky.


    They were bought new in 1996.

    Well that sucks. Maybe youre right and once you dig into the doors, its just something inside the door itself thats causing the problem and not the speaker itself. Thats happened to me a time or two. Think a speaker has crapped out and its a piece of trim thats causing all the problem.

    I'm hoping so 'cause this summer I was going to tear the system apart and rewire it for bi-amping and rebuild the sub box so it fits behind the seat better.

    Track down a used pair of MMC6500's John. Most fun I've had with any system was with those speakers.

    I had a set of MMC6500's that I stuck in a friend's Jeep when they were new. They were nice but the dB Series out classed them.

    I'm not talking the recent series that they released to replace the old EX lines. I'm talking about the dB Series that replaced the original Mobile Monitor series.

    The DX series was close but a little too bright. The current DXi line is also close. I have not heard the new MM series because nobody local has them available for a demo which is disappointing. I'd imagine that they would be on par since they use a soft dome tweeter with a polycomposite cone. The only real difference is the neodymium magnets vs the ferro magnets on the old dB Series. The only car audio speakers from Polk Audio that ever bested the old dB Series IMO was the SR line and good luck finding those!

    Yep. I've got 2 sets of the SR's and the only way I'm getting rid of them is from my cold dead hand. LOL! One of the best woofers ever made IMO with one of the best small format tweeters ever.
