    Default Wanted: Polk Monitor 10B or 12 series

    Back in the late 80's, I purchased a pair of Monitor 10B speakers for $750. Due to unforseen circumstances, I eventually (and painfully) had to let them go.

    I currently have a pair of RT1000P speakers and they are great! However, call me "old-fashioned", but they do not compare to the raw power and sound of the old 10B's. I could max out an Onkyo 150W amplifier with 0 distortion :eek: from the speakers.

    I am looking to purchase a set of 10B or 12 series speakers in very good or mint condition.

    Welcome!

    There is someone here on CP that has a set of RTA 12s for sale. You might search the Flea Market for them or maybe they will chime in. I can't recall who it was.

    Default SDA, Monitor, RTA, SRT...................

    BTW, "old-fashioned" is a good thing when it comes to vintage Polks. :D

    Looks like I came to the right place....

    I must admit I would be a LITTLE nervous trusting a set of speakers to a major shipping company. I see how they handle some of the fragile packages my company sends out. Any guarantees or special class from FEDEX you are aware of?

    I am not against a road trip, however, due to my work schedule, it could take a while to get there.

    Thanks again to everyone for the help!!!

    They can be double boxed and insured. Original boxes and then UHAUL boxes or the like. If they damage them, then they need to pay for them. However I do agree that shipping these is a risk. I'm nervous about it too. Plus its a hassle.

    This is a better idea.

    Mr Soul - I have a pair of Monitor 10Bs that I love very much. I don't listen to them as much as I should and would love for them to go to somebody that would apprecaite them. If you agree to become a regular member and pick them up, I would like to offer you mine.
    Make it Funky! :)
