    Default CS200 Center speaker with MW4801 driver

    Hi, I have a CS200 Center Speaker that contains two MW4801 drivers. One of the MW4801 drivers is bad and Polk no longer carries this driver. I asked if they sold anything that replaces this driver, but they said they didn't. Are there any third party drivers that one could recommend for this application?

    What do you mean Polk no longer carries it? I called a month or so ago and was told it was on back order. They took my information and said they would put me on a contact list when they were back in stock. This is ridiculous. I was getting ready to post a message to check on the status of this part.

    Default flea market

    post in the WTB forum... I have a CS250S with 2xMW4801 that is in need of a tweeter ... I've started down another route, and will likely have both MW4801s available within 2 wks.

    I called customer service and learned that if I send in my damaged driver they can sell me the CS1 (the equivalent replacement for my CS275) at a substantial discount of $93.57 plus shipping & tax. I looked it up and it retails for $199.95. I may actually do that.

    Default sounds like a good option as long as...

    ... you do not own mains and surrounds with the Sl6501 tweeter and want an exact match. they say it is close enough, but many around here insist on the same tweeter model across the front soundstage. If you do not own RT7, RT16, etc, the newer route is probably the better option, as the older stuff is getting expensive to fix (hard to find).

    I'm not that picky. I have a variety of speakers right now. I forget what model left & right channel I have, but I can check when I get home. They're bookshelf models and are about 24 years old and working great. :)

    Got your PM but can't reply...silly rule.

    Anyway, I misunderstood your post. I thought you meant you were getting some you needed for yourself. Would the cost be about the $48 Polk was charging?

    Thanks.
