I'm the original owner of a pair of Polk SDA 1's bought in 1983. These speakers have been in storage for more than 15 years. But now I want to hear them again in a surround setup. I've set them up for a listen and love the SDA effect, But the speakers just don't sound good. I know these are great speakers and I'm not going to give up on them. So I need your help .
I've read a lot of threads. So I know there are people here that know their stuff about these speakers.
This is what they sound like. The bass is deep and has texture. It'll surprise you sometimes. But theres not much of it. Compared to the rest of the speaker the bass is almost nonexistant. The midrang is probably OK. But it's hard to tell because the upper midrange/lower trebble is so excessive. It's earpiercing at higher volume. The tweeters sound good though. Cymbals and the like sound crisp, clean, clear, and natural.
These speakers look mint. But are unbearable to listen to for any length of time.
What's wrong??? I need advise from someone who's smarter than I am.
By the way, The speakers are wired in phase.
