    Default Transporting SDA 1C by pickup truck

    Hi guys, I was wondering what the best way to transport by pickup truck would be for the Polk SDA 1C? The guy has the original boxes, but should I lay the speakers flat on their backs or should I lay the speakers on their sides? This will be a one hour drive.

    Thanks,
    Ron W

    Put them on their backs; use a comforter or something else that's thick to isolate them a bit from bumps. Drive carefully...

    another vote for flat on their backs.. inside the boxes if they have the foam material, other wise on some kind of mattress

    "On their backs" has always worked for me. I also put a jumper wire between the + and - terminal on each speaker. A Polk dealer told me about this years ago. It's supposed to dampen motion of the speaker cones because any motion generates a small current in the loop. Can't say if it works but I've moved SDA's half way across the country with no problems. Congrats on the 1C's!
