    Nothing wrong with them. I just don't like the shade of grey. Just want new ones that is all.

    What shade of grey are you talking about? Anyhow, you better get use to the color because you'll never find a new one, let alone a pair.

    Paint them gloss black, then see how much more you liked them when they were dirty gray.

    LOL, There Are no New Ones!

    You will never find a pair of new ones. I have a pair of spare 15" PR's because I bought a pair of SRS 2's that had water damage and I ripped them down for parts.

    As per yours: they are grey because they need to be cleaned!

    Take a piece of paper towel and spray 8 or 9 squirts of windex and clean each PR.

    Check out how much dirt I got off of mine, the bottom paper towel is from the PR

    I suspect you are not experiencing the true SDA SRS effect the way you have your speakers placed. You need at least three feet from the side walls to experience true SRS effect.

    I understand yoiu probably don't have the space to do that. I do and all I can say is wow on the SDA SRS acoustic effect.

    I have a brand new pair ( Ordered as spares ) that have been stored in cardboard boxes and never exposed to sunlight since I ordered them. I kept my CRS's , but unfortunately my larger polks did not make the move with me to my new house. If interested...PM me

    Yes, G2, Thank you for rubbing it in. My dining room is 22' long and when the WAF was away i moved everything out of the dining room and moved my stereo system in and it was amazing. But I have no screen in the dining room and it's hard to use the dining room table when it's on its side :(

    I don't know, maybe it's just me.......something doesn't feel right here and I'm rarely wrong about this stuff.

    Maybe, I will ask him to take a picture of a folded up $20 bill on top of the radiator and post it.

    If he can then I guess it's true.

    It almost looks like to me with a request to pm him instead of posting a set price here he is looking to auction these off to the highest bidder or perhaps even sell them to several people at once lmaoooo.

    Even if he is perfectly honest and above board this is one of the reasons why we have a flea market and rules that we have to abide by. to protect both seller and buyer.

    I am pretty certain if this was not such a rare sought after item he would have been told to get 25 posts before he offers them for sale here by skirting the rules.

    I have been a lurker here probably within the first month or 2 the forum started...have been a polk nut from my first pair back in the 80's....I had ordered from polk a COMPLETE set of drivers for my 1.2tl's. I ended up selling them when moving to my new house....used the 6 1/2's and tweeters for custom built cabinets I built myself...my friend needed the set of crossovers...and I was left with this pair of 15" radiators.

    I can understand the leeriness in having something so rare become avail....the money never even entered my mind ( Ask Lasareth...he was the first of many to reply so he got first crack at them...gave them to him for exactly what I paid for them back in the early 90's...let me tell you..they were cheap...polk gave them to me at cost ) All I wanted to make sure of is someone from this forum got them and they were going to be used in a system instead of sitting in my back bedroom.

    Here are the pics :) I would have asked for a hundred sitting on the speaker :)

    Snow is right though. . . we have a flea market here where there are rules. Selling is forbidden by anyone with under 25 posts. Your motives may be pure but we need to watch out for shysters.

    Well it looks like every thing is going to end well here with this. Im happy that the seller is honest and that the buyer got a great deal. :)

    I agree, this whole deal stinks. Skirting the FM rules stinks. This sets an extremely bad example, it should have never happened.

    Are you kidding me ? Somebody made a thread ASKING for these radiators...It wasnt ME who made the thread. I happened to have a pair and offered them to a REQUEST.
    If not for this thread they would have sat where they were stored for another who knows how many years until I creatively came up with a way to use them.

    This was NOT a so called bad example like you were whining about...it was a perfect example of a forum being useful...somebody had a need to repair something that is extremely rare to find if not impossible as you yourself mentioned. Believe me...I did not sell these for the money...I could have gotten MUCH more from a different ave ( Craigslist...EBAY..etc ) It was to help a forum member out....

    I dont believe he was referring to you in particular as being a bad guy here. Its only that other TRUE scam artists can see how to skirt the rules and actually cheat people. It opens the door per se. There has been many such before on this forum.

    Whining? Hardly, just stating the rules and the obvious. That is, what would be obvious to someone who's been lurking for 6 or 7 years.

    What also stinks is that the person asking for the item wasn't the person who bought them. Since he asked first, it would have been the proper thing to see that he got first crack. Funny though, he seems to have passed right by this thread while posting elsewhere.

    Coincidence??? I doubt it.

    Someone did post a request. Did you sell the passive radiators to that member?

    gdsk39a, it appears that you were hosed on a blue light special. If you are up to the DIY challenge, PartsExpress has a textured black vinyl laminate that closely matches the original PR coating. It feels slightly thicker than their regular black ash vinyl laminate.
