    Default What kind of SDA are these?

    So the guy is labeling them as SDA2 yet I looked at a few ebay auctions for SDA2 and they don't look anything alike, some with 1 less tweeter and 1 less driver.

    What kind of speakers are these and what kind of value would you peg on them?

    Thanks. I might be making a trade for them later today if I can get a value on them

    These are definately SDA2's the origianl series.

    I have these they sound awesome once you change the tweeters to the RDO's.

    IMHO, I like them more then the later A and B series. Although the finish isn't as nice as the later ones.

    Sorry for the second post, I forgot to add value.

    To me I would not pay more then 200 for these (Grilles need to be fixed) maybe 300 if they were in better shape and maybe upgraded and in perfect working order.

    Also remember the early SDA's used a dimensional tweeter as well and you can really get some funky (undesireable to me) sounds out of it. IMHO, I prefer the later models that don't utilize a dimensional tweeter. Furthur research by Polk determined it wasn't nec.

    That being said they are still SDA's and are fun nonetheless.
