    I have a set of 1983 Montor 7Bs which sound great but are too big for my space. I have been unsuccessful selling them here and am thinking about removing the tweeters, midrange drivers and crossovers and installing them in a bookshelf-sized cabinet. Can I use the 7Bs' crossovers or will the loss of the passive radiators and smaller box size screw up the sound too much?

    All the crossover schematics you need are right there:http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38755

    More than likely, it won't be right.

    Monitor 5jr's are cool and I feel the best small option for that classic Polk sound.

    The original 4s were just fine, IMNSHO.
    5jrs would be cool, though... or a pair of Mini-Monitors.
    all the best,
