    Default Matched pair of 10x - are they worth anything or just as parts?

    I bought a pair of Monitor Series 10x speakers in the early 1980s.
    Serial 10 138266
    No idea if that makes them 10a, 10b, etc. Please don't flame me for being less than an audiophile.

    All I know is that these speakers sound amazing, even today. Unfortunately I rarely use them anymore and space is becoming an issue. Sort of a "only driven to church on Sunday by a little old lady" used car situation.

    Are they worth much anymore, or just for parts? I hate to garage sale them to somebody who will have no idea what they're getting. But as heavy as they are, I'm not sure they're even worth putting online. I haven't seen any on eBay lately.

    Thoughts?

    And if you can even just tell me whether they're 10a or 10b, that would be interesting to know.

    Thank you for your advice!

    Put em on craigslist. You can get more than $150 for them probably. At least that seems like a good price based on a google search. As long as the woofers and stuff are good.

    Thanks, cheezeitz51. They work fine, so I'll check out Craigslist.

    Any idea if they're 10a or 10b? The other answers in the forum were inconclusive for this serial number.

    Thanks, michaeljhsda2. How did you know? The serial, or the tweeter, or? Just curious, as it seems to be a big mystery.

    The tweeter is an SL2000 so they're B's. Damn fine speaker IMO and even better if you swap in a pair of the RDO194's that you can still buy brand new from Polk.

    Thanks for the clarification. Good to hear. Hopefully somebody on Craigslist will think the same. Have a good week.
