    Default Replacement tweeter for R40 floor speakers

    I am looking for replacement tweeters for my pair of R40. I've unscrewed them and noticed the following part numbers:

    SL1902
    RD0513-2

    However, when I search for SL1902 on this forum and even on google I cannot find almost any reference to it. Do Polk skill carry those tweeters? Or is there another replacement I could use that would fit in the spot of my speaker's box and make sesne for the overall sound quality? I keep hearing a lot of noise around SL2000, SL2500 and SL3000 but I am not sure if those would be a fix for my speakers. Thanks upfront for any insigh.

    Regards,

    Celio

    Thanks, Ken. I've just received today an email reply from Polk stating the recomended replacement for my tweeter is the RD1503-1 (probably the original for R40's and R50's is not being manufactured anymore). I will probably place an order taking advantage of the Club Polk membership.

    Cheers,

    Celio

    Ken,
    I have a pair of R40's, one unit with a damaged tweeter. Can you recommend the appropriate (or even upgraded) replacement Polk Tweeters? I want to replace both...

    Hello,
    It's best to use the original replacement tweeter. That way the speaker will sound balanced and matched to the other speaker. Give Polk's CS a call at 1-800-377-7655 on Monday.
    Cheers, Ken

    As much as I hate resurrecting old threads I just wanted to verify that the replacement tweeters for R40 floor speakers are RD1503-1 and I ordered a pair of them today from Polk for just under $70.

    This thread is still one of the first google results for "SL1902", so i figured i'd give it an update.
