    Others have tried these.

    Measure your opening to see if they are the right size. With either you may need to notch the cabs so the wires can fit, and the screws may not line up. Let us know if you try them.
    Thanks

    Why not just get the RD0194-1 direct from Polk? They are the same cost and will be a better "sonic" fit although not a direct sonic replacement. I'm told it requires the use of a dremel tool to slightly enlarge the cabinet opening.

    That's what I'd recommend as the tried and true procedure.

    Please disregard post #2. I just checked the schematic, and the 5 with the peerless uses the MW6502 with the 1.55mh inductor. This would place the XO point below the 2.5k minimum recommendation the tweeter I pointed out has. Wish I could edit:(
