:( I am very stressed about my current situation. I just love, no, LOVE my R7's, had them 13 years now.
Seems that my driver (MW8002) in one of them is blown. I quickly looked at other similar posts and it looks like nobody is successful in replacing this speaker.
Here is my question to all of you who care to help me out. Are the R7's as good as I think or are they just average?
Is there anything Polk currently makes that would be a good replacement? I went to Best Buy to hear what they carry, and, in a word, I was offended at how awful they sounded. I did'nt even bother remembering what the model #'s were.
I'm a 2-channel guy. I use the R7's in a home theater for the 2 main's but also for straight up stereo. I don't really like the sub-woofer with a lot of my music. I listen to acoustic jazz, classical, metal, classic rock, dance. Pretty eclectic.
A friend of mine suggessted the B&W 602 bookshelves but they don't make them anymore. Figures. All the speaker companies figure that everybody uses the subwoofer so much that they quit making speakers with decent ported woofers.
Please offer me some advice.
