    Yep...those are Peerless. I believe those are Monitor 7B's. I've been watching the auction just to see where it goes.

    Some damn fine speakers there...someone should jump on em.

    Ive never listened to the peerless equiped polks so I really dont know what to expect when I purchase a set. What are the differences from the peerless tweeters that polk used and the sl1000's or sl2000's? Is it really that big of a difference?

    Those old Drivers have a tendency of the magnets coming right off during shipping. This has happened to me. Those old Polk MW6500 & MW6501's had their magnets glued on and after 25 to 30 years the glue is dry rotted and with a couple of bumps the magnet can fall off.

    The best bet is to contact the seller and see if he would package the tweeters and 6.5's separately.

    On more than one occasion I've sent 7"x7"x3" boxes that I bought from uline.com to the seller and have them box up the 6.5" drives in those boxes and then ship those boxes within a larger box with lots of peanuts. I have never lost a driver due to shipping damage when using those little boxes.

    For the tweeters I would take 4 sheets of cardboard and cut a 1-1/2" hole in the cardboard and place that hole over the dome of the tweeter and then put one layer of cardboard in the back of the magnet and wrap the hole thing with several layers of heavy duty packing tape.

    If the seller won’t package the tweeters and drivers separately than you’re taking a big chance.

    Thanx for the tip Sal, I will remember that for future purchases.
    Most of them only hear how loud it sounds, and the rest of us hear everything else -

    Those look like a great set of speakers.

    Could someone expand on the actual 'sound' of the peerless tweeter as I've never heard one. Thanks.

    Well, I can't compare them to the other tweeters that were available in the Monitors, but I have a pair of Monitor 7A's with Peerless tweeters, that I just got about a week ago.

    These tweeters have a very open, airy sound. They're real crisp sounding, without being to bright...and they're overall sort of mellow. They're not harsh sounding at all. I've sat down and listened to these 7A's for 3-4 hours straight a few times since I got them, and I didn't have the slightest hint of ear fatigue. I love em.
