At an auction today, I saw a couple of Polk Monitor Series 11t speakers. I went over, hefted them, and, relying on my old rule of thumb for buying speakers at garage sales and auctions, "Heavier is good," suggested to my mom (who is auction crazy, and loves buying things at auctions...) "Sure. Bid up to $50 for 'em."
Well, she won the bid, a pair for $22.50.
Brought them home, and they sound terrific--right up there with my B&W DM2's (which a guy at B&W told me were the model that Roger Daltrey used in his home studio as monitors).
The driver second from the top on one of the speakers is just barely putting out any sound. I took the driver out of the enclosure and could hear it just sorta whispering. What's the part number for a replacement driver? I think it's a 6.5" driver (that's what it looks like).
Also, what's the pricing and availability like on this driver? Anyone know?
(Oh, btw, the B&W DM2 speakers were also bought at an auction by my mom a few years ago for $15 for the pair. hee hee. Got to love auctions in Western Colorado.)
