    Default 16 Ohm LSi 5.25" Driver

    Does any one know if Polk makes a 16 ohm version of the aerated polypropylene drivers that are in the LSi series? I have sent the tech support folks at Polk the same question, but I thought I would ask it here too...

    No. There are similar drivers out there that are 8ohms though.

    Yes, hardly anyone though. It's almost as bad as finding a decent 8ohm tweeter.
