    Those lineups are just getting to the age that capacitor upgrades will be needed in both the built-in amps and speaker crossovers before too long. The caps in the 3000s amps have been an issue of stability since production if I recall.

    As mentioned before, plate amp on the RT3000p (and other powered RT models) will probably be the first to go. In Canada, Polk deals with a certified repair place that actually has a couple of rebuilt units kicking around for cheap. That is how I got mine fixed, but I did ask for my faulty one back. And as mentioned, check out the eBay company out of Chicago who repairs these plate amps. In fact, I would go as far as to do what I am doing, build up a stock of replacement parts and drivers, for that rainy day. My RT5000 rig will be with me forever, because it is the ultimate (imo) HT rig period, so I want to be able to service it myself, once parts are no longer available.

    Unfortunately, the next thing to go after the plate amps will be the sub drivers. I have had two MW8500's rattle on me at higher volumes. Took me forever to find a hardcore guy that had 8 of these drivers as backups, mainly because they are discontinued. Needless to say, I bought 4 of them, 2 for an immediate repair, and 2 as spares. I am getting a similar rattle on higher volumes now on my CS1000p subs, and those drivers (MW7015) are also discontinued, so on the hunt again for a replacement.

    See my post on the sticky (top) for vintage drivers, where I list all the driver numbers for the RT3000/CS1000/FX1000, and what is available and what is discontinued.
