    Default I.D. this two-way floorstander

    These mystery Polks were rescued one checkpoint from the landfill. They spent at least one month outside (they were THICK with spiders thanks to the opening at the bottom!) but no water damage evident and all the drivers function nicely. Would someone please tell me which model this is? they measure approx. 34" x 8 1/2" x 10" and the drivers are SL5501 and MW8002. All the drivers are stamped 1996.

    Thanks!

    I swear there's no photo of this model in the Polk Vintage Section!

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    Thanks Russ!
    I had seen photos of RT10's with two mids. Guessing they are the "later" RT10's. That had me fooled.

    I appreciate your help.

    The first dual woofer RT series was the RT16, which used the trilam tweeter. All first gen RT models were single woofer, 2-way alignments.

    Good score! Some fool probably replaced them with a bose wave radio.
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
    Ben
