I am asking all of these questions so that hopefully I only have to open my SRS 2's one more time.
I can help you spend even more... :D

The more time I spend with these, I find that the midrange on the SDA-1C is superb. I am really enjoying mine and they are not modded near to the level as yours are Larry.

But, if you run across another pair of speakers you want me to do, then we could work something out! :)
Any re-installation of another foam involves either removing all those supporting dowles, or cutting the foam to go around them. Removing them would be very unwise, as they're cemented in there really good. The area around the mid-basses where the particle board is not very substantial would probably break if you tried to remove those supports.
Sorry, this is Larry's thread. I'll shut up now.
Hi all! I am new here. I think I am going to take all my mid/bass drivers and JB weld 'em just to be safe. Too much investment not to, I think. I have two Monitor 5's that had both drivers frozen up so I replaced them with eBay purchases. They work great now. I understand there is a place that can fix the frozen drivers but not cheap, around $130 - $150 a pair I think. I will have to look this up again. I can twist the magnet & outer plate by hand on the frozen up drivers, so it sounds like the "glue" gave out or none was used. I have collected many older Polk drivers and speakers to try to put together a nice sound system that can be voice matched, mostly older monitor 5's, 7's & RT-11t. I am using Hafler gear & am looking at upgrade kits for everything in hopes of improving what I have. Any helpful hints are welcome. Thanks all!
