    Woah...if these are actual, original Polk Model 9's...someone needs to go snag those RIGHT NOW!!!! From everything I've heard, they sound like complete crap, but they're a very rare part of Polk history, that VERY rarely comes up for sale.

    For $80, this is a no brainer.

    I had to google them to find out what they even were.

    The first google entry that came up was this one.

    That doesn't help me. lol

    Rare...pretty high cool factor...

    Don't sound *terrible*...but not that good, either.

    The Model Nines aren't common. I have a pair of 9As; these are almost identical but use the Peerless silk dome tweeter instead of the Motorola piezo used in the original version.

    The originals touted their use of "no [electronic] crossovers" :-)

    I actually think that the 9A sounds pretty decent. The CTS 4" extended-range drivers that were the heart of the 9 and 9A are pretty decent-sounding drivers.

    Planning a move? I wish...lol...But I'd be going to the opposite side of the country.;)

    If these stay up for sale much longer...I just might have to take a road trip...lol

    Yes, there is very little info on the net about the 9's. I once spent the better part of a night searching for info on the 9's...basically all I could find was the info that Mhardy links to below.
