Sound quality, Bass from a small speaker, speaker longevity, cabinet is bulletproof(theoretically...I haven't put the horse down yet!)
construction....speaker not secure in cabinet...difficult to fix in small cabinet without complete dismantlement.
I bought these new in the early ninties. They sound great today... well one of them does. The other has had problems with the main driver coming unglued(?)...not sure, its been a long time since my last attempt at repair, but it is definately not attached firmly to the cabinet. The other is being used regularly mono(balance to that output) so I can hear some tunes while I work outside around the house. I would definately buy a newer pair of polks when these finally go. Oh, did I mention that they sounded great for a long time and one still does after almost 15 years!
