    Thanks for your prompt responses... I was also thinking these are home made
    with Polk components. The cabinets are covered with a black vinyl the grills have home made pegs and have been recovered. hooked up the speakers in by garage with an old bryston amp . The speaker sound half descent, all components work...

    The passive is from a 5jr+, and I would guess the crossover is too. The cabinet size appears similar as well. The MW is likely a 6502. The tweeter is a SL1000. It was never offered as with the 5jr+, but it was offered with very early models of the ported 5jr. It is not a very highly regarded tweeter. A RD0-194 should work as a replacement, depending on the crossover, but the mounting plate is a different size. They are ~$50 each directly from polk and sound much better. The tweeter offset my cause other issues.

    During LSAF, I had Russman take a look at the pic. His response was prototype.

    he said that pic needs to be shown to one of the old Polk elders like Al or Sandy to confirm.

    Maybe Ken could run the pic up the flag pole

    Does @RuSsMaN hate us or what? That dude and Mark @dorokusai were two of the main reasons I stuck around the forum!

    A shame, that can be said for too many regulars who used to populate this forum.

    Add that to the "Sad" thread...

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
