6511 and 6503

Looking for some drivers to replace the torn surrounds in my SDA 2Bs, original not new OEM part.

I will be looking elsewhere but wanted to put something on here as I know the original 6511s are getting harder and harder to find.

    Scratch that they are the new OEM models. Couldn't tell by the picture but it is what he says in the post = /

    I'm not as worried about the 6503 as I am the 6511...

    Sorry man they just popped up in my email notification. eBay notifies me when these show up. Can you retract?

    It took me nearly a year of leisurely searching to find some originals. I just wanted one for a spare.

    I have a dumb cat that does dumb things.

    I'm gonna replace the torn 6503 and 6511 then put them away for a little bit until it dies or I can put them in their own space away from pets.


    When I bought these they were 100% original mint...i've gone through two 6503s and a 6511 = /

    Screw that, have it declawed.

    Too late now, it would hurt too much and some animal has to keep the dog in check.

    It's my fault for moving the SDAs to the living room instead of keeping them in my bedroom = /

    Live and learn.

    I put thick cardboard in front of mine with the ex-wife brought home a cat. he liked to sit on top but never once scratched or clawed them. there is also a spray that they dislike may try that on the cardboard. were the grills on them?

    Cody I'd be all over the new or old if I was you all of them are going to get harder to acquire

    I just worry about the sound difference.

    Grills were on... both times. Tried a spray on it but she doesn't just claw them as you mentioned she likes to sit on them. Problem is when her dumb a** misses her jump and takes the drivers out haha!

    I have heard both to my ears there is no difference. YMMV The only difference is the dust cap being a bit larger and no cut outs for the screws.

    Meh with the grills on I shouldn't mind about the larger dust cap. I might just grab the listed used 6511s that I bid on. 2 for $56 is a good enough deal for me to bite plus i'll have a back up.

    I have someone with two original 6503 local here on the c list I might just reach out to.

    Pit is spot on, no difference in sound at all. Use them as you search for originals.

    Thanks fellas I will do so!

    Another thing you can do is keep the nails trimmed. We did with ours, I'm not a fan for declawing but keeping them trimmed if an indoor cat goes a long way. Ours only clawed the cardboard stuff they sell for them to claw on. The cardboard I used I had velcro on the back of my SDA's that went around the front to the other side and help the cardboard in place.

    Just bouncing ideas that worked for me.

    It just irrks me when I come home and see the polk badge off tilt....where is that dang cat!
