WTB: 4 SL3000 or RDO-198 tweeters

I have been lurking for the last 2 years, but used to be very active on the forum. I now need your help. I am looking for 4 tweeters for my SDA-1C's. I would prefer RDO-198's but would also accept 4 SL3000's. Thanks for the help.

    What value capacitors and such did you use in your crossover so you 1C's can use SL3000's or RDO-198's? I haven't seen a 1C TL crossover mod posted.

    Correct, correct, same, same, same, correct. They make a huge difference. Not only to the highs, as one would expect, but also to the overall sound. I just got done doing a full mod job on my 2.3TLs and I am living (and listening) in a completely different galaxy. B)

    Where did you order from? Polk customer service tells me they no longer stock RDO-198 tweeters.

    I called Polk customer service. Talked to a really friendly and helpful guy whose name I can't remember but the name on my invoice is Michael.

    I believe i talked to the same guy when i ordered my RDO 198s a little while back(same name on my invoice). Two of the eight i received had the plastic broke where the leads connect to the spades on the back of the tweeter. They still worked but i was worried the leads would snap eventually.

    I called Polk and they told me just to keep them and sent me 2 replacements no questions asked. I've had nothing but great customer service when i call.
