Monitor 11

My newest Craigslist find! My first peerless polks! These sound sweeet. Cant belive polk didnt sell more of these over the tens.

There a small line in the left tweeter like something leaned against it at one time. Sounds fine to me though. And the right passive has some slight delamination going on at the top.

    Does the 11" have the big, flat foam-faced PR like the 12 and the LF-14?
    If so, yeah, they don't age too gracefully. I'm not sure it has any acoustic consequences (as opposed to aesthetic), though.

    Here's my erstwhile LF14, e.g.

    The 11 was a bit of an odd duck -- I never knew of anyone who bought a pair when they were new. They may have just been out of step with the evolution of hifi when they came out.
  • Yes it does have the foam face. One is perfect an then there this one

    Use Aleen's Tacky glue to secure that.

    The tweeter

    I have seen that line on several peerless. I think I have one on the shelf that looks just like yours. I doubt anything got leaned on it. Maybe a manufacturing issue?

    Only the Polk tweeters had the hole as far as i am aware of. I do not know if Polk burned the hole in the diaphragm or if they asked peerless to do it. Either way the hole was burned into the diaphragm to combat a resonance issue. As far as I remember

    Polk did it with the tip of a solder iron.

    Don’t have nearly as much time as I’d like to listen to them, but when I do, it’s bliss!
