WTB Polk Monitor Peerless Tweeters

Picked up a steal on a set of Polk Monitor 10a's but only one Peerless tweeter works. The other reads overload resistance, so there is a break in the wiring somewhere.

Does anyone have one or a matched pair of Peerless tweeters that came with the Monitor 10a's? Not sure if the Peerless models from the 7's or 5's will work as well but open to any advice. Thanks!

    I hear Madisound makes a decent copy of the peerless.

    Those 10s wouldn't have happened to be near Baltimore, would they?
  • No they weren't near Baltimore. Chesapeake, VA actually. Picked up a used Peerless tweeter on eBay, good resistance reading, but speaker still isn't functioning properly. Any ideas?

    could the capacitor in the crossover be bad, or is there a padding resistor ?
    I think the peerless has the angled downward wires from the voice coil whereas the silver coil metal front has the wires just going straight side to side .
    I am not a Polk expert :)

    Poor connection at the fuses is a good possibility. Odds are you've already figured this out by now though.

    That is not a peerless tweeter.
