Monitor 10A near me but...

Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Seems that they should be peerless right?

    My thoughts...or sl1000. Those look like the sl2000 from the 10b.

    Just spoke with the guy. His ad says he has had them many years but he must have forgot cause when I asked about the original tweets he said he didn’t know cause he bought them at an estate sale a couple months ago. LOL

    Looks like 10As that someone slapped SL2000s in. If you look close, the tweeters appear to be sitting on top of the baffle, not flush in the cutout. SL2000s have a larger face place than the Peerless, so that makes sense.

    Bet the bass sucks & they fail the passive push test. Unless of course someone added a thick gasket underneath.

    Yeah I’m going to pass on them.

    Be patient......you can find Monitor 10's for a lot less than $180. Especially if they were messed with.

    But you should run and get these Monitor 5's? in Columbus for $40. Not sure why those style tweeters have a silver dome but who cares.........the drivers alone are worth the price.

    Edit: Just noticed one of the dust covers is messed up. But i would still get them.

    Yeah I’ve had 10b’s at one time, but wouldn’t mind a pair of A’s.

    Those 5s are junk... The MWs are NOT Polk units, you'd have to replace them and update the XO.

    You are probably right. Its just that when I see an ad for any original Monitors for $40 I get a little tingly inside. I did think there was something not right about the silvered tweeters........they almost look painted.

    But I was thinking $40 for two spare drivers (anyone know what model drivers?) was still OK. When the tingling subsided and I saw one driver had problems you are right.

    A few of us know that tingling feeling very well. :D B)

    It must be like a hawk spotting a mouse or rabbit. The target has been sighted! :D

    I had it bad last Fri. night and then Sat. Morn. to the MAX. The tingling is still in me, but it has subsided some of course.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    "...See a doctor if tingling persists for more than 4 hours".
