  • I'm not an electrical engineer, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express, but here it goes. Most amps with a single transformer are common ground, meaning the negative posts on both the left and right channels share the same ground. This is ne…
  • TY good to know. I'll put it in the random category, stuff happens sometimes.
  • Just wondering what the pot issues are with the P5. Not moving it often enough, or too much, or just a random thing? Also welcome @WAFWarrior

  • SDA 2.3TL for $600 somewhere in MN. They were $750 a day or 3 ago. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/ele/d/polk-audio-srs-signature/6611836896.html

  • I'll have to take another peak. The height of the BH5 matches, and I think the width is within that range, although probably closer to 4". According the previous owners information the tweeters and crossovers have about 150-200 on them already. …
  • I just noticed or realized the 3.1's have the closer MW spacing of the 2B's and 1C's. I have to agree the closer MW spacing does better in a smaller, narrower space. I really need to get my 2.3's into a wider room to experience them better.
  • TY for the replies. For the speakers I have, 250W seems to be a decent amount. Even with the 1C's, 100-125W systems strained. The 2.3's appear to be the most power hungry, and my current 250W amp handles things good. I notice the power differe…
  • The poly fill may have a bit more of a V that U shape. I'll see if it I can change the shape or it makes much difference. When I get the time I will have try and find the BH5 threads. How much to put and where. I think there were some listening …

  • Well 6 months later I finally got the 2.3's in place. For the TL;DR, I have some questions at the bottom. I think the modded 2.3TL's may still need some tweaking. A Parasound P5 Preamp (optical in), and a Parasound 2250 (250W) Amp are the major …
  • I have both the 5Jr+ with the RD-0198 and M5's with the USA Peerless (not the SL-1000). IMO the SL2500's SUCK! The highs were almost muffled, and therefore not fatiguing. I actually prefer the SL2000's over them. The SL3000's are decent. The RD…

  • The peerless tweeters / copies of them are completely different, and would require a different crossover. Their frequency response and impedance curves are different. Polk specifically designed the RD0 line of tweeters as a drop in replacements f…
  • They should have one roll or possibly looser stuffing up behind the tweeter. I found doubling it, so it was also behind the MW too, helped for richer bass. I have two sets of 5Jr+'s and stole the stuffing out of one to add to the other. That sa…
  • My current listening room is a bit tight for SRS series I have found. IMO the SRS produce a wider sound stage, but also need a wider room and really adhere to the spacing between speakers, and spacing from side walls. The 1C's were better for SDA …
  • It might help to post include a general location. Someone might be interested purchasing them as a whole.

  • I have some 1C's. As mentioned int he other thread, I am not sure "airy" really fits the SDA's. Speaker placement, spacing, and listener position do have a significant effect, just like any speaker. Be sure they are not toe'd in. I have found th…

  • Tell them you are club polk member for free shipping. I would hope CS gets more specific about which model of SRS speakers you have, and what tweeters are in the now. There are two different replacement tweeters depending on the model of tweeter…
