  • In case you haven't googled it. https://polksda.com/manuals.shtml You can find the manual there. It also explains which drivers to what.
  • I am not sure of the specific cause. It could be just the size and it is stock. I played a little with the distance from the wall and while that did affect the bass volume and response in some cases it still sounded a little mushy. These look in …
  • "With great power comes great responsibility. With little power comes greater responsibility." This is the motto of amps and speakers combos. In most cases the less an amp has to work to drive speakers the happier it is and the better the soun…
  • Its odd that the 1C's highs sound weak. The SL2000's seem rather bright, and do get fatiguing with prolonged listening. I wonder if one set is blown or there is some other issue. While a crossover rebuild is recommended, it may be required to get…

  • @FestYboy There are a pair of late model SDS-400 on ebay right now. @TennMan Interesting link. I never knew the SDS existed with the triforce tweeter. Its also strange they are in a M4A box vs the 4.5/5jr size box. IMO I like the trifore t…
  • I haven't heard either, modded or not. Many people here have had a rotation of speakers and equipment, so that likely will happen. I did some investigating a while back as about the differences. From what I gathered the 2.3's were favored for sli…

  • Update: I haven't had a chance to hook them up yet. I've been super busy, plus I got sucked into the rabbit hole. I now have some unmodded 1.2TL's too, but superb condition and only about an hour drive. The price was a little high, but I've see…
  • There is some semi tacky black mat for the bottom of drawers or tool boxes. It is usually sold in a roll. I cut a pad and use it in my car to keep stuff from sliding off a smooth surface. It is very compressable and doesn't leave a residue or stick…
  • These remind me of a Klipsch Heresy sized cabinet. Would one of those replacement drivers work? They should be high efficiency. I have heard there is a port mod for them to give them deeper bass and a fuller range. These look closer to the porte…
  • What is the time delay of the echo? I played around with some mono material when first got my 1C's. If pointed one speaker away from me and got close to the other while pointing one ear at it I got more of a cancellation - reduced volume effect th…
  • Hopefully making the road trip this weekend.
  • Contact @cortico I think he still has some.

  • I really need to write this stuff down, or list / pdf should be created for this. As I recall, the MW is different as well as the crossover between the peerless version. I think the crossover should follow the 7B_orig schematic which is why the 19…
  • Many people prefer the peerless and they are valued. There is no replacement for the peerless other than a knock off. Any of the newer polk tweeters will not be a drop in replacement for 2 major reasons. The face plate and mounting holes are diff…
  • No contest, get the peerless. If the prices were flipped I'd still get the peerless. I have the 4A's with the triforce tweeter. They are good, but, IMO don't have a lot of value unless you want some small bookshelfs.
  • ..... there are a lot of people here who love Polks willing to share there knowledge about keeping a great speaker going and I must add a company willing to keep make replacement parts (better ones none the less) over 30 years later. And of course …
  • A small FYI, while it does depend on the material, IMO if stuff starts to sound too much surround sound like you are getting too many reflections off side walls or objects. Looking at the room, there may be reflections. For me one of the fun thi…
  • Since they all have the SL2000, I would either match the set of M5's with the same parts, or if you use the 194, IMO go the cheaper route. Attached is a modified M7 schematic with the values I found on M5 Series 2 next to the table for the M7. I…
  • I would have them now if they were closer. I am still interested and but it is a days drive each way, and I have not had a free weekend with work and other pre-made plans. It may still be a while. Don't let me hold anyone up.
  • Peerless Monitor 7's w/ stands for $140 The post says M5's, so either the description or picture is wrong. No affiliation. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/polk-audio-monitor-5/6345424968.html
