Guys,

I just purchased a set of SDA-SRS. Unfortunately a few of the drivers should be fixed or replaced because of slits in the surrounds. :( Anyone have some extra MW6503 drivers laying around? If so, please let me know how many you have and what you'd like for them.

I hope to get these back to "new" quality soon!

Thanks!

Alan

    DIrect from Polk is probably your best shot. Make sure you tell 'em you're in the Club Polk

    Yeah, I might go that route if I can't find some originals. I think I'll wait a while and see what turns up though. The speakers are still functional as-is, but I'm somewhat reluctant to really crank them in their current state...

    Is there a difference between the ones that polk sells now compared to the orginals?

    I don't have first hand knowledge, but I've heard the new replacements are slightly different cosmetically, and some people even claim that they don't have the same excursion.

    I think that Toolforlifefan had a set of RTA 15's and only used one as a center channel.

    They have (4) 6503's in them.

    Can't say what he did with the other one but might we worth a shot to ask.

    He already sold them. Thanks for the suggestion anyway...

    Alan,

    I do have a Polk replacement 6503 that I bought a couple of years ago direct from Polk. I will sell it to you very cheap if you want it. It works and looks perfect, although it is a newer driver and not an original. Just PM me if you are interested.

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    I recently picked up some 6503's out of a set of 15tl's, dated 1990. Comparing them to my 6503's in my SRS's (dated 1985), the 1990's have a dust cap that is about a 16th of a inch smaller in diameter than the 1985's. The excursion seems slightly less on the 1990's as well.

    So, to get my speakers to match better, I'd like to find one more 6503 circa 1990, if possible. I wonder if the "newer" drivers match the 1990 drivers, or if there is yet another (or more) slight variation of the 6503's since 1990?

    At this point I'm scratching my head. What actually constitutes an "original" 6503? 1985-1989? <shrug>
