    They sound better than they look! ;)

    You like bass, right? These would be for you. For starters anyway. ;)

    They're the speakers that took me seriously back to the stereo nirvana listening rabbit hole!

    It's amazing that wire even works.

    The wood caps do look great for a change. :)

    Nice speakers for maybe a good price but come on...take the grills off, people!

    Let us see what the cones and domes look like. ;)

    They are definitely 1C's, I surely don't need them, but if I can pick them up worth the money...I might ;)

    Hehe. Of course you need them! :smile:

    I've had a couple of modded pair in the past, and sold them to fund something else. The 1C's are very good speakers, but I always thought that with the close proximity of all the Mid-Drivers, that they sounded a little "congested" in the Mid Range.

    But, they don't come up for sale very often in my part of the Country, and they do have the Original Boxes. I would really like to have a nice pair of 2B's ;)

    I had bunches of SDA's crammed into a top 5 worst room contender in forum history they still sounded great....in the kitchen or on the porch. Hell, I'm still trying to find the sweet spot thanks to placement and imperfect USED DRIVERS.

    You sound like a true polk diehard.

    ^^What did you measure to come up with Smallies?
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    Monitor 10's for $125. Look to be in decent shape (couple of grill pegs missing) and possibly include the elusive stands...

    I don't see the stands mentioned. Nice condition though.
