    I had a friend who had the 8's. Man they sounded good. I bought some 8's years later myself. Still have them too.

    Yes, but unfortunately the seller wants 1600 dollars for them.

    THAT'S in the ballpark for a legit price .... there is haggle room.

    Very underrated speaker. My first Polk. You could triple your money parting them out. Waste on these since they're in nice shape.

    There has been a set of LS50's for sale here on CL over a month. Price dropped down to 99 bucks, from 150 originally. Hmmm. :smile:

    My old friend who stopped by today, Loved the sound from the LS90's also. He STILL remembers the GREATNESS of the SDA-SRS2's sound also.

    I'm telling you, I've heard the LS50's and LS90"s are the great ones. The LS70's have bigger woofers and some say their sound isn't as good or tight maybe. I'd like to hear a pr. of LS50's myself. Even the LS70's to hear what others might be referring to.

    Umm, but how does the passive work in a ported enclosure? (It doesn't)

    And dowel rods to plug the ports....
    I have a pair of the SDA1 signature speakers. They actually are pretty good speakers. I completely rewired and rebuilt the crossover with Sonicaps and Mills resistors. Night and day difference.

    Yes it did because the ports were just for the upper drivers. The upper drivers were boxed in. The lower drivers are the bass drivers.
