    I feel for ya. Really, I do. :'( Maybe one day though.

    I had to drive 5 miles to get mine. What a long trip! :'(

    Mine are now 50 ft. away. Got em last spring I believe with a CSi5 center ( you can just see the side end of it behind the top closer to the door, and a PSW505 sub for 300 or 350. But the tweeter resisters need replacing. Some mids had that white coil crust which cleaned up great thanks to advice from this forum. Other than that, not a scratch or nick on either of them. The tall grills had a couple of breaks but are now fixed.

    I liked the price a lot !!! when I saw them on my local Craig's list. A 70+ young man was moving and downsizing. Yea.. :)B)

    Those do not appear to be Polk drivers. IF they are, they'er the wrong drivers period.

    The correct drivers are 4x MW6509

    Received this from the seller:
    “No the drivers were not from Polk unfortunately. GRS 6PR-8 6-1/2" Poly Cone Rubber Surround Woofer. When I bought them originally the original mids were blown.”

    I only have a permit :disappointed:
    And my parents would kill me. And I couldn’t pay for gas.
    So basically, I would get a ticket, then get in huge trouble, and then be in debt for gas. As much as it would be awesome, I don’t think it’s worth it. :confused:

    Good point @pitdogg2. Considering they're Frankenpolks, not the most sought after SRS, would cost quite a bit to get back to stock or more to upgrade...those SW-150's are a steal at the current $250 price. I have way more than that invested in all the upgrades for my 1.2tl's.

    Tell me, would you pay $125 for a replacement PR if yours was unrepairable? Guaranteed, you'd make your money back if someone needs it. Potentially, even more. Heck, I'd pay $250 for 1 SW-150 if one of mine was blown. I've made 4 major moves in the past 10 years, so I have 2 saved for a rainy day (one is not perfect).

    I'm not into cannibalizing a perfectly good set of speakers but perhaps someone can get them into the CP family for a rainy day. I'm not near the seller...otherwise I'd buy into this insurance plan :) . Folks, these are unobtainium!
