    So much want, the M12s are impossible to find.

    I thought you HAD a pair already? I would love these! Too far away though. :'(

    I have RTA 12Bs, not the M12s... It will happen though.

    I like that positive outlook for the future Polk additions!

    I started to collect EVERY speaker Polk made too :p ( Not the cheap ones, but I have them now anyway) but I ran into some bad doctor care and got sidetracked bad.

    I think my desire has subsided...a small bit. Maybe not. :D

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Saw an ad with these for sale. Unfortunately no pic without the grills. The pic of the rear shows serial number number 61XX. The interconnect socket is not identifiable as to pin/blade or blade/blade. Help from CRS experts is requested. Thanks.wk4jdvc5y2gn.jpg

    Blade/blade = cabinet

    Pin/blade = binding post cup.

    What’s wrong with the blade/Blade IC Polk’s? Mine sound great...

    Nothing at all. The pin blade can use the dreadnaught, blade/blade cannot. I also like the older style of cabinets better.

    I bought them, but I'm afraid I paid retail. $60 wasn't necessarily a bargain. :/

    Ok, now I really hate you... >:)

    @FestYboy, Eventually you'll come across a smoking deal. Then we'll say you suck!!

    In the meantime you might have some very slight anger issues.... :D LOL!!!

    Of course I sometimes have those ever so slight anger issues myself when someone beats me to an Offer up/Craigslist smoking deal..... ;)
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 9,476
    I agree...Keep a look out Arty.

    You'll get some more sweet deals. Guaranteed. ;)

    Well when you eventually find your Pin/Blade CRS's and if you happen to find a 2nd pair you don't want. Let me know I'm only a state away...... And I will do the same on my end if I find a 2nd pair first. :)

    I search almost daily... Which lead me to the 8Ts I picked up today. Not for a bad price, but nothing like I see @la2vegas gets on the regular. It's all about location though.
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 9,476
    Location, location, location. ;)

    You are sooo right.

    San Francisco was/is the place to be this past year for sure!

    Just polked around again... Found this 2 hours away:

    And that would complete my RTA collection if I can get it.
  • aprazer402aprazer402 Posts: 2,096
    No problem. Just being inquisitive rather than serious about them. I have too many now!

    @la2vegas It appears you're a Raiders fan. In late summer of 2004 after an evening of golf several of us had an unexpected visitor. One of our league members had a close friend that was an Asst. A.D. at Nebraska. After golf the Asst. AD walks into the bar we were at with Bill Callahan. Bill was starting his head coaching job at Nebraska the next day. I think they were coming from the Omaha airport and driving to Lincoln. Bill sat across the table from me. We had a nice short talk. Another friend sitting next to Bill, a huge Raider's fan, asked him if he thought it was going to be harder living up to what Nebraska was expecting or having had to work for Al Davis. Bill laughed and really was kind of unsure how to answer as he was not prepared for such a question. In the four years that followed he had the lowest winning percentage by a head coach at Nebraska in 46 years.

    Those M3's are FANTASTIC!

    I've owned and have been using them for 20 years in my living-room for rear surrounds and in my dining-room for main fronts for just as long. I was going to use some for my back porch but haven't done it yet. :s

    I have M5's for my dinning-room rears too. :)

    BUT when you buy them, MAKE SURE THE MOUNTING BRACKET and IT'S TWO LOCKING PINS ARE ALL WITH THEM. The bracket and pins are NESSESARY to be able to mount then up in a corner of the room. Or anywhere on a wall you desire. Those brackets have brilliant engineering designed into them! Brilliant!

    They have better bass output mounted in a corner and they just sound RIGHT there to me.

    I owned about 7 pair of them at once. If I saw some at a yard sale or pawn shop or where ever for cheap, ( 40.00 or less) I'd buy them. That was a long time ago. They're cheaper now for sure.

    Remember...The mounting bracket and PINS are essential! Unless they're 5.00 a pair, even I would buy them for that and just put them on a shelf I guess.

    I have those at my lady's house. They're good for a patio or surrounds. See them often for $30-60.
    Expect that there will be bumps in the road. Choose to not let them rattle you.
