    Seems like only slipped magnets in one speaker... notice there is no fuse in the holder in the back of the one speaker.

    Doesn’t seem like a common thing on Polk’s, stored well I guess.
    Or are you implying that someone removed the fuse to make people think that it isn’t broken?

    Monitor 10Bs with receiver and CD player. Philadelphia. $125
    https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/ele/d/polk-floor-speakers-with/6705519206.html

    One tweeter looks to be shot but $125 for an instant garage rig sounds like a deal.

    Do it Dave... if you have a BIG room for them to breathe their magic in. Also if you do, that seller should knock a lot of $ off for what you'll have to do to travel that far. Maybe 200.00 off? ;)

    I drove 2-1/2 hrs. one way for my newest Turntable. It was a beautiful day trip for us too. The Lady knocked 50.00 off the 250.00 price. :)

    Enabler! :smile: I did call the guy and asked for more pics to get an idea of what generation these babies are.

    Tony you and I are aligned - I offered him $1000 pending my inspection and he accepted. Tentatively I'll be heading out there on Sunday. They are on hold for me until then.

    Serial numbers are 3418, 3930 but I have found after searching a bit that the numbers are useless cause there is no database (public at least) that will tell which generation they are. I may pull a MW off while I'm there just to confirm, but if they are truly are minty I'll get em!

    He is the original owner, has not played them in quite some time, but cosmetically they are in excellent condition. We'll see!

    Now I just have to break the news to the Mrs that we're taking a road trip! :smile:

    Now I just have to break the news to the Mrs that we're taking a road trip! :smile:

    That's great! :):p

    I thought my wife would say "see ya when you get back", but she said it had been a while for us doing that road trip thing for stereo stuff and she would love to go if the weather was going to be nice. We stopped for breakfast and stopped for lunch to get a sausage dog to eat driving back home. It was a great 7 hr. round trip. ;):)

    It was to New Bern NC.. The town that got a massive storm surge from Hurricane Florence. I saw on the news where we walked and talked and hung out for a while by the shore being under 6' of water down there and 1' to 2' where I roamed looking for an outlet outside the Convention Center parking lot and by a side street gazebo.

    I think you're jumping past the SRS2's aren't you? If you have the spacious room, you probably won't care about the 1/2 size speakers like I and others have. I think I have the room,( if I clean it out ) an 18x21 with 10' walls and cathedral ceiling to accommodate those BIG BOYS. I'd have to get experienced members to inform me on the good room size matching opinions. My SRS2's definitely fill my room to rock concert levels, but maybe the BIG BOYS would fill it easier.

    Billy Idol on the BIG BOYS...OH YEA! B):p

    I also told the Lady with the Turntable if it called for rain the day we were to meet (Sat.), I'd like to make the trip on another day. Maybe Sunday. She fully understood, concerning my age and all, and agreed happily...LOL. I hate driving in the rain on long road trips!

    You certainly have the electronics to power those BIG BOYS now don't you. B)

    I thought about picking up a SA-14S1 or a KI Pearl, but honestly my components are fine right now. The main thing limiting my system is the space that it's in.

    So yeah, I'm going to stick with this current set of components for now, as I know the real limiting factor is the room. I can always upgrade my source/preamp at some point in the future. :)

    Also hopefully the owner can help you load them up. Those bad boys are heavy!!! Good luck on your quest... :)
