    Monitor 10 for $350 doesn't seem like a "deal". Meh.

    Bought a pair of 7c's from this seller last year. Nice person with an outstanding Polk / Sunfire collection of equipment. Found & bought a pair of SDA 2a's last winter from CL but had to travel 400+ miles to get them. These are local. Do I need them? No. Do I want them? Yes. How will they compare with my unrestored 2a's? What's a fair offering price? Any input is appreciated.

    You don’t think that’s a good price?

    The market usually determines that. They haven't sold after being listed for quite some time. I think you have your answer.

    That's a shame considering they came with the very desirable peerless tweeters.

    Yeah. These are about the only size Monitor series speaker I could get away with. Look to be roughly the same size as my 703s, albeit not as deep.

    Were these 1.2? :(

    They appear to me too short to be 1.2's, or maybe even 2.3's. I would guess SDA 2's, although I am unfamiliar with the non-TL SDA's.

    They look like SRS 2 to me.

    Ordinary or not that is a decent price on some decent speakers, If I didn't already have 2 model 10's (and live 3000 miles away) I would be all over them.

    Not sure why those didn't quickly sell at that price, they would be gone in a few days in the Philadelphia area.

    Its worth more than that price just for the drivers and better tweeters.

    Nice! I got a pair for $80 in the Philadelphia area and thought I was stealing them.


    I doubt the math will work but you should think about buying enough to fill up a Uhaul then take a trip to the Northeast. I am sure they will be enough Polkies along the route so you will have a place to stay (depending on what you have for them in the Uhaul)

    I think @la2vegas might have enough for a couple of Uhauls..... Lol ;)
