    I wonder if the Cb's are also included on that price? If i lived closer, i would sell my 3.1's for them if they work properly.

    I've actually emailed about them with that very same question. Haven't heard back yet.

    They look like they need a good cleaning, but good overall.

    For those that can snag these, this looks like a pretty good deal. They might not show up on people's radar as there is no mention of "SDA" in the ad.

    $620 for a pair of 2.3TLs that look to be in excellent condition. No affiliation. If I didn't have 3.1TLs I might be tempted.

    Even IF I had 3.1tl's I'd be all over this set of 2.3tl's....

    I'm on a roll, lol.

    Obviously there's no affiliation with any I post here.

    Sure you're not having a garage sale? :smile:

    Well, I would be all over them but there are a few things that would hold me back.
    1. I don't really have the room for them.
    2. Cost to upgrade them would be more (more tweeters, caps, ect).
    3. Spending more money when I just went in for a dreadnaught.
    4. Respect for the Mrs. who has already been pretty good with this hobby of mine and all the stereo stuff I have purchased.
    5. Other updates to the home my wife wants to have done in the house that I see are a higher priority for her (and the kiddos).
    6. I'm already extremely happy with the 3.1s (and a set of 2Bs)
    7. Anything bigger would probably be too much in my room.
    If I didn't have any SDAs and was looking, then I probably would be all over these. Guess my level of hoarding isn't the same as some others here. :smile:

    That was what I did a few years back. I had some 3.1tl's which I was perfectly happy with when some 2.3tl's became available. As nice as the 3.1tl's are, the 2.3tl"s were a BIG step up, IMHO. I sold the 3.1's which helped fund the upgrade journey. I have never once second guessed the decision to move up the SDA line.

    We don't hoard, we COLLECT.

    I don't think any of us have stepped on/over speakers to get anywhere.


    YET. :)

    I was going to start a Polk Museum years ago but my health pain got bad and I got side-tracked with buying other brands of speakers BIG TIME.

    But I still have enough Polk Audio speakers for a carnival side show! :p:)B)

    Betwixt you, me and one or 2 other members, that could be a real possibility. Personally, I'm only missing literally a handful of models to have a complete early model lineup (4, 4.5, ported 5jr, 12, RTA 15TL). Missing a few more of the SDAs.

    You guys have issues. How did you guys get so deep into speakers?
    I have two pairs and it kinda bothers me.

    I've owned the RTA-15s, but I don't know if it was the TL model. I think it was.

    I've never owned the 12s but like I said a month ago, I had a chance but no spare money to really buy them.

    I own a 4 now or a 4.5. That little pair sounds great to me!

    I've owned the 5jr.. I own the 5 now.

    I had 2 pairs of 7s I believe but sold them like an idiot. :s

    Yes, that's all I have right now. Typically if I buy a new pair I'll sell a pair to keep the clutter at a minimum.

    All in all I've probably had about a dozen pairs of polks.

    @krazypolk I understand. You actually may have control over the ‘addiction’. I unfortunately don’t. Have 4 pairs of Klipsch, pair of Marantz, Zu omen DW’s, 3 pairs of Polks and on the hunt for more SDA’s and possibly a new wife if she finds out I’m still searching !! Don’t want to part with any of them.

    Don't worry, she won't get far in those heels. At least not if she's walking.

    Hahaha. As a matter of fact I use that avatar because it reminds me of a pair of heels she keeps in the closet but says she’s not young enough to wear anymore. Calls them her ‘ol hooker’ heels. They certainly got my attention. ;);)
