    Nope... Maybe if it was a series II and only a bill... But that's not a deal as is

    The thought of someone drilling thru a Peerless tweeter on an early/original Monitor 7 (which has been on my wish list for a long time) is indescribable. And he couldn't even get the tweeter centered!

    You really didn't have to post this one............

    There is no “annoyed” button, so I chose lol instead. Hate to see that.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Really?
    You could buy the speakers, sell the tweeters then pick up a pair of Peerless tweets...

    Radioshack super tweeters were stand alone units you could put on top of a speaker.

    If they really go for $100 this idiot ruined 2 pairs of speakers!

    Yes they were but you could take the stand off and put them in speakers. I bought a dozen of them back in the day. They cost 10.00 ea. new back in the 80's and after watching sell for ungodly prices i wished i had a case of them.

    Correct Brian and yes they were very good for the price. Most of the time i would set them on top of my speakers and face them to the rear to reflect off the wall. I was never disappointed in their performance back in the day... today might be a different story

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.
