    Offer $400. If they say no tell him to keep your number. That's how I got mine cheap. Everyone wants the TL's and NO wife wants these things in the house.

    Still for sale! Been over a week now. :smile:

    How do those Passive Radiators get wrinkled like that? My PRs on the 7B have very stiff tri-laminate cones. No chance of wrinkling ever.

    The first passive radiators had a thick foam rubber like front. Something under bubbled after many years between the styrofoam and top, but even though it looked horrible they never completely delaminated. The next generation of them had a plastic like front and the proper weight needed was in the form of a weighted bolt in the back of the styrofoam instead of the weighted foam on the front. Not all the foam fronted did that but a good majority did.
    The smaller Monitor/RTA speakers never used passives like those only RTA12 and the first SDA's which had the 12" passives
  • @pitdogg2 Very interesting. A weighted *bolt*.....as in a bolt of fabric? What was it weighted with?

    Nope a bolt .. like as in carriage bolt. As I've never taken one out I'm thinking the length and diameter would account for how much weight.
  • Hmm, I though low mass was desirable for a speaker cone. Learn something new every day here.

    You must have the proper mass for a passive to resonate correctly in tune with the cabinet at the proper frequency.

    2BTL's "with all the upgrades" for $400. No affilitation.
    https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ram/ele/d/faribault-polk-audio-sda-2btl/7065495777.html
    It looks like they have RD0's, and I would assume rebuilt crossovers.
