  • Here's my old SRS 2s. About what I expected to get out of them after I put so much money into them. I was wrong again. :)

    you can ask what ever you want but what they end up selling for is an entirely different critter.

    store fronts cost it is what it is. They have to at least double their money. If I walked in right now I'm betting they would take 8 for them right now. I have a local audio guy who is a very good guy. He has a pair of RTA12C's that he has had for 15yrs. I offered him $500.00 10yrs ago. He wouldn't take it than and he won't take it now. Pristine top hats and all he wants $1000.00 he'll have them until he dies and the son's toss them in the heap while cleaning his shop.
  • I keep an eye out for local deals, but they are few and far between around here.

    @la2vegas, Which model is the most desired? Not real familiar with the compact models. You are right though $45 for a decent set of speakers is a good deal.. :smiley:

    Thank you. I will file that in the memory banks. I guess more drivers is not always better.

    According to gimpods description there is a 86 year single tweeter that has dual boards that is not desirable either.I had a set, they sounded great but can't be Tl'd.Pin blade interconnect is what you want.

    Looks like someone hacked a pair of monitor 10's and put in after market car speakers to replace the SL1000 or SL2000 tweeters....

    Hide the women and children! Frankenpolk is back.

    They probably sound like carp, and I don't mean the fish.

    That's funny! I know this isn't the JBL forum but I picked up a pair of 120ti's that someone replaced the 12" woofers with fosgate punch car woofers!!! The guy said the foam surrounds went bad so he decided to replace them...... Doh!! Nice!!

    Since you're moving from Colorado maybe you can lug these crs+ with you. The price is now down to 190. I feel that a serious cash offer can get these for $160.zwz6ra6cbnxg.jpg

    Checked them out... 8/10 cosmetically but blew my mind sonically... even bone stock these things are amazing... snatched them up

    Sweet! Another satisfied customer.
    You had me at "blew my mind sonically".

    Starting Bucket list:
    1. SDA SRS 1.2tl
    2. CRS+
    ..... :smiley:

    I wouldn't pay $50 for them, if I'm honest. There's no stands, they're missing a Polk badge, and they need at least two new MW's. Also is it just me or do the top hats look like they're too big?

    Has he lowered the original price at all or is he still asking the same??? Interestingly enough we have a guy here in Phoenix that wants $400 for the same set. So if this set in Cali won't sell for $120obo I'm thinking $400?? Yeah right!!
  • NightfallNightfall Posts: 9,306
    The later RTA-12's are vastly superior anyway. No point in seeking the original pair out.

    Now that you mentioned it. Yes the top hats look oversized almost like they bought ones for the b or c model to put on the older model??
  • pitdogg2pitdogg2 Posts: 17,295
    Top hats can get a bad case of fabric sag. That might be the case. Those mw do not look like polk, wonder if they had to modify the hole?
