Polk audio RTi8 aesthetic parts

I just purchased a used pair of RTi8 for a good price from a friend. The speakers themselves work great. I tested them at his place with his onkyo AVR.
However, some aesthetic parts are missing. During the move he lost the outriggers, spikes and one of the polk audio decal wielding plastic piece in front of one of the towers.

Outriggers I am not that concerned because I can probably make something up with a piece of 1x2" wood piece temporarily. But the missing plastic piece makes it ugly. Where can I buy this part?

    You'll have to CALL Polk Customer Service to inquire if those parts are available.

    ^Thanks, will do that.
    Do you think using a 1x2" wood as outriggers temporarily is a good idea? I will enquire about the outriggers too when I call polk audio. But right now, without the outriggers they are not stable at all.

    Update: Called polk audio and ordered the front plastic piece and polk audio decal. Not sure if I should put the price here but were pretty cheap.
    I think I am going to make my own outriggers but they do have the outrigger feet for sale.

    Since they have the outriggers I would have purchased them as well. 1x2 pieces of wood are a poor sub for the real thing.

    Yup. I am going to just try make something up with aluminum bars, if it doesn't come out good, I will purchase the polk audio ones as well. I need some aluminum bars for another project so, I will be using leftovers. I am tossing idea of 1x2 wood out. :smile:

    Update: I was able to fabricate outriggers with 1/8" x 1" aluminum bars.
    Next: Will tap M6(or any other thread) holes for the spikes and use may be parts express spikes?
