    Based on the serial tag location, I'd say they are 7As

    Based on the fact that they have SL-2000 tweeters, I'd say they are 7Cs. They're also way overpriced - beat up cabinets, malfunctioning tweeters and who knows what else wrong with them.

    7c would have serial tag in top right corner.

    Those are 7C's.

    That's odd, I have 7s with the SL2K tweets that aren't Cs... in fact, I don't own any Cs, 7 or otherwise.

    I see a couple minor corner dings. Around these parts, the older monitor series tend to not command much money. I'd try to get them for $100.

    Got some 11Ts (not TLs) myself. I really like their sweet vintage Polk sound! To me, they're kind of like a nice combo of the Monitor 7s and 10s. Having vertical drivers, they have better imaging than the 10s and they dig deeper than the 7s.

    Plus, the price is definitely right and if they quit working, you can just call Jay and tell him to come and fix them or get them the heck out of your house! ;)

    Certified Russ-free since August 2007. Can't trace their history any further back than that.

    @F1nut I stand corrected on the serial tag location, just saw a pair of 7Cs with tag in cup.

    I humbly bow to your omnipotent presence on this fine forum.

    @FestYboy - Brownnoser! :* I said they are 7Cs! F1 agreed....
