Monitor 7 Identification

I love my Polk Monitor 7s! I’ve scoured quite a lot trying to figure out exactly what they are. 7c is my best guess.

Original SL-2000s and MW-6502s from ‘87, no fuse.

Thoughts? Thanks!sst1jcvtihxp.jpeg

    I think the difference is the bevel edge around the front edge of cabinet. Maybe the badge on the grill too. Not sure that helps

    7C. Replace those nasty SL2000 tweeters and you'll like them even more.

  • Great to have a confirmation F1, and my next move down the line is gonna be those rd-0194s. I’m psyched.

    Boston, that’s what I was thinking. Nice to have some backup.

    Im a lucky man. $35 at a garage sale well well spent!

    I was under the impression that the 7Cs were series 2 and had the sl2500 tweeters...

    Nope, The Monitor 7 Series 2 was the follow-on to the Monitor 7C. The 7C used the SL-2000 "fish eye" tweeter while the Series 2 used the textile dome SL-2500 tweeter. The Series 2 marked the end of the line of the vintage Monitor series. They were replaced by the "S" series.
