I just spent over 2 hours trying to find information on LS-90 and RTA-12's!!!! Its a darn shame that this information is NOT here!!! Things like specs, manufacture dates,photos,etc. This is a polk site, isn't IT ????

    Scott, Its good to here that another member feels the same way as I do. If everyone else who feels the same,would speak up, maybe our voice could make a difference in how the site could further help serve their members. Go to the vintage library and what do you see, the statement, these are the polks your dad had, who are they addressing, 18 year olds? I'm 50 years old and when I want to see vintage it shouldn't be something from only 5 years ago. I'd like to find information from the real vintage (like from the 80's) at least. These speakers are becoming more valuable and saught after each year. I have spent a lot of money on Polk Speakers over the years, as I'm sure many of the other members here have also. Let's speak up members!!! This is a great site, lets improve it!!!

    I agree. It should be a relative simple matter of posting the basic information of the polk speakers made over the years. This would be good for someone considering a purchase of a vintage polk speaker or just wanting some knowledge of what was available.

    Here, Here!
    When I wanted some info on "Vintage" Polk speakers I clicked on the vintage icon and to my dismay I found nothing at all about the older Polks. I agree with the other posts here, this is very important information that would benefit all.

    Polk should want to post older information. I would think it would be easy to do also.

    ADS 1230 - Polk SDA 2B

    Crown K1 - Subwoofer amp
    Outlaw ICBM - crossover
    Beringher BFD - sub eq

    Where is the remote? Where is the $%#$% remote!

    I don't even consider my 10Bs to be vintage, and I know vintage. Yet the speakers in the vintage area are newer than mine.

    I agree!

    I agree about the "vintage" label to be a bit of a mislabel. Great idea to be able to browse over some 80's stuff. I must say that Polk came through for me (again) on a manual for my recently acquired RTA 12C's. Nice bunch of fella's.

    My crossover just says RTA 12, no letter designation. And I'm sure they're C's because of the tweeter position. It's mounted horizontally instead of vertically and it's a silver coil dome. I do like their sound. What little I got to hear of them.
