    RTA 15TL

    Not mine. Look to be in nice shape. Price might be a tad high, but I'd go look if I were local.

    If I had 450 these would now be in my room and I would have a FM ad for a set of Monitor 60's and maybe a PSW125.......

    Bet they would love the power from my Carver amp :frown:

    Just thought I'd throw this out there, no affil. There's an old pair of Polk Audio RTA 15L's with new tweets,on Houston CL asking $300.00. Maybe someone could get them to come down on it?

    No affil. Thought someone would have picked these up by now since a lot of people like these big RTA's.

    They may be "new tweets", but they don't look like the right ones.

    I noticed that too Cincy,but I'm not familiar with the RTA line. I wasn't sure if some of the fellow polksters here who have modified their RTA's have switched out the tweeters also.Maybe some will chime in.
