Howdy all, I have the 15tls, a pair of them, and the man I got them from told me that the original radiators were bad {Rear}, and he replaced them with I believe, regular woofers? So, is that going to be a problem for me? So far, the speakers seem to work well, and I have yet to pull the passives to check both front and rear.......
So, what should one do in this situation? Thanks for anyones help.....Cheers

    Thanks F1nut....I thought that would be the case. A few folks I have heard take off the magnets on different type woofers, and do something else, to make the new woofer similar to the old style. I wonder why Polk won't, or does not make, an replacement for these really cool speakers?
    Out for now, and thanks again

    They are a valid design approach and are easily tunable. Some fine speakers and credible designers have used passive radiators.. including Polk, ESS AMT, JBL
