I RECENTLY OBTAINED A POLK AUDIO SPEAKER THAT I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO IDENTIFY IT'S MODEL TYPE.

IT IS A BOOKSHELF SIZE SPEAKER THAT IS VERY HEAVY WEIGHT WISE. IT HAS THREE SPEAKER PARTS, TWEETER,MID-RANGE AND BASS. ON THE BACKSIDE OF THIS SPEAKER, IS THE SERIAL NUMBER M22881. THERE IS ALSO A FUSE CONNECTOR ATTACHED TO THE SPEAKER. IF ANYONE COULD HELP ME TO IDENTIFY THIS SPEAKER, I WOULD BE EXTREMELY THANKFUL FOR THIS INFORMATION!!! I WOULD ALSO BE INTERESTED IN FINDING A MATCHING SPEAKER TO THIS SPEAKER. THANKS. PMORTLOCK

    With fuse, probably early Monitor 5's but we really don't know without a pic. Also please take caps lock off when posting to the forum. Hard to read and considered poor online etiquette. Finding a single speaker may be more difficult than obtaining a working pair. You may want to part out the drivers and crossovers for money towards a complete pair once you determine what you have.

    Also if you could at least post the dimensions such as -- height, width, length, then we would probably figure it out pretty quick even without a picture.

    Still don't see answer confirmation there either.
    Looks like if question thread has any reply, it's answered.
    I was thinking op needs to mark reply as answer but I guess vanilla thinks any reply even if it is completely unrelated, is the answer.
    Pretty smart! Blah...blah. ..

    Mini Monitors it sounds like. The lower driver is actually a passive radiator. Does this look like it?

    Yes they are pretty rough. I do have surrounds to fix them and am looking for 1 better condition passive rad and 1 grille, so if any more stuff washes ashore on the left coast near you John just let me know.
