I just received my MW6510 driver from Polk for my RTA-11t's. The old one would botom out at moderate levels. I installed the new driver and matched the white and black cables. Now I only get sound from the tweeter. I reinstalled my old driver and everything is great (except the bottoming out problem). What's the deal? Did I get a bad driver and would that cause the problem in the other driver's sound level? Should I try reversing the wires? Thanks, Jeff

    Even with polarity reversed, you will still get sound from a functional driver.

    Hook the raw driver up to the speaker wire from your amp (free air), AT A VERY LOW LEVEL, and you should hear something....if you don't, call cs and send it back.....

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    I just tried and I get no sound whatsoever. I will call them tomorrow. I know it won't be a hassle, that's why I love Polk Audio. Again, thanks for the help!

    Sounds like you just got a lemon.......................a real rarity for Polk, but rest assured they will make it right.

    That is why they are GREAT!!!!
