Polk SDA-2B upgrade

I have a pair of SDA-2Bs I bought in 1989 and need to order some replacement tweeters. I can't find a place to order these. Please assist.

    List was $71 but after I mentioned that I was a CP member, and with a little negotiation, got em down to $48 each plus free shipping!

    Yeah, but they probably just felt sorry for you because your car is so old.

    Be careful if you buy them from anyone other than Polk. I bought a pair of RD198's from one of those places advertising them as RD198's but they sent SL2500's. They were trying to tell me RD198's and SL2500's are the exact same tweeters with different part numbers. After several rounds talking to them they agreed to give a refund. Called Polk direct and got the correct speakers a couple days later.

    Out of curiosity, how did you know they were SL2500's?

    I'd like to know that myself. I wouldn't know how to differentiate between the two.

    Still waiting......

    Surprisingly impatient for someone who had to wait around for primordial ooze to form just so they could have something to argue with... :p
  • Tweets they sent were exactly the same as what was already in the speakers. Box and driver had no RDO identifying on them. Then talking to a guy at Polk that looked up that place's purchase history and found they had only purchased a few RDO194 and 198's in the past 12 months. The place stands firm there is zero difference between 198's and 2500's so it didn't matter which one they send out.

    Yeah ok, your story didn't make sense the first time and now I know it's fantasy.

    HAAA! HAAA! Sounds like someone ate a big bowl of obnoxious this morning...

    Yours?

    Nope. It looks like a pre-"Shining" Jack Nicholson thumb. I'd say circa "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975). Definitely later than "Easy Rider", though.
