    Polk Monitor 4's (?), decent price. No affil. Probably worth it for the tweeters alone... although I never advocate parting out a working set of speakers, unless they are Bose. ;-)

    Sorry, but those aren't peerless tweets. :/

    Yeah, they look like SL2000's. Do they need to have peerless tweeters to be Monitor 4's? I'm not as versed in the old monitor line, I'm more of an SDA man...

    4s came with a range of tweets, from the peerless, tri-force, SL2Ks, and the series II came with an odd ball phase plugged tweet.

    Castle Rock. SDA 2's still in (or back in) their boxes. I think they were put back in though, so they probably have some wear and tear on them, as I think I see in one of the photos on the grill cloth. If not brand too, haggle him down,

    No way for that price... Come in at 250 and only because the boxes are there.

    I meant "brand new", but yeah, still too expensive.
