    @Smallies they're strictly for tuning the F3(?) of the driver.

    And IIRC Polk redesigned the driver and the newer drivers didn't need the doughnut

    If they're 1.2 TLs, that's probably in the ballpark.

    2.3tl @audio_alan
    Look very clean but over priced 800.00 max
  • audio_alanaudio_alan Posts: 770
    Yeah, my bad, I was thinking 1.2TLs. Obviously those are 2.3 TLs.... $2000 is too much.

    800i's for sale for $100 Not sure if these are vintage but they look nice. Wonder how these would compare to my Boston Acoustic VR30's? Maybe I should upgrade?

    Just realize that is not an original, it is a replacement. Still good but they look a bit different.

    Yep agreed. Best to replace them as matched pairs.

    @kmeek What did you decide on these? I see they are still available. I'm considering starting to negotiate with the owner but only if your not interested in them. Thanks

    Saw those. Nice looking TL model. Go audition them that way you can check details. If you play your cards right you may be able to get them for $500. Don't know how these sound compared to 1.2 or 2.3's but should be quite good.

    Didn't want to step on anybody's toes (@kmeek). The guy isn't budging yet on the price. @codycatalist offered to take a look at them for me. They're 3600 miles away from me so Iogistics are a bit..!

    I have a set of 3.1's. From what I understand they are much rarer of SDA speakers of the SDA line. That being said if I were to put mine out three I'd ask $850 and be firm on my price. But I have a full set of larry's rings to install and I replaced the tweeters too. Then again SDA's don't come up that often here in South Carolina.

    It is Monterrey, not some chump website full of supposed know it alls.

    my comment was not aimed at you it was for @verb and @FestYboy. And was a joke something you know very little about evidently.

    If you do not like this website feel free to find the door nobody is forcing you to stay.

    I read where it was at and my comprehension of the subject may be a little better than yours.

    Ever since you started posting again you have belittled and talked down to well respected members who are leap years ahead of your knowledge.

    Feel free to put me on ignore

    Take care Mr. Small

    I'm pretty sure they come up for sale here even less often then in South Carolina. Having said that now, there is actually a pair of SDA 2A/B's( the owner really doesn't know which they are and I haven't seen them yet) on CL but they're still 400 miles away. I'm stalking those 3.1TL's in Phoenix at the moment and they're 3600 miles away. The 3.1TL's have me excited, if I can get the shipping logistics worked out then with upgrades I think they'd be worth the money and efforts.
