    I feel for ya. Really, I do. :'( Maybe one day though.

    I had to drive 5 miles to get mine. What a long trip! :'(

    Mine are now 50 ft. away. Got em last spring I believe with a CSi5 center ( you can just see the side end of it behind the top closer to the door, and a PSW505 sub for 300 or 350. But the tweeter resisters need replacing. Some mids had that white coil crust which cleaned up great thanks to advice from this forum. Other than that, not a scratch or nick on either of them. The tall grills had a couple of breaks but are now fixed.

    I liked the price a lot !!! when I saw them on my local Craig's list. A 70+ young man was moving and downsizing. Yea.. :) B)

    Those do not appear to be Polk drivers. IF they are, they'er the wrong drivers period.

    The correct drivers are 4x MW6509
