    @audioluvr - it’s a looong drive. But I may be making a trek to Boise this fall. I will inquire of the seller and see what kind of deal I can swing. Standby.

    Don't look now but Frankenpolk is back. This time his victim is a pair of monitor 7's, although he claims they are monitor 10's. Oh the humanity!xzb3t2ievfdj.jpghttps://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/ele/d/vintage-polk-audio-speakers/6730175526.html

    The thought of someone drilling thru a Peerless tweeter on an early/original Monitor 7 (which has been on my wish list for a long time) is indescribable. And he couldn't even get the tweeter centered!

    You really didn't have to post this one............

    There is no “annoyed” button, so I chose lol instead. Hate to see that.

    Really?
    You could buy the speakers, sell the tweeters then pick up a pair of Peerless tweets...

    Radioshack super tweeters were stand alone units you could put on top of a speaker.

    If they really go for $100 this idiot ruined 2 pairs of speakers!

    Yes they were but you could take the stand off and put them in speakers. I bought a dozen of them back in the day. They cost 10.00 ea. new back in the 80's and after watching sell for ungodly prices i wished i had a case of them.

    Correct Brian and yes they were very good for the price. Most of the time i would set them on top of my speakers and face them to the rear to reflect off the wall. I was never disappointed in their performance back in the day... today might be a different story
