    I hear ya about sneakin something in. Done it a few times myself. :s

    When I auditioned the RT3000P ( Only one had an amplifier ) in a Pawn Shop, Gloria Estefan's "The Rhythm is Gonna Getcha" came on the radio. I felt the concrete floor vibrate, seriously. I smiled, my wife smiled and she knew right then, I wanted them.
    I called Polk customer service a day or three later and got 2 new amps.

    I later tested a new "yard sale find" receiver with them. I think I moved the balance dial and BAMMMM. :s A heck of a short! Thank God only one tweeter blew. That's why one of mine is grey.

    It sounded like a bomb blew up in the house. It freaked me and my wife out bad!

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I still have a mint RT2000p/CS1000p set in my workout room. I had front and rear 2000’s for years in my theater room. I just can’t let them go. I almost did the 3000s back in the day and wished I had for years. Sad your a 2 day drive.

    The 3000s and 2000s can be perfect for movies once set up right. The CS1000p is still the best center I have heard. I think that’s why I waited 16 years to upgrade my theater speakers.

    Someone please get and enjoy this setup.

  • Would you be willing to sell just the center? I live in St. Peter’s so I could pick it up. Would love the 3000’s but my room is just not big enough. I have had the 1000i powered towers I bought new in 2001 so this center would be a great match. w30q6a9ud1b3.jpeg

    I have been looking for a cs 1000p for literally years now. Would you be willing to sell it with a partial trade? I have a Polk Psw 505 and and pair of LS 90'S that might sweeten the deal for you, and I'd be willing to to drive to Florida to pick it up. Any interest in making a deal?! Call me or text me if interested'

    Since you quoted his post even if he edits his the phone number stays.

    All speakers in this post have been SOLD. Sorry I forgot to update it a while back.
  • No problem. I knew it was a bit of a long shot since it’s been a few months. This is a very hard set to find!
