    Any particular reason that my post about a pair of AR-2ax was removed? Are OfferUp links not allowed?

    Hey gang. This looks like a sweet deal in the Twin Cities area. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/ele/d/polk-speakers-and-velodyne/6758246809.html

    $325 for all of them!? :o wrong side of the country, and no funds in sight... :(
    P.S. before anyone tells me I should get a job, I'm going to once I have my actual drivers license, but I can't get to anywhere to work without one. :)

    CS-350LS for $100 shipped. Claims good condition, then great condition. One negative feedback out of two items doesn't inspire confidence. There is eBay's Money Back Guarantee, if that's a help. Caveat Emptor. No affiliation.

    I don't know if these have been reported yet or not (no affiliation). I noticed these came up on the Phoenix Offerup. About 3 miles from where I work. Look like 1.2tl's with a Sunfire receiver. Assuming it is a package deal. I'd be interested if I didn't already have a pair........ ;)

    My latest acquisition. Nothing fancy I know, but the price was right. I didn't get them for a song but I did get them for a hundred dollars.

    See I'm out of the loop a couple of weeks and look what I missed...... :D

    I'd say that's a great find at a great price. I thought my p/b's for $200 was a smoking deal......

    Ad looks like it makes it a package deal for both items. I'll take the 1.2's and hope for a lower price without the receiver.

    They are 1.2 TL's since they have the SL 3000 tweeter. Looks like a great deal.

    They look black.... And a bad pick.
    Does anyone know if they ever made black factory panels for the 1.2's? I don't know on this one?

    Only reason I mentioned they are most likely TL's is one only hopes that someone didn't just try and update SL2000's to 3000's thinking that would work. Serial and model numbers and/or crossover board would put that to rest.....

    Regardless... in my obsidian theater the black tops would work perfect for me...
    Is someone going to pick these up or am I going to have to make a road trip...?

    Possible but probably unlikely since they would need to change out all the negative tweeter wire connectors (at the tweeter itself) to larger ones in order to accommodate the SL3000. In addition to that, they would need to use a Molex tool to remove and swap the + and - wires at the tweeter harness. But yes, you're correct, anything is possible if one tries to deceive so further verification is needed.

    I noticed that the crossover plate is a 1.2TL crossover plate, so I highly doubt they would acquire a pair of those just to deceive. If they were trying to pull a fast one, their asking price is set way too low! 1500.00 with the Sunfire receiver is a heckuva deal.

    What can you guys tell me about these speakers?
    And do you think $750 is a good price?

    3.1tl might be a little high but few were made and location and condition plays a huge part. Many like them a lot. I however have never heard a pair.
    Go get them

    I've been on the hunt for a pair for over a year now.... If you have the chance, pounce, but don't pay that much, come in at 600 and go from there.

    Sorry pitdogg2.. is saw that you had already answered my question just after I posted...
    I'm kinda slow..lol

    I have and have had quite a few models of polka speakers but never SDA's.
    Always wanted a set but I'm trying to figure out what model to start with..

    Those 3.1 TLs would be a good start. I enjoyed mine. The only reason they left my house is I was able to move up to 2.3TLs.

    3.1TL's:
    I paid $365 for mine about 4 months ago. Had one blown tweeter so I upgraded them to the newer RD0198-1's with the club polk price. Also it didn't have the interconnect cable. Verdict I love them they don't take up the footprint of the big boys but the mid and upper range separation is unreal. Only slight downside is the 12" Bass is not the same as the big 15" passives but it's nothing a good subwoofer can't rectify. If I ever get to old to keep all my Polk's they'd be the last pair I'd probably give up......
