Kidding, no doom and gloom here. Just going stir crazy...

Selling our home of nearly 19 years and downsizing. No room in the new place so I am offering up as a Karma a very nice pair of RTA12b's. Cabinets are in good shape as is the grill cloth. Drivers are perfect and PR's have no rinkles. Sealed tight as a drum on push test. Peerless tweeters, crossovers are original and could probably use upgrading but sound awesome to my ears as is. Top hats could use little love.

These were generously karma'd to me a few years ago from @starkiller and I have enjoyed them immensely. It's my understanding they are one of the most desirable non SDA vintage Polks.

Kicker is I don't have the time or energy to ship so local pickup in Puyallup WA is required (zip 98374)

Minimum 100 posts and not on my bozo list are the only requirements.

    Wow Ken. That's a hell of a karma. Too far away to be in.

    Fantabulous karma (not to put too fine a point on it)!

    About a factor of 50 too far for me to drive -- 'specially nowadays. Gas is cheap, but I might never get home again in the year 2020 :/

    Ergo not in, of course, but very nice!

    About... But I'll have to pass. I'd be willing to be a go between though.

    Pew Wall Up.

    At least when I lived in Seattle/Kent WA that's how the locals would say.

    Fantastic Karma for a local! Too bad I moved to FL. The cabinets look very nice. Deep rich contrasting color. Mine dont look as good.

    God forbid you have to part them out but if you do, I would like to pick up one of the woofers. Not the PR. I karma'ed out my one extra to Tony M to get his going. I could not in good faith just leave mine on the shelf when a fellow Polkie needed one to get his running.

    So if you do, please let me know. I truly hope it does not come to that though. Would be a shame. Such a fantastic speaker, truly worthy of salvation!

    Just for the record I won't be parting these out, too nice. I can easily sell them locally for a few hundie. Since they were karma'd to me I'd like to pass them along in kind.

    Trying to think of local Polkies.. @zingo, @bikerboy , @WagnerRC , @cambir , @Geoff4rfc , @kcoc321 . Sure I'm missing some....

    None of them hang on a regular basis Ken, you may want to shoot them a PM to see if they have any interest. Bob Wagner would be my first thought since he's been more than generous himself with some of us.
