'old member', first post

Define 'old' and 'member' however you like... I am not afraid.

This might(if it works) be my first post on this site, I'm a Polk'ster since '92 when
I purchased(much to the dismay of my wife at the time-funny how a guy remembers such things...) my RTA 11TL's, which David(#Westmassguy) has just completed a crossover re-build(!) on. They were my daily drivers(nyuck..nyuck) from '92 until 2015 when we( the latest wife-meet the new boss, not quite the same as the old boss!) moved into our current home and took advantage of a Polk F/F sale(late 2014) and went with 'newer stuff' for the new living room.
But I soon missed the 2-channel sound of the 11TL's until this Spring it became a mission to see what they had left in them. Hopefully, I'll know in a couple more weeks.

I also seem to remember another Polk 'forum', back around '95-96 but I can't honestly recall if it was Polk-based, or just a Polk section of a general hi-fi forum.

Thanks much to everyone here, and no longer here, for the reading material
of the last several years and beyond. I hope to contribute every now and again.

As you were...

    Welcome. Those were some mighty fine looking crossovers Dave did for you! I have a pair of the RTA 11T's I refreshed at my GF's house. They are a great sounding speaker.

    @Hermitism did all that nice work -- might as well give it some airplay, y'know?
