Hey guys just stumbled upon some older polk audio speakers that are pretty nice. I hooked them up to my onkyo receiver and they sound good. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about them. [ATTACHMENT=154]photo.JPG (1,215k. JPG file)[/ATTACHMENT]

Nate:


Welcome to the HTF!  http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/


Are there any labels (or other identifying marks) on the back of the cases (or possibly under the grill cloth) to identify the model # of the speakers?

I did a google image search for "vintage polk speakers" and came across this image/website:

According to the brief writeup, they are Polk Monitor 7Bs.


Also found this For Sale post: http://www.canuckaud...198944-vintage/


Edit: some extra checking showed the Monitor 5s to look very similar

yes they are the 7b's after checking, thank you. These are great, found them in my basement. I hooked them up to my onkyo reciever and sony cd changer. Overall they are sick! My dad said he got them before he went to college and he graduated in 72 so they are old but still awesome!

Treat them gently. If they are truely that old the foam/rubber surround material is probably in an advanced state of decay. They will still work fine but just don't touch the surround material. If they do deteriorate beyond being usable the foam/rubber can be replaced.
