re: speakers

I have a pair of Polk Audio RTA 11B speakers that I purchased 32 years ago that work like new. Polk Speakers have rubber around the cones instead of foam. Foam can deteorate in as little as 10 years and can be quite expensive to replace. I have purchased several pairs of used Polk bookshelf speakers from Ebay and Craig's List over the years and have been very satisfied. Polk's wattage capacity ranges from 100w to 1000w depending on the receiver or amp you have. Frequency response is excellent on all models and the new Polk's are excellent performers and a good "bang for the bucks" I hope this helps you.

re: speakers

MTX AAL 12B speakers work fantastic the speakers are 100watts RMS/200watt Total and they play on a frequency of 50khz -20khz at 8ohm
