As NEW A9's can be had for $550 shipped, I'd say you could possibly expect $400 if they are in excellent condition.

Call Polk customer service. It will be free under warranty if you are the original owner and registered your A9's.
If not, you can get a discount on parts if you are a user of the Club Polk forum.

Dan - no sweat. I'll be here for a while. If I decide not to move them to Fla I'll let you know, then send you a pic or whatever. Still a chance I may keep them, but they are very heavy.
