looking for a few good ideas

110/43 degrees out today.

One of our living room audio speakers has died. These are Polk Audio RT7's and they've given us good and faithful service for many years, survived a trip across the Pacific and being lugged across the desert to Vegas.

According to the purchase slip, the warranty expired on 6 August 2002! Of course, this would only have been valid if we could've taken it back to the shop in New Zealand anyway...
