    It is a novel idea. Unfortunately I have a feeling they screwed up the sound. You just cant stick the same speakers in box and expect it to sound as good as the system Polk originally engineered.

    But this has potential. What is wrong with taking an original monitor series speaker and adding some exterior trim? Might help with the wife acceptance factor.

    agree! The only "Polk" item on that appears to be the passive radiator ….

    If speakers are not musical, then what are they good for?

    Firewood.

    Saw this "F1nut answer" to a question in another thread. It fits!

    I wonder if anyone has thought about creating a collection of F1nut FAQ"S. I have laughed many times at some of his answers in older threads. No disrespect to F1 as he is really unique.

    The box is labeled/stamped SDA 1C that means pin-blade. Even if they've been played once or twice, they're still in the plastic!! @la2vegas you better get those ASAP

    Hey Festivus, I'm sure others will chime in, but there was I believe a B/B version of the 1C! IIRC, my 1st set of 1C's, of which @westmassguy modded for me, was a transitional version of the 1C, which had the B/B.

    Still a great deal! NOS! Wow! :smile:

    Those are the studio 1C's Should still be (I believe) PB version. Not as pretty as the non-studio version with the oak caps in my opinion but still VERY NICE

    He has "Make Offer" if someone wants to try for $400 or $500. He evidently doesn't know what he has.
