    Default New Polk timeline at Polk HQ!

    Name:  Timeline500.jpg

Size:  199.7 KB

    Have a look at our cool new installation at Polk HQ in Baltimore: The Polk timeline. I'll post closeups of the year plaques above the speakers in this thread.

    Can anyone take a stab at naming all the speakers they see in this pic??

    If you see a guy with a mask hauling amps and an easy chair in there one afternoon, don't worry about it. It's not a big deal :)

    L-to-R: SDA 1.2, RTA-12, Monitor 5jr, Monitor 5, Monitor 10, ? Also, way down past the 1.2 (with just the side showing) - SDA 1A or SDA 2.

    Very cool, jon. I look forward to seeing the year plaque closeups. That "Frequency" wall paint/paper is also way cool. I like it!

    Hmmm.....the only thing missing on that wall is the evolution of F1NUTS hair with each speaker release.

    @badchad - absolutely open to the public, stop by HQ, say hello to Charlotte at the front desk, and she'll give you a guest badge, and I'd be happy to show you timeline.

    As for those plaque pictures I promised, our great new marketing inter Kyle (kb3) posted them in this thread: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...light=timeline

    Kyle will post pics of the speakers themselves soon.
