    Default second the 1B opinion....

    ....as the grills look quite a bit shorter than the speakers.

    What is SQ?

    Would make an excellent front stage. (with my 1b's in the back...)

    Asked the seller the following:

    [quote]From the picture you have listed, the speakers sure look like SDA 1b's in a walnut finish. What color is the cabinet? Have you upgraded or changed any of the drivers? Have you done any work on the crossover? Thanks for your time, Michael[/quote]He responded with:
    [quote]These are black. They are SDA 1Cs. THEY SAY IN BIG BLACK LETTERS ON THE SIDE OF THE BOX 1C[/quote] and (in a separate e-mail)[quote]Nothing done to the cross overs I replaced one driver and it was replaced with the polk[/quote]
    Other than a lack of personality, anything I should be worried about? I would be able to pick these up so would pay at pickup time. (reducing that worry) Any other things I should ask or watch out for? Any idea as to the worth of 1c studio's?

    Are the "BIG BLACK LETTERS" in crayon?

    They're B's... C's have SRS style "caps". These have walnut cabinets.

    Michael, go see them if you can. If they're as nice as it seems they may be (always a good sign if the seller is anal enough to keep the boxes), you can fold shipping into your bid...

    have a look [URL=http://www.polksda.com/sda1c-studio.shtml]here[/URL] I think this might be what they are..... I know my 1b's do not have any indication on them as to what model they are..... They are close enough to check out, the price seems to be rising rapidly on them though and I don't think they have hit his reserve yet.......

    They maybe studio 1C's, but if they are, they are the first walnut veneer I've seen...

    Agree with doro, I'm seeing walnut, not black cabinets...

    look like 1C studio, if you are "seeing" the Walnut finish in that picture, you guys have much better vision than me. I looks like there is light reflecting on the edges, is that what you guys are seeing and saying walnut?

    Light reflecting on the edges always makes me think of walnut.. :D

    That and a brownish look to the top and sides you can see...

    Michael,
    E-mail the seller and ask what color the cabinets are...

    They look like these that were also on eBay, also identified as SDA 1Cs.

    Guess it didn't matter. Bid went up to $560 and never his his reserve. I would rather go with smaller SRS at that price.....

    Oh, well - maybe next time...

    Default No Parts Left Behind

    In keeping with Polk's practice of using up remaining parts stock, some of the very earliest SDA 1C's had the brown woodgrain vinyl cabinets in the style of the SDA 1B.

    Now that I think of it, the whole "black studio version" thing with the SDA 1C and SDA 1B may have just been a way of using up the older style cabinets while simultaneously selling the newer style cabinets with the end caps.

    Makes sense... Not good inventory management, but makes sense...

    You think if we were to slip a cabinet or two into their warehouse during the April tour, that'd force them to bring back the SDA?

    Nah,

    They'd just sell them to some eBayer looking to replace his busted and abused cabinets before he auctioned them off.;)

    If anybody is still interested in these, they are without question Studio 1C's, all black. The dead give away is there is no overhang at the top as would be if they had end caps.

    Some of you guys need your eyes checked. :D
