I can't remember where I heard this, it's been years. Suddenly surfaced in my head and I thought I'd ask.
At some point I recall reading that Polk's first speaker design was to be some sort of Bose-style driver array, but it ran afoul of their patents and had to be shelved. I gather the result of this was the first Monitor series that used some of the array's intended components.
Is this true, and does anyone have more details? This has probably been posted in the past but my search-fu is weak.
