    Default When did Polk start making the RD0's?

    So...... when did Polk start offering the RD0-194's and 198's? I guess you could that say I'm curious. You could also say that I'm hungry, but that seems irrelevant to this thread, so don't!

    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    I truly didn't think about it when I ordered mine. I was glad they had some that fit the openings the same and I read they sounded smooth.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    Thanks. See now that's the type answer I was hoping for. The reason I was hoping for a recent date like that is becasue is shows that Polk really cares about its customers, and it also shows that they really care about their vintage lines of speakers. I mean, the most recent models of speakers that can even use those RD0's are from what, '91? There was no need to develope these tweeters 10+ years later other than to satisfy a relatively small niche of loyal vintage Polk lovers. I know they're makin' money on'em, but if they just wanted to make money with a new product they could have pumped out some low end boombox or something like that for the masses.

    Cheers Polk!:D
