    I have allways said polk audio like this: poke audio (no L?)

    Yet I know a guy you says the "L." I hope he is wrong, because the sounds SO stupid. If Im soposed to say the L, polk should change their name!

    I've always heard it pronounced with the L. Why wouldn't it be? What's so bad about it? Would you prefer that Matthew Polk change his company name to Matthew Audio or something? And would you insist on pronouncing that ma-hew?

    Make sure when you prounounce BOSE to leave out the highs and lows.

    *This name and it's letters are patented. In fact all letters and even words are patented by Bose.

    "yoke or yolk?

    foke or folk?

    poke or polk?

    I have honestly never heard them pronounced "poke". Go figure."

    very seriously, I pronounce these all the same. And I own all pokes, inc monitor 10s, except sub woof. Polk is Poke, for me.

    dan

    puhlk, is that how you "l" folks pronounce it?

    ok, here from American Heritage Dict: yoke (y½k) n.

    and: yolk (y½k) n. didn't copy well, but pronunciation is the same. "yok" with some accent over the "o".

    heck, ask the guy....
