New Dynamic Balance Designed Acoustic Array

Whether upgrading your home theater setup with an advanced Atmos configuration or enjoying music, Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you're listening to. This patented technology analyzes the speaker's entire electro-acoustic and mechanical system for improved material selection and more efficient geometry.

High-Resolution Audio Performance

Our newly designed Terylene dome tweeter features curvilinear formers that extend response and lower resonance. Its powerful ceramic motor structure also lowers system resonance and extend low frequency response for better dispersion in the critical midrange, delivering clear and detailed high frequency response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. Certified and capable of delivering 40kHz to support the latest high resolution audio files so it feels like you're right there in the studio or concert hall.

Image Feature

Custom Mid-Range Drivers

Mica-reinforced polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds, massive ceramic motor structures and high-temperature Conex fiber spiders combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion and greater durability.

Image Feature

Quality crafted cabinet design

Strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. And non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, with extra bracing and minimum thick baffles, ensures a more lifelike sound.

Why Polk Audio

The real question is, why anything else? We've always made the best speakers at the best price - that's it.

But for storytelling's sake, let's back it up to 1972 where a group of friends, talented engineers, and music lovers got together with the skillset, the ambition to make the best speakers they could afford, and the attitude to change the establishment. That day, a speaker company was born with a clear vision for quality and a powerful mission for value.

Each and every day since then, all Polk products are the result of tight-knit collaboration, teamwork, and our collective passion to make great sound available to as many people as humanly possible.

A mission like that requires more than engineering expertise. It requires inventive spirit, hard-earned experience, and intuition. It's that intuition-the most magical human ingredient-that bestows Polk products their sonic personality and pride of place in your home. To this day, design, acoustics, engineering (and ingenious, intuitive human magic) all happen under one expansive roof under the guise of democratizing sound. Because we mean it when we say great sound shouldn't be a privilege of the few, it should be accessible and available for all.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
