Available Now: Polk Audio Announces Reserve Loudspeaker Series


Polk Audio has announced their brand new series of loudspeakers, which they have titled the Reserve Series. With nine different speakers from center channel to floor-standing, this new series from Polk innovates their signature sound and design to extend the legendary technology audio that they continue to deliver. Read more about the Polk Series below.



The R700 offers uncompromising sonic performance. This full throttle loudspeaker adds two 8” woofers to deliver massive impact with striking audio clarity and detail. Perfect for use as a reference stereo pair or as the cornerstone of the ultimate home cinema.



The R600 represents the ultimate in performance and value, delivering killer flagship sound at an unbeatable price. With the addition of two 6.5” turbine cone woofers and Power Port(R) 2.0, the R600 perfectly balances sonic impact with rich and detailed audio.



Offering a balance of size and power, the R500 loudspeaker is perfect for both listening in a stereo pair or within a surround system. It delivers standout sound from a narrow, elegant cabinet that seamlessly fits into any room.



The R400 offers unrivalled power and clarity from a center channel speaker. The addition of two 6.5” turbine cone woofers and Polk’s unique X-Port technology means it delivers enormous yet balanced sound, ideal for the ultimate home theater system.



The R350 is an incredibly versatile speaker. Use as a traditional center channel to deliver crisp, clear dialogue or add two additional R350s vertically mounted on each side of your television to create an unobtrusive Left/Right/Center front stage.



At only 19-inches wide, the Polk Reserve R300 compact center channel fits beautifully into any home theater setup. With a 1-inch Pinnacle tweeter and dual 5.25” Turbine woofers, you will enjoy crisp, clear vocals and intelligible dialogue for your favorite movies and shows.



As the larger bookshelf speaker in the series, the R200 excels in delivering extra bass power thanks to its 6.5” turbine cone woofer and larger cabinetry. Perfect for listening in a stereo pair, as part of a front stage, or as surround components in a larger system.



The R100 is a versatile small speaker that is great in a compact stereo pair, as part of a front stage, or as surround components in a larger system. Its diminutive size means it's at home on a bookshelf, on a stand or even mounted to the wall.



Add R900 height modules to access an IMAX-enhanced world of multidimensional sound. Its unique design means that it can sit atop other Reserve Series speakers or be mounted to the wall, unlocking the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X capabilities of the Reserve Series.
