L100 PREMIUM BOOKSHELF SPEAKER
Sound so big, you’ll wonder ‘where is the rest of the speaker?’ With its 1” tweeter and a 5.25” woofer, your significant other won’t mind the size and you won’t sacrifice any sound quality. There’s no going back to traditional bookshelf speakers after you hear the L100’s. New Polk technologies like the High Definition Pinnacle Tweeter, Turbine cone, and enhanced Power Port will give you an uncompromised listening experience. Polk Legend bookshelf speakers deliver deep effortless bass, amazingly smooth and detailed mid-range and ultra-clear imaging. The L100 is the little bookshelf that competes with speakers twice its price.
Polk’s goal since its founding has been to build great loudspeakers that virtually transforms the listener’s room into the scene of the recorded performance. To meet this challenge, Polk engineers and designers must constantly innovate and agonize over every detail. Nothing is left to chance and nothing unnecessary is ever added. The results are best-in-class loudspeakers that outperform their competition for half the price, earning numerous awards, patents, and most importantly Polk speaker owners that swear by the brand.
NEW HIGH RESOLUTION PINNACLE RING RADIATOR TWEETER
40 plus years of tweeter innovation, design and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed by Polk Audio, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. The Pinnacle tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot” and while the critically damped rear-chamber helps to defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in music, movies, sports, and video games soundtracks.
NEW 5.25" TURBINE CONE
Polk developed the new Turbine cone specifically for the Legend series to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, the frequencies our ears are so sensitive to. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and the molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass, resulting in a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass – hear every detail.
BETTER BASS BY DESIGN ENHANCED POWERPORT
Traditional bass ports make noise (chuff) and mask the low frequency bass notes you want to hear. The new enhanced Power Port® design smoothly transitions air flow from the speaker into your listening area for louder, cleaner bass while minimizing turbulence, distortion, and port noise. Polk refined their current Power Port technology specifically for the Legend series by fine-tuning the geometry of the port flare. Hear and feel the difference; Polk Enhanced Power Port® produces less port noise and more powerful clean bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers.
