Polk Audio R50 Two-Way Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
When it's time for serious music or home theater, it's time for Polk Audio's R50 floorstanding speaker, which is built to deliver years of high-quality, full-range listening. The R50 furthers the company's tradition of using high-quality materials and excellent engineering in service of exceptional sound and exceptional value. The R50's slim, tower design conserves floor space (occupying less than 1 square foot), and the speaker is ideal for both movies and music.
It's sold individually, so be sure to pick up 2 for a stereo arrangement, 4 four front and rear left/right home theater use. Other Polk Audio R-series speakers would provide perfect timbral matching for use as surround speakers, but keep in mind that most music-only surround mixes such as those heard on DVD-Audio and multichannel SACD are intended for full-range surround speakers. The R50 features Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance drivers for wide frequency response and low distortion in both its .75-inch dome tweeter and its dual 6.5-inch cone woofers. Dynamic Balance started with laser interferometry research done in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University.
Full-field laser-imaging research allowed Polk to view a driver's entire vibrating surface, revealing the resonance that develops on speaker cones as they move. That resonance is the root cause of frequency-response distortions. Knowing this helped Polk engineers find the right combination of materials, geometry, and construction techniques to tune out the offending resonance. The resulting Dynamic Balance technology produces flat frequency response, sharp detail, sonic transparency, and a speaker's ability to play dynamic programs at life-like levels without a hint of strain.
The R50 Features:
• With a minimum of fuss and expense, R Series speakers ably reproduce accurate sound with impressive volume, in attractive, solidly built cabinets.
• Superior home theater and music performance.
• Slim tower design conserves floor space, occupies less than one square foot.
• Polk Audio's exclusive Dynamic Balance drivers and tweeters for wide response and low distortion.
• Wide dispersion drivers and tweeters project sound over a wide area so every listener in a room hears open, three-dimensional sound.
• Dual 6.5 inch (165mm) drivers provide nearly the bass radiating surface area of a 10 inch woofer but with the imaging, clarity and detail advantages of smaller drivers.
• Front-firing bass port for high efficiency and powerful bass response.
• Arched grille design eliminates grille interference with the port output, lowering turbulence and distortion (and it looks real cool too!).
• Carpet spikes ensure mechanical stability on carpeted floors for precise bass response and superior imaging.
• High efficiency design allows them to be driven by unpretentious amplifiers and receivers, revealing that classic Polk sound...open, spacious and clear.
• Magnetically shielded for safe placement near TVs and computer monitors.
• 5-way binding posts provide a wide array of secure wire-hook up options.
