Polk Signature S20E Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)
Dynamic Balance Technology Driver Design – Whether upgrading your home theatre setup with an advanced Atmos configuration or enjoying your favourite music, Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you’re listening to. This patented technology analyses the speaker’s entire electro-acoustic and mechanical system for improved material selection and more efficient geometry. It pinpoints and eliminates issues that reduce speaker performance before they become a part of the finished product.
Polk Terylene Tweeter – Our Terylene dome tweeter features curvilinear formers that extend response and lower resonance. Its powerful ceramic motor structure also lowers system resonance and extends low- frequency response for better dispersion in the critical midrange, delivering clear and detailed high-frequency response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. 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.
Range Drivers – Mica-reinforced polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds, massive ceramic motor structures and high-temperature Conex fibre spiders combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion and greater durability.
Exclusive Polk Power Port Technology – Power Port® is our patented design that smoothly transitions the air flow from the speaker’s port into your listening area. It also extends the dungaree bass port, providing greater surface area to eliminate turbulence and distortion, for bigger, more musical, deep bass impact. Plus, it offers 3dB more bass response output than a traditional port.
High Sensitivity and Maximum Compatibility – Works with the most modestly powered amplifier or receiver. Whether you’re connecting them to the newest digital processor or your vintage rig, you get sound reproduction that’s spacious, clear, enveloping, and realistic. Plus, it’s compatible with latest Dolby and DTS surround sound technologies.
Two-Way Phase Optimised Crossover Array – Gives you a seamless, lifelike soundstage no matter where you’re seated in your listening room. Enhanced sweet spot for a more realistic listening experience.
Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grilles – Computer modelled for a precision fit and enhanced good looks-and made to minimise sonic interference.
Gold Plated 5-Way Binding Posts – Perfect for easy setup, they ensure the most direct, efficient, and loss-less connection possible.
Quality, critically damped Cabinet Design – Strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure that reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible colouration. And non-resonant, critically damped Meddite MDF construction, ensures low self-noise for a more lifelike sound.
Timbre-Matched – Designed with the same components throughout to achieve seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems.
Modern Styling – Curved edges offer a sensual yet powerful look that fits with any home decor—available in a stunning black or whitewashed walnut finish.
