High Resolution HiFi Home Theatre Speaker
Amazing sound and true value, the R100 inherits the 1” Pinnacle tweeter and 5.25” Turbine cone from our flagship Legend series for renowned Polk clarity and imaging. With a minimalist design, this speaker fits neatly into any décor. Our newly patented Polk X-Port delivers deep, effortless bass compared to traditionally ported speakers.
WHAT BETTER SOUNDS LIKE
As we get older, we learn what better looks like, feels like, tastes like and even drives like. But nobody teaches us what better sounds like. Better isn’t best – it’s the road to best.
FLAGSHIP HI-RES RING RADIATOR TWEETER
Over 40 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” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps 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 movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.
Polk developed the Turbine cone specifically for our flagship products to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, to which human ears are particularly sensitive. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass. With four 4” Turbine woofers, you will hear every detail and experience smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.
PATENT PENDING X-PORT
Polk’s newly patented X-Port incorporates an Eigentone Filter (ETF) offering distortion-free, effortless bass. Consisting of a set of closed-pipe absorbers that are specifically tuned to catch and eliminate traditional speaker distortions. X-Port ensures that the upper bass and mid-range are free of port and cabinet resonances for smooth, detailed audio.
CABINETS BUILT FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE
Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful and add nothing to the playback. Polk Reserve cabinets, braces, and internal enclosures are carefully engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances. The result is a cabinet that rigidly holds the transducer array while it faithfully reproduces recordings.
HI RES CERTIFIED
Your sound is only as good as your source. With Hi-Res Audio certification, the Polk Reserve R100 delivers clear and detailed high-end response. Female vocals are particularly smooth, with exceptional clarity and without coloration. Plus, a minimum support of 40kHz perfectly reproduces the latest Hi-Res Audio files with improved audio extension.
