Crisp and clear
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 for the Legend Series, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions.
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
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.
Hi resolution certified
Your sound is only as good as your source. With High-Resolution certification, the Polk Legend L100 delivers clear and detailed high-end response. Female vocals are smooth and detailed without coloration. Plus, a minimum support of 40kHz perfectly reproduces the latest high resolution audio files with improved audio extension.
Designed to impress
Completely redesigned from the ground up to deliver the best sounding Polk speakers ever created. this speaker is the pinnacle of the Polk promise of delivering ‘the best speaker in its’ class’.
40 years of dedication to building best in class products doesn’t happen without every single details being scrutinized, tweaked, reassessed until all the details are perfect.
Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille
Comes with a grille to cover the front baffle and a second grille for the top to cover the optional height module when installed. Computer modeled for a precision fit and to minimize sonic interference. The acoustically inert magnetic grilles offer a clean aesthetic without sacrificing sound.
Cabinets Built For Better Performance
Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful but add nothing to the playback. Polk Legend 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 transducers while faithfully reproducing recordings.
Large Dual 5-Way Binding Posts
Perfect for easy setup, they ensure the most direct, efficient, and loss-less connection possible. Dual binding posts support both bi-wire and bi-amping.
Why Polk Audio
The real question is, why anything else? We’ve always made the best speakers at the best price – that’s it.
But for storytelling’s sake, let’s back it up to 1972 where a group of friends, talented engineers, and music lovers got together with the skillset, the ambition to make the best speakers they could afford, and the attitude to change the establishment. That day, a speaker company was born with a clear vision for quality and a powerful mission for value.
Each and every day since then, all Polk products are the result of tight-knit collaboration, teamwork, and our collective passion to make great sound available to as many people as humanly possible.
A mission like that requires more than engineering expertise. It requires inventive spirit, hard-earned experience, and intuition. It’s that intuition—the most magical human ingredient—that bestows Polk products their sonic personality and pride of place in your home. To this day, design, acoustics, engineering (and ingenious, intuitive human magic) all happen under one expensive roof under the guise of democratizing sound. Because we mean it when we say great sound shouldn’t be a privilege of the few, it should be accessible and available for all.
