Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to
determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of
resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response
and low distortion.
Enclosure: The VM10 features a stylishly
curved, aircraft quality, extruded aluminum enclosure with a polished satin
black finish. The shape of the heavy-duty non-resonant aluminum enclosure breaks
up internal standing wave resonance to give you pure, lifelike sound.
VM cabinets are lined internally with closed cell foam, which further damps the
cabinets against resonance and absorbs the back wave of the woofers. Less
vibration and internal absorption results in midrange clarity and clear mid-bass
Mix and Match: The VM30, VM20, and VM10
are voice matched and, with the addition of a subwoofer, can be combined to
create a surround system to match many room configurations and budgets.
Mounting Options: The speaker can be
mounted vertically on the supplied tabletop stand, mounted horizontally on the
supplied cradle/wall bracket, wall-mounted vertically or horizontally using the
supplied cradle/wall bracket, or mounted using an optional stand or wall
Tabletop Stand: The speaker can be mounted
to the supplied tabletop stand using the supplied hardware and one of the
speaker's two threaded inserts. When mounted on the stand, the dimensions are:
Bolt-on Bracket: The included wall mount
bracket (which doubles as a cradle) bolts onto the back of the speaker using the
supplied hardware and the built-in threaded inserts. It has two keyhole slots
and should be firmly screwed into a stud or used with a wall anchors (drywall
hardware not included). The bracket can be oriented vertically or horizontally
and the speaker can be angled as much as 30° (approximate) in either direction.
When mounted on the bracket, the dimensions are:
VM10 can sit horizontally in the
included cradle (which doubles as a wall mount bracket). The speaker can be
tilted as much as 30° (approximate) up or down. When sitting in the cradle, the
5.170" (varies slightly with the angle)
Speaker Terminals: The speaker uses
high-quality 5-way binding post speaker terminals for a secure and convenient
connection. You will need to remove a plug that's inserted in the center of the
posts if you wish to use banana plugs.
Video Shielded: The VM10 is magnetically
(or video) shielded for safe placement near your TV or computer monitor without
causing picture interference.
The Polk Audio insignia can be attached to the top or bottom of the grille,
either along the long or short side, to match the installation orientation.
