About the Polk Audio LSi7
Get exceptional sound from these compact bookshelf speakers
To all appearances an ordinary speaker, the new LSi7 is revealed as a master of pristine audio reproduction when connected to your system. Few compact speakers deliver such sophisticated and incredibly alive sound. Yet, thanks to the outstanding LSi design responsible for some of the best-sounding Polk speakers we've ever heard that's exactly what you get.
Clear highs and smooth mids
How did Polk get a small bookshelf speaker to provide this kind of sound? By not treating it like one. Although some companies use top technologies and build quality in their tower models only Polk showed real care throughout the LSi Series. The LSi7 boasts a sturdy cabinet that's well-braced to eliminate muddying resonances. It has a 5-1/4" aerated polypropylene Dynamic Balance® driver that teams up with an Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC) design to deliver lush, richly textured vocals and mids. A Power Port offers satisfying, precise bass, while a 1" Ring Radiator tweeter sends out memorable, detailed highs. Once you hear it, you'll understand why audiophiles are sitting up and taking notice of the LSi series.
Great for home theater or stereo music setups
The LSi7s make excellent front left and right speakers in a small setup, or surrounds in a larger one. Nice extras include anti-diffraction grilles for spacious, accurate imaging, and two pairs of five-way, gold-plated binding post terminals for biamping or biwiring.

Dynamic Balance: 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.
Aerated Polypropylene Woofers: Each speaker uses an Aerated Polypropylene woofer cone for wide response and low distortion. For superior durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.
1" Ring Radiator Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" Ring Radiator tweeter for crisp, transparent highs. The ultra-light woven Ring Radiator Diaphragm delivers flat response, precise detail and overall accuracy. A High Frequency Waveguide prevents phase cancellations for smooth, uniform frequency response and wide dispersion. A Low Frequency Waveguide promotes laminar airflow between chambers to prevent air turbulence. This feature serves the same function as Power Port for Polk's bass systems.
Cast Aluminum Driver Baskets: Cast aluminum driver baskets resist flexing and "ringing" for ultra-tight bass and coloration-free midrange.
Frequency Response Note: The overall frequency response is 45Hz-27kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 53-26kHz.
Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC): Internal cabinet resonance can impart a "thick" character to voices. Polk's patented Acoustic Resonance Control port system overcomes this problem. In addition to the Power Port venting system, each speaker has a front-firing port that is tuned to suppress the internal cabinet resonance, resulting in smooth, natural midrange reproduction.
Low-diffraction Grilles: The speakers employ open architecture low-diffraction grilles for spacious imaging.
Power Port Venting System: Each speaker has a rear-firing Power Port venting system built into its back plate for precise deep bass response. This venting system allows air velocity to slow gradually, vastly reducing air turbulence, and delivering greater bass efficiency than conventional ports.
Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: Each speaker has two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts connected by gold-plated jumpers. Using the dual 5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers.
Wall Mounting: The Power Port back plates on each speaker have key hole slots, allowing the speakers to be mounted on the wall using optional hardware.
