About the Polk Audio LSiFX
Experience your movie soundtracks unlike ever before
When it comes to making a movie soundtrack come to life all around you, it's hard to beat dipole/bipole surrounds like the LSiFX speakers from Polk. These flexible speakers have 45° angled driver arrays, giving you the perfect mix of direct and indirect sound. Each array sports a 1" Ring Radiator tweeter and a 5-1/4" aerated polypropylene Dynamic Balance driver the incredibly robust, natural sound will envelop you.
Versatile design and placement
When it comes to placement and listening preferences, you can change the phase relationship between driver arrays with the handy dipole/bipole switch. A bipole setting is great for placing the speakers behind your listening position, and provides clear, directional sound. Dipole usage, on the other hand, is ideal for placement to the side of your listening position and results in a more diffuse soundfield. Wall-mounting is simple, thanks to the built-in keyhole slot. Plus, with a sophisticated, high-gloss black finish, the LSiFX makes a nice addition to any room. Timbre-matched to Polk's LSi line of speakers.

Tweeter: The LSiFX uses the same Ring Radiator tweeters as the rest of the LSi Series. This produces a seamless front stage and lifelike surround environment. 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.
Basket: The cast aluminum driver baskets resist flexing and "ringing" for ultra-tight bass and coloration-free midrange.
Timbre-Matched: Timbre-matched with the LSi Series for a seamless, realistic surround sound experience.
Enclosure: The speaker has a triangular shape with the speaker faces angled at 45 degrees. Both faces have a tweeter and a woofer and one face also has a switch for selecting Dipole or Bipole operation.
Grille: The open architecture low diffraction grille is used for spacious imaging.
Power Ports: Dual rear-firing Power Ports built into the back plate provide distortion-free bass and surprisingly deep bass response.
Bi-Amplification: Since this speaker may be bi-amplified, you can improve the sound by using separate amplifiers for the tweeter and woofers. Note that the jumpers connecting the 2 pair of 5-way binding posts must be removed when bi-amplifying.
Placement: Designed for use only as rear surround speakers.
Wall Mounting: The Power Ports double as convenient wall mounting brackets with key hole slots.
Dipole/Bipole Switch: There is a switch that allows the speaker to be used as a Dipole (out of phase) or Bipole (in phase) speaker. If you're mounting the speakers on the side walls in line with your listening position, the dipole mode will create a diffuse, ambient soundfield. If you're placing them behind your position, the bipole mode fires the drivers in phase to flood your room with surround sound. When used with a Dolby Digital system, the surround speaker setting should be set to small.
