Product Research


Dynamic Balance Drivers: 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. Using just the right materials enables Polk to eliminate issues that reduce speaker performance and tune out performance-robbing resonances before they occur. Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you're listening to. The Polk Signature S10 bookshelf loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance two-way driver array with one 1" tweeter and one 4" woofer.

  • Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S10 bookshelf loudspeaker utilizes Polk's newly designed 1" Terylene tweeter to deliver clear and detailed high-end response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. It will support high frequencies up to 40kHz to perfectly reproduce the latest high-resolution audio files with improved audio extension, earning Hi-Res Audio Certification.
  • 4" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofer: The Signature S10 bookshelf speaker employs one 4" Dynamic Balance low distortion mica-reinforced polypropylene cone woofer for clean, clear bass, better linearity, and increased dynamic midrange and midbass. This mica-reinforced polypropylene woofer features a butyl rubber surround, massive ceramic motor structure, and a high-temperature Conex fiber spider that combine to create a driver of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.

Power Port Technology: The Signature S10 bookshelf incorporates Polk's Power Port technology with a specially designed rear-firing port. Power Port technology smoothly transition air flow from inside the speaker into your listening area for deep, extended bass impact while minimizing turbulence and distortion. Polk's patented Power Port technology delivers 3dB more bass response than a traditional ported speaker.

Non-Resonant Enclosure: The bookshelf speaker's strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. And non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, extra bracing, and a thick front baffle ensure a more lifelike sound. The enclosure's curved edges not only look cool, they reduce standing waves inside the cabinet for less audible coloration. The enclosure features a beautiful black washed walnut finish.

Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille: The Signature S10 includes an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound. The integrated magnets make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the bookshelf speaker.

Two-Way Crossover: The bookshelf speaker employs a high-performance two-way crossover array (2.5kHz) for seamless blending and optimum time alignment of the tweeter & woofer, creating a lifelike soundstage.

5-Way Binding Posts: The bookshelf loudspeaker features 5-way binding posts for a secure connection to your speaker wire. The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The speaker terminals are color coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

Applications & Placement: The Signature S10 bookshelf speakers can be used as front and/or surround speakers in a home theater setup. They can also be used in a simple stereo application. If your AV receiver offers built-in bass management, the S10 should be set to "Small" to filter out low bass frequencies.

  • Placement for Front Speakers: As a pair of front speakers in a home theater or stereo setup, create an equilateral triangle between the speakers and the listening position - with the speakers placed as far apart from one another as the listeners are sitting from them.
  • Placement for Surround Speakers: As surround speakers, the S10 should be placed on a side wall slightly behind and above the listening position. If you cannot place the speakers on the side walls, position them on the rear wall above the listening area.

Mounting Options: The S10 bookshelf loudspeakers come with self-adhesive rubber feet so they will sit safely and securely on your speaker stands or shelf. The included rubber feet add approximately 0.125" to the height of the speaker. The bookshelf speakers also have a keyhole slot bracket on the back panel, allowing the speakers to be mounted on the wall using optional mounting screws (sold separately). In addition, there is a 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the back of each speaker allowing you to wall-mount the speakers with an optional mounting bracket (sold separately). A wall-mount template is provided to assist you.

Signature Series: Polk designed its Signature Series of loudspeakers to bring a big surround sound and a live music experience into the comfort of your living room at an affordable price. Featuring Hi-Res certification with a new high-resolution Terylene tweeter, redesigned Dynamic Balance drivers, precision crossovers, an anti-diffraction magnetic grille, modern cabinet styling and exclusive Power Port bass enhancing technology, Polk's Signature series loudspeakers deliver crystal clear highs, detailed midrange, and deep bass; plus they look great in almost any decor. The Signature Series by Polk consists of two center-channel speakers, three bookshelf loudspeakers, and three tower speakers.

Note: You may also want to add one of Polk Audio's powered subwoofers (sold separately) for even more bass response.

Customer Q&A

7 questions already asked

can these speakers be mounted on a ceiling and does it have mounting brackets?
[ Susie  Dec 09, 2020 ]
5 answers
Yes, I have 4 mounted to the ceiling and 2 on the wall. But that's more of a function of the speaker mounts which are NOT included.
[ Vinh  Dec 11, 2020 ]
No, they can be wall mounted and have a built in bracket for that- but not for ceilings.
[ MARCUS  Dec 11, 2020 ]
I would not recommend ceiling mounting because of its weight (6 pounds), unless you plan on attaching to a cross beam or ceiling is of a good thickness and solid. The back has a keyhole and screw hole on the back for stand mounting, but no brackets.
[ Steven  Dec 10, 2020 ]
Yes and yes.
[ jim  Dec 09, 2020 ]
Although small, I would not recommend mounting them on a ceiling. Yes, they come with built in wall bracket.
[ GERARD  Dec 09, 2020 ]
Can the S10 be set at an 80hz crossover given their suppose to go as low as 67hz?
[ ENRIQUE ANTONIO  Sep 24, 2020 ]
2 answers
You should be able to.
[ GERARD  Dec 09, 2020 ]
There's no switch to accommodate any settings. It's automatic, it's based on the frequency that's coming in from your source.
[ RYAN  Oct 15, 2020 ]
Are these magnetically shielded for placement close to my 70" TV?
[ MICHAEL  Oct 23, 2021 ]
4 answers
I can't imagine your 70" TV is a CRT (cathode ray tube) TV, so why is magnetic shielding a concern for you? Seriously, do tell. I'm certain the S10 speakers are not magnetically shielded, but they are safe to place next to a flat screen TV.
[ TIMOTHY  Oct 24, 2021 ]
Polk is indicated to be used as side or rear in 5.1, 7.1, or 9.1 home theater, whichsuggest they may be not appropriate for use close to the TV
[ ROBERT  Oct 23, 2021 ]
I have them sitting right at the left and right edges of my flat sceen TV - Its a Samsung, so far no issues.
[ JOSEPH  Oct 23, 2021 ]
I haven them on speaker stands about a foot away from a 47" LG television and do not have a problem with the picture. Not sure how close you need the speakers to be to the television. The directions / owner's manual for the Polk signature series states that the center channel models which would be close to the TV also note that for older TV's they are not magnetically shielded. This leads me to believe that other speakers in the series are not shielded either and if you have a newer TV it is not an issue.
[ MICHAEL  Oct 23, 2021 ]
I am looking for floor stands for these. Do they have holes in the bottom for mounting to stands?
[ John  Apr 18, 2021 ]
10 answers
There are no holes in the bottom.
[ MATTHEW  Apr 19, 2021 ]
No, the bottom surface is smooth. There is a keyhole on a bracket on the back for wall mounting.
[ MARK E  Apr 18, 2021 ]
No holes on bottom for mounting stands.
[ JOSEPH  Apr 18, 2021 ]
No, there is nothing on the bottom. As can be seen in the wall mount template included in the downloadable owner's manual, the removable plastic piece on the back has a keyhole slot, and there is also a screw hole in the middle of the back (between the plastic piece and the terminal block). I have them mounted on an old pair of metal stands (had since the early 90s). The stands have a flat metal plate that the speakers sit on. To keep the speakers from falling off in case stand is bumped or moved, I have two long strips of hook-and-loop fastener (like Velcro) wrapped around each speaker (one for the back side of the plate and one for the front side of the plate. The strips loop around the bottom of the plate and over the top of the speaker. Not the best look, but it's effectual.
[ TIMOTHY  Apr 18, 2021 ]
Nope they don't, only from the back.
[ Carlos  Apr 18, 2021 ]
Not on the bottom, but they do have threaded mounting holes on the back to screw onto speaker stands.
[ Sidney  Apr 18, 2021 ]
I don't believe they have a hole on the bottom, but they do have a hole on the back. I used Mounting Dream model MD5402 stands.
[ DARREN  Apr 18, 2021 ]
They do. I used Mountain Dream model MD5402 stands.
[ DARREN  Apr 18, 2021 ]
No.. they do not have holes in the bottom.
[ ERIC  Apr 18, 2021 ]
They do not, there is however a hole at the top for wall mounting.
[ GREGORY  Apr 18, 2021 ]
Currently I have a pair of Memorex WM200 for surround speakers. Would I notice any difference if I used these instead?
[ CLIVE  Oct 30, 2020 ]
3 answers
Guaranteed. If memory serves right Memorex WM200 are pretty old models, just the newer tech and quality of build alone make these better. These are quality speakers, and very solid and heavy for the size. I have these as surrounds and they work great, even with pretty long runs.
[ ZACHARY  Oct 30, 2020 ]
Yes, you would notice the difference right away. I use them for my rear speakers (5.1). Solid build. Music sounds great. I tested them using a few SACDs. I was impressed with the clarity.
[ FIDEL  Oct 30, 2020 ]
These Polk S10 speakers are great sounding speakers and you get good bang for the buck, especially when they are on sale. In my case they replace Advent Prodigy floor standing speakers and the Polk's sounded great. Happy with the sound as mains in a bedroom. Doubt you will find someone who replaced your speaker brand with these Polk S10's so go ahead an pull the trigger. Crutchfield has a generous return policy.
[ MICHAEL  Oct 30, 2020 ]
It appears that these are simply more compact than the S15s but the specs are essentially the same. Is there any advantage in buying the larger S15s if I plan to use as the two main front speakers in a 7 channel system? I already have 5 satellite speakers and a subwoofer. I'm guessing that the difference is primarily the size and that the extra cost is due to that but i want to confirm.
[ Shawn  Dec 23, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.
[ KRISTINA  Dec 29, 2018 ]  Staff
Anyone who has purchased using them as stereo speakers and not satellite speakers? I am going back and forth between the 4" and 5.25" woofer models. The size of the cabinet increasing substantially for the 5.25" model. I will be using with my Yamaha 5.1 system as the main stereo pair. My setup in the new house is in the corner. The media cabinet is about 12' from the main listening area. The media cabinet is 59" wide. I don't think placing them on the media cabinet will give enough stereo separation at this distance. I can wall mount the smaller, but not the larger speaker. I discussed with Crutchfield, but I would like some real user input please.

I have both the s10 and s15 I have used for surround speakers. Based on the difference I've heard, I would try to go with the s15 for main speakers. They are a good bit larger, and you are right, you can't hang them , but to me the s15 does have the more substantial sound quality and depth you would want in main front speakers.
[ Sidney  Apr 18, 2021 ]
I have a pair of S10's on a small table. They are only 4' apart and the stereo sound fine. You could probably angle the speakers slightly out to disperse the sound to a wider sound field. Just a suggestion.
