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
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
- 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
