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 S30 center-channel loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance
two-way driver array with one 1" tweeter and two 5.25" woofers.
- Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S30
center-channel loudspeaker utilizes Polk's newly designed 1" Terylene
tweeter to deliver clear and detailed high-end response for improved vocals
in movies and music. 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.
- Two 5.25" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofers: The
Signature S30 center-channel speaker employs two 5.25" Dynamic Balance low
distortion mica-reinforced polypropylene midrange cone woofers for clean,
clear bass, better linearity, and increased dynamic midrange. These
mica-reinforced polypropylene midranges feature butyl rubber surrounds,
massive ceramic motor structures, and high-temperature Conex fiber spiders
that combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean,
clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.
Power Port Technology: The Signature S30 center-channel

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 center-channel 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 S30 includes
an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound. The integrated magnets
make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the center speaker.
Two-Way Crossover: The center-channel speaker employs a
high-performance two-way cascading crossover array (2.5kHz) for seamless blending and
optimum time alignment of the tweeter & woofers, creating a lifelike soundstage.
5-Way Binding Posts: The center-channel 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).
