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 S35 center-channel loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance
multi-driver array with one 1" tweeter and six 3" woofers.
- Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S35 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
- Six 3" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofers: The Signature S35 center-channel speaker employs six 3" 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 S35 center-channel
incorporates Polk's Power Port technology with two specially designed
rear-firing ports. 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 walnut finish.
Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille: The
Signature S35 includes an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound.
The integrated magnets make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the
Two-Way Crossover: The center-channel speaker employs a
high-performance two-way 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).
Applications: The Signature S35's primary use is as a center-channel
loudspeaker for home theater applications. But, it can also be used as a left
and right front or rear speaker in stereo and home theater setups. If your AV
receiver offers built-in bass management, the S35 should be set to "Small" to
filter out low bass frequencies.
Placement & Mounting Options: The Signature S35 can be mounted
horizontally as a center channel speaker, under or above your flat-panel TV. You
can simply place the center-channel speaker on a table-top or shelf, or
wall-mount the center-channel using its integrated keyhole slots on the back.
Because the S35 is only 4.1875" tall, it will not block the screen or IR remote of
most TVs (the included rubber increase the height of speaker by 0.125"). The speaker can also be wall-mounted vertically using the integrated
keyhole slots. A wall-mount template is provided (mounting screws not included).
Note: The speaker cannot be mounted vertically on a table-top or
shelf (only wall-mounted vertically).

loudspeakers to bring a big surround sound and a live
