Our take on the Polk Audio Camden Square

There's a party going on, and it's centered on Polk Audio's Camden Square. This portable Bluetooth powered speaker does more than pump out the tunes in a 360° soundfield. When you and your friends download the free Polk Audio DJ Stream app from Apple iTunes® or Google Play, the fun can start. As host, you can authorize three other friends to stream music to the Camden Square. The app builds a playlist, taking each tune in sequence.

One speaker for four DJs

Polk Audio Camden Square Bluetooth portable powered speaker

Polk's Camden Square speaker and DJ Stream app offer an innovative way to share music with friends.

Everyone with the app will see the playlist of upcoming tracks and get to vote “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs Down.” You can change DJ assignments around, so everyone has a chance to share their favorite songs. And when the party's over, the vote tally will show you which DJ had the hottest tracks.

High quality Bluetooth audio

The system features aptX® audio coding, an advanced form of Bluetooth that allows higher-fidelity sound with compatible Bluetooth devices. The Camden Square is backwards-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth, too. So you can wirelessly stream music from just about any smartphone still enjoy outstanding sound.

High-performance speaker design

Not surprisingly, Polk has engineered the Camden Square to deliver rich, full sound. It features four 2" long-throw drivers, with two side-firing rectangular passive radiators strengthening the bass. Polk's Dynamic Balance technology reduces distortion and unwanted resonance, keeping your music sounding detailed and clear. The system creates a balanced, 360° soundfield. So set it just about anywhere — on a shelf in the corner of the room, or in the middle of a picnic table.

Portable and versatile

The built-in rechargeable batteries can power the Camden Square for up to an epic 24 hours. And there's even a minijack input so you can plug in an old-school non-Bluetooth device such as a portable game console or CD player.

Satisfied customer

Music Attorney from New Orleans, LA on 11/18/2014

Initially my expectations were not met by the Camden. Possibly because I was expecting the equivalent of floor standing speakers. But as the day progressed and day turned to night I became extremely impressed with its output! Great clarity, nice bass. Be sure to turn up the volume on the speaker first such that you can maximize the potential with your device. Realistically speaking, it does its job 10x better than it should, which is stream quality music for personal use. I wouldn't attempt to throw a house party with a speaker of this size.

Pros: Great Sound! Great Batttery! Great workmanship!

Cons: None if you don't set your expectations to high. It's not a home theatre system, just a wireless speaker.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really LOVE this speaker. The sound is Amazing! There is no distortion at the highest volume and this thing ROCKS! I own quiet a few speakers and this one is turning into my favorite. This speaker also screams QUALITY. It is very well made and I love the leather around the sides. I won;t be giving up this speaker any time soon. Well worth the money spent!

Pros: Beautiful Sound Quality Well Made Battery lasts FOREVER.

Cons: None

I love Polk but not this speaker

MikeD from Richmond, VA on 1/29/2014

I was pumped to try this speaker after spending the past 8 years using a portable Altec Lansing iPod Dock that I purchased with my 60 gig iPod video first generation. It had great sound and great portability. It was finally done in by the broken plastic stand that held it upright. Well, having owned Polk Audio LS speakers and loving them for years I was sure this would be better than what I had been using. Plus the 24-hour battery life looked killer. Add in the DJ party app and I was sure I had a winner. Well turns out all is not as it seems. While the sound is pretty good it is not as good as that of my 10 year old Altec Lansing that cost only $150 ten years ago. The DJ software works as advertised, but the volume of the unit is far to low to make this speaker useable for any music party. Perhaps if the music is just to be background noise and not for dancing or entertaining then this would work. The battery life is amazing, but I imagine that is because there is very little power consumption due to the moderate volume it will achieve.

Pros: Cool design. Great sound for low volume listening or for filling a small room with sound, never distorts. Looks to be very durable design

Cons: Poor bass response, does not get loud enough. Heavy at 4.2 pounds

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Nice, deep tone that goes anywhere

Written by Zak Billmeier, Staff Writer - Creative, on 3/10/2014 10:54:00 AM

I took the Camden Square home for a weekend to give it a try. I love Bluetooth speakers for their convenience, but I have found the sound a bit lacking in a few models I have tried out. The Camden Square, however, brings some serious sound quality to the Bluetooth speaker category.

The first place I put the Square was in my kitchen. I stood it up and pushed it back into a counter top corner to keep it away from water splashes, and backed up against the wall like that really brought out the bass. I wasn't listening to anything especially bass-heavy, but I could hear the bass guitar very distinctly in the mix.

Later I placed the Camden Square in my living room, and also out on my back porch. It was more than up to the task volume-wise, and you can turn it up pretty loud. I doubt I would ever need to push it too hard, it cranks out your tunes effortlessly. I never played with the DJ/party feature, but as an easy-to-use, great-sounding powered speaker it really rocks.

Out database shows that the batteries are Lithium Ion, but it doesn't give me any further details. You may want to reach out to Polk directly for full details. [ Jeff  Feb 02, 2015 ]  Staff
