Our take on the Polk Audio R300 by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
You don't need to spend a fortune on floor-standing speakers to get great audio performance. The budget-friendly R300 uses proven Polk technologies to create room-filling sound with your favorite movies and music. And since the R300's slim design takes up less than one square foot of floor space, you won't need to sacrifice a lot of room to enjoy big, rich tower-speaker sound.
Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance® woofer and tweeter deliver clear, vibrant sound with minimal distortion. The speaker's solidly built cabinet helps eliminate the internal vibrations that can lead to "muddiness" in midrange and mid-bass frequencies. You get accurate highs and mids, along with tight bass. Five-way binding posts provide a secure connection to your receiver or amp, and a variety of speaker-wire hookup options.

Single Speaker: The Polk R300 is packaged as a single floor-standing speaker, and are priced individually.
Dynamic Balance: 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.
Composite Woofers: The speaker has a 6-1/2" Dynamic Balance mineral filled polymer composite woofer housed in an acoustically inert stamped driver basket for clean and accurate mid/bass. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.
Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The speaker has a 3/4" Dynamic Balance silk/polymer composite dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet for clear, detailed highs.
Video Shielded: The speaker is magnetically shielded for safe placement near your video sources.
Mylar Capacitors: The speaker utilizes Mylar bypass capacitors to extend its high frequency response and improve detail and transparency.
Bass Port: A rear-firing bass port gives you deep, punchy bass response.
Grille: The speaker features anti-diffraction grilles that minimize grille diffraction for spacious, three-dimensional imaging.
5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Feet: The speaker is equipped with four non-adjustable screw-on wooden feet. No carpet spikes are included.
Timbre-Matched: The Polk R300 is designed to fit into any Polk Audio home theater or multi-channel music system for a more realistic seamless surround sound environment.
Applications: A pair of R300s can be used as front or rear speakers in your home theater application or can be used as your main stereo pair for music listening.
Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 45Hz-24kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 55-20kHz.
