Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio R300

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.

Features

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.

Note

Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 45Hz-24kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 55-20kHz.
