Polk Audio Signature S10
Amazing amount of sound from a good looking small package.
Polk's Signature S10 speakers fit just about anywhere. These compact satellites deliver clean, dynamic sound, no matter what you listen to. Perfect as unobtrusive surround speakers in a multichannel home theater system or for high-resolution stereo music in smaller spaces, their sleek, stylish look adds a touch of class to any room.
The S10s are made with high-quality materials for natural, low-distortion sound. Each cabinet houses a 1" high-resolution Terylene dome tweeter for clear, detailed highs and realistic reproduction of instruments and vocals. The highly efficient 4" Dynamic Balance® woofer is made of lightweight yet durable mica-reinforced polypropylene. Non-resonant MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) cabinets and anti-diffraction magnetic grilles provide an acoustically inert structure for reduced sonic interference. Polk's exclusive Power Port technology helps these ultra-compact satellite speakers deliver better low-frequency response. .

Great speakers and they look great.
In able to connect these speakers. Tjhey will be retuirned
Excellent speakers love the clarity
Great sound. Replaced a bose single cube system for my rear surround sound. Immediately could hear things that the bose just left out. Way better frequency range.
Pros: Great sound.
I'm ordering another pair to complete m
Pros: Sound that comes out of such a small package Beautiful cabinet and solid construction Magnetic grills
Cons: None, except I wanted to do all S15s for my 7.1/5.2.2 Atmos
Purchased to use as rear speakers for 5.1 system. They are excellent for their price!
Pretty good sound from these smaller speakers. Nice high, middle and low for my 3.1 entertainment system along with the Polk blackstone tl3 and Polk 111 sub. Sound pretty good too for music with Spotify stream. Thinking about another pair for rear surround sound right now.
Pros: Accruate and clear. Small but mighty. Very well built.
Cons: Nothing yet so far
Solid build and great looking little speakers. I use them as a pair of side surround speakers (along with the floor-standing S50 and central channel S30 speakers) and they works great (their are powerful enough to fill my medium size living room). I will probably get another pair of them soon to expand my 5.1 setup with rear speakers.
Great sound from small speakers. Just what I needed.
Very good sounding small speakers. I do use a subwoofer with them. I do also have some much larger tower speakers which of course sound even better. But I like also having these smaller speakers which sound great and, of course, are much less obtrusive than my bigger tower speakers. I never owned anything from Polk before, but from my experience with these speakers will now consider buying more of their speakers given how well this initial purchase worked out. The Crutchfield team was also very helpful with my selection decision.
Pros: Great sounding small speakers.
Fantastic upgrade from my older surround speakers. I run a 5.1.2 arrangement. These help establish an enveloping sound field. So far I love them. I haven't tried them as separate mains so I can't speak to their quality/utility in that regard, but as surround speakers they are utterly fantasitc
Pros: Wall mountable. Great Sound. Beautiful.
Cons: If you mount on the wall, make sure your hardware and wall board will support it. They weight ~6lb each. Not really a con, but a caution.
I'm slowly putting together a home theater system and decided to start with the pair of these little speakers. While they aren't marketed to be your front L and R speakers, I chose to set them up that way for the time being. Upon hooking them up I was instantly impressed by their clarity. It should come as no surprise that anything would be an instant upgrade from built in speakers however, the clarity was exponentially better. I cranked the volume a bit and put on an episode of a popular HBO show and I instantly noticed how much better the sound layered into the dialogue and how much more present the dialogue sounded. Very impressive. Scenes where a lot of low end frequencies were expected fell a bit short and were less dramatic however, that should be expected. That being said, there was no perceived distortion during those scenes. Overall, these little speakers outperformed my expectations and I look forward to adding other Polk Signature speakers to the mix. If you are looking for an instant upgrade to your current speakers, don't hesitate to pick these up!
Used these as my surround speakers behind and above me hanging from the ceiling and pointed downward on an angle. They really supply a whole lot of new sound that I haven't heard coming from my previous speakers that I replaced. Very nice speakers
Pros: Rock solidly built Very nice looking speaker Sounds fantastic
awesome speakers sound is great
Wonderful small speakers with amazing HD sound. If you have a subwoofer, these will provide great performance for your front left and right speakers.
Pros: small size wonderful HD sound
Very good value in a small, and inexpensive bookshelf. Look and feel like quality, very clean and solid. Nice touches like magnetic grills, leave the speaker with a polished look with and without the covers installed. Sound is great for a master bedroom, I'm running them with a sonos amp (~50W) and they are plenty loud and sound is pretty full for a small speaker (maybe bump the eq up a notch or two on the bass end). The plastic port cover thing on the back is nice, they can be placed up against the wall without preventing airflow.
Pros: clean quality build, magnetic covers
great little speakers
I ordered these for rear channels. They easily mount to the wall and are pretty low profile/unobtrusive. I have my speaker wires in wall, and these mounted up right over the wall plates. They sound good for their size.
Pros: Size, Clear sound, Mounting
These are really nice speakers with great sound. It was time to replace my old ones and this was the right choice
Size was perfect and small enough to put between shelves. Clean look and powerful enough for surround sound. Love them.
The best surround speakers I've ever had!
They look and sound great and very easy to hang on wall. Sound is crisp and clear. They added more depth to my surround system.
Pros: Good sound for this size speaker

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 S10 bookshelf loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance two-way driver array with one 1" tweeter and one 4" woofer.
Power Port Technology: The Signature S10 bookshelf incorporates Polk's Power Port technology with a specially designed 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 bookshelf 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 S10 includes an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound. The integrated magnets make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the bookshelf speaker.
Two-Way Crossover: The bookshelf speaker employs a high-performance two-way crossover array (2.5kHz) for seamless blending and optimum time alignment of the tweeter & woofer, creating a lifelike soundstage.
5-Way Binding Posts: The bookshelf 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 & Placement: The Signature S10 bookshelf speakers can be used as front and/or surround speakers in a home theater setup. They can also be used in a simple stereo application. If your AV receiver offers built-in bass management, the S10 should be set to "Small" to filter out low bass frequencies.
Mounting Options: The S10 bookshelf loudspeakers come with self-adhesive rubber feet so they will sit safely and securely on your speaker stands or shelf. The included rubber feet add approximately 0.125" to the height of the speaker. The bookshelf speakers also have a keyhole slot bracket on the back panel, allowing the speakers to be mounted on the wall using optional mounting screws (sold separately). In addition, there is a 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the back of each speaker allowing you to wall-mount the speakers with an optional mounting bracket (sold separately). A wall-mount template is provided to assist you.
Signature Series: Polk designed its Signature Series of loudspeakers to bring a big surround sound and a live music experience into the comfort of your living room at an affordable price. Featuring Hi-Res certification with a new high-resolution Terylene tweeter, redesigned Dynamic Balance drivers, precision crossovers, an anti-diffraction magnetic grille, modern cabinet styling and exclusive Power Port bass enhancing technology, Polk's Signature series loudspeakers deliver crystal clear highs, detailed midrange, and deep bass; plus they look great in almost any decor. The Signature Series by Polk consists of two center-channel speakers, three bookshelf loudspeakers, and three tower speakers.
Note: You may also want to add one of Polk Audio's powered subwoofers (sold separately) for even more bass response.

We just moved into a new house that was pre-wired for 7.1, and the Polk S10 Satellite speakers will make a great addition to my stereo setup. I plan on upgrading my receiver, center, floor, and subwoofer in the near future, but right now all I need are the satellites for surround. [ Thomas Jan 08, 2018 ]
