Polk Signature S10

Built for smooth sound

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. .

Features

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.

  • Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S10 bookshelf loudspeaker utilizes Polk's newly designed 1" Terylene tweeter to deliver clear and detailed high-end response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. 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 Certification.
  • 4" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofer: The Signature S10 bookshelf speaker employs one 4" Dynamic Balance low distortion mica-reinforced polypropylene cone woofer for clean, clear bass, better linearity, and increased dynamic midrange and midbass. This mica-reinforced polypropylene woofer features a butyl rubber surround, massive ceramic motor structure, and a high-temperature Conex fiber spider that combine to create a driver of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.

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.

  • Placement for Front Speakers: As a pair of front speakers in a home theater or stereo setup, create an equilateral triangle between the speakers and the listening position - with the speakers placed as far apart from one another as the listeners are sitting from them.
  • Placement for Surround Speakers: As surround speakers, the S10 should be placed on a side wall slightly behind and above the listening position. If you cannot place the speakers on the side walls, position them on the rear wall above the listening area.

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.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Recommendation for Crutchfield chat [ Michael  Oct 21, 2018 ]
Polk sound quality, build quality, and to match other Polk components in my 5.1.2 sound system. [ Jack  Oct 13, 2018 ]
I have a set of ELAC Uni-fi UB5 and UC5 for front stage with Denon x4300h 9.2 channel receiver. So, these speakers will be added to the surround and rear speakers to finish the 7.0 setup. I will still need a sub that will reproduce the lower frequencies and atmos height speakers. [ Satya Bhaskar  Oct 05, 2018 ]
Replace Klipsch speakers to match my Polk signature s55 with same sound. [ james  Oct 03, 2018 ]
I like the size of these speakers for the space I have for surrounds. This is the second set I'm buying to make a 5.1 system a 7.1 system since all of the equipment I just bought was recently put on sale and Crutchfield refunded me $220 plus ten percent if I chose it as a gift/rewards card. I'm sure the S15s or 20s are better but this fits my needs. [ MICHAEL BRETT  Jul 25, 2018 ]
Pairing this with S50 Fronts and S35 Center. Went with all of the smaller models due to space limitations and general aesthetic of the series. Hopefully it will still be an upgrade over my current gear. [ MICHAEL BRETT  Jul 19, 2018 ]
looking for small speakers that gave me a high range of sound, that i could mount up high on wall and not be so visible [ Wilbert  Jun 30, 2018 ]
Combination of form factor (size), quality, and price. [ keninblaine  Jun 26, 2018 ]
Spoke to Larry who assisted me with making the proper choice of speakers for my Home Theater project. He explained that I will be happy with the quality and sound of these speakers. [ MICHAEL  Jun 19, 2018 ]
Size [ Charles B.  Jun 13, 2018 ]
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 ]
Price and word of mouth [ Benny  Dec 27, 2017 ]
Small size and great reviews. [ JOSEPH  Nov 22, 2017 ]
Brand quality through years of experience with Polk. [ Richard  Sep 06, 2017 ]
These speakers have a good driver and crossover design, and I expect them to perform very well, with great dispersion and imaging. The sale price helped as well. [ A  Sep 04, 2017 ]
best match for my B&W speakers [ Thomas  Aug 14, 2017 ]
Have been listening to Polk Audio in my Car Stereo since 2011, still kicking the sound and very reliable, real, true sounding best speakers ever! Had to purchase for our home theater experience also! [ Kraig  Jul 12, 2017 ]
They are small and sound great. [ PATRICK  Jun 04, 2017 ]
Nice-looking product. Replacement for my 17-year-old Polk speakers. [ William  Jun 01, 2017 ]
40Khz response [ Ronald  May 29, 2017 ]
reviews and price/performance... [ robert  May 08, 2017 ]
Purchased Polk Audio Speakers in past, always good luck with brand [ Catherine L.  Nov 05, 2018 ]
Upgrade sound [ Jeffrey  Jul 09, 2018 ]
Good experience with s35, good reviews, good experience with Polk, and good price. [ John  Mar 09, 2018 ]
JUST WHAT I WANTED WITH A GOOD PEICE. [ Robert  Dec 29, 2017 ]
Small size and high sensitivity with high power output. Seems perfect to expand to 5.1 with my other Polk signature series speakers [ Zachary  Dec 01, 2017 ]
Larry and CJ were very helpful in helping me choose the right speakers. I purchased my receiver from Crutchfield and have been very pleased [ rlirwin  Nov 28, 2017 ]
I've been looking at these speakers for about a year now, upgrading my satellites. I couldn't pass up the price reduction!! [ james matthew  Nov 22, 2017 ]
Good reviews and compact size. [ ANATOLI  Oct 12, 2017 ]
I chose the Polk Audio S10 walnut speakers for their size and color and because they were 8 ohm and because the reviews led me to hope I would not be unhappy with the sound. [ Susan Lee  Sep 07, 2017 ]
Good reviews and small [ Robert  Jul 28, 2017 ]
compact sound for bedroom. nice looking wood finish. [ DOUGLAS  May 12, 2017 ]
