SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK // Polk - Writ­ten by STEVE MAY

As de­mand for new gen­er­a­tion pre­mium sound sys­tems heats up Polk whose prod­ucts are dis­trib­uted by In­ter­dyne has launched a pair of front-fir­ing 10-and 12-inch longth­row sub­woofers as part of its Home Theatre Se­ries (HTS).

Fea­tur­ing the brand’s Pow­erPort tech­nol­ogy, de­signed to re­duce port noise and an ex­tended bass im­pact, the mod­els em­ploy 200W and 400W Class D am­pli­fiers re­spec­tively.

The subs sport stan­dard LFE In and gold-plated phono line level in­puts for easy in­te­gra­tion, with con­trols for vol­ume, low pass fil­ter, phase, and a 12V trig­ger for on/off power switch­ing Subs.

The cab­i­nets uses a rigid and acous­ti­cally in­ert en­clo­sure and fea­tures curved edges, to more eas­ily blend with home dé­cor. Non-res­o­nant Med­dite MDF con­struc­tion, with ex­tra brac­ing, re­duces un­wanted in­ter­nal stand­ing waves.

“Tight bass is an in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant fac­tor to any au­dio sys­tem. Our HTS Sub­woofers pro­vide in­creased am­pli­fi­ca­tion, im­proved driver con­struc­tion and great dy­namic range, all fac­tors that are go­ing to com­pletely amaze and de­light lis­ten­ers,” says Michael Greco, global brand di­rec­tor, Polk Au­dio. “When it comes to sub­woofers, ef­fi­ciency and ac­cu­racy are ab­so­lutely cru­cial to de­liver clean, chest-thump­ing bass. There­fore, we chose to lever­age Polk’s Pow­erPort tech­nol­ogy for the HTS Sub­woofers—it dra­mat­i­cally re­duces port tur­bu­lence and noise while pre­serv­ing depth and clar­ity.”
