Polk Legend L200 Large Premium Bookshelf Speaker - Black Ash
The L200 is the premium bookshelf speaker in the Legend series that demands to be heard. Feel the energy as you are transported to the front row of a live rock concert or to enjoy the intimacy of your favorite jazz trio. The Legend standmount speakers transform your listening space by revealing every detail from the delicate finger taps of a guitarist on the fretboard to the deep bass of an orchestra’s kettle drum and to the smooth tones of your favorite singer/songwriter. This big bookshelf speaker delivers the power without sacrificing detail and fidelity. The L200 is perfect for stereo listening or as a front stage in any home theater setup.
40 plus years of tweeter innovation, design and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed by Polk Audio, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. The Pinnacle tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot” and while the critically damped rear-chamber helps to defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in music, movies, sports, and video games soundtracks.
Polk developed the new Turbine cone specifically for the Legend series to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, the frequencies our ears are so sensitive to. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and the molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass, resulting in a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass – hear every detail.
Traditional bass ports make noise (chuff) and mask the low frequency bass notes you want to hear. The new enhanced Power Port® design smoothly transitions air flow from the speaker into your listening area for louder, cleaner bass while minimizing turbulence, distortion, and port noise. Polk refined their current Power Port technology specifically for the Legend series by fine-tuning the geometry of the port flare. Hear and feel the difference; Polk Enhanced Power Port® produces less port noise and more powerful clean bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers.
CABINETS BUILT FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE
Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful but add nothing to the playback. Polk Legend cabinets, braces, and internal enclosures are carefully engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances. The result is a cabinet that rigidly holds the transducers while faithfully reproducing recordings.
REAL WOOD CABINETS
From the first hand-made cabinets built in 1972 to today’s new flagship speaker series, Polk has been designing wooden cabinets with real wood for over 45 years. Inspired by our heritage, Legend carries forward that tradition of classic design of a high-performance loudspeaker. Available in two real wood veneer finishes: brown Walnut and black Ash.
