Life is good. You got the better house. The better furniture. The better car. But, why haven’t you gotten better speakers yet?

With understated elegance, the Reserve line has a minimalist design with universal appeal. Inheriting Polk’s flagship transducer array, the speakers produce exceptional sound rivalling competitor speakers that sell for twice the price. Immerse yourself in your favourite musical recordings or your weekly movie night with the new Polk Reserve.

High Definition Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter
Over 40 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” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps 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 movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.

Dual 5.25” Turbine Cones
Polk developed the Turbine cone specifically for our flagship products to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, to which human ears are particularly sensitive. These Turbine cones combine Polk’s proprietary foam core and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass. You will hear every detail and experience a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.

Polk Newly Patented X-Port (ETF)
Polk’s newly patented X-Port incorporates an Eigentone Filter (ETF) offering distortion-free, effortless bass. Consisting of a set of closed-pipe absorbers that are specifically tuned to catch and eliminate traditional speaker distortions. X-Port ensures that the upper bass and mid-range are free of port and cabinet resonances for smooth, detailed audio.

Cabinets Built for Better Performance
Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful and add nothing to the playback. Polk Reserve 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 transducer array while it faithfully reproduces recordings.

Height Module Compatible
These bookshelf speakers can be used for the front stage of any home theatre as well as side and/or rear surrounds. To add immersive vertical sound, Reserve R900 height modules are compatible (R900 sold separately).

Hi-Res Audio Performance
Your sound is only as good as your source. With Hi-Res Audio certification, the Polk Reserve R500 delivers clear and detailed high-end response. Female vocals are particularly smooth, with exceptional clarity and without colouration. Plus, a minimum support of 40kHz perfectly reproduces the latest Hi-Res audio files with improved audio extension.
