The ambience of the space came through in a realistic manner that allowed me to appreciate the not just the music, but the setting where the recording was made.

Drawing from more than 45 years’ experience in developing loudspeakers, the Legend Series defines the next generation of Polk. This high-performance floorstanding loudspeaker renders the most lifelike, detailed, true stereo imaging you have ever heard. Next-generation patented SDA-PRO technology makes the loudspeakers disappear, revealing the true imaging of the original recording. The L800 features twin newly designed high resolution 1” Pinnacle tweeters, dual Turbine Cone mid-range drivers and dual 10” woofers with Enhanced Power Port.

For the first time in nearly 25 years, Polk is introducing a new SDA speaker. The Legend L800 features new patents that build on the original SDA mission of maintaining full stereo separation all the way from the source to your ears.

As a result, L800 renders the most lifelike detailed, stereo imaging you have ever heard from Polk. The speakers seem to disappear as the sonic images fill your listening room with startling realism. It does this by minimizing the inherent distortion found in all stereo speakers known as interaural crosstalk (IAC) by utilizing a second column of transducers called a dimensional array.

Conventional speakers restrict what you hear due to their failure to maintain complete stereo separation from the source to the speaker to your ears. The new dual 1” Pinnacle Tweeters add incredibly clear highs whereas two new Turbine Cones mid-range drivers deliver a detailed, smooth mid-range in the critical listening area. Dual 10” woofers, and the addition of the newly revamped Enhanced Power Port, delivers unmatched clarity, balance, depth and detail.
