Polk Design Principles and Technology

Hi all,

Wanted to share this video we created a few weeks ago since I thought it was pretty interesting and would be perfect for the forum.

Most speaker brands look and sound different. Phil Jones (Director of Product Information) is joined by Scott Orth (Director of Acoustical Systems) and Michael Greco (Senior Director - Loudspeakers category) to explore Polk design decisions. Watch the full video below!

Let us know if there are any other topics you'd like for us to explore in the near future.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing the link... I shall peruse anon.

    It is interesting, isn't it, that loudspeakers do tend to have a characteristic sound -- and I am not the least bit convinced that the usual metrics/specifications used to assess loudspeaker performance tell us all that much about how they're actually sound in a real room, with any arbitrary amplfier driving them. :|

    Thanks for posting these Webinars on Youtube. I only found them in the last month or so and find them to be very informative because they are NOT marketing but show people how to get the best out of what's available today.

    Phil does a great job with these. The videos deserve a higher profile.
