Our best surround effects loudspeaker,
with switchable Bi-pole/Di-pole operation.
The Simple Choice For Surround Performance
We believe that overall sound quality is the first, middle and last priority in the construction of any speaker. The new F/X1000 is the embodiment of this philosophy. For premium, high output digital home theater systems, especially in your large room set up, the F/X1000 is the obvious choice.
The F/X1000 features:
- Dual Dynamic Balance® drivers for wide response and low distortion
- Dual Dynamic Balance Tri-Laminate tweeters on opposing baffles for clear, detailed highs and spacious surround effects
- Switchable Dipole/Bipole operation for the greatest placement flexibility
- Anti-diffraction bezel and grille systems to minimize grille-edge reflections for more open, spacious "real life" imaging
- Acoustic Resonance Control® (ARC) Port System reduces unwanted internal enclosure resonance for utterly clear midrange reproduction.
- Built in wall bracket for easy wall mounting
- Timbre-matched to other Polk speakers for seamless, lifelike imaging
- Bass response to below 80Hz assures optimum performance in discrete channel Dolby Digital and DTS surround systems
- Real wood veneer finish
- Dual (bi-amp/bi-wire) gold-plated 5-way binding post inputs for the most convenient and secure wire connections
Surround speakers go behind you, or to the rear left and right sides of your home theater room (depending on your seating location and room layout). They envelop you in sound, especially in today's discrete multi-channel digital world. Good surround effects add to the realism of your home theater experience, and put you and your family right in the center of the action!
What is "Dipole/Bipole"?
The more "diffuse" the surround sound field, the less the listener is able to pinpoint the action, resulting in a more realistic, enveloping surround sound experience, especially when it's necessary to mount the speakers close to the listening area. For the ultimate in rear surround, choose speakers with a choice of sound field patterns, both BiPole and DiPole. Polk's F/X300i, F/X500i and F/X1000 models let you choose BiPole or DiPole at the flick of a switch depending on the speaker's placement. Place them where they look best in your home theater, and then select the pattern that provides optimum sound for you.

Room filling sound quality when placed properly.
Hmmmm............ I just can't think of any.
These things are awesome. I have a set now that go with my RT5000 set uo and I've been trying to find another pair of these to fill my back speakers. These babies are tough to come by. People hang on to these things once they get their hands on them which to me speaks a lot in regards to the sound quality. Hey, want to sell me yours?? No ?? I didn't think so !!

Handles all kind of applications. Produces bass and incredible spaciousness in movies and multi-channel music.
Thrilling surround experience, F/X 1000s are the most powerful dipole/bipoles you can ever own.

big sound fills the room where others can not.
Talk about filling the gaps. These are incredible. I had 2 in my 5.1 system and when i decided to go 7.1 I had to have another set. It was just before they were out of stock and the store had a pair in a store 2 states over. Luck for me I had family there to pick them up for me. I guess you can call me a polk fan if i will get speaker from 2 states away and wait over 3 months to get them.
