Round 2-way in-ceiling loudspeaker.
9 5/16" Diameter
High Performance, Multi-Application Custom In-ceiling Speaker
Large-scale custom installs, whether retrofitting a whole home with built-in speakers or adding built-in speakers to a whole new-build home project, are helped immeasurably by anything that helps keep the project on budget. These budget-conscious SC Series speakers are perfect for the job. They fit any application, from dining room to utility room, kitchen to guest bathroom, and deliver performance that’s good enough for the media room, too.
One-cut easy installation in existing walls or in new construction, for pros or DIYers alike, with no extra assembly and no additional cutting. (Pre-construction brackets are available separately.)
Polk’s exclusive Rotating Cam system ensures stable, secure, vibration-free placement with the turn of a screwdriver.
Polk’s proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance® technology allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.
Dynamic Balance silk dome tweeters, in aimable swivel housings, deliver clear and detailed highs, without fatigue, for greater accuracy and more realistic imaging.
Paintable grilles & flanges make SC Series speakers virtually invisible.
SC Series built-in speakers share cutout sizes and hardware components with other Polk built-in speaker series, so you can more easily upgrade your built-in speakers at any time.
Durable, moisture-resistant materials like stainless steel hardware and a powder-coated, rust-proof aluminum grille allow you to install SC Series built-in speakers in extreme install locations like kitchens, bathrooms, and transitional areas like sunrooms and covered porches.
The SC Series is timbre-matched to all other Polk loudspeakers, for mix-and-match system-building and seamless, speaker-to-speaker perfection.
The SC Series features three of the most advanced built-in loudspeakers you’ll find: A single compact built-in loudspeaker that brings actual dynamic stereo sound to locations where two speakers just won’t work; two high performance IP-ready loudspeakers, allowing whole-home audio networking on a budget for the very first time, and a high performance built-in center channel speaker!
All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

Great imaging, great sound quality at any volume, AWESOME price.
Leave a little to be desired on music sound quality, but if you're a diehard audiophile, you're probably going to spend more than $250 on a pair of speakers, perhaps the LC series?
the sound is pretty impressive for what you get. Movies and TV are reproduced without a snag. The bangs and booms maintain their integrity with great imaging at all volumes. Musically, they do leave something to be desired. I run the Polk LC60i series in another room of my house so I'm rather spoiled by that as a contrast. The music tends to sound a little thin, especially classical/jazz music when there's a piano involved. Keep in mind I say this compared to the LC60 speakers which are the most open sounding in-ceiling you might ever hear. If the speakers are being used solely for background music, they definitely hit the spot at this price point. I think you'd be hard pressed to find another speaker manufacturer that can even compare to these speakers at this price. Hope that helps!
