Technology & Features

SDA Surround Sound Technology (select models)

Invented by Polk. Patented by Polk. Perfected by Polk. The original surround sound technology that exploded onto the scene in the early 80s is now digital. SDA technology is what sets SurroundBar speakers apart from the crowd: They don’t depend on room acoustics or perfect placement to achieve more convincing surround-sound effects! Matthew Polk, the inventor of SDA Surround technology, calls it “a mixture of acoustical engineering, psychoacoustic principles and magic!” Read Matt Polk’s original SDA Whitepaper for more info.

Polk Digital Logic® Technology (select models)

Polk presents 3-D audio: combining two groundbreaking, patented technologies to produce an audio environment that can only be described as 3-dimensional. Polk’s proprietary SDA surround technology in conjunction with Polk Digital Logic processing technology produces a rich, enveloping listening experience. It reaches out beyond your TV screen to put you in the center of the action.

Engineered to be Lightweight, But Never a Lightweight

Lightweight and stiff cone materials, compact neodymium magnet structures, rigid light alloy baskets and superior enclosure materials keep even the largest models of the SurroundBar Series lightweight without interferring with high performance standards.

Tuned for Surprising Bass

Most SurroundBar models include built-in keyhole slots for easy wall-mounting, as well as base units for shelf-top or furniture-top mounting.

There are no complex on-screen menus, and there’s no calibration needed. All connections are supplied, simply plug the bars into your processor (select models) or merely into a wall socket, and you’ve entered the exciting world of single-speaker surround sound.
