Polk Kicks off New Monthly Friends and Fans Sweepstakes

New Program to Highlight Favorite Polk Products in Monthly Giveaway

Polk Audio®, an award-winning designer and manufacturer of high performance audio products, is following up its recent online sweepstakes with a new promotion that offers a new product giveaway every month via the company’s Facebook fan page, Twitter and Club Polk forum.

Under the terms of the program, entrants will have an opportunity to win a different Polk Audio product every month by following the link on the fan page. The April promotion, which begins on April 1, will feature a giveaway of the acclaimed SurroundBar® 6000 Instant Home Theater.

“The reaction to our March sweepstakes was fantastic,” said Al Ballard, Polk Audio’s Vice President of Marketing. “We saw a real spike in Facebook and Club Polk activity from the moment we first announced the program. The feedback was so overwhelmingly positive that it only makes sense for us to make this a recurring effort.”

To enter the contest, Facebook members must first “Like” the Polk Audio fan page at before clicking on a link that will take them to a dedicated page on the Polk Audio site. Links will also be available in the Club Polk online forum ( and via the company’s Twitter feed.

Polk Audio’s SurroundBar 6000 provides a technologically advanced 3D audio surround experience in a sleek, low-profile, self-powered enclosure and an easy-to-place wireless subwoofer that is perfect for any application where movie lovers and gamers demand high definition sound to go along with their high definition display. It provides a complete audio solution capable of convincing stereo and surround sound performance without the need for dedicated speakers. 

The sleek enclosure is less than two inches deep and only 3 3/4-inches tall, yet incorporates four specially designed Polk drivers capable of projecting 160 watts of clear, rich, enveloping sound. A simple optical connection quickly connects the system to virtually any A/V processor, while an included wireless 7-inch subwoofer powers clean, authoritative bass from away anywhere in the listening area up to 75-feet away -- without a cable.

Regarding the company’s decision to make this program accessible through a variety of venues, Ballard commented: “There’s no question that Facebook currently provides the most direct path for us to reach a new generation of audio fans while still catering to the Polk faithful, who we also reach through our popular Club Polk forum. No matter the venue, we are always looking for ways to increase the dialogue with our customers.”
