Questions

Hi   I want to upgrade my current system just 3.1.  Center channel CSi A4.  Left & Right fronts. RT14.  New sub. AVR. Yamaha TSR - 700.  What would you recommend 

Asked by: Tlgolf
Hi Tigolf, Our recommendation is the Rereve Series speakers in our line-up. The Reserve Series offers a significant upgrade over your existing 3.1 set-up. The bigger the speaker, the bigger the sound. https://www.polkaudio.com/en-us/series/reserve

Hi, I have a onkyo tx-nr686 av with polk monitor 60 tower speakers and a older infinity Beta c250 center speaker that just doesnt sound very clear would this be a good replacement or would a different polk center speaker work with the m60 tower speakers?

Asked by: mike m
Hello, The Signature Elite ES30 is a good match for the M60 speakers. It is difficult to say how much of this symptom is pointing at the Infinity Beta C250 and how much to the Onkyo TX-NR686

I am looking for a center speaker to go with a Yamaha RX-A840 receiver and a pair of Polk Audio Monitor 10 speakers. Would the ES-30 work with this setup?

Asked by: JBM1
Most definitely. The Polk Audio ES30 center speaker should blend nicely into your system. To help with any tone differences, I recommend running the room calibration (YPAO) as a starting point and making any necessary changes manually. Depending on your needs, the ES30 center channel brings a bit of a brighter sound resulting in crisp detailed Dialogue. For more of a refined sound (warmer), you may also consider the Polk R300 center channel speaker.

If the speaker has drops to 4ohms at higher volumes does the amplifier need to be compable of providing a 4ohm output or would a 6-8 ohm amplifier work fine?

Asked by: Grantvett
An amplifier rated at 6-8 ohms can typically handle quick/short bursts of 4 ohms and will not pose a problem for the ES30 center channel speaker or the connected amplifier.

Should I set the ES30 as large or small during my AV receiver setup? I have a 3.0 setup with 2 Polk Monitor 60 and the ES30 as my center channel. Running a Denon AVR-S660H.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello, the Polk Audio ES30 can be set to either Large or Small depending on the room and desired playback. Room acoustics will also come into play in determining the final setting. With your current setup, I recommend setting the ES30 to Small at 60Hz. An experiment between 60 and 80 Hz is encouraged. If you tend to listen at higher volume levels or the speaker is installed in a cabinet, not on a top shelf, Small at 80Hz may be the preferred crossover setting.

Whag is the nominal impedence of the speaker itself? Confused with the statement of compatible with 4-8ohm outputs. Is the max 150watt per channel peak power or rms?

Asked by: Grantvett
Hello, the Polk Audio ES Signature line of speakers is relatively easy to drive and is compatible with amplifiers that provide 4 and 8-ohm loads. Under everyday listening environments, low to medium volume levels, the ES30 will draw 20-30 watts at 8 ohms. The speaker may draw 40-60 watts at reference volume levels and drop to 4 ohms in short quick bursts during high peak volume levels. 20-150 recommended watts is RMS.
