High-Resolution Hi-Fi Home Theater Slim Center Speaker

Powerful & Immersive Hi-Res Audio for Movies, TV, Music & Games

With the Signature Elite ES35 high-performance, low-profile center channel loudspeaker you’ll enjoy movies, gaming and multi-channel music with crystal-clear dialog and powerful cinematic sound—without blocking your TV. Hi-Res Certified, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible, and accessibly priced, Signature Elite ES35 fulfills the Polk promise of great sound for all.

Balanced cinematic sound

Enjoy louder lows with less distortion.

Effortless Bass

In movies, the center channel carries up to 75% of the audio content (voices, soundtracks, sound fx), yet most center speakers are only designed for voice dialogue. The ES35’s dual Polk Power Ports provide louder, lower, effortless bass, which means you’ll hear and feel impactful sound, front and center, the way the director intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. Just wow. Crisp and clear audio, something that I skimped on for years in a home setup. No longer.

Questions

Which wound be considered "better" between this speaker and the ES30? I am looking to build a new surround sound system with the Signature Elite Series speakers.

Asked by: Destrania
Hello, the ES30 offers greater frequency response if space is not an issue. The ES35 provides more flexibility with placement. With its size, the ES35 can fit in tight places and is wall mountable.

If you mount the ES35 as a front left and right speaker can you adjust the Polk logo on the grill so it’s not facing wrong direction?

Asked by: Jperk
Hello, the Polk Audio Logo on the ES35 cannot be rotated.

I just purchased the Polk Signature Elite ES35 center channel speaker in white. I wanted a discreet white speaker to go under a frame TV. The sound is great, size perfect. I was Hugely disappointed with the dark gray cover. Is there a white replacement?

Asked by: Patti
Thank you for your purchase. The provided grill is off-white/grey in color. Unfortunately, we do not offer a pure white grill option.

If space isn't a constraint and price isn't a factor, would the ES30 or ES35 have better sound for a center channel?

Asked by: jmthomp07
Both center channel speakers offer fantastic dialog reproduction. Both have their strengths. The ES30 will provide a lower frequency, were the ES35 offers a wider soundstage. Which strength will benefit you the most should come into play when deciding. If the seating arrangement is wide, consider the ES35. If it is more of a narrow seating arrangement, the ES30 may be a better choice.

As soon as I connect my es35, my amplifier’s protective circuit activates. I isolated the issue by removing one set of speakers at a time and found es35 to cause the issue. Please advise.

Asked by: Farhad
Switch the es35's with a front speaker & see if the problem still occurs 🤔 if so, it's the es35's.. if no, it's the center channel output 😏

Will this center pair well with your 700 LS in ceiling speakers?

Asked by: Ham Laker
Hello, the ES35 will pair well with the 700-LS in-ceiling speakers. However, the R350 will provide an even better pairing as both the 700-LS and the R350 have Ring Radiator Tweeters.

I plan to place the ES35 as my center channel below my OLED TV. Should I be worried about TV image distortion due to the speaker? Is there a minimum recommended distance I should keep between the speaker and the TV?

Asked by: RenT
Hello, with LED, LCD, and OLED TVs being the new standard, speakers no longer need to be magnetically shielded. Magnetic shielding was necessary with the old CRT TVs and monitors whose pictures would get distorted when a speaker was placed close to them. Modern TVs are not affected by magnets in speakers.
