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.

Built for Pure Sound

The ES35’s anti-diffraction, magnetic grille minimizes sonic interference and can be easily removed to provide a striking look.

Gold-plated five-way binding posts ensure the most direct, efficient, and lossless connection possible.

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

Does the ES35 have mounting holes?

I have the RS85i in my walls for the front speakers. Would the ES35 pair well with those for my center channel? Or do you recommend something different?

Asked by: Bryans rocking
Hello, The ES35 is a good pairing for the RS85i speakers you already own. None of the center channels are specifically timbre matched to the inwall speakers but the ES35 does mesh very well with those RS85i speakers.

I would like to ceiling mount my ES35 speaker above the screen. Can you recommend good speaker mounting brackets? Also is the plastic wall mount attached to the back of the speaker strong enough to hold the speaker weight when ceiling mounted?

Asked by: Vasa
Hello, keyhole slots are provided on the back of the ES35 speaker. Unfortunately, I do not have any brackets to recommend, as the speaker, when mounted, should be firmly mounted to the wall.

Hello. I have some space issues, so may I use the ES35 as central speaker on the wall under the TV, ES15 as left and right channels, and use my 4 in ceiling Definitive Tech DI6.5 as rear channels and Dolby Atmos (5.1.2)? 

Asked by: Besouro
Hello, this would work just fine. If you need some assistance with speaker placement, please check out the guidelines that Dolby provides at this link https://www.dolby.com/about/support/guide/speaker-setup-guides/

Can the white speaker grill be painted?

Asked by: Drumfan27
Hello, these grilles are not designed to be painted. You may be able to have someone dye it for you if they are familiar with working with the acoustic cloth but it is not something we can recommend and support.

Could I connect an external amplifier to this center channel or would it be to much power my fronts are the ES20S I'm thinking of the emotiva basx a3 ?

Asked by: Danny210_
Hello, the Polk Audio ES35 center speakers' suggested amplification is 20-150 watts at 8ohms with a sensitivity rating of 88dB, the same as the ES20. This makes the speaker relatively easy to drive. After a quick look at the amplifier's specifications, it should match the ES35 and ES20 speakers well.

I have the Polk S35. Is the Polk ES35 better sounding ?

Asked by: hoya1972
Hello, We would wager it sounds better but of course that is entirely up to the listener. There has been some upgrades in the design that has helped the ES35 improve, we would recommend seeking out a demo at an authorized dealer to hear for yourself.

Hello, Can the ES35 be mounted on a soundboard type mount below the TV? My TV is over the chimney mantle. Looking to install a TV mount that can swivel down to eye level, however when lowered, the speaker would be sitting behind TV.

Asked by: Charlie7
Hello, as long as this mount can carry the 14lb that this speaker weights, then it should be fine to mount below your TV.
