True Stereo

For the first time in nearly 25 years, Polk is introducing a new SDA speaker – the Polk Legend L800. The Legend L800 floorstanding speaker features new patents that build on the original SDA mission of maintaining full stereo separation all the way from the source to your ears. As a result, L800 renders the most lifelike detailed, stereo imaging you have ever heard from Polk. The speakers seem to disappear as the sonic images fill your listening room with startling realism. It does this by minimizing the inherent distortion found in all stereo speakers known as interaural crosstalk (IAC) by utilizing a second column of transducers called a dimensional array. The Legend L800 speakers are the most revealing and best sounding SDA speakers Polk has ever made.

Polk innovation, legendary SDA technology

3d audio compatibility optional height module

For the ultimate listening experience, the L800 can be used for the front stage of any home theater or as side and rear surrounds. Elevate your sound of your home theater set up with our optional Legend L900 height module (sold separately). This works with today’s new home theater technologies including: Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS:X, DTS:X Virtual, IMAX Enhanced and Auro-3D.

Patented Power Port

Better Bass By Design

For Legend Series we enhanced our patented Power Port® technology by fine-tuning the geometry of the port flare to smoothly transition air flow from the speaker into your listening area. The result? Louder, cleaner bass and more defined midrange by minimizing the turbulence, distortion, and port noise typically found in traditional ported speaker designs.

Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful but add nothing to the playback. Polk Legend cabinets, braces, and internal enclosures are carefully engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances. The result is a cabinet that rigidly holds the transducers while faithfully reproducing recordings.

Comes with a grille to cover the front baffle and a second grille for the top to cover the optional height module when installed. Computer modeled for a precision fit and to minimize sonic interference. The acoustically inert magnetic grilles offer a clean aesthetic without sacrificing sound.

L800's Dual binding posts support both bi-wire and bi-amping for the most direct, efficient, and loss-less connection possible. Plus conveniently-placed connectors for the L900 Height Module provide easy cabling and a clean presentation.

Questions

What type of amplifier is recommended for these, for best compatibility of SDA?

Asked by: bAssLover
Hi bAssLover, For the best results pout of the L800 speakers, I suggest looking at Marantz's Model 30, Model 40n, and Denon's PMA-1700NE and Denon PMA-110.

Does the SDA interconnect cables need to be connected, or can the speakers be used without them so they just function like normal speakers?

Currently have a pa SDA SRS 2.3TL driven by 2 Carver TFM55x. 4ohm specs - call 300 watt max for these new Legend - Carver drives 500 watts into 4 ohms and 375 into 8 ohms - what protection can be added to the speaker without affecting sound.

Asked by: Homer
You can utilize a pre-amp with a volume limit feature. I do this with my Marantz AV8805. Keeps ‘unauthorized’ users from damaging my system while Dad isn’t home.

Are these timbre-matched with other Polk speakers, specifically, the LSIM series speakers? Would a pair of L800 fronts match well with a set of all LSIMs in a home theater setup, for example?

What is max SPL of the L800? My decision to purchase hinges on it. 

Asked by: Matt1976
Well, at 87 dB efficiency at 1 Watt plus 3 dB for each doubling in power and 300W as the RMS power rating, the math says 111+ dB
