L100 Premium Bookshelf Speaker 


Sound so big, you’ll wonder ‘where is the rest of the speaker?’ With its 1” tweeter and a 5.25” woofer, your significant other won’t mind the size and you won’t sacrifice any sound quality. There’s no going back to traditional bookshelf speakers after you hear the L100’s. New Polk technologies like the High Definition Pinnacle Tweeter, Turbine cone, and enhanced Power Port will give you an uncompromised listening experience. Polk Legend bookshelf speakers deliver deep effortless bass, amazingly smooth and detailed mid-range and ultra-clear imaging. The L100 is the little bookshelf that competes with speakers twice its price. 

 

Polk’s goal since its founding has been to build great loudspeakers that virtually transforms the listener’s room into the scene of the recorded performance. To meet this challenge, Polk engineers and designers must constantly innovate and agonize over every detail. Nothing is left to chance and nothing unnecessary is ever added. The results are best-in-class loudspeakers that outperform their competition for half the price, earning numerous awards, patents, and most importantly Polk speaker owners that swear by the brand. Don’t take our word for it – go listen and you’ll believe. 


New High Resolution 

Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter

40 plus years of tweeter innovation, design and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed by Polk Audio, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. The Pinnacle tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot” and while the critically damped rear-chamber helps to defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in music, movies, sports, and video games soundtracks.

New 5.25" Turbine Cone

Polk developed the new Turbine cone specifically for the Legend series to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, the frequencies our ears are so sensitive to. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and the molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass, resulting in a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass – hear every detail.

Better Bass by Design

Enhanced PowerPort

Traditional bass ports make noise (chuff) and mask the low frequency bass notes you want to hear. The new enhanced Power Port® design smoothly transitions air flow from the speaker into your listening area for louder, cleaner bass while minimizing turbulence, distortion, and port noise. Polk refined their current Power Port technology specifically for the Legend series by fine-tuning the geometry of the port flare. Hear and feel the difference; Polk Enhanced Power Port® produces less port noise and more powerful clean bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers.

Compliments your Home Theater

Can be used for the front stage of any home theater, as well as side and rear surrounds. Legend Height Module (L900) are only compatible with floorstanding models.

Premium, Large 5-way Binding Posts

Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille

For over 45 years, Polk Audio has been designing, engineering and voicing amazing sounding loudspeakers, sound bars and smart speakers. Polk engineers, prototypes, tests, and listens to every aspect of its loudspeakers in their Baltimore Maryland USA engineering facility.

LIMITED WARRANTY, BUILT TO LAST

The Legend speaker series is built to last. Featuring a best-in-class 5-year limited warranty, with a free 5-year extension when you register your product (non-transferable).

CABINETS BUILT FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE 

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.


Real Wood Cabinets

From the first hand-made cabinets built in 1972 to today’s new flagship speaker series, Polk has been designing wooden cabinets with real wood for over 45 years. Inspired by our heritage, Legend carries forward that tradition of classic design of a high-performance loudspeaker. Available in two real wood veneer finishes: brown Walnut and black Ash.
