Frequently Asked Questions

How do I update the firmware on the Polk Magnifi Mini?

To update the firmware on the Polk MagniFi Mini, you must be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or a cable using the built-in Ethernet port on the back of the MagniFi Mini (network cable not included). Hardwired connections via Ethernet do not need any additional setup. If you plan to get updates via WiFi, you will need to download the Google Home app (free from Apple App Store or Google Play Store) and follow the directions to connect the MagniFi to your network. Once it's connected to the Internet, updates will occur automatically overnight.

What is the USB port on the Polk MagniFi Mini used for?

The USB port is for manufacturing purposes only. It cannot be used for firmware updates nor can you play music through it.

Why does the bottom of the Polk MagniFi Mini feel warm to the touch?

The MagniFi Mini is a network active device that includes Google Cast / Google Home. It is constantly searching your Wi-Fi network to remain connected, or to find out if you're trying to stream music or other audio. For that reason, some of the electronics in the sound bar remain active even when it enters "sleep" mode, letting you easily stream music over Wi-Fi when you want to. Note that the warmth you feel will not damage the speaker in any way and passes all Safety and Regulatory requirments.

Why am I hearing sound from the Polk MagniFi Mini and my TV at the same time?

Make sure to turn off your TV's internal speakers to hear sound strictly from the Polk MagniFi Mini.

Will the Polk MagniFi Mini eventually run cooler?

We have found ways to turn off several of the internal electronics in "sleep" mode so that the MagniFi Mini can run cooler. You can look forward to this update with the release of our new OTA software that installs automatically as long as the sound bar is connected to your Wi-Fi network. All OTA updates are pushed overnight.

If playing back 2 channel content from apps on my game console, the audio quality is bad from my soundbar: Dialogues are recessed and the sound gets muddy. What can I do to improve?

Gaming consoles like the PS4 or the XBox One S / XBox One X can be set to output sound in 2 channel PCM or bitstream audio as Dolby Digital or DTS. If you set your console to Dolby Digital or DTS, the game console outputs all audio regardless of the original format as 5.1 signals in Dolby Digital and DTS.

If you are playing 2 channel sounds from, e.g. YouTube app of the game consoles, soundbars like the Magnifi Max SR decode the whole signal and assign the channels as they are present in the original stream. Since there is only sound from Front left and Front right, the center speakers as well as the surround speakers will not play any sound resulting in a muddy sound.

If you configure the game console to output 2 channel PCM, 2 channels signals will be just output as such. The Magnifi Max SR then uses an up-mixer to generate the missing channels such as Center and Surround resulting in a much clearer center image and surround sound effects.

Therfore, it is strongly recommended to configure your gaming console according to number of channels in the source material

How do I reset my Signa Solo? 

If you experience issues with your Signa Solo or the supplied remote control, it may be necessary to reset to factory defaults.

To reset your device, turn it on and press and hold the button "POWER", "SOURCE" and "VOL+" on the top of the product for at least 10 seconds. After this, all settings of the Bar are erased. For the Bar, all LEDs will be flashing.
