LEGEND L800 // Premium Floorstanding Speaker
If you want an immersive experience that no other technology can deliver, the Polk Legend L800 is for you. This high-performance floorstanding loudspeaker features Polk’s next generation patented Stereo Dimensional Array [SDA] technology along with newly developed, dual 1” Pinnacle Tweeter, Turbine mid-range driver, and dual 10” woofers with enhanced Power Port technology to deliver unmatched clarity, balance, depth and detail.
Polk SDA speakers were the first true stereo speakers because they were able to maintain stereo separation all the way from the source to your ears. By acoustically isolating the two stereo channels, each ear hears only the correct stereo channel. The left ear hears left channel, and the right ear hears right channel recordings literally come alive. Musical images are reproduced with clarity and pinpoint accuracy so you can become immersed in an awe-inspiring three-dimensional sound stage that extends from wall-to-wall, floor to ceiling, and extends both in-front and behind the speakers).
Over 40 years of tweeter innovation, design, and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed for the Legend Series, 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. This ensures a broad “sweet spot” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps to defeat any unwanted resonances.
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 to dramatically increases stiffness and damping without adding mass. The result is a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.
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 with less port noise and more powerful bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers.
