Make Your Entire Home Theatre the Sweet Spot

You’ll experience a seamless, lifelike soundstage no matter where you’re seated thanks to Signature Elite ES50’s Dynamic Balance mica-fortified, polypropylene woofers and 2.5-way cascaded crossover array.

From Vintage Hi-Fi to Dolby Atmos & DTS:X

ES50 Towers deliver spacious, clear, enveloping and realistic sound reproduction from nearly any amplifier or receiver—whether 4- or 8-ohm, vintage audiophile or the latest Dolby Atmos or DTS:X surround sound AVRs.

Custom Mica-Fortified Woofers

Signature Elite loudspeakers use an innovative mica-fortified polypropylene woofer providing clean, clear bass and detailed midrange. Their butyl rubber surround, ceramic motor structure and high-temperature Conex fibre spider culminate in a best-in-class driver offering exceptionally high efficiency, lower distortion, enhanced linearity, and durability.

Dynamic Balance Acoustic Array with Phase-Optimized Precision Crossovers

All Polk Signature Elite models use Dynamically Balanced driver designs which are optimized to reduce distortion at the extremes of excursion, resulting in greater impact and lower distortion when playing today's high-resolution source material. These new driver designs are mated to newly refined precision crossover networks to provide a seamless, lifelike soundstage with maximum dynamics for all modern sources.

Thoughtfully Designed and Built

The ES50 speakers are designed for you to hear pure sound the way the director, producer or artist intended. The ES50'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.

Effortless Bass with less Distortion

Power Port is a Polk-patented design that smoothly transitions the airflow from the speaker’s port into the listening area to eliminate turbulence and distortion for louder, deeper, more musical bass and a more open and transparent midrange. When paired with the ES50’s dual 5.25” woofers, that means effortless bass you can feel.

Rigidity Equals Purer Sound

Signature Elite loudspeakers feature new stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert Medite MDF enclosures that were refined through numerous revisions, subjected to extensive laser vibrometer testing, and then carefully reinforced to ensure optimal bracing and critical damping. Their resulting non-resonant construction has reduced unwanted internal standing waves, minimizing audible colouration versus the previous Signature Elite. Removable, magnetic anti-diffraction grilles round out the offering to ensure listeners only hear the source material, not the speaker cabinet.

Signature Elite Series - Five Decades of American Loudspeaker Engineering by Polk Audio

Signature Elite Series is the culmination of five decades of Polk’s premium loudspeaker engineering and were designed at their original Acoustic Research and Development facility in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Polk's goal since their founding in 1972 has been to build great loudspeakers that transport you to the scene of the recorded performance. Later with the advent of home theatres, to make you feel that you’re in the middle of the action. They’ve achieved this by constant innovation and by leaving nothing to chance. The result of this 50-year engineering heritage is best-in-class loudspeakers backed by numerous awards, patents, and fans like you.

All Polk loudspeakers are built to last. The engineers rely on an exclusive Dynamic Balance Array process to pinpoint and eliminate electro-acoustic and mechanical issues before they become a part of the finished speaker. Polk Audio are so confident of this process, that they back the Signature Elite Series with a 5-year limited warranty to ensure years of listening pleasure.

With Polk Signature Elite loudspeakers, you’ll enjoy movies, music and gaming with high-resolution, room-filling sound with effortless bass. Hi-Res Audio Certified, accessibly priced, and built to exceed our patented quality-testing process, the Signature Elite series fulfils the Polk promise of great sound for all.
