ℹ Product Information

Offering a balance of size and power, the R500 loudspeaker is perfect for both listening in a stereo pair or within a surround system. It delivers standout sound from a narrow, elegant cabinet that seamlessly fits into any room.

  • Sleek and elegant design
  • Blends into any décor
  • Better bass by design with new X-Port
  • 3D audio ready for most home theater setups (optional R900)

AMAZING SOUND AND ELEGANCE

With a slim and elegant design, the Reserve line has a minimal elegance that will fit into any décor. Inheriting Polk’s flagship transducer array, the R500 produces exceptional sound that rivals competitor speakers that sell for twice the price. Hi-Res Audio certified, the Reserve R500 is ideal for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.

SIT RIGHT EVERYWHERE - PINNACLE RING RADIATOR TWEETER

The Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter’s distinctive pointed shape guides the dispersion of high frequency sounds around a room. This innovation widens the sweet spot and allows you freedom to enjoy your music and movies wherever you choose to sit.

STRENGTH IN MOTION - TURBINE CONE WOOFER

POLK'S pioneering turbine design delivers a significant increase in cone rigidity without increasing mass. This innovation means the woofer can move with increased accuracy and speed to deliver enhanced sound resolution, enabling you to experience a breathtaking level of detail in your music and movies.

PURITY OF SOUND - X-PORT

Polk's proprietary X-Port eliminates unwanted noise created as air moves in and out of the speaker cabinet port at high-speeds. This ensures a rich and detailed listening experience with tight distortion-free bass and a clean midrange.FORM AND FUNCTION - EXCEPTIONAL CABINETRY

Reserve’s sleek cabinetry hides a world of audio innovation. Cabinets are carefully cross-braced to best eliminate unwanted interior resonances. Rounded exterior corners help disperse sound broadly around the room with minimal diffraction, creating an open sound stage.

MULTIDIMENSIONAL SOUND - OPTIONAL HEIGHT MODULE

For immersive vertical sound, add compatible Reserve R900 height modules (sold separately). These optional height modules perform beautifully with the latest home theater technologies, including: Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS:X, DTS:X Virtual, IMAX Enhanced, and Auro-3D.

CERTIFIABLY EXCELLENT - HI-RES CERTIFIED, DOLBY ATMOS ENABLED & IMAX ENHANCED

The Reserve Series sets the benchmark for music and movie audio excellence

  • HI-RES AUDIO CERTIFIED - Delivers clear and detailed high-end response up to 40Khz for improved high frequency signals for today’s high-quality audio.
