ℹ Product Information

Polk Audio VS265-RT Rectangular In-Wall Speaker

Discover the seamless blending of sonic excellence and visual discretion with Polk Audio's VS265-RT Rectangular In-Wall Speaker, part of the esteemed Vanishing Series. Uniquely designed to deliver superior imaging and stunningly lifelike detail, these speakers feature a responsive silk dome tweeter set in a pioneering 15° swivel housing; this allows direct control over high frequencies, delivers outstanding off-axis imaging, and supports flexible placement.

One of the hallmark features of the Vanishing Series is the sublime Sheer-Grille™, a magnetically-secured grille that extends a mere 7mm from its backdrop. With its near-transparent, micro-perforations, this innovative grille design ensures dynamic, unfiltered sound and uniformly extensive coverage, even in voluminous rooms.

The VS265-RT doesn't just blend into your space with decor-matching paint, it takes a revolutionary stance against the common issue of sound distortion resulting from reflective surfaces within rooms. The in-built room compensation feature provides a subtle yet effective reduction in tweeter level, preserving the authenticity of the sound and enriching your auditory experience. It specifically addresses the 4-5kHz range - the exact band where reflectivity can wreak havoc on sound quality.

When you want deep, unblemished bass without boominess, the Vanishing wall distance toggle comes to your rescue, adjusting the crossover to flatten response and fine-tune the sound. And when you want to reach the epitome of deep bass impact and efficient air transition, the patented PowerPort bass venting steps in to eliminate turbulence and distortion.

Besides delivering flawless audio, the VS265-RT is all about ease; one-cut, drop-in installation, secure and vibration-free via the patented Rotating Cam system, brings built-in audio bliss at your fingertips. With Polk Audio, you're not just choosing a product - you're choosing a lifelong companion, rigorously tested against the industry's toughest standards to ensure a life of durable, high-quality sound. It's a perfect union of superior tech, advanced materials, and unparalleled design - the VS265-RT Rectangular In-Wall Speaker from Polk Audio. Embrace the sound of excellence that's meant to stand the test of time.

Features:

  1. Timbre-Matched with Polk RTi Speakers: VS265-RT ensures seamless blending from speaker to speaker by having a similar timbre to Polk RTi speakers. This feature helps integrate your existing system and deliver a well-rounded sound experience.

  2. Responsive Silk Dome Tweeter: Reveals superior imaging and lifelike clarity, thanks to its 15° swivel housing. It offers excellent off-axis imaging for more placement flexibility and more direct high-frequency control.

  3. Sheer-Grille™: Nearly transparent and wafer-thin, it extends only 7mm from its surroundings. This acoustic innovation provides dynamic, unimpeded sound and more uniform coverage, even in larger rooms.

  4. Vanishing Reflective Room Compensation feature: This cuts the level in the critical 4-5kHz band, compensating for reflective surfaces and preserving sound quality where reflectivity impacts it most.

  5. Vanishing Wall Distance Toggle Switch: This helps flatten response and tune out boominess caused by close proximity to the wall, without sacrificing deep bass response.

  6. PowerPort Bass Venting: Patented design that transitions airflow from the port to your listening area, reducing turbulence and distortion for more effective, deep bass impact.

  7. One-cut, drop-in installation: Makes the built-in audio setup easy and hassle-free. Secure, vibration-free efficiency is achieved with a simple turn of the patented Rotating Cam system.
