Immerse yourself in your favourite musical recordings or your weekly movie night with the new Polk Reserve.

 

The Most Important Speaker in Your Home Theatre

The center channel is the most important speaker in a home theatre set up and the R400 delivers crisp and easy to understand dialogue for all your favourite movies and shows. With dual 6.5” Turbine cones and 1” Pinnacle tweeter, the R400 offers serious home entertainment impact.

High Definition Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter

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 by Polk Audio, 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 ensuring a broad “sweet spot” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.

6.5” Turbine Cone

Polk developed the Turbine cone specifically for our flagship products to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, to which human ears are particularly sensitive. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass. You will hear every detail and experience a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.

Polk Newly Patented X-Port (ETF)

Polk’s newly patented X-Port incorporates an Eigentone Filter (ETF) offering distortion-free, effortless bass. Consisting of a set of closed-pipe absorbers that are specifically tuned to catch and eliminate traditional speaker distortions. X-Port ensures that the upper bass and mid-range are free of port and cabinet resonances for smooth, detailed audio.

Sleek Modern Design

The Reserve R400 center channel speaker is available in Midnight Black.

Cabinets Built for Better Performance

Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful and add nothing to the playback. Polk Reserve cabinets, braces, and internal enclosures are carefully engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances. The result is a cabinet that rigidly holds the transducer array while it faithfully reproduces recordings.

Awards

EISA HOME THEATRE SPEAKER SYSTEM 2021-2022

"To create its Reserve Series, Polk Audio has leveraged technologies from its high-end Legend loudspeakers – including eye-catching Pinnacle tweeters and Turbine Cone drivers – while also introducing its first on-wall/on-cabinet height modules. A treat for system builders, the range has nine options, including a slim centre channel and three different floorstanders, timbre-matched to accommodate mix-and-match installs. The voicing favours neutral tonality, excellent detail retrieval and a smooth balanced bass response aided by Polk’s Power Port 2.0 venting technology – all attributes likely to set a home theatre fan’s pulse racing. While the Reserve Series’ understated design helps the speakers blend in to any room, its performance guarantees you’ll sit up and listen."

HemmaBio

"I can still claim that the Reserve can measure up acoustically with more expensive systems, perhaps almost twice as expensive systems! Polk Reserve is highly recommended, even for those who may have budgeted for a higher total cost of speaker purchase."
