Effortless Bass

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 ES20's beefy 6.5" woofers, that means effortless bass you can feel.

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

ES20 delivers 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.

Image Feature

Built for Pure Sound

ES20 is designed for you to hear pure sound the way the director, producer or artist intended.

A strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure built with critically damped Medite MDF and laser optimized bracing reduces internal standing waves and resonances for less coloration and distortion of your sound.

The ES20'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.

WHY POLK?


Signature Elite Series is the culmination of five decades of Polk's premium loudspeaker engineering and were designed at our original Acoustic Research and Development facility in Owings Mills, Maryland.
Our goal since our 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 theaters, to make you feel that you're in the center of the action. We'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. We 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. We're so confident of this process, that we 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 fulfills the Polk promise of great sound for all.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
