Signed by Matthew Polk and numbered on a unique, laser-etched backplate. Includes a certificate of authenticity.

A MODERN CLASSIC
SIGNATURE CHERRY WOOD FINISH AND REFINED COMPONENTS
This special-edition speaker embodies all the innovations that make the R200 a Polk classic, with distinctive touches worthy of a rare collectible—from its authentic oiled cherry wood veneer to upgraded crossovers and premium 24K gold-plated five-way binding posts.
PINNACLE RING RADIATOR TWEETER
HIGH-RESOLUTION SOUND WHEREVER YOU SIT
The Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter’s unique waveguide provides broader high-frequency dispersion for a room-spanning sweet spot. With sound reproduction beyond 40kHz and ultra-fast and accurate transients, with the R200AE, you’ll enjoy crisp clarity and detail wherever you’re seated.
TURBINE CONE WOOFER
MULTIDIMENSIONAL MIDRANGE AND BASS
Relentless prototyping and refinement resulted in the striking Turbine Cone Woofer’s unique ridged design. Its ultra-light, yet ultra-rigid cone provides sound reproduction with increased power, accuracy, and speed. You’ll hear breathtaking midrange, detailed bass, and a wide dynamic range in everything you listen to.
HEAR PURE, UNMASKED SOUND
Traditional ported speaker designs increase low- frequency performance, but often mask midrange details due to port resonances. Polk's proprietary X-Port uses specially tuned eigentone filters to cancel out unwanted resonances. With X-Port you get the best of both worlds: tight, distortion-free bass and a superbly detailed midrange.
ANTI-RESONANT CABINETS AND ANTI-DIFFRACTION GRILLES
ACOUSTICALLY OPTIMIZED INSIDE AND OUT
R200AE’s acoustically transparent, magnetic grilles offer a clean look without interfering with sonic performance. Behind the grilles is a world of audio innovation. These rigid, acoustically inert cabinets have been carefully cross-braced and optimized through laser Doppler vibrometry to eliminate unwanted interior resonances.
CELEBRATING SOUND THAT DEFINES OUR LEGACY THE EMBODIMENT OF 50 YEARS OF INNOVATION
