Polk Audio Legend L800 Floorstanding Speaker (Pair)
Country of Origin: Usa
Did you check out the power-packed Polk Audio Legend L800 Floorstanding Speaker on Ooberpad? Presenting a speaker that lives up to its reputation and is truly a legend! The stellar Polk Audio Legend L800 Floorstanding Speaker from Ooberpad. A first of its kind introduced in 25 years, the L800 is inspired by the original SDA mission of delivering life-like detailed and realistic music. This speaker is capable of cutting down inherent distortion that is found in all stereo speakers known as interaural crosstalk (IAC). This is possible as the speaker leverages the second column of transducers referred to as a dimensional array.
Unlike the traditional speakers that limit what you hear because they are unable to maintain complete stereo separation, the L800 are equipped with new dual 1” Pinnacle Tweeters that add clear highs. But that’s not all, two new Turbine Cone mid-range drivers offer a detailed, smooth mid-range in the critical listening area.

Benefits of Polk Audio Legend L800 Floorstanding Speaker (Pair):
The Only True Stereo Speaker L800 Floorstanding Tower Speaker With SDA-PRO
Polk SDA speakers were the first true stereo speakers that were able to maintain stereo separation all the way from the source to the listener’s ears. This is possible as the speaker can acoustically isolate the two stereo channels. So the left ear hears the left channel, and the right ear hears the right channel making recordings bursting with life.
With the L800, you are in for an immersive, awe-inspiring 3D sound stage that extends from wall to wall and floor to ceiling. Finally, the SDA does not utilize any DSP or sound processing, it is 100% compatible with today’s home theatre audio formats including Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Virtualization Technology, DTS:X, DTS:X Virtual and IMAX Enhanced.
New High Resolution Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter
After 4 decades of tweeter based refining and innovation, Polk has introduced the 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter that delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. No need to go hunting for the acoustic sweet spot, the Pinnacle Tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot”.
New 5.25" Turbine Cone
The L800 features a Turbine Cone that has been specifically developed for the Legend series. This turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam cone and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping. This is possible even without adding mass. The result? A smooth, and detailed mid-range with effortless bass.
Better Bass by Design with Enhanced Power port
Unlike traditional bass ports that are prone to noise, the enhanced power port on the L800 allows a smooth transition of airflow from the speaker for cleaner, detailed and deeper bass minus the distortion.
Polk’s refined Power Port technology is specifically designed for the Legend series. The enhanced power port produces less port noise and delivers a more powerful clean bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers. What’s more, the dual high-excursion 10", long throw woofers deliver effortless bass for a realistic experience.
Next Generation Patented SDA-PRO Technology
Featuring next generation patented SDA PRO technology, the L800 is equipped with a 15-degree baffle that angles both the stereo and dimensional arrays. By angling the baffle, Polk Audio has enhanced the quality of the stereo arrays. This allows a narrower speaker (reduced width by 25%) while maintaining the correct width and positioning of the dimensional array.
In a bid to improve interaural crosstalk cancellation, the bandwidth of the dimensional array has been enhanced to match the relevant frequencies of the IAC through the use of paired tweeters in addition to paired mid-woofers. Finally, the L800 employs a special “Head Shadow” filter in the Dimensional array to exactly match the IAC.
Dual-Floor Compatible Feet
The L800 has been customised for improved floor stability and bass coupling. The speaker’s feet are designed for carpet but users are also provided with a rubber boot for hard floors.
