If you want an immersive experience that no other technology can deliver, the L800 speakers are for you. Built on the legendary SDA technology that became synonymous with Polk innovation, you will be absolutely blown away by this true flagship experience. Note: These speakers are sold individually with specific Left and Right variations. You must add both to your cart to receive a stereo pair.

True Stereo

For the first time in nearly 25 years, Polk is introducing a new SDA speaker – the Polk Legend L800. The Legend L800 floorstanding speaker features new patents that build on the original SDA mission of maintaining full stereo separation all the way from the source to your ears. As a result, L800 renders the most lifelike detailed, stereo imaging you have ever heard from Polk. The speakers seem to disappear as the sonic images fill your listening room with startling realism. It does this by minimizing the inherent distortion found in all stereo speakers known as interaural crosstalk (IAC) by utilizing a second column of transducers called a dimensional array. The Legend L800 speakers are the most revealing and best sounding SDA speakers Polk has ever made.

Polk innovation, legendary SDA technology

The only true stereo speaker

Polk SDA speakers were the first true stereo speakers because they were able to maintain stereo separation all the way from the source to your ears. By acoustically isolating the two stereo channels, each ear hears only the correct stereo channel. The left ear hears left channel, and the right ear hears right channel. Recordings literally come alive in your listening room. Musical images are reproduced with clarity and pinpoint accuracy. You are immersed in an awe-inspiring three-dimensional sound stage that extends from wall-to-wall (width), floor to ceiling (height) and extends both in-front and behind the speakers (depth).

New high resolution

40 plus 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. Hi-Res Audio Certified to ensure the most lifelike reproduction—whether you're watching the latest Ultra-HD moves or listening to music on SACD or streaming services like Apple Music, Amazon Music HD, or Tidal.

New 5.25" turbine cone

Polk developed the new Turbine Cone specifically for the Legend series to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, the frequencies our ears are so sensitive to. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and the molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass, resulting in a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass – hear every detail.

3d audio compatibility optional height module

For the ultimate listening experience, the L800 can be used for the front stage of any home theater or as side and rear surrounds. Elevate your sound of your home theater set up with our optional Legend L900 height module (sold separately). This works with today’s new home theater technologies including: Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS:X, DTS:X Virtual, IMAX Enhanced and Auro-3D.


Better Bass By Design

For Legend Series we enhanced our patented Power Port® technology by fine-tuning the geometry of the port flare to smoothly transition air flow from the speaker into your listening area. The result? Louder, cleaner bass and more defined midrange by minimizing the turbulence, distortion, and port noise typically found in traditional ported speaker designs.

Key Technologies

Hi-Res Audio Certified Polk products deliver an immersive listening experience, capturing the nuances and subtleties of high-quality audio recordings, and providing an enhanced level of audio fidelity.

Polk-patented SDA (Stereo Dimensional Array) technology creates an expansive soundstage and detailed stereo image, while delivering a multi-dimensional sound experience.

SDA-PRO features enhancements to the stereo arrays including a 15-degree angled baffle, enhanced bandwidth and special "Head Shadow" filters to improve interaural crosstalk (IAC) cancellation.

Developed by Polk Audio, the new high definition Pinnacle Ring Radiator™ Tweeter delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs, without unwanted distortions.

The Turbine Cone™ combines a Polk-proprietary foam core and molded turbine geometry to dramatically increase stiffness and damping, resulting in detailed mid-range and effortless bass without adding mass.

Hear and feel the difference; Polk Enhanced Power Port produces less port noise and more bass than traditionally ported loudspeakers.

Cabinets, braces and internal enclosures are carefully engineered to minimize unwanted internal standing waves and eliminate unwanted resonances.

Proudly engineered and designed in Baltimore, Maryland, Polk products are crafted to meet high standards of quality, performance, and reliability, ensuring a premium audio experience that is the pinnacle of American Hi-Fi.


All the details

Polk believes cabinets should be beautiful but add nothing to the playback. Polk Legend 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 transducers while faithfully reproducing recordings.

Comes with a grille to cover the front baffle and a second grille for the top to cover the optional height module when installed. Computer modeled for a precision fit and to minimize sonic interference. The acoustically inert magnetic grilles offer a clean aesthetic without sacrificing sound.

L800's Dual binding posts support both bi-wire and bi-amping for the most direct, efficient, and loss-less connection possible. Plus conveniently-placed connectors for the L900 Height Module provide easy cabling and a clean presentation.
