About the Polk Audio 265-LS
Polk’s high-performance 3-way in-wall speaker
Polk Audio’s 265-LS may be part of their Vanishing series, but one listen and you’ll know this in-wall speaker is no “wall flower.” The 265-LS offers stellar sound in an inconspicuous design that hides in your wall. Whether you’re using this speaker as the basis for a stealth home theater, or a pair for stereo listening, its performance rivals that of Polk’s flagship free-standing models. In fact, you can put together a system mixing this in-wall speaker with more traditional floor-standing or bookshelf models — whatever suits your room and your decorating sense best.
Advanced technology for better sound
The 265-LS begins with dual 6-1/2″ Dynamic Balance drivers, which deliver clear, accurate mids and dynamic lows. Polk’s PowerPort® bass venting system reinforces the bottom end for clean, punchy bass. The 265-LS uses Polk’s own advanced version of the classic “ring radiator” tweeter for smooth, detailed highs. A wall distance toggle switch lets you compensate for boominess due to installation near a side wall. You also get a tweeter attenuation switch to help you get balanced sound in rooms with lots of reflective surfaces. Finish off by painting the magnetic Sheer-Grille™ to match your wall color, and the 265-LS is ready for showtime.
An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the 265-LS in-wall speaker in a home with new construction.
Most speakers don’t include any. Learn more about in-wall wiring at the Crutchfield Learning Center.
