Polk Adds Car Amps, Speakers

1/06/2011 03:04:00 AM Eastern

Las Vegas - Polk is expanding its
entry-level DXi range of speakers to tackle additional installation
applications, and it's replacing its PA amplifier series with smaller, Class D
amplifiers.

 The popular-priced DXi series rolled out in
2010 with 4.5-, 5.25-, 6.5- and 6x9-inch coaxial speakers, and the series will
expand to include a 5.25-inch component-speaker pair, a 5.25-inch coax, a slim
6.25-inch coax, a tweeter with crossover, two 8-inch subwoofers, and a
subwoofer box loaded with two 12-inch drivers.

The four new amps will replace
similarly powered models but will be about half the size, thanks to the
adoption of efficient Class D amplification. The four models, priced from a
suggested $299 to $499, are less than 2 inches tall and less than 6.5 inches
wide. Depth ranges from 8 to 13 inches.

 Amp ratings into 2 ohms are 2x275 watts, 4x200
watts, 1x1000 watts. A five-channel amp is rated at 4x115 watts plus 1x400
watts. All feature active equalization.
