The speaker system includes a soundbar speaker with built-in wall mounts as well as a wireless 16.5cm driver subwoofer that can be positioned anywhere in a room (within 50 feet of the soundbar) to deliver powerful base.

The SurroundBar3000 also features Polk Digital Logic, Polk’s proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) programming, that “ensures clear, intelligible dialogue coupled with warm and full sounds” as well as Stereo Dimensional Array (SDA) technology “which delivers profound sound reproduction without the need of a rear speaker”.

In terms of connectivity, the SurroundBar3000 requires only an RCA stereo output from the TV, DVD or source, without the need for additional wires.

The SurroundBar3000 is available for RRP $649.


The SoundBar3000 upgrades the audio quality of the average flat panel TV.
