Polk has always been known for speakers that produce effortless bass that’s surprising for their size. The MXT20 is no exception. Beefy 6.5” high-efficiency, Dynamically Balanced woofers provide a clean, open mid-range and punchy, responsive bass, with low distortion—making voices and instruments clearly heard and movie soundtracks and music filled with impact.
