The Polk Audio SC80-IPR is an entry level custom IP ready loud speaker that can be installed in the ceiling or wall. The SC80-IPR is equipped with an array of Polk Audio exclusive technology and utilizes a unique "IP-Ready" mode. When in IP-Ready mode the SC80 speaker unit works in a bi-amplified manner allowing separate signals to be transferred to the tweeter and the woofer; Polk claims this mode allows for a "significant performance improvement". The SC80-IPR speaker is equipped with an 8" mid-range woofer which utilizes dynamic balance polymer for wider response and low distortion; and a silk dome tweeter made with a neodymium magnet which is designed to enhance sound quality and provide direct control of listening positions.
The SC80-IPR series speakers include standard speaker inputs for use with legacy systems and also include an added Euro-style connector for IP use. The IPR body is equipped with moisture proof materials including Butyl Rubber surrounds and rust resistant grilles which are designed to make installation safe in kitchens, bathrooms, saunas, or under-eaves outdoor applications. For consumers wishing to conceal the speaker or keep it out of sight the powder coated aluminum grille can be painted to match any room.
