Polk Audio was founded in 1972 by Matthew Polk and George Klopfer. The friends shared the dream of creating speakers that could be the best in the world in terms of quality of sound, but affordable. Using the development of scientific methods, which was a rare thing in the 1970s, and focusing only on the production of speakers, they managed to create unique products, which made the company known all over the globe and got Polk Audio a status of the acoustics expert.

Today the most profitable category of Polk Audio products is CI, in-wall speakers for custom installations, and the best-selling category is soundbars. An interesting fact is that almost all of the top managers have been with the company for many years. The main developer Stu Lunsdem has been with the company for over 35 years.

Polk Audio is a company with a rich history, and roots, that are very important for it, and yet has a state-of-the-art research and development department with an experienced manufacturing facility.
