Polk Audio Unveils New Line of Premium Vehicle and Marine Speakers and Subwoofers

Storied MM Series Car Audio and Marine Speakers Are Reimagined with Top-of-the-Line Materials and Design, Delivering Premium Audio Quality and Durability for all Vehicle Types

Las Vegas (Jan. 5, 2017)—Polk Audio, a celebrated high-performance audio brand with over 40 years of sound engineering and design expertise, today announced the debut of its next-generation Mobile Monitor One (MM1) premium car and ultra-marine certified speakers at CES 2017. Having led the high-end mobile and marine audio market for close to a decade with the classic MM series, Polk’s new MM1 series component, coaxial and subwoofer speakers breathe new life into the highly acclaimed line. With Ultra-Marine Certification and an IP56 rating, the updated speakers have the toughness to withstand not only marine hazards, but also dirty, muddy and rocky terrain, while serving up unparalleled sonic detail for cars, boats and ATVs. In addition, Polk will also be presenting a range of new DB+ subwoofers, rounding out the DB+ speaker line originally introduced at CES 2016.

“Since the Mobile Monitor (MM) was first developed in 1982, the series has built its legacy in rich acoustic performance and high efficiency. We’ve focused on recreating that story, but built tough to survive abuse in cars, boat or ATV. No matter where these speakers are installed, the MM Series pump out loud, rich sound and can take on just about anything,” said Ryan Minarik, Brand Manager for Personal & Car Audio at Polk. “To ensure the line remains best-in-class for years to come, we’ve taken a fresh look at the MM series and market, reinvigorating it with an advanced Ultra-Marine Certification, advanced acoustic materials and a stunning new look to reproduce total sonic accuracy in any vehicle. We’ve also rounded out our ruggedly sophisticated DB+ series with subwoofers, so fans and installers have everything they need to cover the sonic spectrum.”
