Polk Audio VS-255C-LS and the vanishing Series in-wall center channel speaker, you have the centerpiece of a world-class stealth home theater. All you see is screen, and all you hear is crystal clear dialogue, dynamic detail and directional effects. The Polk Audio VS-255C-LS  center channel speaker anchors the action without attracting attention. It’s the state-of-the-art in today’s most wanted interior design plans.

The Polk Audio VS-255C-LS  in-wall loudspeaker feature a precision-engineered, minimally flanged design and Polk’s exclusive Sheer-Grille, which protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. Installing virtually flush in your wall, the Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall loudspeakers offer a one-cut, drop-in installation and rotating cam stabilizing system. The Vanishing LS series in-wall speakers are timbre-matched to Polk Audio’s flagship LSi and LSiM series loudspeakers for seamless blending from speaker to speaker when you’re building a speaker system.

Dual Midranges

This Polk Audio VS-255C-LS  in-wall center-channel loudspeaker employs two 5-1/4″ Dynamic Balance aerated polypropylene cone midrange drivers with rubber surrounds for a smooth, consistent frequency response. The aerated polypropylene cones are 20% lighter than conventional polypropylene, and 35% lighter than aluminum, to give you clear midrange, punchy bass, and high efficiency. Polk Audio’s patented Dynamic Balance technology eliminates unwanted resonances.

Ring Radiator Tweeter

The Polk Audio VS-255C-LS employs a 1″ Dynamic Balance ring radiator tweeter for detailed highs and ideal imaging. This high-performance tweeter features a 15° swivel housing, for more direct high frequency control, excellent off-axis imaging and more placement flexibility.

Big sound, no footprint

This in-wall center channel speaker is built to perform. Potent 5-1/4″ woofers work with Polk’s PowerPort bass venting technology to deliver punchy lows. A 1″ ring-radiator tweeter extends high-frequency response for incredible details and realistic imaging. You’ll hear every breath of dialogue and every note of music. All of this from a center channel speaker that’s out of sight, in more ways than one.

Sound-shaping controls

A wall distance toggle switch lets you compensate for boominess due to installation near a side wall. You also get a tweeter attenuation switch to help you get balanced sound in rooms with lots of reflective surfaces.

Bring the family

The Polk 255C is timbre-matched to Polk’s free-standing LSi M speakers. It can mingle with matching towers or bookshelves. Or it can join in harmony with other members of the “Vanishing” LS speaker family.

Features

  • Polk Audio VS-255C-LS built-in speakers feature Polk’s exclusive wafer-thin Sheer-Grille, a magnetically-secured grille that protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. Sheer-Grilles have nearly transparent, ultra-small perfs, and are acoustically inert, for dynamic, unimpeded sound.
  • Painted to match your decor, Vanishing Series built-in speakers are virtually indistinguishable from their surroundings.
  • Enhanced, re-engineered ring radiator tweeters extend top-end response for incredible details and realistic imaging.
  • Reflective surfaces in rooms can make sound brighter and cause image distortion. Engaging the Vanishing reflective room compensation feature (by selecting the low setting) lowers the tweeter level to compensate for reflective surfaces. Vanishing reflective room compensation is a custom audio control that cuts the level only in the 4-5kHz range, exactly where reflectivity destroys sound quality. Outside this narrow 1kHz band, the tweeter retains its detailed and accurate high frequency response, for no loss of realistic musical details.
  • Polk Audio VS-255C-LS and the Vanishing Series LS speakers are timbre-matched to Polk LSi speakers to insure utterly seamless blending from speaker to speaker in systems that combine traditional and built-in speakers.
  • If positioning limitations demand that your loudspeakers be installed closer than 2 feet from side walls, the proximity of the surface can result in a response bump between 50 and 200Hz. This can create boomy sound. The Vanishing wall distance toggle switch is a custom audio control that adjusts the crossover to flatten response and tune out boominess, without sacrificing deep bass response, for more lifelike sound and more flexible placement.
  • PowerPort bass venting is Polk’s patented design for smoothly transitioning the air flow from the port into your listening area, eliminating turbulence and distortion, for bigger, more efficient, deep bass impact.
  • Easy one-cut, drop-in installation puts built-in audio within reach, with Perfect Fit templates, a precision flange, and (available) pre-construction brackets; achieve secure, vibration-free efficiency with a simple turn of the patented Rotating Cam system.

Vanishing Series In-Wall Speakers: The Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall loudspeakers feature a precision-engineered, minimally flanged design and Polk’s exclusive Sheer-Grille, which protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. Installing virtually flush in your wall, the Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall loudspeakers offer a one-cut, drop-in installation and rotating cam stabilizing system. The Vanishing LS series in-wall speakers are timbre-matched to Polk Audio’s flagship LSi and LSiM series loudspeakers for seamless blending from speaker to speaker when you’re building a speaker system.

Dual Midranges: This Polk Audio Vanishing Series 255C in-wall center-channel loudspeaker employs two 5-1/4″ Dynamic Balance aerated polypropylene cone midrange drivers with rubber surrounds for a smooth, consistent frequency response. The aerated polypropylene cones are 20% lighter than conventional polypropylene, and 35% lighter than aluminum, to give you clear midrange, punchy bass, and high efficiency. Polk Audio’s patented Dynamic Balance technology eliminates unwanted resonances.

Ring Radiator Tweeter: The 255C employs a 1″ Dynamic Balance ring radiator tweeter for detailed highs and superb imaging. This high-performance tweeter features a 15° swivel housing, for more direct high frequency control, excellent off-axis imaging and more placement flexibility.

Reflective Room Compensation Control: The Reflective Room Compensation Switch, conveniently located on the front panel, allows you to digitally compensate for harsh reflective surfaces, such as smooth walls, glass windows, and hardwood floors. The filter doesn’t merely reduce high frequencies, it simply cuts the level only in the 4-5kHz range where room acoustics most often interfere with performance. The switch is labeled “Tweeter” with two positions: out (normal) and in (filter).

Frequency Response: The overall frequency response of the in-wall center-channel loudspeaker is 30Hz to 33kHz, and the -3dB frequency response is 44 to 29kHz.

Sheer-Grille: The 255C features Polk Audio’s exclusive wafer-thin Sheer-Grille, a magnetically-secured metal grille that protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. The Sheer-Grille can be painted to match your décor, making it virtually indistinguishable from its surroundings. The Sheer-Grille has nearly transparent, ultra-small perforations, and is acoustically inert, for dynamic, unimpeded sound and more uniform coverage, even in larger rooms. The grille’s dimensions are 14-3/4″ x 9-1/4″.

Connections

Gold-Plated Spring-Loaded Posts: The in-wall center-channel loudspeaker has a gold-plated pair of spring-loaded binding posts that can accept up to 12-gauge wire, single- or dual-banana plugs, or pin connectors.

Mounting Options

Applications: You can use the Polk Audio Vanishing Series 255C in-wall center-channel loudspeaker to complete a system of traditional loudspeakers or in-wall speakers, by adding an inconspicuous center-channel speaker.

Note: The speaker isn’t recommended for installation in high-moisture locations.

Placement: The in-wall center-channel speaker is designed to be installed above or below your flat-panel television. It should be installed as close to ear level as possible. If the speaker needs to be installed lower or higher than ear level, you should aim the tweeter accordingly.

Note: Do not block the in-wall center-channel speaker with your TV or furniture, as this will disrupt and muffle the sound.

Rotating Cam System: The Polk Audio in-wall center-channel loudspeaker utilizes a rotating cam system to ensure a secure, vibration-free installation. The 255c-LS has 6 rotating cams to hold the speaker in place. The cams can be tightened from the front panel with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

Installation: The 255C can be installed in new or existing construction:

  • Existing Construction: In existing walls, use the included cardboard template for one-cut, drop-in simplicity. Achieve secure, vibration-free efficiency with a simple turn of Polk’s Rotating Cam system (6 rotating cams).
  • New Construction: The optional PB LCic pre-construction brackets should be used for new-build or open-wall retro-fitting.
