About 255CLS In-wall Speakers

Vanishing LS Series In-Wall Center Channel Speaker

With a Vanishing® Series in-wall centre channel speaker, you have the centrepiece of a world-class stealth home theatre. All you see is screen, and all you hear is crystal clear dialogue, dynamic detail and directional effects. The Vanishing Series centre channel speaker anchors the action without attracting attention. It's the province-of-the-art in today's most wanted interior design plans.


  • Vanishing Series built-in speakers feature our 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 and more uniform coverage, even in larger rooms.
  • Painted to match your décor, Vanishing Series built-in speakers are virtually indistinguishable from their surroundings.
  • Enhanced, reengineered 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.
  • 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.

About 900LS In-ceiling Speakers

A real standout — but practically invisible
Polk's Vanishing® Series 900-LS in-ceiling speaker is designed to stay out of sight and out of mind...until you hear the rich, detailed sound it produces. This high-performance speaker hides away in your ceiling, which means you can enjoy great sound in rooms where regular free-standing speakers are an awkward fit.

Advanced 3-way design
The woofer's increased surface area and rigid cast basket combine for deep musical bass. This speaker also features Polk's own advanced version of the classic "ring radiator" tweeter for smooth, detailed highs, along with a 3-1/4" Dynamic Balance midrange driver, for accurate response across a wide frequency range.

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.

Mix and match with Polk's free-standing LSi M speakers
Use a pair of 900-LS in-ceiling speakers to listen to music in the den, or add more for a great sounding home theater. Vanishing Series LS speakers are voice-matched to Polk's renowned free-standing LSi M speakers, so you can combine these in-ceiling speakers with in-walls or free-standing speakers and get harmonious results.

An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the 900-LS speaker in a home with new construction.
