Is the Polk T90E a 3 way speaker?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is the T90E with its 3 x 5.25 speakers and one x 1 inch tweeter, a true three way. I may be way off base , but I thought a three way speaker had 3 different size drivers. The monitor 60 which is the American version is a two way speaker. What gives? Thinking about buying, so i wanted to clear this up.

Why does it matter if its a two-way, 2.5-way or three-way as long as it sounds good?

Here's the link on Polks website.

exact same specs as Monitor 60

- Edit: If you buying @ newegg then you may want to wait a bit b/c they just went up in price. They were $120/ea.

What the drivers look like is irrelevant. It is the crossover that dictates what the speaker "is". Of course, a 3-way would have to have at least 3 drivers.

The specs say:

Crossover = 2.25kH, second order high and low pass

According to that, it is a 2-way; maybe a 2.5-way.

Thanks sivadselim for clearing that up. The Monitor 60 is listed as 2 way. As far as caring if its a 3-way, I care, that's why I asked the question. Just want to know if the facts are right. In this case, It turns out that they are listed incorrectly. afrogt, Stupid me for asking such an irrelevant question and wasting your time.

I never said you were wasting anybody's time. You sure are sensitive. All I'm saying is the sound matters more than the number of crossovers.

So is this going to stop you from buying the speaker, even though it has great reviews and a good price?

Not usually, just wasn't the type of answer I was looking for. The Polks seem to be an excellent deal (even at $149). Still on the fence about elt525m ($450 pair + shipping), which I'm sure look better, and these Polks. My old Infinity SM85 need to be demoted to the basement.

Aren't the ELT 525 monitor speakers $299 shipped? That's what it says on the website. Unless you don't live in the lower 48 states?
