TL1600 Features:

  • The silk dome tweeter delivers a classic, clear, detailed Polk performance, with pinpoint imaging and smooth highs that are never tiring.
  • An aperiodic-tuned rear-firing bass port combines the extension of a ported enclosure with the smoother low-end of an acoustic suspension enclosure, controlling port airflow for the kind of big bass response, and perfect speaker-subwoofer blending, you'd never expect from a loudspeaker you can hold in the palm of your hand.
  • A super-small long-throw mid-bass driver, tuned with our patented Dynamic Balance® technology, delivers astonishingly smooth, flat frequency response, superior transparency, and detail, and the surprising ability to play loud for such a small speaker.
  • Time Lens® technology aligns the acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver on the same spatial plane for superior imaging, whilst an acoustic lens incorporated in the grille smoothes the tweeter's frequency response.
  • The unique curved enclosure design employs non-parallel surfaces to strengthen the acoustically inert enclosure and deliver less audible coloration from internal surface resonances.
  • Because of its Extended Linear Motion motor structure, the moving parts of the drivers used in the Blackstone® TL Series can move farther, more smoothly, in a smaller space than any other speaker driver in an enclosure this size, achieving the kind of dynamic response (clarity, volume) you'd expect from much larger speakers.
  • Polk's proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.
  • Hi-Gloss "Blackstone" finish, a durable, deep automotive-strength finish that matches today's most stylish flat-panel TVs and furniture.
  • Compact means go-anywhere for Blackstone TL: on shelves, on the wall, on stands. Built-in keyhole slots and threaded inserts (that fit virtually any brackets) give you multiple mounting options.
  • Gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts, for the most secure connection options.
  • All models in the Blackstone TL Series are available in convenient, professionally matched 5-packs for instant home theatre solutions in any room. There are two complete systems available that include a subwoofer; everything you need for an explosive, compact, easy-to-connect home theatre system. Plus, you can use individuallyavailable satellites to expand your systems to accommodate 6.1, 7.1, and beyond.

Precision drivers
Each satellite speaker features carefully selected ½-inch neodymium magnet tweeters that reproduce crystalline high frequencies with sparkle and precision. 3-inch Polypropylene midrange drivers accurately replicate voices and instruments with full-frequency depth and realism.

Clean connections
their compact design, textured cabinet finish, and elegantly curved grills let the Cinema 5 speakers disappear in the room. Recessed binding posts allow placement nearly flush with wall surfaces for a clean look. Just add a 5.1-channel A/V receiver and get ready for the show!

Powered subwoofer
Immerse yourself in the bass so powerful you won’t believe it comes from an 8-inch, bottom-firing driver in one clean, elegant cabinet. And because bass frequencies are omnidirectional, a single subwoofer gives you all the realistic impact from music and soundtracks.

Sophisticated control
Connect the subwoofer to your A/V receiver, put it anywhere in the room, and plug it in. Then tune the bass crossover frequency control knob to suit your taste. Standby mode means you can leave it powered up all the time for even easier listening.
