The Polk Audio TL1 Center Channel Speaker features silk dome tweeter that delivers a classic, clear, detailed Polk performance, with pinpoint imaging and smooth highs that are never tiring. The Blackstone aerated polypropylene cone is lightweight, but stiff and strong, with longer linear excursion capabilities in a limited compact enclosure space, so it plays louder with less distortion.
A super-small long-throw mid-bass driver, tuned with Polk's patented Dynamic Balance technology, delivers astonishingly smooth, flat frequency response, superior transparency and detail and the surprising ability to play really, really loud for such a small speaker.
The Time Lens technology aligns the acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver on the same spatial plane for superior imaging, while 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. The 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. Adding a PowerPort to a compact loudspeaker allows it to achieve deeper bass, for better blending with your subwoofer, than ever before.
The Polk's proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds. The gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts for the most secure connection options.
