The Polk Audio TL1 Compact High Performance Loudspeaker (White) is a compact speaker that outperforms any other speaker in its class. Add a subwoofer and achieve unbelievable levels of TV-watching excitement in your small theater room, den or bedroom.
The silk dome tweeter delivers a classic, clear, detailed Polk performance, with pinpoint imaging and smooth highs that are never tiring. 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.
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. 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 air flow 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.
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 the 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 Polk's proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows Polk's 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.
