The Polk TSi200s deliver open sound with wide staging and precise imaging. These speakers feature Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance® drivers that undergo laser testing to find and eliminate resonance points, ensuring that everything you listen to sounds clean and accurate. The silk tweeter produces sparkling highs, while dual polycarbonate woofers pump out smooth mids and lows. The braced MDF cabinet fights resonance so the details in your music and movies shine through, even when you crank up the volume.

Just team these speakers with a Polk powered subwoofer for full-range sound. They also work great as surround speakers when used with Polk's TSi floor-standing models. And the TSi200 looks good, too. The woodgrain vinyl finish and elegant piano black top plate complement just about any décor.

    Why choose bookshelf speakers?

    Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

    I only have about 30 hours burned in on these, but so far they are sounding pretty nice for Bookshelf speakers. A bit on the bright side, but I expected that. Adding a sub will make a big difference. For a smaller space, these speakers are great. I am quite happy with them.

    Pros: Good value. Bigger sound then you might expect.

    Cons: Not really a con, but you'll want to have a good sub to go with these.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent overall speaker, well built, good looking (Cherry finish), outstanding reproduction and clarity through out the entire listening range, with the exception of the very bottom end - just remember its a book shelf speaker - but mated with the PSW110 subwoofer to cover the bottom 200 Hz, they performs wonderfully. In comparison they stand pretty tall next to my classic ADS L980's

    Pros: Great speaker, well built (Excellent Terminals), Good looking , and a Fantastic Crutchfield price and delivery - with a free subwoofer to boot (Thanx Dolly)

    Cons: A little lacking in the low Hz- not enough to lose a star

    Great speakers for a small location. I used these in a studio apartment with high ceilings and get great sound. I have them set up to play my vinyl record collection and they bring out the music the way it should be heard. Great sound at a great price. Crutchfield delivered these to my door super fast. I ordered them one morning and was listening to the speakers the next night. Thanks

    Pros: great tone and sound

    Cons: if you like a heavy driving bass you need a good subwoofer

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    If your looking for a great pair of bookshelf speakers look no further. Once you get them thru the "Burn in" period the imaging qualities & the overall sound quality really comes together. If you really have the need for added bass you'll have to add a sub, but with a decent equalizer & amp pushing these speakers you will be amazed what they'll do if you've never heard them before. I've been an "audioholic" for years & have had a lot of different brands of speakers & equipment including Old Polk's that I just can't get rid of & Polk stands true to the statement of designing resonably priced speakers that sound great & this pair of speakers is just another example of how true they are to their word.

    Crutchfield's customer service is very professional.

    Pros: You put on a well recored piece of music & sit back & close your eyes & you will think your listening to a pair of floorstanding speakers.

    Cons: None

    We're loving these

    Written By BillP, Florida on Friday, July 05, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We bought these because they had such great reviews, both from buyers and in magazines. We're very pleased. We use just these in a 2 channel set up (no "surround sound" or sub) with a Yamaha RX-V475 receiver and they sound fantastic. The sound fills our medium-sized den, and they sound pretty good from other rooms too. We went to stores and listened to some B&W bookshelves that cost three times as much. I won't say the Polks sound better (it's difficult to tell because we listened in such different settings) but they're in the same league. We also use these speakers for movies. Again, they're fantastic.

    Customer service at Crutchfield is also excellent. They were very helpful when we were settting everything up.

    Pros: Great sound, low price, a good looking speaker.

    Cons: These speakers are a bit larger than most bookshelves. (Not a problem for us).

    TSi 200 - They sound and look great!

    Written By Manny, Texas on Friday, July 05, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought a pair of TSi-200s to replace my TSi-100s surround speakers in my 5.1 Polk Audio Set-up that includes 2 TSi-500s as my main speakers. Eventually I will hook up the TSi-100s to complete a 7.1 set-up. As surrounds, they gave me a fuller, lower end sound. They can handle explosions, gunfire, spaceship rumble, helicopters, with no difficulty. But what I love the most is the clarity of the upper end of all these Polk speakers. Vocals and voices sound as smooth as silk no matter how loud you crank your system, even at the THX Reference level. As your main front speakers, they give you a super wide sound field, even on older stereo cd recordings. If you do use them as your main speakers, however, I do recommend a sub-woofer to get a complete sound. Oh, and in addition, they look amazing in the cherry wood veneer.

    Pros: Excellent quality. They sound amazing and look like fine furniture. I got them on sale since they are being replaced by another series.

    Cons: None.

    Polk Speakers: TSi200

    Written By Henry G, Little Rock, AR on Friday, July 05, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These speakers are great midrange to high sound. I combined an Infinity 8" subwoofer with them. The subwoofer, if adjusted properly with your receiver, really kicks the bass up. I use the speakers for stereo sound as opposed to surround sound. I love the total package and you buy it from Crutchfields for a total of $550, which is a bargain for a complete stereo speaker setup. More sound than I can use due to apartment neighbors, so I added a wireless Sony headset. Again, great sound.

    Pros: Nice speaker enclosures, which look very good. Two 51/2 inch speakers plus the tweeter, throw out all the sound you'll need for small to large rooms. I like to listen at high volumes and this setup puts it out.

    Cons: None

    I expected these speakers to be good by reviews but then I tried them when I got them and I was shocked between these units and the Polk Cs20 Center Channel I got - Wow!!! The richness and full body of the sound is incredible, you would have thought I had Full Standing Speakers that cost much more if you didn't see them. Nice Weight to the speakers gives them the beautiful full sound. These things are them you won't Regret!

    Polk TS1200 ofers good price/utility ratio

    Written By Ross W., Virginia Beach, VA. on Sunday, June 09, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased the TS1200's for use as "mid range" speakers in a five channel digital organ hookup; their solid construction and low distortion power handling capacity are both very good. The TS1200's feature a characteristic high end emphasis that is just what I wanted to help define the timber of the reed and string stops of the organ. However, other uses, such as in some home "hi-fi" or home theater systems, would require a good set of audio controls in order to integrate their sonic profile into the over-all sound of the existing set up.

    Pros: Price/utility ratio; construction; power handling; low distortion.

    Cons: High end emphasis could cause problems in some applications.

    Polks R Best

    Written By GlennM, Clarksville, TN on Sunday, August 12, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I din't spend hugh money on these speakers, but I got a lot for the money. I drive them with a 30 watts per channel stereo boom box and it came alive. I use them for music and TV/Movies. It's not a perfect home theater but it beats the TV speakers they replaced. Polks give a more natural sound than I've been able to find in many others costing way more money. For sensitive ears like mine there are faint nuances in songs or movie sounds I pick up from these that others fumble. Polk speakers tend to have a deeper, cleaner bass than many others, especially those using larger woofers. There's none better than Polk for the money. Very clean sound. Truly a superior product.

    Pros: They don't cost a bundle or take over a small room. Work really well on speaker stands 16 inches or a bit higher. They're visually attractive and should fit in almost anywhere.

    Cons: The only drawback is that the bass reflex ports face the rear, so some spacing out from the wall is required for best bass sound. That's the only reason I don't give these a perfect 5 star rating.

    These speakers play awesome!! They are being used as a set of back tower speakers and keep up with my Cerwin Vega Front tower speakers with 1 1/2 tweeter 5 1/4 mid and a twelve on each Vega. I have a Definitive Technology pro-sub 1000 for deeper base and a BIC Acoustic PL-28 for center. Regarding the Polks; with the SIlk tweeter My highs are as clean as all the base in the room!! They Handle 150 watts and are 8 ohms. My system is finally complete and I am very satisfied!!

    Pros: Great Product vs. Price. Extremely good quality would recommend to any one. Have received allot of compliment on both sound and craftsmanship. Can also be used for main speakers!!

    Cons: Even though They came with a free 5 yr. labor/parts warranty I really do not expect to be using it!!!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Polk Audio TSi200 Bookcase speakers (I bought 4 for a 7.1 surround sound system) are sweet! Much bigger that I had anticipated but they put out the sound with the help of my new Onkyo TXNR609 receiver. The speakers were easy to set up, option of bare wire or banana plug. Not that it is a problem, the size of the speaker does not lend itself for standard speaker stands, these are meant to be on a heavy duty speaker stand or shelf. I cranked up the sound and for our first party in the "cave" my friends were impressed!!! Great speakers for the price.

    Pros: Great for the price.

    I'm very happy with these speakers because of the versatility. I'm running a 2 channel system through my tuner. I listen to different genres of music on LP, CD, and cable music channels; the radio; movies; and regular TV through these speakers and everything sounds really good. These speakers take a little getting used to--the bass is surprisingly good and I'm amazed at some of the sounds it picks up I never noticed before. I'm not exactly an audiophile, but appreciate good sound. For the price and my application, these are a perfect match.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I waited a couple months after ordering these bookshelfs to make sure this review is
    accurate (because who doesn't love new products they just bought).

    I still give them a 5 out of 5.

    I'm a stereo guy, and I do not have a powered subwoofer in my system. These speakers
    are warm in the mids, plenty hot up in the highs, and can provide bass for most music
    genres. If you want to sound like the guy next to you at a stoplight, with the whole car
    rattling, you need a powered sub. But these can make you grandmothers pacemaker
    skip a beat here and there if you crank them up, and the clarity at a high level is just as
    good or better than at a low level. Additionally, these can really fill up a room with sound,
    the dual 5 1/4" woofers are great.

    In summary, if you listen to music at less than full volume, or you are over the age of 25,
    these speakers are incredible! Feed em a clean source and you will be MORE than
    satisfied, impressed by their quality.

    Polk Audio TSi200

    Written By Fliptechmed, Cidra, PR on Monday, August 09, 2010

    I have to say that there is nothing out there that can out perform this speaker in its price range. If you are a base junky like me than you will need a subwoofer but the speaker can hold its own without one, just do not place it too close to the wall it will take away from the bass that it can produce. I am not an audio file but I know when good sound is being produced and this speaker can produce some nice imaging. Almost bought some B&W speakers for triple the price and I did not hear such a huge advantage over these TSI's.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The TSi200's have been wonderful front speakers for my new surround sound system. The sound is crisp and crystal clear when watching BluRay's and they have handled both high and low volumes without a problem. I have only pushed them to about 50% of the power of my Denon 1910 but they sound like they would go to the top end of the receivers power without a problem. The sound of stereo music from my ipod is very concise and clarity is superb, while my Polk subwoofer picks up the bass making for listening pleasure. The cherry finish with piano black top is beautiful and has a rich look. The only thing missing from these speakers is Bi-amping capability. This is the only reason that I did not give them 5 stars. I highly recommend these speakers for value, aestetics and performance.

    Driver Technology

    Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.

    Klippel Optimized: Using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Polk engineers were able to optimize the speaker structure and cabinet design for the best possible performance, even at extreme listening levels.

    High Efficiency Design: Compatible with practically any AV receiver, these speakers produce sound that is open, spacious and clear, even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers.

    Bi-Laminate Composite Woofers: Each speaker features two 5.25" bi-laminate composite dynamic balance drivers which are light and stiff for deep bass response and low distortion. For high performance durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.

    Silk dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1.0" silk dome dynamic balance tweeter for detailed highs. Each tweeter features Mylar bypass capacitors in the crossovers to extend high frequency response and improve detail and transparency.

    Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 43Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 50-24kHz.

    Enclosure Design

    Quality Built Cabinets: The TSi speaker cabinets are extensively braced MDF with ¾" thick baffles. With pewter accents, a piano black top plate and removable black grille, TSi speakers look awesome and take up less than one square foot. All models are available in a choice of black or cherry wood-grain vinyl finishes.

    Narrow Baffle Geometry: Narrow baffle geometry is a design that creates a sleek looking speaker with great sound. First the high quality cabinet is slender and tucks away easily in your room. The smaller-diameter speaker components are lighter in mass, translating to clearer sound.

    Flared Ports: All TSi speakers feature critically-tuned flared ports. Flared ports minimize port noise ("chuffing") and ensure good low frequency extension with low distortion. With flared ports, TSi speakers reveal realistic, natural, full-bodied sound with rich bass. These TSi bookshelf speakers feature a rear-firing port.


    5-Way Binding Posts: Each speaker has a set of gold-plated 5-way binding posts.

    Mounting Options

    Placement: Create an equilateral triangle between the speaker and the listening position. If you notice video distortion or discoloration, immediately move the speaker away from the video source.

    Rubber Feet: Each speaker comes with four self-adhesive rubber feet so they will sit securely on your speaker stands or shelf.
