Our take on the Polk Audio TSi300

by Loren Barstow
Polk Audio

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.

Music lovers and movie buffs alike will enjoy the smooth, clean sound of the Polk TSi300. Its silk tweeter delivers sparkling highs, while two polycarbonate woofers churn out accurate mids and lows. The braced MDF cabinet fights resonance so the details in your music and movies shine through. Dual five-way binding posts let you bi-amp or bi-wire the TSi300 for even better performance — a rare feature for a speaker in this price range.

A woodgrain vinyl finish gives the TSi300 a refined looked, capped by an elegant piano black top plate. At the base of the speaker you'll find sturdy stabilizer feet to keep it anchored to your floor, regardless of whether it's carpeted or non-carpeted. And since the speaker's footprint takes up less than one square foot, you can enjoy authoritative tower speaker sound without sacrificing a lot of space.

    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: The 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: The speaker features a 1.0" silk dome dynamic balance tweeter for detailed highs. The 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 35Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 47-24kHz.

    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. 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 floorstanding speakers feature a down-firing power port.

    Connections

    Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The speaker has two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts connected by gold-plated jumpers. Using the dual 5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers.

    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.

    Built-In Conical Feet: The speaker features four built-in conical feet to ensure stability for precise bass response and superior imaging.

    Enjoying the sounds from my Polk Audio TSi300 Speakers. They are super for the price! The bass is sightly stomping and the treble works excellent with the bass, all sounds so clean and pure. Loving them!
    Pros:
    Great sound for the value, nice futuristic appearance,
    Cons:
    Would like to have more of the Polk audio type speakers, the bass could be bit more powerful,

    Excellent Value

    Written By Elblat, Socorro, NM on Friday, May 23, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Even after reading the reviews and doing the research, I wasn't expecting such a lovely-sounding speaker at this price. What other reviewers have said is generally true, they do sound a bit bright at first but that does seem to mellow out just fine. The low bass is weak as one would expect for a small speaker but it is clean and tight and rolls off smoothly with no hint of port noise. I use them with a subwoofer in a small room so the bass response is not an issue for me. What Polk appears to have done here is match a capable tweeter very precisely with a well damped and baffled ported woofer system. The result is clean, detailed highs with nice imaging and sound stage, no noticeable humps, dips, or resonances all the way down to where the bass falls out yielding musical midrange and accurate mid-bass. I am very pleased with these and they actually sound better to me than some much more expensive speakers (purely subjective of course as the setups and rooms were different). They get more than loud enough for me in a small room and don't seem to strain or color when driven. Voices and instruments sound real, which to me is the ultimate criterion. Lastly, our bird seems to enjoy them. The first time I tried them out the bird perked up and started dancing and singing to the music, much more enthusiastically and happily than with the old bookshelf speakers we were using before. The bird still loves them, so they have one bird's approval as well.
    Pros:
    Great sound! Inexpensive! Can get loud but stay clean-sounding Look quite nice Decent sensitivity
    Cons:
    A subwoofer is helpful/needed The dual binding post system is a bit finicky

    I lucked out and picked up these for a song! On super sale last fall 2013. Bi-Amped them with 90 watts to each set of binding posts. Cranked them for about a month and fell in love with the POLK TSi series. Since then I bought the CS20 center channel, and the TSi 400's,TSi 100's and the 440pro wi sub. Im a POLK fan for life. The TSi300's broke open into great sound after that first month. Now seven months into their break in I'm eve more impressed. Crutchfield is my source for expert knowledge and great service.
    Pros:
    Value, Sound, Quality. Looks. ETC...
    Cons:
    None. TSi 300 is a solid buy.

    Not an audiophile, but I know what I like. These speakers are primarily used for a home theater set-up in a medium sized room...probably 18' x 18' but open to a larger great-room. These speakers are combined with a Polk CS10 center channel and RC80i rear speakers...and a 12" sub. I can't compare this set-up with anything else since it is replacing a non-surround set-up. There really is no comparison in that regard. This set-up provides an imersive environmentfor both movies and gaming. I've watched movies at other' house that have the smaller kit speakers and I can say that these provide a much more rich and full range sound. They met my expectations and exceeded my needs for the price. As a minor plus, they look nice as well...the piano finish on the top is a nice addition.
    Pros:
    Full range performance, looks.
    Cons:
    None

    These have become my front speakers for my 3.1 home audio system, and my primary speakers for playing stereo music. There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting on the recliner, closing one's eyes, listening to a great piece of music, and imagining each instrument as the Polks project its clarity. You'd swear you were surrounded by the orchestra!
    Pros:
    Typical Polk quality in design, manufacture, finish and sound!
    Cons:
    None

    Sounds and looks good, but not audiophile quality, which is expected for the price. I previously used Polk bookshelf speakers for the left and right channels and was satisfied. They moved to the front high position, making the overall system sound more realistic with these on either side of the TV.

    You expect big sound from a big speaker and you get it from this speaker and them some. I have been very pleased with these speakers that are the "2" of a complete Polk Audio 3.1 system that includes two of these TSi300's, a TSi CS10 center channel and PSW108 subwoofer. I am powering these speakers with a Sony STRDH720 AV receiver and watching on a Sony KDLEX720 TV.

    THESE SPEAKERS ROCK

    Written By Bmaz, Palatine, IL on Sunday, November 10, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I purchased these TSi's as front speakers for my 7.1 home theater system in my family room. My system is a Sony 46" XBR HD TV powered by a Marantz SR 6005 AV Surround Home Theater Receiver. The front speakers are the Polk TSi 300 floor speakers with a Paradigm Cinema CC Monitor Series center speaker and a Infinity PS 28 powered subwoofer. The back speakers are Definitive Technology Pro Monitor 800 bookshelf speakers and Mirage Nanostat satellite speakers for the surround sides. The size of my family room is approx. 20 x 14 feet. I just watched the Blu-Ray by Marvel "The Avengers" in 7.1 audio and like I said it rocked the house down. The high and low output from the new front TSi 300 speakers is amazing. This is quality at a great price.
    Pros:
    Smooth Sound of Speakers
    Cons:
    None

    The Polk speakers sit on both sides of the couch and are pointed to the recliner across the living room. Even sitting in the middle of the couch, the sound is incredible. I have to look around to verify that no one is playing the music live behind me. The value of this purchase through Crutchfield is excellent, the speakers sound great and there are no shipping/handling charges or tax.
    Pros:
    Mid- and high-range response is great!
    Cons:
    Bass is acceptable for the large volume of living room (16x18x20). I retained the use of my Klipsch subwoofer to help complete the aural experience.

    Doesn't get any better for the money you pay for these!!

    Written By Pedrin, Toa alta, PR on Monday, August 05, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I've compered these speaker with many other well know speaker companies and I have to admit that I was amazed when these ones came up to the stage. I wasn't a big polk audio fan but after listening to the "cheap small" tsi series I was sorpised. The speaker Very well built. Quality materials and a very unique desing that matches any moder decoration (my wife likes them) again these are the bottom and smallest in the tsi series. Bi-amp capable which is very rare in this price piont. Performance Vs, klipsh, energy (floor stander) and infinity and bose, I have to say that polk was the best to my ears. You got it let it break in. These don't have that much bass you really need a sub for home theater application. The mids are clear but the heights are very impressive even at very very hight volume. Over all they are the beets for the money even though there are better speakers then these. If you are looking for great performance without sacrificing you wallet this is the way to go. Crutchfield is amazing the transaction was smooth and incredible fast shipping. I got all the tsi series and the cs10 with a psw111 that I got for free back in December!!
    Pros:
    Advance features in low cost speakers. Performed better then expected!! Very stable and reliable! Great looking too!! Small for a floor stand speaker but big sound.
    Cons:
    Tweeter is not in the top part of the cabinet, I'm tall, when I sit down the tweeter is not to my ear level. Sound great anyway!

    PolkAudio TSi 300 home speaker

    Written By Sonic_Boom, Carson City, NV on Saturday, June 15, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is the second TSi 300 I bought, I recently upgraded my HT system to TSi 500's(4), for the front and surround and a pair of TSi 400's for the rear. Like a lot of people I put the "old" system into the kids room. It has four TSi 400's and two 300's, and a CS10. I like Polk Audio TS series speakers because they look nice, aren't real expensive, sound great for what I payed, and are readily available. I don't need a ton of power to get good sound out of them, they don't eat up a lot of floor space. I'm using an older Yamaha 7.2 A/V amp. in the other room with a PS3 and a Sony 52" XBR5. In an average sized room with this set up, and two Polk PW10 sub woofers, it's great for most movie/game use. Also Polk has been making these for awhile, I bought 4 TSi 100's in '08, so if I need to add or upgrade I can mix and match and they sound good together. My system is now one 400 short so I'll be buying another one of those soon. All in all I'd reccomend these speakers to someone looking for a great sounding, inexpensive, attractive, well built speaker that still sounds fantastic even after years of use. Another nice feature is the floor standing ones are versatile, easily to place, move around, and have pointy feet to keep them located. Anyone looking for a bookshelf type speaker may be interested in these as they are at the right height for listening.
    Pros:
    A lot of people sell them, Big box stores sell them at a discount in an "open box" condition, so pricing is attractive. They match other manufactures finish(s). They have good mid and high range, bass output is descent, however for movie watching(I watch Blu rays), I think a sub woofer is a must with these types of speakers, two subs would be even better I guess. I think I own twenty or so of the various sizes in the TSi series, from the 100 to the 500's, never had any problems with any of them.
    Cons:
    None really, If I had to do it over again, I'd save up or find some TSi 500's on sale or whatever and get those(space permitting). Other than that for under $200(ea.), the TSi 300's are a fine sounding speaker.

    Beautiful sound - Attractive price. The Pold Audio TSi 300 speakers are fantastic. These speakers handle any and all material played through them quite well. Admittedly, I was listening for the low end performance and they sound particularly good on when playing movies and and games. Can you get better sound? I suppose so, but get ready to fork out several thousand more dollars to get marginal improvement. Call Crutchfield and order these now.
    Pros:
    Fantastic sound and excellent price.

    Great Sound

    Written By Moley Russel's wart, SW on Monday, April 29, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    These are great sounding speakers. I replaced some older (1974!) Panasonic Technics speakers and I couldn't be happier. I'm no expert audiophile but I do appreciate crisp clear and clean sound coming from my sound system and I am getting that from these. I bought a pair, one was "Scratch & Dent" and the other was "Open Box" which saved me about $60.00. I can't find a scratch or a dent and the "Open Box" was re-taped so all-in-all that was a good deal.
    Pros:
    Terrifically clear sound in beautiful cabinetry. Awesome service as always from Crutchfield.
    Cons:
    Had I acted a week earlier and bought them when they were on sale I would have saved about $125.00. So...no cons.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    i purchased these speakers on a"whim", didnt need them, i have 3 other pairs of very expensive speakers. i was researching another product for a friend and stumbled across these by accident. for the price i had to have them. these speakers are being powered in a 2 channel system by a 200 wpc adcom power amp and a tube pre-amp, a system in which they have no right to be in and they sound great ! do they compare to 1000.00 pr. bookshelfs ? no, but they are worth every penny i paid and even at the regular price, i would buy them again.
    Pros:
    plenty of detail , very smooth overall , more bass than you might expect
    Cons:
    can sound a little "woody" in the mids on some material

    Very good speaker....for the money.

    Written By Warren S, Seattle on Wednesday, March 27, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I like speakers that look beautiful as well as sounding great.....The veneer cabinets of the TSi300 are stunning (I have the cherrywood finish). Now for the sound...these speakers are quite good for the money. I have not heard a better pair in the $400 price range. Good bass response, although not quite as defined as I prefer but again, for the money this is a killer set of speakers. I use them for the TV, playing DVD's and CD's, and I'm very happy with this purchase.
    Pros:
    Stunning looks, very good sound.
    Cons:
    Bass is slightly muddy, though not bad.

    Great value speaker

    Written By Todd, Central, IL on Tuesday, March 26, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    These speakers have great presence in a room. I give them a five-star rating based on value basis. I purchased these on sale. I don't feel you can get a better speaker for that price. I feel that they are still a good value at list price which is twice that amount. The speakers could have a little more bass but that's what subs are for. There is excellent sound stage, tight bass and clear highs. Overall, I am very satisfied with these speakers and I have recommended them to friends.
    Pros:
    Good looking, great sound and very reasonable price.
    Cons:
    Could use a little more bass

    Polk TSi300s Cherry

    Written By TomF, Buffalo, NY on Sunday, March 10, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    A definite uprgrade from my 15 year-old Polk bookshelves. Good look. Nice sound. Seem to be overpowered by my Polk CS20 center channel - even though they are bi-amped to a Yamaha AX-A720 Aventage receiver.
    Pros:
    Crutchfield service is a nice throwback to when service meant something. If I had thought to ask, they probaably would have suggested bumping up the towers.

    Review for Polk Audio TSi300

    Written By Mitch50, Northern Cal on Friday, March 08, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Hooked these up to a Yamaha surround sound amp and a couple of Polk Audio book shelf speakers with a Sony center channel speaker as well. They sound fine. No complaints. I didn't expect alot of big strong sound, and they don't put out alot of big strong sound. They're nice low end speakers.
    Pros:
    Nice low end speakers for a surround sound system.
    Cons:
    They're not big on bass or powerful strong speakers. But I didn't really expect that with small 6 inch speakers. Good speakers but not going to impress anyone.

    Polk Audio TSi 300

    Written By J.B., Lawton (America), ie...Oklahoma on Sunday, May 13, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    After having spent about 3 months with these speakers I have found them to be suitable to my current needs. They replaced a pair of Cerwin Vega RE-38's that I had for about 10 years that walked off a cliff like a pair of lemmings along with my Sony receiver. Due to budgetary issues I had to start back at the bottom end (in my opinion) in putting together a new system. The TSi's though are in no comparison to the Vega's in the bass department, but they stand on their own in the area of sound clarity. I have always been of the opinion that bigger is always better, but the TSi's have somewhat changed my opinion in that area. They take up much less real estate and I have paired them with the Polk Audio PSW111 sub-woofer which makes up for their lack of outlandish bass that I had been used too (though not fully, but it does hit those lows in just the right spots). I have everything connected to a Denon ARV-1911 which I am growing more attached to everyday. Looking forward to putting my pennies together in order that I may purchase Polk Audio's more advanced RTi A9's down the line and further upgrade the sub and the rest of my components.
    Pros:
    Sound clarity, small overall imprint, quality construction.
    Cons:
    None.

    TSi300

    Written By RickG, Charlotte, NC on Sunday, March 25, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought these as my primary front speakers for a 5.1 system in my main living area. I use them for about 50% music and 50% tv/movies. I wanted to get the 400's, but my available floor space had me limited. I was concerned the 300's might disappoint me. The Crutchfield rep told me I needn't worry, especially if I was going to Bi-amp them. I bought them knowing I could return them and trade up, if needed. He was right. These speakers fill my living area (with a vaulted ceiling) with rich and full sound. I am totally satisfied. Thanks, Crutchfield!
    Pros:
    Bi-Amping these speakers really turns them on.
    Cons:
    Non

    huge improvement

    Written By harry homeowner, Woodbridge, VA on Saturday, February 04, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I used two of the Polk TSi 300's to replace the front speakers in my theater room and they make a incredible difference! I also purchased a sub, but these speakers could allow one to even skip the sub-woofer (although 500watts of sub-woofer is nice). Anyway, I'm no expert, but the clarity and shear crisp "loadness" of these speakers is amazing....needless to say, I like them.
    Pros:
    sound quality and look

    No Subwoofer Required

    Written By MikeM, Charlotte, NC on Monday, May 23, 2011
     
    I bought these speakers because I wanted a small fullrange speaker without having to use a Sub. I live in a townhouse so sometimes when I watch a movie or listen to music I get a text or phone call from the neighbors. Without a sub I can turn the TSi's up and have enough bass to enjoy video or music. No more complaints from neighbors. One more comment....With the two 5.25 drivers these seem to have better midrange than some bookshelf speakers with a 6.5.

    This pair of Polk TSi300 speakers, in combination with the matching CS10 center
    channel, deliver a rich, full sound, even without subwoofer. With subwoofer added,
    the speakers churn out good mids and highs. But I also enjoy this set without the
    subwoofer, allowing the three dual-woofer speakers to weave together the entire
    range of solid lows and crisp highs.

    Wonderful! Best in price range!

    Written By Michael, Los Angeles, Ca on Sunday, November 07, 2010
     
    Did a listening test side by side with many other speakers and absolutely loved these
    speakers hands down. They are so crystal clear...you can hear each individual sound!
    Originally I bought a Yamaha RX-V467 receiver with these speakers and never could get
    it to sound right. I found that it had ridiculously high distortion rates, so I returned it
    receiver and bought a Pioneer VSX-33 which has 110W RMS per channel. I then bi-
    amped these speakers which provides 220W RMS total EACH which made these
    TSI300s absolutely come alive. It's incredible how even a entry-level receiver can kill the
    capabilities of a speaker. ***Try to have a quality amp with clean power...low T.H.D. from
    20hz-20khz! My Pioneer is .08% from 20hz-20khz while driving all channels at 110 watts
    *CONTINUOUS* each. To clarify bi-amping to those who do not know: These speakers
    come with two sets of inputs, if you want to attach only one set of speaker wires, thats
    great, just hook it up to either set of inputs. If you want to bi-amp then you (MUST) remove
    the metal bar that connects the sets of inputs. Then your receiver...which ALSO has to
    support this bi-amp feature...will dedicate another set of inputs to the speaker and you'll
    use two wires per speaker. The thinking behind this is that you separate the tweeters
    from the woofers and dedicate clean power to each. So if possible, I recommend bi-
    amping these speakers. Regardless, they sound amazing for their price range...you
    won't be disappointed!

    Nice Speakers

    Written By BIGGRUSS, Cibolo, TX on Sunday, October 10, 2010
     
    I got these speakers to go with my Sonos B250. I was alittle skeptical about the Sonos 120 not having enough amp power to push these speakers. Boy was I wrong... These speakers rock, the highs are crystal clear, the mids are nice and tight. And no need for a external sub woofer. These speakers can handle the lows just fine!!! I love the sound quality of these speakers. I listen to all genres and these speakers are very nice with my sons hiphop, my wifes latin and my jazz. These speakers are up to the task. I love them, they will get there 1st real test this weekend, when we have a party at my house. If it goes like I am sure they will my friends will be impressed.

    Wicked Loud!!!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    These speakers are wicked Loud. I was looking to update my surround system in my
    living room. I have an Onkyo TX-DS797 which puts out descent power, about 210 watts
    per channel. I cranked these up and it is honestly too loud sometimes that i have to turn
    it down. They sound great listening to music and even better when watching movies. I
    was most impressed with the range of sound that is produced. I heard things I've never
    heard on songs I've listened to 100's of times. Another thing, I expected these speakers
    to produce clear, accurate sound but did not expect them to produce much bass, I was
    wrong. These speakers make my house rattle more than my old 250 watt powered sub,
    while still produce clear accure sounds. I would recommend these speakers to anyone.
    I'd buy them again in a second.

    Excellent Sound

    Written By Dan, Huron, OH on Sunday, March 28, 2010
     
    I bought a Polk sub PSW-111 to make my old surround sound better and it did a great job. Now that blu-rays have been around my old receiver doesn't decode DTS etc. So I upgraded to a Yamaha rx-v465. This made a such an improvement, but I was still lacking the mid-range sound. I was thinking about getting the polk surround rm85's but after listening to them in the store they didn't impress me. So I checked out the TSi-300 and was amazed. Once I got them home and hooked them up and ran the YPAO I was blown away. For music there is no need to have the sub and when it comes to movies, my neighbors now hate me. The entire sound stage is flawless.

    These speakers sound amazing. I am playing them through an old receiver that I do not know where i came from. It sounds very good through this receiver. I am hoping to buy a Yamaha RX-797. These speakers are a very good buy for the price. I might also add I listen to music more than movies or ball games. I do not know how they would sound for those purposes but they serve my purposes great.

    Polk's TSi 300 Floorstanders.

    Written By Rob, Albuquerque, NM on Thursday, September 10, 2009
     
    Ya know, people it seems spend an awful lot of time fretting over who else thinks they've made the right choice in speakers, what brands people favor, etc. For me, it's just about the music, plain and simple. I want to hear detail. The singer breathing in and out, I want to hear the squeal of calloused fingertips on guitar strings, the roughness in a vocalist's throat from singing in smoky rooms until late at night with not enough rest between venues. I want to close my eyes and feel like the band is right infront of me. And if that's what you want, no fancy processing, no crazy 7.1 setup, just plain, pure, straight-shot music, this is what you need. These speakers powered by a Yamaha RX-797, no sub...that's amazing. Every detail is there without a stupid amount of bass to muddle the details and drown out what really makes the songs I listen to immersive. Elegantly simple. Love it.
