Polk Audio TSx110B

Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio TSx110B

Polk Audio's TSx110B bookshelf speakers are small enough to fit comfortably into just about any room — but thanks to Polk's high-tech design approach, they still pack a big punch. Each enclosure houses a 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter for smooth, shimmering highs, plus a 5-1/4" Dynamic Balance® woofer for clear, natural-sounding mids and bass. They're a great pick for stereo listening in a den or bedroom or for use as surround speakers in a home theater system.

Rev up your system with punchy, dynamic Polk sound

Polk Audio's TSx110B bookshelf speakers are small enough to fit comfortably into just about any room — but thanks to Polk's high-tech design approach, they still pack a big punch. Each enclosure houses a 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter for smooth, shimmering highs, plus a 5-1/4" Dynamic Balance® woofer for clear, natural-sounding mids and bass. They're a great pick for stereo listening in a den or bedroom or for use as surround speakers in a home theater system.

Designed and built for exceptional performance

Polk carefully builds the TSx-series speakers using advanced manufacturing techniques and high-quality materials — they put a lot into them so you get a lot out of them. Each one boasts Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance® drivers — a bi-laminate design of fiber-infused polymers sandwiched together to form a strong yet highly efficient lightweight cone for natural, low-distortion sound. Polk puts these advanced drivers through extensive testing to find and eliminate resonance points, ensuring that everything you listen to sounds clean and accurate.

Polk also paid special attention to the TSx crossovers, using a high-performance design with premium parts like Mylar bypass capacitors to deliver smooth and extended high-frequency details. Even the enclosures contribute to great sound. Their attractive cabinets use non-resonant MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and non-parallel curved side panels to create a rigid, acoustically inert structure that effectively reduces audible coloration.

    An Absolute Steal!!

    Written by: Bob N. from Bristol, RI on July 19, 2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I recently purchased these speakers to replace my 15 year old Cambridge SoundWorks (God Bless you Henry Kloss!) Ensemble speakers, which I have been totally happy with for years. I am using a Marantz NR1403 receiver(also purchased at Crutchfield) as the hub of my AV system. About a year ago I bought a pair of Klipsch RB51 II speakers to replace the fronts. Although the sound was"bigger", the voices sounded like they were coming out of a box; with the old Cambridge Soundworks, the voices just seemed to be "right there". I ended up returning the Klipsch speakers. However, after living with these Polks for about 2 weeks now, these are definitely Keepers. The low end of these really enhanced the mid-bass that was previously lacking,even with a Polk PSW 10 sub. Vocals are clear, and the highs are clear without being overly bright or harsh. Bottom line:I Love these speakers! and at the sale price for the pair, I feel like I just robbed a bank and got away with it!!!! BUY THESE SPEAKERS!!!

    Pros: Great sound, excellent wall mounting brackets, fantastic value

    Cons: None

    Great bang for your buck deal

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've been a Polk audio fan for a few years now and this purchase is just another notch in the belt for Polk. Im using these speakers for small turn table system my daughter got for her birthday. Coupled with my old Pioneer recevier, these Polk speakers bring this system to new life. The sound quality is excellent! This is exactly what I was looking for when building this system for her. The highs and mids are great with good lows on the bottom end. My receiver doesn't come equipped for a sub woofer, but I'm sure that these Polk would really shine with a sub catching all of the lows. Very full sound and versitile for speaker placement. Can be mounted on the walls to give depth and fullness to the room. Excellent buy and will coming back to Polk for the next project.

    Pros: Great size for shelf speakers. Full sound. Can be mounted to the walls

    Cons: Excellent mids and highs. Can use a sub for more difinitive lows.

    Speakers sound great for the size and price. They look nice but I'm not so crazy about the shape of the box. I would rather have a squared box instead of the curved sides but I guess they are designed for wall mounting in a corner.

    Pros: Price and sound

    Cons: Shape of box, and rear bracket

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Had to get rid of some older and much larger Polk sloor speakers based on my new setup. These speakers are just what I needed. Not the same bass as the floor standing models, but the subwoofer covers the lows just fine. They look great on the wall, and sound amazing.

    Pros: wall mountable, big sound from a small size

    These would be fine front channel speakers in a small-to-mid sized room. I'm using them as surrounds and they're phenomenal. Probably a little oversized for surrounds, but the sound is excellent.

    Pros: Quality construction, excellent sound

    Cons: A little large for surrounds

    Pros: They were easy to set up through my Denon s910w amp which I purchased through you. Also great delivery service !!!

    These are excellent speakers, a lot of bang for your buck. They produce very good highs and mids. My wife was impressed not only with the improvement in sound quality but also how they fit nicely with her furniture scheme.

    Written by: James from Oakton, VA on March 8, 2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The dynamic of these speakers is fantastic. Great balance between lows/mids/highs and they also don't seem to lose clarity if you crank them up. I've been around home audio my whole life and some brands out do others for certain genres of music, etc., but these cannot be beat for an overall general sound. Whether it's rock, classical, jazz, country, or just watching a movie these speakers sound amazing and are also very affordable. I'm using them in my home studio as a second set of playback monitors as well as just all around stereo speakers. They are getting quite the workout and so far I've found no flaws. Great buy, I highly recommend them!!

    I am trying these with a NAD C326 BEE they sound pretty good they do get a little muddy though at the 11 O'clock position on the volume knob i just got them so i'll give them a week or two see how they sound overall they are pretty decent for a smaller setup but adding a sub may help taking away the muddy part so thats what ill do

    Pros: Polk quality

    Cons: The sound can get a little muddy

    Not bad they work well

    Written by: bill from md on February 3, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    They work great teamed with the larger tsx center channel, and the 10" sub!

    Pros: nice quality, good sound in a surround sound configuration. Super fast delivery! Price ok, another retailer had them cheaper by about $20 but with the Polk audio sub offer you can't beat that deal! You do need a sub to get the best out of them.

    Cons: fairly large for bookshelf speakers

    Driver Technology

    TSx Series Loudspeaker: Introducing the TSx Series of loudspeakers from Polk; stylish and quality-built for high performance. The high efficiency TSx Series loudspeaker features a unique curved enclosure wrapped in a wood-grain vinyl. The loudspeaker employs Dynamic Balance tuned drivers and tweeters for realistic mid-range, deep, well-blended bass, and incredible detail - for a classic Polk sound that is naturally open, spacious, and clear.

    High Efficiency Design: The TSx Series loudspeaker can be driven by practically any electronics, even the most modestly-powered amplifier or receiver. Whether you're connecting them to the newest digital receiver, or to your vintage amp, the TSx Series loudspeaker can produce sound that's spacious and clear, enveloping and realistic.

    Dynamic Balance Drivers: The TSx Series loudspeaker uses Polk's Dynamic Balance Driver Technology for great sound. 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. Using just the right materials enables Polk to tune out performance-robbing resonances before they occur.

    Klipple Optimized Motor: Klipple Optimized Motor employs a laser and sophisticated software for large scale analysis of the TSx Series loudspeaker's drivers in motion. Using this state-of-the-art laser and software process, Polk engineers were able to optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

    Silk/Polymer Dome Tweeter: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker features a 1.0" silk/polymer Dynamic Balance dome tweeter with a powerful neodymium magnet structure that delivers clear and detailed highs for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments, without fatigue.

    Bi-Laminate Composite Woofer: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker features a 5.25" bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance driver which is light and stiff with exceptional damping. This Dynamic Balance bi-laminate composite cone woofer uses a butyl rubber surround, polyamide voice coil, massive motor structure, and high-temperature aramid fiber spider to create a driver of exceptionally high efficiency, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.

    High Performance Crossover: The loudspeaker employs a high performance crossover system for optimum blending and time alignment of the overall speaker. Mylar bypass capacitors are used to reveal extended high frequency details.

    TSx-Series Timbre-Matched: All Polk loudspeakers are timbre-matched within their series, designed with the same components throughout, to achieve seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems.

    Frequency Response: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker has an overall frequency response of 53Hz-25kHz, while the -3dB frequency response is 61-24kHz.

    Enclosure Design

    Curved MDF Cabinet: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker utilizes a unique curved cabinet design which creates a stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert enclosure. The elegantly curved side panels, which create non-parallel surfaces, reduce unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. Non-resonant all-MDF construction, with a 5/8"thick baffle, ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality.

    Note: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker is available in either a black or cherry finish.

    Flared Port: The TSx Series loudspeaker features a critically-tuned, rear-firing flared port. The flared port improves air flow and minimizes port noise ("chuffing"), while ensuring good low frequency extension with low distortion. This flared port design lets the TSx speaker reveal realistic, natural, full-bodied sound with rich bass.

    Anti-Diffraction Grille: The computer modeled anti-diffraction grille minimizes grille interference, so it doesn't get in the way of your sound. This black cloth grille is detachable.

    Connections

    Gold-Plated 5-Way Binding Posts: The TSx110B bookshelf loudspeaker features gold-plated 5-way binding posts for excellent signal transfer. The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The speaker terminals are color coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

    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: The bookshelf loudspeaker comes with self-adhesive rubber feet so it will sit safely and securely on your speaker stand or shelf. The rubber feet add approximately 0.625" to the height of the speaker.

    Wall Mounting: The TSx Series loudspeaker has a keyhole slot bracket on the back panel, allowing the speaker to be mounted on the wall using optional mounting screws (sold separately). A wall-mount template is provided to assist you.
