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 TSx220B 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 TSx220B bookshelf
loudspeaker features a 6.5" 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 TSx220B bookshelf loudspeaker has an
overall frequency response of 42Hz-25kHz, while the -3dB frequency response is
Curved MDF Cabinet: The TSx220B 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 TSx220B bookshelf loudspeaker is available in either a
black or cherry finish.
Flared Port: The TSx Series loudspeaker features a
critically-tuned, front-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
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.
Gold-Plated 5-Way Binding Posts: The TSx220B 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).
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 TSx220B bookshelf speaker does not feature any type of
wall-mount bracket or hardware. The optional PinPoint heavy duty side-grip
wall-mounting bracket (121AM40B,
sold separately) can be used to wall mount the speaker.
