Full-bodied sound for your music and movies

No matter what you love to watch or listen to, Polk Audio's TSx440T high-performance towers deliver sweet sound that will make your home theater rock, and put a smile on your face. These floor-standing speakers feature a 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter for clear, detailed highs and three 6-1/2" Dynamic Balance® woofers for taut, tuneful bass. Pick up a pair for stereo music, or use them as your front left and right speakers in a home theater setup.

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.

Crystal clear sound at a level higher than I'll ever really use again. Wish they didn't have such a large footprint, but they are very nice speakers.

Perfect Replacement Speakers

Written By Mark, Michigan on Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I chose the 440T's to replace an old pair of LS 50's that found their way to speaker heaven after my 21-year old daughter decided to throw a party in my absence, and I could not be happier with their performance as a solid replacement. For space reasons, I combined the 440T's with Polk's PSW111 ultra-compact subwoofer, and together with a recently purchased Cambridge DACMagic 100 and an older NADA1200 AMP, my living room is back to life...better than ever!!! And ED my stay-at-home cat couldn't be happier. Thanks to Crutchfield on the advice they provided, and thanks to Polk for delivering a great, cost-effective product!

Impressive - Great Value

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been looking at floor standing speakers for over a year, mainly sorting through reviews of people like me that love music but may not be up on the latest technology. So while it was somewhat of a 'risk' buying these without hearing them first, I am completely satisfied with the purchase. I love a balanced speaker - low / mid / high must be in sync and these TSX series are perfect in that respect. I do plan to test out a subwoofer with them just for the heck of it but they are not lacking in bass response. Fit / finish are excellent - ordered the black as they will stand the test of time vs. the older school cherry finish. Would definitely buy again.

Pros: Crisp, clean and well balanced for a variety of different types of music, particularly soft rock / jazz. NIce fit / finish - well made Great bang for the buck

Cons: None

Crutchfield has great product and for reasonable prices. I got some speakers as a gift and they are awesome

Very happy With These

Written By GC, Charlottesville, Va on Friday, June 06, 2014

The Polk 440 tower speaker is a really terrific sounding speaker, It delivers a vary natural sound, and has great bass resonance. For the money, you can't go wrong, as these are reasonably priced, especially if you can catch a sell or find them in the outlet, which is what I did.

Pros: Cost to quality ratio

Cons: None as of yet

Polk Audio TSx440T

Written By Steven Y, Wilmington NC on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice speaker. Good natural sound and well balanced. I chose this speaker over the Klipch because of the lack of mid range. Although the horn tweeter on the Klipch was a little crisper (which I prefer) I couldn't get past the lack of mid's, so I went with the Polk. They bridged the gap perfectly between my book shelf and in wall speakers with my sub woofers. They tied everything together perfectly with my surround sound. They also do a great job as a full range speaker when listening to music. I also looked at the RTi series but read a lot of reviews stating that they need a lot of power. I have 125 watts per channel and the TSx440T's sound great. Good overall multi purpose speakers!

Pros: Good speaker at a good price. "Even better if you can find them on sale, open box or scratch-n-dent!"

Cons: Would like a little crisper highs

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As the title reads: As advertised. This is my first set of Polk speakers and I must say that all of the great reviews they have received are correct. I've only had them about a month, but I can certainly tell the difference. Even though I have yet to break them in, I am pleased with them!

Pros: Very pleasing to the eyes, not too big for floor speakers, great sound for movies and music

Cons: None so far

Polk Audio TSx440T

Written By John H, kentucky on Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have had the 440s about three wks. They are so crisp an natural. The highs an lows are not to much of either. The one thing I like so well about Polk speakers is that there sound is so natural just the way the artist wanted it to be heard. Some speakers brighten there sound , which is not bad if that's what you want but for the most natural sound Polk is it and the 440s really deliver. they will only get better as they break in. If your looking for speakers, price quality, sound, look no further the 440s will fill the bill.

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 TSx440T tower 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 Woofers: The TSx4400T tower loudspeaker features three 6.5" bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance midbass/midrange drivers for crisp, detailed midrange and smooth, natural bass extension. These Dynamic Balance bi-laminate composite cone woofers are lightweight and stiff with exceptional damping. They use butyl rubber surrounds, vented polyamide voice coils, massive motor structures, and high-temperature aramid fiber spiders 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 TSx440T tower loudspeaker has an overall frequency response of 33Hz-25kHz, while the -3dB frequency response is 43-24kHz.

Enclosure Design

Curved MDF Cabinet: The TSx440T tower 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 front-to-back and side-to-side internal bracing, and a 3/4"thick baffle ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality.

Note: The TSx440T tower loudspeaker is available in either a black or cherry finish.

Flared Port: The TSx Series loudspeaker features a critically-tuned, front-firing 3" 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.


Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The TSx440T tower loudspeaker 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. 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.

Integrated Feet: The TSx440T tower speaker features four integrated conical non-slip feet to ensure stability for precise positioning.
