Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
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
High Efficiency Design: Compatible with practically any AV receiver, the center-channel speakers produces sound that is open, spacious and clear, even when driven by modestly-powered
amplifiers and receivers.
Bi-Laminate Composite Woofers: The center-channel speaker
features two 6.5" bi-laminate composite (organic fiber) dynamic balance drivers
which is light and stiff for deep bass response and low distortion. The multiple
smaller driver configuration is capable of better detail than one single large
woofer. This design also projects sound over a wider area, so there is a broader
"sweet-spot". For high performance and durability, each woofer uses a butyl
Silk dome Tweeters: The center-channel 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
48Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 58-24kHz.
Quality Built Cabinets: The
TSi speaker cabinet is extensively braced from 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.
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 speaker 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. The TSi center-channel speaker
uses a rear-firing port.
Posts: The center-channel speaker has a pair of gold-plated 5-way binding posts for a superior connection
to your AV receiver.
center-channel speaker should be placed directly above or below your television.
The TSi series center-channel speaker is magnetically shielded for safe
placement near your TV or video monitor.
Rubber Feet: The center-channel speaker comes with four self-adhesive rubber feet so
it will sit securely on your stand or shelf.
