About the Polk Audio TSi CS10

Enjoy crystal-clear dialogue and a robust center image from Polk's CS10 center channel speaker. Polk carefully designed its woofers and tweeter using laser testing to help identify and eliminate resonance points. The acoustically inert MDF (medium density fiberboard) cabinet fights internal vibrations that can compromise performance. It all adds up to smooth, accurate sound with movie soundtracks and multichannel music sources.

Enjoy crystal-clear dialogue and a robust center image from Polk's CS10 center channel speaker.

The acoustically inert MDF (medium density fiberboard) cabinet fights internal vibrations that can compromise performance. It all adds up to smooth, accurate sound with movie soundtracks and multichannel music sources.

The CS10 is designed with an angled top, so you can invert the speaker for placement on a low shelf to direct the sound towards your listening area. And a woodgrain vinyl finish with stylish piano black sides gives this speaker a refined look, making it an attractive addition to just about any room.

Mix and match this center speaker with any of Polk's TSi series floor-standing or bookshelf speakers. Add Polk's satellite speakers and a subwoofer for a complete surround sound system.

Crutchfield customer from Temple, TX on 5/13/2019

The perfect center speaker for hearing dialogue especially if one is older and has slight hearing loss. While a larger center speaker than some others, performance and reasonable price are well worth the larger size.

Exceptional sound and quality of construction

Kevin from Essex Junction, VT on 2/27/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have bought and trusted Polk Audio products for years. Their quality of construction and sound are exceptional especially for the price range. It was a no brainer for me when I chose the Polk TSI CS10 for my center upgrade. I have bookshelf speakers from Polks TSI200 line as well as a set of Monitor 50 Series II and they are all phenomenal so I felt confident that the CS10 would do just as well. So I hooked it up to my entertainment system and it was just as I had expected from Polk Audio, a crisp, clear, rich quality sound that makes a sweet addition to my entertainment setup. With a 5.1 setup, the CS10 levels sound perfectly.

Pros: Solid construction Exceptional rich sound A great company you can trust for your audio needs

Cons: Just slightly too tall/big It only comes in Black(no cherry option)

This is a high quality item. Larger than I expected and perfect for my great room. I thought my ears were going out, as I was having a hard time understanding dialogue from my surround system. Turns out I just didn't have a good center speaker setup. This item is well worth the money.

Nice center channel. It's made very sturdy so that nice. Looks pretty good too. With the way of everything becoming more hidden and sleek this isn't the one to do that with. If you don't have the money or option to do recessed speakers this is a good one.

Problem Solved

Scott from Carson City, NV on 1/11/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I gave these center channel speakers 5 stars probably because I own six of them and a CS20. On the average compared to other high end centers they might be a 3 1/2 star as far as performance goes, for value, looks, and price they're a 5. They did solve a problem I ran into when trying to finish my 7.2.2(Atmos/DTSX), set up, "how do I match my existing Polk Audio TSi's that I bought years ago to new height speakers?" My solution was to ceiling mount two CS10 centers on a track set up, using the angled surface to aim them downwards. I get a dual 5 1/2" driver w/tweeter in each speaker that's made for wider dispersion sound. I've not seen any other height speaker(single), out there intended for ceiling/wall mount that throws sound out like two cs10's with 100 watts each running into them. I didn't have to cut holes in my ceiling and placing up firing speakers on my front TSi 500 towers may or may not of worked due to location restrictions. Mounting them wasn't too difficult as they weigh about 15 pounds. The whole set up looks "different", just takes some getting used to. Another place I used a pair of them was for my older 5.1 1080p "HT". I had a Sony 5700 A/V receiver I wanted to use with a pair of TSi 400 towers and some 100 book shelfs I had, to much power for the 100, so I removed the wall mount bracket and feet from 100's and installed them on the 10's. Set them at the same height as the towers, they work great as surround speakers and at about $80.00 a piece, great deal.

Pros: Inexpensive, look good, last a long time, handle descent amount of power given they're size, sound good, and work well used for other than intended applications. Easily match to other Polk Audio speakers that are economical, easy to find and cheap to buy.

Cons: They look "dated", which isn't a bad thing if you don't want to totally replace your existing speakers to upgrade your sound system.

BRAD from Dayton, OH on 1/4/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The first you'll notice about this speaker is it's weight which quite hefty, however the weight is the result quality craftsmanship in the MDF cabinet and speakers. I upgraded from the T30 to TSi CS10 and All I can say if what a difference, gone are the days of having to turn the volume up loud to hear movie dialog, I'm playing this well below what I would have to on the T30. Current setup Polk Audio TSi300 fronts, TSi CS10 and TSi 100 surrounds with a Denon AVR-X1400H.

Pros: Super Sound

Cons: None

It sounds great, also had already bought it before and happy again, do wish I could have gotten it in the cherry wood like the RTi A1 bookshelf speakers I also bought from Crutchfield, on another note l also bought a 75" RCA 4K TV, they charged for customer service I didn't agree to and the guy at Crutchfield tried to help me with that problem and I didn't even buy it from him, this is a 5 star company in my opinion!!!!!

Big sound

jeremias from Brooklyn, NY on 9/9/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great looks and design. The sound is excellent. Now here is the big but, this thing is huge for a center channel speaker. I purchased this because the speaker I was using was too big. I couldn't believe the size of the box, I figured it was well protected. Although it was this was not the case. I almost returned it, but I realized that for the price I was getting an excellent speaker. I can't really appreciate the sound because all the speakers are too close to one another. I have two TSx 110B and they are too close. They sound so good you don't need a subwoofer.

Pros: crystal clear with great bass response

Cons: Needs a big room to really appreciate the sound produced

First, it is bigger than expected. I bought this to complement a pair of Polk TSi100 for my second tv (kids) on a Yamaha receiver. The voices sound very clear and the timbre between it and the bookshelf is similar if not the same. Sound flowing between them its impossible distinguish when it does the transition.

Pros: Good sound, better then expected.

Cons: None

I purchased this Polk CS10 along with an Onkyo surround sound receiver. I can now hear what's being said! No more having to turn the tv up and down every time there's action vs talking scenes. I love how clear the vocals are. I've decided I'm going to buy Polk surround speakers next to get the full surround effect.

Pros: superb vocal clarity

Cons: none i can think of

Good center channel speaker

GP from Universal City, TX on 5/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great speaker for both movies and music. If you have an HTR with complete control of crossovers and levels you can really dial it in. I expected it to bring the dialog up a level from its older replacement and it did very well. What really surprised me is in the music realm, If I pull out the fronts and sub and isolate it, the nasty 400 to 250hz problematic drum sounds are actually quite pleasing. I was very pleased with the snair impact and super tight low-mid bass drum sound. At reference level, It provides a superb addition to the middle to short bottom. I think polk did a superb job on the crossover filters and hit the spot on the roll off for a really good dynamic range. If the need for high spl arose with the old center I needed to go virtual 2.1 to save the overdriven center but not with this speaker. It hits surprisingly hard for the frequency range required and does a fantastic job on 1khz and 2khz although I did drop 125hz, 500hz, 2khz and 4k about -1.0 dB ea, and added +.5 dB to 8khz, I did it for personal reasons not because it was stressing (I've developed habits after 30 years of audio graphs). I set it up inverted due to my setup which is a feature I like and found no dispersion problems. It's crossed over at 80hz but performs well enough at 60hz to leave it alone and let it rock. It's my first Polk and it is a really good speaker as all the reviews have so eloquently said.

Pros: Underpriced in my opinion.

Cons: Better rubber booties!!!!

Jeremy from Saint Joseph, MO on 4/27/2018

Another, awesome product from Polk Audio and Crutchfield. Extremely fast shipping. Great customer service. With this center channel I have now rounded out my 5.1 AV system. And if or when I decide to add the other 2 channels to my system, I'm more than likely going to buy from Crutchfield. If you're going with Polk Audio, you can not go wrong with this speaker. And if you are on the fence about whether or not to buy this center channel. You can be confident without pondering too much about it, and trust all the 5 stars to just buy it. You will not ever regret it. Hope this helps somebody.. if it does, enjoy your decision. I know I am!

Pros: Just an Amazing Speaker for the price. I doubt I will have to replace this center unless I upgrade..

Cons: None..

Looks great in Cherry. Sounds great and perfect match for my TSI 100's. I wanted to make sure the sounds were the same and not miss match the front 3 speakers. All HT application not much music at home. I would recommend to anyone looking to set up their HT polk system. It is a great segway into the world of polk speakers for HT. I wish i had more info for straight music lovers but this is a center channel so probably not too relevent.

Brian from Roslindale, MA on 4/4/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is an awesome center channel. It matches my other TSi series speakers, and really helps dialogue keep up with the rest of the action. I had previously gotten a smaller center channel to fit in the space I had. It always felt lacking compared to the other speakers in my system. With a little maneuvering I was able to make this TSi CS10 fit in. I'm glad I did! The sound is much fuller and clearer.

Pros: Full, rich sound Great bang for the buck

Cons: It's pretty big but worth it if you can make the room.

Great center for the price but keep in mind it's bass reflex...

Steven M from Joliet, IL on 3/9/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was my second center channel purchase that I needed after my Infinity center's foam surrounds completely wore away after about 5 years. Bought this to work with my Polk Monitor 40's that were also bass reflex speakers that were timber matched to this centers tweeter. For the price this center is really great! It's twin 5 1/4" mid-bass drivers and 1" silk down tweeter are quality drivers and with their rubber surrounds will last almost a lifetime. This is Polks TSi line which is one up from their cheaper monitor line but would work great with Polks Monitor line or other basic and just average sounding speakers. The 4 star rating is based on this center channel and thus it can't be compared to Polks RTi/LSi line or other higher end centers. However, if you need a center channel for a average speaker system you can't beat this rear ported center channel for its price point.

Pros: Well built and nice looking center that can be turned up-side down if needed to get the angle you need in your center. Great low price! The glass black sides are a nice look Good SPL rating of 90 DB If you have Polk TSi speakers this would be timber matched and match the piano black tops.

Cons: The only potential con is not knowing this center uses a rear bass reflex port to boost it's performance. If you do not have it placed within about 8" of a solid wall or wooden backed shelf it will not sound good at all. Bass reflex speakers are great but have the to be placed correctly, which is why more and more reflex speakers are using a front port or Polks rear power port used in their RTi and LSi lines.

EASY to see why this center channel speaker is a top seller! It is easily the most you shall get in a name brand center channel speaker at this price, out performs expectations in my by no means pricey system. For those who appreciate a buy that performs, this is the one. Yes it is a LOT bigger than the neat stuff from Bose, and as another reviewer opined, the Klipsh is better, just not at that price better. Size aside, I am more than happy with how it sounds.

Pros: GREAT performance, reasonable price.

Cons: Should have gotten one years ago

Bang for your buck

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the money, you simply cannot beat this center channel speaker. I was able to compare this to the Klipsch RP-450C in person. Was the Klipsch better? Absolutely. Was it $550.00 better? Not by a long shot. With the CS10 you're getting a great deal. Aside from the price, it really is a good sounding speaker. I spent most of my new home theater budget on L/R and receiver and the center channel really holds it's own. I've only had to give it a marginal db bump to compete with my Klipsch RP-280Fs and it really holds its own at low - moderate - moderate/high volume. At loud, though, like bordering on noise complaint from the neighbors loud, I do notice a difference in quality. For day to day and even intense movie and video game experience IN YOUR LIVING ROOM this is great. If you're looking to pop this into a dedicated home theater room, I suspect you'll need to go for a higher quality speaker. As far as aesthetics go, it's bulky. I didn't pay attention to the dimensions when I bought it (shame on me), and it's quite large; however, I love the slant in the back as it fits perfectly under my TV. To summarize, for the price of a center channel speaker you simply cannot do better.

Pros: Price Low-mid-moderately loud sound Slant/design

Cons: High volume when pair with "better" L/R speakers is noticeable. Bulky

It's early yet but maybe a little nasal sounding in the mids. Still an excellent value. It replaced a center costing 3 times the price.

Pros: Sensative so should match with most gear.

Cons: Grills are a little stiff and don't come off easily.

This thing is Heavy Duty. I think you could throw a very deep bass line to this box and it will take it and chunk along like it will handle it forever. Be sure to read the size chart. It's not a tiny sit under the TV speaker. It's huge compared to what I thought it was. Using it anyway and loving it anyway.

Awesome sound

William from NC on 12/5/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a cheap receiver and a cheap set of surround sound speakers. Can't understand voices on TV shows that I run through the system. Thought I would start off by replacing the center speaker as that is where the voice comes from. This CS10 is amazing. I can now keep the volume low and still understand what they are saying. Better than that is when I play music through the system. I now hear instruments and sounds that I never heard before in music I have been listening to for more than 30 years. Crutchfield staff were very helpful in this process. I am looking into replacing the rest of the system.

Worth the price

Jonathan from Ft Wayne, IN on 11/29/2017

This produces a natural vocal. They have a good dynamic range. I was really impressed with how low they go. And how high they go. The bass isn't boomy but you can tell there is bass there even without a sub.

Pros: Great sound all around. Worth the price if you have the space for this.

Cons: It is a rather large center channel speaker. So, if you don't have the space you might want to look for a smaller footprint. Read the specs before you purchase. I have the room for this but others might not.

BEST VALUE

Matthew from CT on 10/8/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This Speaker is probably the best bang for your buck on the market, maybe even over Pioneer's new lineup. Not having listened to the Pioneer speaker, in terms of just looks, and finish, the Polk is the clear winner. The Highs sound crisp, the mids are punchy and the bass is solid. Pairs perfectly with my Monitor 40's and even sounds great with some Klipsch kg3.5 towers. You can spend twice as much but will it sound twice as good? I doubt your ears can tell.

Pros: Sounds amazing, great price.

Cons: None.

For the price I couldn't be happier. The sound is very clear without being harsh or muddy. It's very natural sounding even at high volumes. I've noticed more sounds in movies that I'm watching again since upgrading my speakers. And it's much easier to tell what people are saying during scenes where there is whispering. I haven't played this speaker at really low volume however.

Pros: Natural sounding. Clear dialog. A lot of bang for your buck.

It's definitely an upgrade from my previous cheap center speaker. Good entry level for home theater. I pair it up with Polk R30 floor speakers as front. Works fine. I tuned 1dB down because it is slightly overpowering the R30 (which is not designed for home theater) even after calibration. Maybe I was used to the cheap center before.

Dynamite Speaker

Robin from San Francisco, CA on 1/22/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought with Yamaha RX-V681 receiver (see review) and hard to evaluate alone. Main objective was to improve TV dialog. It is clear from fooling with receiver settings that those make a diffeence but it is also clear that the speaker in combination with my existing AR speakers provides a tremendous improvement. Still the basic truth is garbage in garbage out but the Polk has found stuff hidden in the garbage. I've heard closing tag lines in many Law & Order shows for the first time. Bones is still mumble city. Advisor's original rec was ELAC UC5 but provided enough info for a comparison and later input was best one my choice. The Polk is 1 or 2 on everybody's top 10 list. The ELAC is on nobody's list but gets dynamite reviews. Probably came out too late. The ELAC tends to be reviewed by audiophiles and techies; the Polk by regular people like me. My guess is that the ELAC may be marginally better but its hard to imagine how. The ELAC also is 70% more expensive. The Polk not only improves the TV sound, it give a big boost to all my audio.

Pros: Isolates and clarifies TV dialog. Gives greater depth to all my audio. Price is right.

Cons: ???

Polk Audio TSi CS10 from Crowley, LA on 1/12/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I recently purchased the Polk Audio TSi CS10 after much research and comparison among other options. I went with the CS10 based on reviews, ratings, and budgetary constraints. Overall, I have been really pleased with the performance of the CS10. I have not been able to extensively test the range of functionality with regard to music, different movies, TV, games, etc. However, I do notice a significant upgrade to the sound, dialogue, clarity, and crispness as compared to what I had before. I do believe that the performance is enhanced depending on the medium that is being utilized. But, the bass and lows are quite good, and I don't think I have really pushed the limit of the speaker. The highs and detail are easily detected and make a tremendous difference in music, movies, and dialogue. I am sure I will continue to enjoy it as I utilize it in differing formats and across movies. And, for the money, I couldn't go wrong.

Pros: Clarity Lows and Bass Easy set up Movies and other formats come alive Depth and extensiveness of sound

Cons: None as of this time

Bought this center channel speaker with the hope that we'd better dialog when we watch TV. Very pleased with the improvement over are old speaker, richer lower frequencies improve understanding.

Replaced a JBL center speaker with this. Crisp, clear voice and dialogue. Paired with Tsi400 towers and a Polk Audio sub; incredible!!

Pros: Completes an all Polk audio system, paired with a new Denon receiver. Crisp dialogue now radiates from the center of an unbelieveable home theater system.

Cons: none

Clear Center Channel

Ed from San Jose, CA on 11/25/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced an old Bose center center speaker with the CS10. Much larger than the Bose and made a shelf/box over the speaker so I could place a 37" TV on top. Sound is very good & smooth although the highs are not as bright as my 2009 vintage TSi100 L & R channel speakers. Ordering via Crutchfield is outstanding. Superb website and excellent follow through and tracking of the order. Mine was an "open box" order and everything was like new.

Pros: Very cost effective Center channel speaker

Cons: Sloped top is good for upward facing floor position, but you cannot place TV directly on top of the speaker.

Having purchased products online that were stated to be "used, like new" and finding them to be new but with damaged packaging, I didn't hesitate purchasing this "open box" item. Much to my dismay, it was a customer return, had the previous shipping label attached and missing the manual, the warranty card and the rubber feet. Having impaired hearing, I can't say how it sounds but my wife says it sounds.

Pros: The box did have a speaker inside, not a box of rocks

Cons: missing the manual, warranty card and rubber feet wonder why the previous owner returned it

Such a dynamic center speaker. Can really push the mid range and hit the highs. Wanted something a bit more powderful than the typical small center channels. Just didn't expect it to be so big, but that's my fault for not even noticing the measurements.

Pros: awesome dynamic sound capability

Cons: it's bigger than what I expected.

Getting older and now I can hear dialog.... YES!

Snowman- Florida from Ft Walton Beach, FL on 7/4/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

As my wife and I have gotten older, we have had trouble understanding the dialog in movies. Several years ago I bought 7 large matching Polk bookshelf speakers. Model RT-55, for those of you who know Polk. Using the RT-55 as the matching center channel was okay, but just did not help us understand the dialog. I looked all over the net, got reviews, which I though were a bit over-the-top, but because of Crutchfield's 90 day return policy, I went ahead and ordered one. Oh, BTW, I even contacted the Polk site and ask about the compatibility of the CS-10 with my older RT-55 speakers. Ken was very positive in his reply. Conclusion: It works! Now I can't decide what to do with my extra RT-55. Thanks Crutchfield for letting me use my reward $$ to get a lower price. End of review......

Pros: Our older ears can now hear the dialog.

Cons: None that I can find.

A lot of speaker for the money. You will notice the weight of it as soon as you pick it up. This heavy duty speaker replaced my old plastic cased center channel speaker, and the sound is much more solid and crisp. It's not a 400 dollar speaker but it certainly is a big bang for the buck.

Pros: It produces a great clear sound and is well worth the money paid.

Cons: I can't think of any, unless your looking for the sound of a 400 dollar speaker, and Crutchfield sells those also.

I added this center channel speaker to an existing mix and match Dolby Digital system. My theater room dictates that my center channel must be on the floor which is not ideal. The Polk has an angled cabinet that can make the speaker fire upwardly. It is perfectly clear and i hear dialogue better than ever.

Pros: clarity, price. accuracy, angled cabinet

Cons: none so far

You can almost live by, you get what you pay for, with Audio. Pay more, you are likely to get better quality. NOT the case here. Polk, no matter what, makes excellent quality no matter what they sell. This sounds as good, if not better, than center speakers costing much much more. I am very happy with this. I wanted to start out cheap, and maybe upgrade down the road, to a more expensive center speakers( thinking back to the old saying price vs. quality)...I won't have to nor want to. This is an amazing quality built speaker. It's made by Polk, so enough said

Pros: Amazing Polk sound at an amazing Crutchfield price and service

Cons: none

The Polk Audio TSi CS10 Kills It !!

VinDSL from American Southwest on 2/28/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let me preface this by saying I listen to music on a pair of Klipschorn speakers and a Harman Kardon amp, so my expectations weren't high for this center-channel speaker. That said, I needed to add Home Theater sound to the 55" LED TV I purchased on 'Cyber Monday' -- nothing fancy -- Pioneer amp, Polk Audio Model 60 Series II floor speakers, and Polk Audio TSi CS10 center-channel speaker. All audio sources sound quite nice on this setup ! Runs circles around the various $500 soundbar setups that I had considered purchasing.

Pros: This speaker is big, heavy, and sounds great ! No buzzing or rattling. Quality construction. Does what it's supposed to do. Adds spacial content (especially nice on voices) without getting in your face, or barking at you. It's a subtle thing, really, but makes watching TV MUCH more enjoyable than without it !

Cons: I've read a lot of comments about the size of the Polk Audio TSi CS10. I guess I'm rather immune to this issue, because my Klipschorns require a hand-truck to move. Plus, my Home Theater setup is sitting inside a 10' Danish Wall Unit, so I have plenty of shelves and cabinets to spare. Still, I would caution people to check the measurements before purchasing this speaker. If you have the room, go for it !

Guy from California on 2/28/2016

Prior to this, my center speaker was one of those tiny, thin underpowered speakers that comes in a package set. Dialogue was constantly drowned out, and sudden loud explosions or dramatic music would incur a "Turn that down!" from the Mrs. What a difference this speaker has made. I can actually clearly hear people talking without having to crank up the volume. If you are suffering from center speaker woes as I was, look no further.

Pros: I can actually hear dialogue!

Great value and great center speaker. It was over 50% off MSRP. Free Shipping and it arrived in 2 days. I have a HTIB 5.1 set from RCA that I am upgrading, added this center and soon getting a pair of Polk TSx330 for R and left and moving current RCA to presence speakers. Added much to my movie watching, much less dialogue drowned out from the R and L music now. Yamaha 7.1 receiver is finally being put to use.

Pros: great sound, great price. not budget but not high end. Just right for me. Baby bear.

Cons: Larger than the HTIB I had, I had to put in a shelf for it (poor me)

Very Impressed

Veryhappy from little elm, TX on 2/15/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

5 years ago I purchased a really nice receiver and a powered subwoofer. I hooked up my old cheap JVC floor speakers to it and patiently waited to buy some new speakers. I finally have come to a point where I could afford to buy some nice speakers and started with this Polk CS10 center speaker because I have always had problems hearing voices and detail noises without one. I am so impressed. I know its because it is a center speaker but I can finally hear voices and detail noises easily and can now mute my TV when listening to movies and other devices. I was immediately impressed. Then after listening for awhile it hit me. WOW. I was no longer turning my volume up a lot to hear my stereo which after checking meant my old floor speakers were not producing hardly any of the awesome sound coming from my stereo. I am listening to almost nothing but this center speaker now. I left the floor speakers hooked up more because I am to lazy to disconnect theme but there really is no need to leave them hooked up at all at this point. I am so impressed with this Polk speaker I will never buy or recommend another brand. Even in the stores I thought they were the best sounding speakers when I went browsing. I still can not believe that this one speaker makes my stereo sound like a stereo all on its own. I can not wait to buy the Polk surrounds and floor speakers next.

Pros: Awesome incredible sound. Very attractive on the shelf. Easy to hook up. Took my stereo from sounding like bottom end to top end all on its own. Blows my cheaper older JVC speakers out of the water.

Cons: Honestly can not think of one

The Polk Audio TSi CS10 center speaker sounds perfect with my 2 front TSi100 speakers. The CS10 is crisp and clear with a really good midrange. I like that it can be put upside down so you can place it on a lower shelf. It can be aimed at your seating area.

Pros: A great sounding center speaker at a really good price.

Cons: If you plan on putting it in front of your HDTV, it will probably block part of your TV.

The tsi cs10 does a great job in enhancing dialog from movies (performs great when streaming music also). I use this speaker together with a couple of tsi200 book shelf speakers and collectively, the sound quality is phenomenal when watching movies or listening to streamed music! It took a bit getting used to the bigger size speakers on my entertainment center (I had been using much smaller sony home theater speakers for the last 15 years), but with the big difference in sound... i quickly got over this personal issues. I would definitely recommend this center speaker to those looking for really great sound on a budget.... in a nut shell, you get "a lot of bang for your buck"!

I recently decided to downgrade a 12 year old 5.1 floor-standing speaker system to a smaller 3.1 bookshelf system that would take up less space in my TV room.

I ordered this speaker from Crutchfield's scratch and dent outlet, and let me say I could not be more impressed! I ordered the item on a Monday morning, selected free shipping, and it arrived the next day. After scouring the outside of the speakers beautiful enclosure, I could not find any blemishes or signs of wear - it looked brand new (must have just been an open box item)! I hooked it up to my Yamaha RX-V377 to pair with Polk TSi100 bookshelf's and a 12 inch BIC America sub, and it blew me away. This speaker sounds fantastic for the price. In fact, I would be willing to pay $100 more for its performance. It brought my music, games, and video to life to complete a simple dorm room setup. If you're hunting for an affordable center, look no further!

Pros: Fast shipping, crisp highs, deep lows, beautiful wood/piano black finish, low profile, big sound, great price.

Cons: None!

I replaced my smaller Polk CL1 w/ the TSi CS10. I was happy w/ the CL1 but wanted the CS10 from the beginning. Most Center speakers are quite large and I couldn't fit it in front of my TV. I recently moved and got my TV away from the fireplace and onto an entertainment center where I had room for a bigger center speaker. The sound is great especially dialogue which is much clearer. Made my whole system sound better. I highly recommend this speaker.

Pros: Sound, Great Dialogue, Looks

Cons: None

Great Polk Sound, Great Crutchfield Value!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased the Polk CS10 Center Channel speaker in order to give my front sound stage a boost and I am completely satisfied. It looks and sounds terrific with the rest of my surround system. I have a Yamaha Receiver, four Polk satellites and two Boston Acoustic Subs. This system sounds great and the new speakers were exactly what I needed to give my front stage a nice upgrade. As always I highly recommend Crutchfield. Best service out there and fast shipping.

Pros: Professional Polk Sound. Sleek and gorgeous look and feel. Clean crisp movie dialog.

Cons: It is big! Not a con for me really but I have a dedicated theater room. If you got the space for a large center channel this is the one!

Used with Polk Tsi 400s and PSW 111. Makes a good set for music and TV. Size was perfect for locating below TV in a step-back hutch.

Pros: Size looks and performance are great.

Good center channel

Scott from Indiana on 12/31/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I looked at a lot of different canter channels and I finally decided on this one mainly because of all the positive reviews. When it comes to dialogue and watching movies this center channel really shines. I have not had to turn up the dialogue at all. I'm using a Denon receiver with this just for comparison. If you are a heavy music listener that is where this speaker could do a little better. The highs are great but there is not much mid response and there is no low response at all. I know its not designed for lows but I thought it would do a little better. For movies I give it two thumbs up. For music in five or seven channel stereo mode I give it one thumbs up. Since it is a center channel speaker and made for movies and not music I'll give it four stars. All in all I think its a great buy for movies and does a great job. If you are looking for something with better range then I would pass.

Pros: Great dialogue, Good highs, Clean and loud, great for movies

Cons: Not great for music, no mid or lows

Pretty good

Brick from Wetstern Wa on 12/13/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bumped along without a center channel for years, and jumped at the chance to get a good center speaker when these came on sale. Having the center channel really cleans up the imaging and "surround-ness" of the sound. Somewhat familiar with Polks, as I have (and really enjoy) a pair of small ones in another room. The CS 10 seems a bit bright and "edgy" compared with the KEF I've got in the L-R positions. Except for that, it blends with them pretty well through the low end and midrange. Some will say the center is supposed to be a bit crisper to make it easier to understand dialogue. I can see where some folks would really like this - for myself, I'm still forming an opinion.

Pros: A "big" speaker that fits in my center console! clean, smooth, not harsh or boomy. Low end extends below 80 Hz - helps keep dialogue out of the sub. Very good for the price.

Cons: could be a bit crisp for some tastes.

Works for me

RonM from Searcy, Arkansas on 12/9/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let me say up front that I do not have a high end sound system. While my receiver is capable of 7.1, I have only been using it as a 2.1 for years. I recently moved to a new location and the room is much bigger with 10ft ceilings. In the new location the system sounded very muddy and it was almost impossible to hear the dialogue. I made several adjustments to the settings with little improvement. I decided to add this speaker as the center channel. Now I have the system as a 3.1 and the sound is dramatically better. The dialogue is clear and I can run the sound at lower volume settings and hear it clearly. The muddiness is gone and the spatial clarity is way better. Nice speaker for less than a hundred bucks. Can't wait to add the Polk Audio Blackstone TL2 to the rear channel.

Pros: Low cost with big results. Easy to set up and adds significantly to the overall sound.

Cons: None

Bryan from Revere, MA on 11/27/2014

Overall this is a very good center speaker. I purchased this speaker with the intent of replacing a 10 y/o Infinity center. The infinity was pretty decent, and the midrange was slightly more natural than that of the Polk. The main problem was the trebble of the Infinity did not seem to have the range to match my Polk 60 front speakers. It was obvious when ever dialogue would pan from the center to a front speaker. Now the sane transition feels much more seamless. The additional benefit has been that I don't have to turn up the receiver quite as high now since the center dialogue is a bit clearer due to the extra trebble. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase. This was my first experience with Crutchfield in over 14 years, and it was fantastic. I'm eager to order from them again when the need arises.

Pros: Trebble, skinnier than other full size centers.

Cons: none

very good speaker for the money. I have it on the wall in the garage above the tv. even in a 30 x 44 building it has good bass and even sound. ordering was easy and shipping was faster than expected. good stuff

Pros: very good quality solidly built. great sound even with minimal wattage receiver. nice looking finish

Cons: this speaker is meant to sit on a tv stand or shelf. there is no mounting hardware. like I said mine is mounted on the wall above the tv, so I had to fabricate a mounting bracket.

Great clarity

sparksongs from Central Florida on 11/2/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Was deciding between this and Boston Acoustics and chose this based on price and the fact we had Polk Audio home theatre speakers in our last house and liked them a lot. Very happy with our purchase. This center channel delivers excellent dialogue clarity - we had no need to adjust the volume louder in order to understand what's being said, which can be an issue with some center channels we've heard. Great deal on the price from Crutchfield as well. Well worth the money.

Pros: Excellent clarity; great price; looks great with our decor.

Cons: None.

Superb sound with an excellent fit and finish at this price point. Voices were clear and distinct with weight and heft Usually reserved for speakers costing far more. I was also surprised at the weight of this speaker, which indicates Quality parts and a non resonant cabinet. All in all I Am very impressed and pleased with the purchase.

Pros: Sound and fit and finish with a pleasing cabinet shape

This is a great compliment to the Polk TSi300 floor standing speakers. Incredible frequency range, didn't realize there was bass in the center channel program of movies. Dialog is crisp and natural. Only thing I wish it had (and this is nitpicking) was a way to mount it to the tv's wall mount. I placed mine on a shelf.

Pros: Frequency Response Crisp, Natural, Accurate sound Compliments TSi series

Cons: None
