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.
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.
Most speakers don't include any. Learn about choosing and installing speaker wire at the Crutchfield Learning Center.

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 levels.
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 5.25" 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 rubber surround.
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 53Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 63-24kHz.
Quality Built Cabinets: The TSi speaker cabinets are extensively braced MDF with ¾" thick baffles and have pewter accents, piano black end caps, and a removable black grille. All models are available in a choice of black or cherry wood-grain vinyl finishes.
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.
5-Way Binding Posts: The center-channel speaker has a pair of gold-plated 5-way binding posts for a superior connection to your AV receiver.
Placement: The 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.

Bought this for the bedroom theater setup, needed a center speaker to got with the right and left speakers. It sounds almost as good as my $400 center in the family room. We own other Polk speakers and they have not let me down yet!
