Overview

Our take on 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.

BEST VALUE

Matthew from CT on 10/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (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.

Great start for the speaker upgrades I am doing to my system. After about three weeks of play, the CS10 is starting to loosen up. Will be using Polk TSI200s for front and rear. Can't wait to get them.

Pros: Good Center channel for the price.

Cons: Wish it shipped inside of another box. Package theives love seeing what's on the porch.

Great Sound

Darren from Tampa, FL on 7/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Cons: A little big.

The TSi CS100 is a great center speaker for price. If you have a home theater system and aren't using a center speaker your really missing out. The quality of the speaker is amazing and I am truly impressed with build quality and sound quality these speakers produce. I added the Polk Audio TSi CS10 to my TSi 200 speakers and I couldn't be happier. With my receiver in 3.1 I don't miss any audio out from my receiver and movies are so much better.

So far so good. I have this hooked up as part of my 7.1 to my Onkyo TX-NR717 receiver and it sounds great. I think I still have some tuning to do, so far I've done the auto balance and tune through the receiver. I think I should be able to get a little extra bass out of it. It's larger than I thought it was (yes I know there are dimensions specified).

Griggs from Boise, ID on 5/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this speaker as a 'scratch and dent'. The notes said it might be missing something in the packaging. The only thing missing was the paperwork - which I am sure is available online. I see no scratches or dents, and it works perfectly! I'm quite happy to have an entirely matched Polk surround system.

Pros: Fills in the center channel nicely. Much better clarity than my previous center speaker.

Cons: None.

Nice entry level center

GLin from Spring, TX on 4/28/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: crisp sound

Cons: piano finish on sides

Excellent speaker, very robust, very clear vocals in a wide range of frequencies . Great anchor point for my 7.1 sound system. Would highly recommend this speaker for both functionality and appearance. Not to mention the price from Crutchfield is at or below retail elsewhere . Which left me with no hesitation to purchase from a very reliable retailer. Excellent product knowledge and upstanding consumer regard.

Pros: Great range and clarity. Nice size and appearance. Price can't be beat for what you get.

Cons: None at this time.

Excellent speaker. After doing some research on center speakers, I decided to buy this to match two Polk TSi 400s. I am really happy with the result and am amazed at the difference in dialogue. I did decide to use center spread on my Yamaha RX A760 and it makes the three speakers sound amazing. Crutchfield is amazing with excellent customer service and shipping.

Pros: Excellent clarity with dialogue Sounds great with center spread turned on

Cons: Can't think of any!

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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.

Great sound match

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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.

Good sound and attractice to boot

Gary from Makanda IL on 5/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Hey! There's dialogue in this movie...

TubaMan215 from Laurel, MD on 4/24/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Could pass as an amazing sound bar by itself

jtckf from Sheffield, PA on 3/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Nice for the price

Purchased this speaker to replace a pretty decent Yamaha center channel, but preferred a better match for my new Polk TSx330 towers. The CS10 provided a definite improvement and dialogue is very clear and distinct.

The Polk Audio TSi CS10 Kills It !!

VinDSL from American Southwest on 2/28/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (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 !

Nice center speaker

Guy from California on 2/28/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!

Cons:

Upgraded my old Infinity center speaker for my basement entertainment system. The combination of the tilted cabinet and wide sound field made it a perfect fit in my wide area layout. This is a great compliment to my Boston powered sub towers and Bose surrounds.

Pros: tilted cabinet option, wide sound

Cons: none

Center speaker I have needed for some time. just right for me

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Polk Audio TSi CS10

James from cocoa, FL on 2/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Excellent center channel speaker!

I have been running this speaker now for a couple of weeks, and I have to say it sounds way better than the Bose center channel speaker I used to have. The volume, clarity and overall sound are good.

After reading the great reviews this speaker received I decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed. It is definitely an upgrade over my previous center channel speaker. The voices are crisp and I can hear those "background" sounds again, like when someone is walking on gravel. Completes my brand new 4K setup.

Pros: Great sound, great frequency response.

Cons: None that I have found.

This is a great center channel speaker, especially for the money. It perfectly complements my Polk RTi A7 towers and Polk sub to get me to a 3.1 setup (for now).

Pros: Great sound, great looks, great price, can be oriented either horizontally or angled upwards, matches my other Polk speakers perfectly, appears very solid and well made

Cons: none

Great sound for a great price

Edgar S. from California on 1/10/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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"!

Pros: Good clear voice sound quality.

Cons: none

The cs100 is a very nice center channel. Can't go wrong with it. However, I think that movies, tv, etc all sound better through my main fronts , the tsi 300's. Imo, using front speakers as a wide center sounds better . So much better that i fired the cs100 for not serving a purpose.

Pros: Looks sexy sounds good and clear

Cons: Cons are opinionated. I just felt like i didn't need it. The main speakers do a better job as a center in my set up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 the CS10 to replace a Klipsch Reference RC3-II. I didn't expect the CS10 to sound as good as the Klipsch in terms of clarity and detail. I was completely wrong. Much to my surprise, the CS10 sounds better and has a wider sweet spot. I highly recommend!

Pros: Impressive clarity and detail

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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!

Just what I wanted

Scott from Indiana on 12/31/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Brick from Wetstern Wa on 12/13/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

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.

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.

GerardS from Houston, TX on 7/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After looking around for a couple of days between specifications and price, I decided for this Polk CS10 and I'm really pleased I did. The sound is really good, and it takes full advantage of the center channel of my system. Quality/price ratio is really good, considering that there are $200+ center speakers from other brands. The combination of this center peaker, with a Polk Super Woofer, complemented perfectly the Dolby 7 that I have. Great purchase! On the down side, I have to say that it is a little bulky (20 inches long), so if you are a minimalist, then select a Bose system, but be ready to pay big bucks.

Pros: Sound quality Price Great dynamic range

Cons: Bulky

Pros: Quality product

Cons: foot print and overall size too big

ScottM from Norman, ok on 6/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am using this product as a center back speaker in a 6.1 surround system. It does a wonderful job of bring to life flyovers, storms, sea sounds and every other audio surround element. It is excellent at bridging my left and right surround speakers for complete wrap around sound. This speak brings the lows of my powered subwoofer around quite well also for great low end surround effect.

Pros: This product delivers very crisp and clean sound and easily handles the 120 watts my Sony ES receiver and DSP delivers.

Cons: the low end frequency response could drop a bit although with a powered sub woofer the 80 hertz bottom end does well.

I wanted to a center speaker to my existing 4.1 system and after researching extensively I went went this one and extremely happy with my decision. By adding this speaker to my setup the clarity and dialogue of shows, movies, video games is vastly improved. I'm a sound quality buff and this gets my approval.

Pros: Sounds amazing, looks great and everything I expected.

Cons: May be slightly large if trying to fit into a entertainment center.

Most IMPORTANT Speaker

Scott from Sacramento, CA on 4/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After years of buying small cheap speakers I discovered the importance of a quality center channel speaker. Said to be the most important speaker and I couldn't agree more. For anyone with young kids do you find yourself turning up the volume to hear dialogue and then turning it down during action scenes? I figured this was part of watching a movie when you had kids...then I purchase this speaker and the world of TV\Movie watching has been changed forever. I can now watch a movie without a remote in hand. It is amazing how much better the news sounds and at such low volumes. I have my receiver always turn on at -20 and with my new center channel that even seems too loud so I need to lower the power on volume. While I love this speaker it was not the top speaker on my list. The Infinity PC351 was top on my list and I still to this day wonder if the CS10 sounds this good does that one sound even better? It's just a massive speaker with so many speakers on it but over all I am very happy with the CS10 and for the price it can't be beat.

Pros: Cheap...as in price, Quality Name, Great look, Sounds Awesome!

Cons: Large

FB from New England on 4/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After having operated the CS10 for more than a month I can say without equivocation that this center speaker operates very well indeed. What I was seeking was clarity of voice and that's what i got. This Polk lives up to the reputation of the manufacturer. This modestly priced system performs well above expectations. It's a value, think of that in this modern economic climate.

Pros: The ability to flip the speaker over to elevate the sound field was a great idea.

Cons:

Once again, so impressed with Polk Audio & Crutchfield. Absolutely Love this center channel. Finally able to upgrade from an older Optimus center & now paired with my Polk TSi 100's and Denon receiver this speaker has brought new life to movies & music. Feel like I need to watch all my favorites again just to enjoy this new addition. Thanks again Polk and Crutchfield. Sincerely, Chaz

Eric K from West Chester, OH on 4/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to replace the center speaker from a '5 speakers + sub" in-a-box kit. I wasn't able to hear dialogue clearly in movies or TV shows. I can't speak to "tones" or "pitch" or any other such speaker-talk, I just know that I can hear dialogue that I couldn't hear before. Very happy.

Pros: Got a great price from Crutchfield. Fast shipping.

Cons: None.

Kryten from Manassas, VA on 3/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Upgraded from a cheaper, way smaller center speaker to this Polk and the improvement in the clarity of dialogue is incredible. If the other 4 small speakers were larger, I could really take advantage of the dynamic range and frequency range by telling the amp to use a lower frequency cutoff without destroying the other 4 that I have. Can't beat it for the price, and I looked long and hard. Buy it.

Pros: sound quality, price, looks

Cons: It's large, had to lift the TV to keep it from blocking the remote control sensor. It's heavy, be careful trying to hang it off a shelf, whether on the wall or the TV

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My Polk TL2 Center was getting the job done but found its sound to be thin matched with Tsi100s so CS10 investment was needed . I went on the hunt finding lowest price with free shipping at Crutchfield. I ordered it on a Tuesday afternoon receiving it the following day which I found amazing , Such online delivery is a purchasers dream come true so I'm very happy will be shopping here again. Now to the product, CS10 provides excellent high ,mid , lows with full warm sound totally blowing away my TL2c. Dialog is crisp & clear no more need for dvr rewinds to hear what was missed. It has solid build quality & looks sharp look I'm loving it

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Cons: None so far

Great center channel.

DariusB from Boise, ID on 3/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The center channel is very important...and this is a good one. I've combined this center channel with the RC80i ceiling speakers for the rear and Tsi 300 for the front satelites (and a 12" sub). This is my first 5.1 set-up so I don't have a lot to compare to. What I can say is that the 5.1 exerience is far supperior to a front only set-up (ok - not a news flash). This center speaker provides a great balance to the rest of the system. Make sure you have a receiver than can balance the speaker output to you liking. This center channel seems very versatile and matches the other speakers in my set-up very nicely. It's a bargain too.

Pros: Price, performance, balance, well matched with other Polk Tsi speakers.

Cons: None

I've been putting my system together by piecemeal, something here and something there as my budget would allow. I was shocked, in a pleasant way, when I got this Polk center speaker. Suddenly, I began to hear the slightest sound effects that I never knew were there before. Is as if I have a much more swanky system now. Polk is worth every penny.

Pros:

Cons:

Good speaker for the price, bad quality control

Peter from Shorewood on 1/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

To be honest my experience with this speaker is mixed. After unboxing, I discovered a loose part inside the speakers cabinet, rattling. I thought first thought of as a screw. It turned out that it was a fragment of a plastic tie. I spent quite some time to remove this part, which otherwise would have destroyed the speakers membranes sooner or later. Also the hex nuts for the speaker cable were so tightly screwed that it required a special tool to loosen them and they almost broke. So there is a serious issue with Polk's quality control or maybe got a restocked item from Crutchfield. Otherwise I think it is a good sounding central speaker for the price.

Pros: Good central speaker for the price, and would give at least four stars

Cons: Bad quality control

I just started using my CS10 center speaker for about a week now.(Xmas gift) I asked for .I gave it a 5 star rating because for a 99.00 you get a lot of speaker and good sound for the money. But if your a person that cant get that certain quality sound you demand as I tried to get out of it,- SPEND the Extra DOLLARS and get better. Its my own fault. I will be returning it and purchasing a better speaker from Crutchfield soon.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Tsi CS 10 is performing very well. I originally wanted to purchase the CS 20, based solely on reviews read. But stayed with CS 10. I am very satisfied with it's performance as the center channel speaker, it is rich and full. The audio for voice is crisp. My rooms dimensions dictated my choice. I'm sure the CS20 would have been incredible,but I would not have been able to enjoy it as it was intended. Also my neighbors probably would not have appreciated it.

Pros: The black finish is nice and clean. The dimensions are perfect for placement in a cabinet. The sound is very satisfying.

Cons: Wish my room was much larger. To fill with more sound.

I could not be more impressed by the value of this 'little' center channel speaker. I must admit that I was a sort of disappointed by how large the speaker box is after I set it up, but after a few days, I don't notice it and the sound of my movies is so much better. My girlfriend no longer lunges for the remote during action scenes, and dialogue is incredibly clear. The price is fantastic as well, since a refurbished one direct from Polk goes for the same price as this new.

Pros: Sound quality, value, accuracy

Cons: Size

Billy_Bob from Cincinnati, OH on 11/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a pretty good speaker when accurately paired with the TSI 400 front channels and the Polk Sub. Adding the center helps render dialogue better and you don't need to turn the volume up really high. This is good because when you turn the volume up to hear dialogue, music, explosions, etc... will rock your house.

Pros: -Affordable -Easy to shelf Mount -Helps with dialogue -good looking

Cons: I think it could be a little more potent. While the sound is clear it is not very loud. Now, this could be due to either or both of the following: 1. The speaker is not fully broken in yet, I have it only a few weeks. 2. I am in a 420 square ft room with 13 ft ceilings at its peak. It's possible I should have upgraded to the TSI 500s or the RTI line. If either of these things are true it is not the fault of Polk. It's still a very good speaker.

Polk Audio TSi CS10 Crisp Clean Dialogue and fabulous value for money

AriD from Dallas Texas on 10/22/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was auditioning a pair of Polk TSi 200's bookshelf speakers, and found that beside's incredible value for money, they presented a terrific sound stage with adequate bass. The highs and mid ranges were very well articulated and what really came through for these speakers were the clarity of the instruments. As I needed a center channel speaker for my home theater setup, I purchased the Polk Audio TSi CS10 as match for the TSi 200's. The integrate seamlessly with the Polk Audio TSi CS10, and offer incredible sound for an amazing price. Good home theater experience does not have to be expensive if you match and position your speakers correctly! As usual, Crutchfield's service and competitive pricing, combined with a fantastic return policy, makes me a customer for life

Pros: Incredible clarity, no muddiness when volumes are increased. Can play loud without much distortion. Great cabinet finish, and incredible value for money.

Cons: Rock music may seem a little harsh and blaring at high volumes, (you may like that though)until speakers have been broken in

WOW! The CS10 replaced a Pioneer SP-C21 which, on paper should be comparable or at least in the same ballpark. They both have 2- 5.25"s and a tweeter, but the Polk really brought out the dialogue in movies and is SOOO much crisper than the Pioneer. The CS10 is more efficient at 91db which is very noticeable. What a bargain at this price. I paid more for the Pioneer, and what great service and speed of delivery from you guys at Crutchfield.

Pros: Great center at a very affordable price with great service.

Cons: none

Good Center Channel - Great Price

Diab0lus from Southern California on 8/10/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a nice center channel speaker for a great price. The aesthetics are pleasing, although I would've preferred the wood veneer all around. The shiny plastic on the ends just gives it the impression of something cheaper than what it is. The sounds is great and it really brings out the dialogue. It even offers a little bass when listening to music. Overall I am very pleased with this center channel speaker. It is a little big (depth) so you will need to put it under your tv or mount it over on a shelf.

Pros: Great sound, good bass, and mids. Dialogue does not sound garbled.

Cons: Shiny plastic ends. Take away from the overall aesthetics of the wood veneer.

Before the new center I had a Sherwood center with matching satellite speakers, good sound till I plug in this center. I'll be really honest, I thought that I wasn't going to here much diference but when I listen to my fist movie I was able to here things that I never heard before and it was so clear that I thought that Crutchfield sent me the wrong one. At this price range you just simply won't get any better. A friend of mine bought the same one after my recommendation and replaced the brand new energy center that he used to have he couldn't believe all the sound that he was missing... You will love it... Now I want to try the cs20!! It's big be aware of that!

Pros: Great Sound! Clear heights, voice match tsi series, ridiculous price. Beautiful design.

This center channel is great! I haven't tried many center channels but this performs extraordinary for my needs. I have the cs10 paired with Polk Audio tsi100's as the front left and right speakers. The cs10 blends perfectly to match the tsi100's, creating a seamless soundstage when watching movies. It reminds me of a movie theater system! I am upgrading to the cs10 from a "budget center channel" (I wont get into brands) and the difference is phenomenal to say the least. Not to mention the cs10 is very clear, letting me hear the finest details in people's voice, an even when they breathe! A quality center channel really does complete any home theater and fills any holes in the audio experience. For the price here at Crutchfield, I have absolutely no regrets

Pros: Just an all around great center channel

Cons: None so far!

Very nice center channel! The sound is much more than I expected...broad soundstage, yet clear and precise imaging with surprising bass response. Compliments my Polk tsi100s nicely :). Cant wait until it "breaks" in so I can really hear its potential. Great Crutchfield service as always :)

Grouch from Saginaw, MN on 7/19/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My first experience with a center channel and the second step to building a home theater system. Paired with Polk TSi300's, driven by a Denon AV1513, it improved the overall sound with respect to clarity and fullness. A real compliment to the 300's which, by themselves are lacking slightly. Good price, good Polk quality, excellent customer service from Crutchfield, as always. Highly recommend.

I have had a 7.1 Onkyo surround system for several years, but hated the muddled dialog from the Onkyo speakers when watching a movie. Adding the Polk CS10 was such a dramatic improvement with both movies and CD's that I ordered matching fronts.

Charger6669 from Doolittle, Missouri on 5/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I added this center speaker by Polk Audio, TSi-10 to complete my 7.1 surround sound system which includes two TSi-300 floor standing speakers, two TS-15 front speakers, two Bose 301 rear speakers and a Sony 12" sub speaker, all hooked up to a Sony STR-DH520 Muti-channel Receiver. This addition made all the difference in sound and clarity. It works great with what I have and seems the sound is indenical with the Polk Audio TSi=300's. Simply great.

Pros: Completes the surround experience.

Cons: It is big and needs to be mounted on a short stand.

Center Channel Heaven

KMofNC from Durham, NC on 4/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is by far the best center channel speaker I have ever heard. Sure, I could go on and on about the clarity - the distinct highs and mids - the sleek cabinet etc. It is a better use of time to encourage you to buy this speaker. It is a large center channel so if you don't have the space in your set up...steer clear until you do. Like others on here, I have mine paired with the TSi 300s and they sound amazing in tandem with one another.

Pros: This speaker locks dialogue onto the screen better than any center channel I have ever heard.

Cons: It's big. Make sure you have the room in your set up.

Very nice!

Lee from CT on 4/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Polk Audio TSi10 did its job well! I have a 7.1 Yamaha surround sound composed of Bose 301, 201, 101, and a Yamaha base module . Polk Audio adds a bit more of volume and crisp sound to the dialog .

Pros: Heavy duty unit, great price, looks nice, great connectors

Cons: None

Superb sound! Finally can listen at low volume and still hear voices when they whisper. Great presence. Using with Boston satellite system front speakers, homemade rear and Infinity PS38 sub. So glad I spent a little more for a center speaker....Polk really came through with this one!

duro from Middle Village, NY on 3/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With my old center channel, I had trouble hearing some of the dialog in movies so I had to increase the volume significantly. When I purchased the CS10 and hooked it up, I was amazed at the difference. I can hear everything clearly now without turning the volume up. I have it matched with the TSI300 towers and I love the quality of sound they output together.

Pros: Clear and crisp sound Inexpensive

Cons: It's large in size but this isn't really a con if you have space for it

Steven Level from Joliet I.L on 1/27/2013

Polk has been a name with speakers that combine good looks, good value, and an overall nice build with great cross over electronics. I own a all Polk speaker system and they are all voice matched with each other. This is a very nice touch and you can hear the difference, that they use good parts in the cross-overs and in the drivers themselves! All my Polk speakers use 5 1/4 woofers with a very nice rubber surround, with great 1 inch silk dome tweeters. There are many very expensive speakers out there that still use that cheap foam surround that will always wear out over time. The only drivers that still need to use foam surround are the subwoofers! This center channel is a better sounding than all the centers I listened to except the Definative center. However the Definative's price at well over 3 times the cost and could not justify it's cost in my mind. I love Polk speakers and the fact that they pass down there high end tech. into there cheaper speakers. FYI: My last center was a expensive Infinity that had that foam surround. Well that's what did it in over time as the foam surround wore out and was causing the center to distort. I'm glade it happened or I never would have bought this great sounding Polk CS-10 center with beautiful black piano finish on both sides and real black oak vaneer. This unit also allows you to turn it upside down to mount it on a shelf at a 45 degree angle to allow you to get perfect sound,without mounting it in a strange spot above your T.V....

Pros: By far the best center channel I have ever heard! I tried 4 different centers before deciding to go with this unit!

Cons: None, this is the perfect speaker!

Bud B from Plantation, Fl on 12/16/2012

I have this Center Channel Speaker and I have been very happy with it! The sound is very Precise, Clear, Articulate and just awesome! Great for ALL sounds not just speaking! Especially for a hundred dollar speaker! The price put me off at first thinking with the astronomical costs of Center Channel Speakers in the hundreds even thousands, how could a sub two hundred dollar speaker be any good? But I have been very happy with Polk speakers, I own four Polk T15 speakers that I now use as my Surround speakers in both my Living room and in my bedroom. So, based on that I purchased the Polk TSi CS10, and gave it a listen, I was and am extremely happy with it! I then found this speaker being sold and reviewed at Crutchfield. Unfortunately I saw this too late and spent much more for it elsewhere! Still I wanted to add my comments. My setup is a Pioneer Elite VSX 60 AV Receiver, (B&W) Bowers & Wilkins 685 front left & right speakers, Polk T15 surrounds and this TSi CS10 Center Channel Speaker! A definite 5 out of 5! You won't be disappointed!

Pros: The sound is very Precise, Clear, Articulate and just awesome! Not just for speaking, you can throw anything at it!

Cons: None.

The Polk Audio TSi CS10 is wonderful value for your money. Sound is fantastic, fit and finish is phenomenal. You do need to read the spec sheet, because this center channel is quite large. Pretty tall and deep.

This is a great addition to my system. My wall, ceiling, and sub-base speakers are Polk as well creating a balanced sound all driven from a Pioneer VSX-1021-k. Finding the center speaker on sale at Crutchfield was a bonus.

Pros: Clear sound, easy install, professional appearance. Great bargain. My wife even likes it.

Cons: Size is large, I needed to make minor adjustments to my cabinet. Overall installation was less than an hour.

Better than I expected

Jason from Colorado on 8/8/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It sounds better than I expected. Sounds better than my TSi100's for the front speakers. I like it a lot, particularly since there are more expensive options out there that while I'm sure they sound better, this speaker has higher sound quality than I originally thought I'd get from the budget I was working with. Very happy.

Pros: Looks good, fits on the Center Stage speaker shelf well, looks good above the tv. Sounds great.

Cons: No cons really, except that the angles are odd.

Amazing Sound!

The sound quality is great on this center channel. I am amazed by how the sound fills the room compared to what I am used to, and the price....wow, what a bargain. The highs and lows are very crisp, and stay that way when pumping up the volume. Can't go wrong on this one!

Pros: Sound quality and price are fantastic.

Cons: You will need some room to place this speaker, very large and heavy.

louiep from Round Lake, IL on 6/17/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just completed my 7.1 system on our family room and watching a 7.1 blu-ray disc, the system was awesome but lacking something. I know I won't be satisfied so I went to crutchfield.com to look around. Thanks to the website's product knowledge topics and support I found Polk audio Tsi CS10 center channel speaker. It's a perfect companion to my Polk audio TSi 300 front speakers. Now I have a smaller version of a movie house in my family room. Dialogues came alive and even watching news became enjoyable to me. I can watch movies and news in low volume and still hear the voices clearly. And a little bonus, the mids and highs got a pretty good boost when listening to music. For the price, and Crutchfield's fast and free shipping I think this one is a sure winner. Thanks again Crutchfield !

Pros: crystal clear sound reproduction both in low and high volumes build quality ( looks high-end even for the lower price )

Cons: Size but not really. Take note of the specs and your available space before you buy.

bmax727 from McKinney, TX on 5/12/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great center channel speaker! I am extremely pleased with the sound quality and the amount of sound this speaker puts out. The speaker is being used in a 20' x 20' theater room and it fills the space with sound! I was a little skeptical at first with the price point being what it is, but rest assured it is worth a lot more than the current price! The one piece of advice I can offer up to anyone considering this speaker is to be aware of the size of the speaker before purchasing. Take the measurements off the site and make sure it will fit where you are putting it as it is every bit as big as the measurements tell you it is. Overall, this is a fantastic speaker that I highly recommend.

Pros: Sound Quality, Build Quality, Price Point, Look of Speaker

Cons: None for my application.

I purchased a cheap home theater in a box a while back and I could tell the speakers weren't that great. The center channel was very small and the sound quality while playing music was pretty bad. I finally got around to replacing them and this was the first speaker I upgraded. After hooking it up I could immediately tell that this upgrade made a huge difference. I now love playing music through my system and everything sounds clear. Plus the price is great for a speaker of this quality.

I had seen this center-channel speaker from Polk Audio in an audio-visual store for $189. Just before purchasing it, I decided to go online and found the same speaker here for this price. It has superb sound, and the delivery was extraordinarily punctual, arriving by UPS overnight. I know where to start my search in the future!

Pros: The sound in my home theater is much better than it used to be with the Polk Audio TSi CS10 speaker. This was a very good investment for me

Cons:

CJ from Hartford, CT on 2/22/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am in the process of putting together a home theater system. Initially I only had two front speakers - Polk Audio TSi200's hooked to a Pioneer VSX 1040 receiver. The sound was great but you could sense there was something missing when playing songs on my iPod or watching a DVD - particularly the vocals were not too clear. Adding this center speaker simply had a day-and-night difference and music sounds beautiful as do DVDs. I stream a lot through my Roku box and I am not too happy with the sound quality of streaming videos, but that probably is because the original signal itself is poor. Looking forward to a more fulfilling musical experience - this speaker system has been really good so far!

Pros: Already mentioned above

Cons: Not much of a con, but the size is clearly something you have to be prepared for.

Caleek from Rockford Il on 2/1/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After doing some research on center channel speakers for Amps that don't cost $1200 I decide to buy these. I could not be happier. They have crisp full sound with little to no distortion. I had a Sony surround sound system and slowly upgraded. After purchasing Energy CF-50's for my front channels they overwhelmed my center channel Sony speaker. The Sony just didn't measure up. In fact voices seemed muffled and were hard to hear. After hooking up the Polk Tsi100 the voice correction was perfect and they sound great with music or Bluray movies. I purchased the open box and they were in perfect condition. Don't be afraid to save a little extra with open box. Crutchfield is a trusted seller.

Pros: Price, performance and clarity

Cons: almost to big for a center channel.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had been considering buying this speaker for a while and for whatever reason didn't. My procrastination cost me $30 extra, but after hearing it I'm not the least bit upset! Those who say that your center channel is the most important speaker is exactly right. I've incorporated it with a set of Polk Audio RM10-5 pack speaker system I bought a few years ago. The sound is much clearer & crisper than what we had before. I took the old center channel and used it as a rear 6th speaker in our setup. We have a Polk PSW111 sub and all is driven by a Denon AVR888 receiver. Movies & TV have never been better, you won't go wrong with this speaker!

Pros: Excellent sound!

Cons: It's a little big, but if you have the room go for it.

Pros: Sound and price.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Polk Audio TSi CS10

SpiderRico from Columbia, MO on 12/5/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Originally for my center channel speaker I took a Logitech 8" active sub woofer and turned it into a passive sub and jerry rigged it with an old car stereo tweeter because my center channel just wasn't getting it done. Found this guy at Crutchfield for a great price and also with free shipping which beat the local big box store and internet prices. It is just as good if not better. Looks great and the girlfriend isn't complaining about how ugly my center channel speaker looks anymore. Keep in mind this speaker is pretty big. I would recommend the CS20 for rooms that are extremely large, but for my mid-sized living room this is a perfect speaker. And for this price you can't go wrong. Also you simply cannot beat the service that Crutchfield offers.

Pros: Can't beat the price, especially with free shipping.

Cons: It is pretty big, but hey, bigger is better.

Great speaker, impressed with Polk products

I purchased this center channel speaker to replace my in-walls. With all the good reviews and feedbacks, I decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised with the output of this speaker. The sound was clear with right amount of bass. I loved the sub-woofer type air vent on the back. I have to agree that bigger sounds better. I dont remember if i ordered black or Cherry but I received cherry which is not a big deal for me. I have started to become a fan of Polk speakers, it started with the 10" sub-woofer and now the center channel. Good product for the price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TSi CS1 center speaker is a good match for my Polk Monitor Series II bookshelf speakers that I use for front right and left channels. These Polk speakers, together with a pair of rear speakers, provide wonderfully clean sound for my TV and listening to music.

Great Center Channel Speaker

Dave from Chicago, IL on 7/24/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I teamed this up with Polk TSi 400 floor standing speakers and RTi A1 bookshelf speakers (which I used as my surround sound speakers) to replace my Bose Acumass 10 speakers. I was hoping the woofers in all these speakers would negate the need for a powered sub-woofer, I was wrong and followed up with a Polk sub-woofer. But this center speaker very clearly reproduces the sounds one would expect out of a center speaker. They sound and look beautiful and with the discount I purchased them at it was a great deal. Strongly recommended.

Pros:

Cons:

Having a quality center channel certainly makes a difference.

Nathan from Huntsville, AL on 6/17/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently upgraded from a packaged home theater in a box center channel to the Polk TSi CS10, and wow, what a difference it makes. I had focused on upgrading my front stereo speakers, but I never realized what I was missing in movies and TV by not having a quality center channel. Even with the volume turned up with my old center speaker, my wife would continually ask "what did they say?," but now dialog and other sounds come through clear as a bell. The speaker was a little bigger than I expected, and doesn't work sitting in front of a TV that's just sitting on top of a TV stand. I had to get a new TV stand with a separate mount for the TV to make it work, so definitely keep that in mind. In terms of quality, though, the speaker is everything I had hoped for and more. I highly recommended it, especially for the cost.

Excellent Center Channel

Clint from Hammond, La on 5/9/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This center channel is one of the clearest and most defined that I have heard. I listened to quite a few different models from different companies over a three or four week time span. I compared other companies products and even different models from polk and decided to get the TSi CS10. WOW, I am very glad I chose the TSi. Other more pricey brands didn't sound as natural to me. This Polk center channel really delivers! Polk has really done a great job with this line of speakers in respect to sound quality, but another important aspect to me is appearance. These speakers look as good as they sound. The piano black ends coupled with the smooth black front makes for a great looking speaker. My orignal plan was to conceal my center channel, but this one is so nice looking, that I had to keep it visible. Polks quality and reputation, very reasonable price, excellent sound quality, excellent appearance.... this is definately a great center channel for any theater system.,

Roger from Tehachapi, Ca on 2/7/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was a little concerned when I opened the package and noticed only one input, my receiver has two center channels. By going through the manual on the receiver, I did find out how to use it with one input. The sound is very clean, good response throughout the range. Using it with an older Athena surround system and it blends in nicely. A nice speaker at a good price.

Driver Technology

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.

Enclosure Design

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.

Connections

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.

Mounting Options

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.

Just installed a new home theater receiver and was somewhat disappointed in the center channel sound. Decided the age (15 years) and unknown quality (hand-me-down from a friend) of my center speaker was probably part of the problem. Read a number of reviews and found this speaker rated well in all of them, and found the price very reasonable.[ Tim  Mar 10, 2017 ]

This was recommended by a Crutchfield rep awhile back as a good complement to my Polk TSi300 speakers[ Timothy  Mar 04, 2017 ]
I was in the process of replacing my front speakers in a 5.1 set up. The rep in the online chat recommended I replace the center speaker in order to match the new speakers and get the best sound quality. The small center speaker I have would not pair with the Polk OWM3 speakers I was planning on buying. They gave me this recommendation and it fit both my needs and my budget. The only down side is that it is a lot larger than my old speaker so I will have to set up a shelf for speaker.[ Kraig  Feb 26, 2017 ]

Great reviews of this product on an online review site.

voice matched to my TSI400 speakers and I wanted a replacement for my old polk RM center channel[ D  Dec 30, 2015 ]
Polk sound & quality, crutchfield reviews and data specs.[ Jaime  Dec 28, 2015 ]
I upgraded my L/R front speakers to TSi400. These are a replacement of my Polk RM101's and I quickly figured out that the RM7 center would be inadequate when paired with the new towers.[ Daniel  Dec 26, 2015 ]
At first my decision was based on size but after looking at all the reviews and specifications I still would have purchased this speaker regardless of how much room I had. Especially with the price and crutchfield is an easy choice to purchase through especially with their great reviews with customer support and warranties to stand by the product they sell.[ Sean  Dec 26, 2015 ]
I picked the center channel because of the size of the speakers, the way it looks and the cost. And the other reviews were positive.[ JASON  Dec 15, 2015 ]
To Complete my Polk Audio Speaker system. The only problem is that I need it in cherry color and Crutchfield don't have it.[ JESUS  Dec 15, 2015 ]
Needed center speaker. This was highly reviewed and fit my budget.[ Steven  Dec 11, 2015 ]
This is a great center channel speaker for 3.1, 5.1 and 7.1 sound systems especially with the Polk Tsi300 towers I am using for the front speakers.[ PTC4WW  Dec 11, 2015 ]
Very good reviews and a great price.[ Steve  Dec 11, 2015 ]

Great rating, advisor recommended the center channel match the front speakers I chose.[ Jacob  Dec 08, 2015 ]
My whole theater speaker system were Bose 201, 301, with center speaker, I started with the sub 1st and now center speaker and my next upgrade will be rear surround speakers.[ Harold  Dec 06, 2015 ]

I didn't break mine in. I don't usually play at a high volume though. Almost 2 years of heavy use and no problems at all.[ Karl  Sep 30, 2017 ]
I had mine connected to an onkyo receiver.does not connect directly to a flat tv if that's your idea.[ edison  Jul 21, 2017 ]
This is not a soundbar. It only has connections for speaker wire and will require an audio amplifier to provide the power and signal.[ Austin  Jul 20, 2017 ]
Yes, but you must have an amplifier to drive it. It is not a powered speaker. Sounds good though.[ Barry  Jul 20, 2017 ]
I connected my speaker to an audio receiver, which is connected to flat tv screen that has hdmi connections[ Rose  Jul 20, 2017 ]
there are hdmi connections on the tv, but I hooked everything up to a receiver for a complete entertainment system...best bet would be to call crutchfield...there the best info source...[ JONAS A  Jul 19, 2017 ]
You may be able to get a replacement tweeter directly from Polk. You can reach their Customer/Tech Support department by dialing: 800-377-7655 I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Apr 05, 2017 ]  Staff
Speakers don't support impedance, receivers and amplifiers do. Just in case it's a 8 ohm speaker and just about all amplifiers and recievers will do fine.[ Carlos  Jan 10, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

They do no feature the exact same tweeter material so it won't be a perfect match but Polk's signature performance will still shine through allowing them to work very well together, yes. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Mar 16, 2016 ]  Staff
The TSi400 speakers use a 2-way crossover to send the high frequencies to the tweeter and the low frequencies to the woofers so they would be considered 2-way speakers. 4-way speakers would use a 4-way crossover to divide the frequencies to 4 individual woofers/tweeters.[ Larry  Dec 06, 2015 ]  Staff
Yes they do.[ Blake  Nov 27, 2015 ]
No, it does not. It requires a flat surface large enough to accommodate its four feet, one at each corner of the enclosure. Great value in a center channel speaker - very happy with mine.[ Joshua  Nov 27, 2015 ]
I use it as a large speaker. It works great with that setting.[ WILLIAM  Mar 15, 2016 ]
This speaker is actually bigger than it looks. My receiver has a mic'd set up feature, so it sets it up acoustically on its own. That said, I think setting it to large would be fine. I get big sound out of this speaker.[ EAN N  Jun 08, 2015 ]
yes, you stereo receiver most likely can be in relation to the volume of the speakers[ COMPUTER HELP  Jun 07, 2015 ]
I have it paired with some JBL ES90's and it sounds very good. It is definitely not overpowered by them. A excellent value for $.[ MATT J  Jun 07, 2015 ]
Thanks for your input mr. Scott, by "match" i mean voice match, i checked your recommended speakers and would love to have those, but it will cost me much to ship them since i'm based here in the middle east, and polk is unknown here, so i pretty much would have to stick with my bose unfortunately, do you think polk tsi cs10 would go with them? I also checked svs subwoofer but couldnt find here in crutchfield, would you recommend polk psw111 instead? [ Martson  Apr 26, 2014 ]
Thanks for your input mr. Anthony[ Martson  Apr 26, 2014 ]
Not sure, but I would not recommend this center channel. It had a very hollow and unnatural sound. I ended up returning them.[ Anthony  Apr 26, 2014 ]
Scott says: By "match", you mean other than appearance right? Because there are several pictures and specs. of Polk's TSi series speakers available online, etc.to answer that. So i suppose you mean sonic performance/power handling? Forget about Bose, I suggest Polk's CS10 and at least two TSi 400's for the mains, and possibly two more 400's for the surrounds and two 300's for the rear. My kid has this set-up wired to a Sony STR DA 2800 ES. It sounds fantastic, movies, TV, online stuff, everything sounds great. I like Polk's TSi's because they're built well, sound great, and are inexpensive. Plus Polk doesn't bother trying to get tons of bass from them because I guess they figure you're going to hook them in with a sub,, however I also have a CS20 four TSi 500's, two 400's used as main/surrounds/back wired into an older Sony STR DA 5700, and these put out awesome bass, even at lower listening levels and you don't need high power amps. to drive them. Maybe you don't have the room for all these "bigger" speakers, buy a new home... just kidding. Maybe what you're after is a CS10 and two or four TSi 300's, you'll likely upgrade to the 400's soon. I'd reccommend a SVS subwoofer in there, or two, thanks.[ SCOTT L  Apr 26, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Polk Audio TSi CS10 Center Channel (Black) would be a nice compliment to front left and right speakers in a surround sound system that have woofers and tweeters that are the same size and that are also made from the same material. This will allow the speakers to be voice-matched and reproduce sound in a similar fashion.If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.[ Krissy  Mar 04, 2014 ]  Staff
Patricia, I am very happy with this speaker. I think it would work well with your jbl's.[ ROGER G  Dec 28, 2013 ]
The Polk center speaker is very crisp and clear and should do very well with the jbl speakers. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy the Polk center speaker as much as I have.[ GREGORY  Dec 28, 2013 ]
