Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio CSR

Polk designed their CSR center channel speaker for great sound at a budget-friendly price. Borrowing driver technologies from Polk's higher-end speaker lines, the CSR delivers precise dialogue and movie sound effects. Pair it with the R150 bookshelf or R300 tower speakers for seamless home theater surround sound.

Polk designed their CSR center channel speaker for great sound at a budget-friendly price. Borrowing driver technologies from Polk's higher-end speaker lines, the CSR delivers precise dialogue and movie sound effects. Pair it with the R150 bookshelf or R300 tower speakers for seamless home theater surround sound.

Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance® drivers feature smooth, accurate response for sound that's natural and detailed. Rubber surrounds increase the speaker's durability and power handling, so it's ready for even the most intense movie soundtracks. The solidly built MDF cabinet resists vibrations that can muddy the sound, and its black finish gives the CSR a clean look that goes well with many TVs and entertainment centers. Five-way binding posts on the back of the speaker provide a secure connection to your receiver or amp — a rare find for a speaker in this price range.

The center channel speaker sounds great. I bought the "scratch and dent" version and it looks great too. Good decision to buy this.

Features

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.

Polymer Composite Woofers: The speaker features two lightweight, yet stiff mineral-filled polymer composite woofers with good damping, giving you high efficiency, excellent bass, and low distortion. For high performance durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround and an acoustically inert stamped driver basket.

Silk/Polymer Tweeter: The speaker has a 0.75" fabric/polymer dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet that provides clear, detailed highs.

Mylar Capacitors: The speaker utilizes Mylar bypass capacitors to extend its high frequency response and improve detail and transparency.

Acoustically Inert Cabinet: The speaker cabinet features all-MDF construction with internal bracings that virtually eliminate sound-muddying resonance.

Port: There is a single critically-tuned port opening on the rear of the speaker that has low port noise for increased and extended bass response.

Grille: The speaker features a removable anti-diffraction cloth grille that minimizes grille diffraction for spacious, three-dimensional imaging.

5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.

Magnetically Shielded: The speaker is magnetically shielded, allowing you to place it on your television without distorting the picture.

Timbre-Matched: The Polk CSR is designed to be used as a center-channel in any Polk Audio home theater or multi-channel music system for a more realistic seamless surround sound environment.

Mounting: The center-speaker comes with 4 rubber self-adhesive feet to help secure the speaker in place to prevent slippage and vibration. The center-speaker does not come with any type of wall-bracket or key-hole slot for wall-mounting the speakers.

Frequency Response Note

Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 40Hz-24kHz, and the -3dB frequency response is 55-20kHz.
