TSx Series Loudspeaker: Introducing the TSx Series of loudspeakers
from Polk; stylish and quality-built for high performance. The high efficiency
TSx Series loudspeaker features a unique curved enclosure wrapped in a
wood-grain vinyl. The loudspeaker employs Dynamic Balance tuned drivers and
tweeters for realistic mid-range, deep, well-blended bass, and incredible detail
- for a classic Polk sound that is naturally open, spacious, and clear.
High Efficiency Design: The TSx Series loudspeaker can be driven by
practically any electronics, even the most modestly-powered amplifier or
receiver. Whether you're connecting them to the newest digital receiver, or to
your vintage amp, the TSx Series loudspeaker can produce sound that's spacious
and clear, enveloping and realistic.
Dynamic Balance Drivers: The TSx Series loudspeaker uses Polk's
Dynamic Balance Driver Technology for great sound. 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. Using just the right materials enables Polk to tune out
performance-robbing resonances before they occur.
Klipple Optimized Motor: Klipple Optimized Motor employs a
laser and sophisticated software for large scale analysis of the TSx Series
loudspeaker's drivers in motion. Using this state-of-the-art laser and software
process, Polk engineers were able to optimize the speaker's motor structure,
voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.
Silk/Polymer Dome Tweeter: The TSx550T tower loudspeaker
features a 1.0" silk/polymer Dynamic Balance dome tweeter with a powerful
neodymium magnet structure that delivers clear and detailed highs for realistic
reproduction of vocals and instruments, without fatigue.
Bi-Laminate Composite Woofers: The TSx550T tower
loudspeaker features two 5.25" bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance
midrange drivers for crisp, detailed midrange and two 8" bi-laminate composite
Dynamic Balance woofers for smooth, natural deep bass extension. These Dynamic
Balance bi-laminate composite cone woofers are lightweight and stiff with
exceptional damping. They use butyl rubber surrounds, vented polyamide voice coils,
massive motor structures, and high-temperature aramid fiber spiders to create a
driver of exceptionally high efficiency, clear bass, better linearity, lower
distortion, and greater durability.
High Performance Crossover: The loudspeaker employs a high performance
crossover system for optimum blending and time alignment of the overall speaker.
Mylar bypass capacitors are used to reveal extended high frequency details.
TSx-Series Timbre-Matched: All Polk loudspeakers are timbre-matched
within their series, designed with the same components throughout, to achieve
seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems.
Frequency Response: The TSx550T tower loudspeaker has an
overall frequency response of 26Hz-25kHz, while the -3dB frequency response is
Curved MDF Cabinet: The TSx550T tower loudspeaker utilizes a unique
curved cabinet design which creates a stronger, more rigid and acoustically
inert enclosure. The elegantly curved side panels, which create non-parallel
surfaces, reduce unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration.
Non-resonant all-MDF construction with front-to-back and side-to-side internal
bracing, and a 3/4"thick baffle ensures cleaner,
clearer, more lifelike sound quality.
Note: The TSx550T tower loudspeaker is available in either a
black or cherry finish.
Flared Port: The TSx Series loudspeaker features a
critically-tuned, front-firing 3" flared port. The flared port improves air flow and
minimizes port noise ("chuffing"), while ensuring good low frequency extension with low distortion. This flared port
design lets the TSx speaker reveal realistic, natural, full-bodied sound with
Anti-Diffraction Grille: The computer modeled
anti-diffraction grille minimizes grille interference, so it doesn't get in the
way of your sound. This black cloth grille is detachable.
Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The TSx550T tower loudspeaker has
two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts connected by gold-plated jumpers.
Using the dual 5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers. The
5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors,
spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The speaker terminals are
color coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).
Placement: Create an equilateral triangle between the
speaker and the listening position. If you notice video distortion or
discoloration, immediately move the speaker away from the video source.
Integrated Feet: The TSx550T tower speaker features four
integrated conical non-slip feet to ensure stability for precise positioning.
