Product Details

Polk Audio 5.1 Channel Home Theater Speaker System - TL1600

Enjoy powerful, theater quality sound in your own home with the new Polk Audio 5.1 Channel Home Theater Speakers - TL1600. Polk Audio has included 4 TL1 speakers, a TL1 center speaker, and a professionally-matched TL1600 powered Subwoofer in this system, making it the perfect start to any home theater. By including multiple features Polk Audio has developed, you are ensured that these speakers will continuously offer dynamic and powerful sound throughout any movie, show, or game. These features include a Silk Dome Tweeter, an Aperiodic Tuned Rear-Firing Bass Port, as well as Polk Audio’s Dynamic Balance® Technology. With a Silk Dome Tweeter, you will enjoy the classic, clear, and detailed Polk performance you expect. By adding an aperiodic Tuned Rear-Firing Bass Port, this Polk Audio Speaker System controls port air flow for big bass response and perfect speaker-subwoofer blending that is never expected from a small loudspeaker. On top of that, with Polk Audio’s Dynamic Balance® Technology, these speakers deliver a smooth and flat frequency response, superior transparency and detail, and the ability to play extremely loud, which has never before been heard out of such a small speaker. With these features as well as many great others, this Polk Audio Home Theater Speaker System is sure to rock your world.


  • Time Lens Technology
    Time Lens technology aligns the acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver on the same spatial plane for superior imaging, while an acoustic lens incorporated in the grille smoothes the tweeter's frequency response. This alignment and grille lens technology creates imaging realism and frequency balance unheard of in small, high performance satellite speakers
  • Curved Enclosure Design
    Employs non-parallel surfaces that not only lead to a stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert enclosure, but they also result in less audible coloration from internal surface resonances. We've literally designed-out the usual limitations of small-enclosures. It's a new category of compact loudspeaker: the kind that sounds amazing. (And looks great doing it.)
  • Dynamic Balance® Driver Technology
    If you could tune out the bad sounds before they even happen, you'd do it, wouldn't you? Polk Audio's patented Dynamic Balance process allows us to design our drivers specifically for flatter frequency response, revealing the sharpest details and a more lifelike transparency, with absolutely no strain even at high volume. It's a bold, rich, warm and lifelike sound
  • Hi-Gloss "Blackstone" Finish
    A durable, deep automotive-strength finish that matches today's most stylish flat-panel TVs and the decor they live in: yours
  • Multiple Mounting Options
    Compact means go-anywhere for Blackstone TL: on shelves, on the wall, on stands. Built-in Keyhole Slots and threaded inserts (that fit virtually any brackets) give you multiple mounting options
