Make every movie night way more exciting with Polk's TL350 five-speaker system.
These speakers use some advanced technologies to create incredibly lifelike
sound that draws you into your on-screen entertainment. The four Blackstone
satellite speakers and the Blackstone center channel speaker produce effortless
sound with startling dynamics, especially given their small size. Just add the
Polk powered subwoofer of your choice to get deep, room-shaking bass. You can
even upgrade to a seven-channel home theater when you add an extra pair of
satellite speakers to the mix.
Advanced technology produces effortlessly natural sound
Polk's latest breakthrough is "Time Lens" technology, which aligns the
drivers in such a way that high- and low-frequency sounds all reach your ears at
the same time. It improves the speakers' soundstaging and imaging, so that
you'll start to forget you're watching a movie and really feel like you're part
of the action. This technology makes this system great for video games, too,
because you'll be able to clearly pinpoint where sounds are coming from all
around you, like monster roars or enemy gunfire.
Polk's enclosure design puts performance first
The satellite and center channel speakers also use an "acoustic lens"
in their grilles to disperse sound waves in a way that makes your music and
movie soundtracks sound larger and more open. They feature Polk's acclaimed
PowerPort® technology to help reinforce lower bass output. Plus, each sturdy
cabinets are reinforced with steel plates to help fight resonances that can
muddy the sound.
