Product Description


Let's Get SmallIt's time to get back to basics. Maybe your room's too small for tower loudspeakers. Maybe single-speaker surround systems are not your style.You want small direct-firing speakers that won't overwhelm your home theater or gaming room. You want pinpoint response that reveals the true surround sound realism you demand. Your want the placement flexibility that only compact speakers give. You want the Blackstone system from Polk Audio.The Return Of Real Home TheaterWe won't beat around the bush. While the industry concentrated on fads, we took our groundbreaking RM Series, the original audiophile compact loudspeaker system, back to the drawing board for an extreme technology upgrade.Two years in the designing and engineering, the all new Blackstone TL Series rises like a phoenix in the compact speaker aisle. Now you have a real choice: serious audiophile-engineered loudspeakers that deliver the classic rich, dynamic Polk Audio sound that makes your entertainment come to life. And, because they are small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, you know they'll never get in the way of your style.Continuing A Great Little TraditionPolk Audio was one of the first speaker companies to perfect the compact speaker design. We went beyond just making little speakers and putting a bunch of them in a box for you. Polk Audio's critically acclaimed RM Series speakers were the first to feature heavy-weight, acoustically inert molded enclosures for resonance-free response and timbre-matched components for utterly seamless surround sound effects. The RM design used advanced engineering to compensate for all the usual failings of small speakers, from frequency drop-outs and acoustic dead zones to lack of low-frequency response. Dedicated compact speaker technology really delivered "big speaker sound without the big speaker."Audiophile Home Theater, Just SmallerWhere compact speakers usually skimp, Blackstone TL is extravagant. No paper cones or tiny clip connectors. No lightweight plastic housings or off-the-shelf components. Blackstone TL features new innovations specifically designed to enhance compact speaker performance beyond your wildest dreams. Time Lens TechnologyThe sophisticated laser alignment of the "acoustic center" of the Blackstone TL tweeters with their accompanying drivers results in far superior imaging. An innovative acoustic lens incorporated into the grille produces a high frequency response so smooth that it delivers an astonishingly balanced, utterly realistic performance. No compact speaker has ever sounded this...big! Time Lens technology is the kind of innovation that separates Polk Audio loudspeakers from the crowd.
