Polk’s Blackstone® TL satellite systems use a separate tweeter and midrange in each satellite. The tweeter reproduces a clear and detailed high frequency range without sounding harsh. The midrange used in each satellite provides a rich, full sound much like a large floor standing speaker. Some brands use only a full range driver to reproduce mids and highs.
The bottom line is that Polk subwoofer/satellite systems sound better than the competition. Compare them side by side and hear for yourself why Polk Blackstone TL systems have won the Audio Video International Grand Prix award for best satellite/subwoofer system eight years in a row.
