The Polk Audio Blackstone TL1 Center is a compact center speaker built for use with home entertainment systems. This speaker is aimed at delivering high quality audio for voices and dialog. Time Lens technology lines up the tweeter and mid-bass driver, creating superior imaging. The tweeter's frequency response is smoothed out by an acoustic lens built into the grille. A rear port is tuned to offer dual driver support for satellites and a subwoofer. The curved design allows for a more durable enclosure that doesn't affect the audio, although this also means a lack of audio resonance. A 5-way binding post offers easy and versatile setup, and installation into ceiling or wall brackets is supported.
