The Blackstone TL1600 is a compact 5.1-channel surround sound system-in-a-box from Polk Audio. The TL150 is identical but lacks a subwoofer and costs $100 less. The package includes a center speaker and four satellites, each with a 1/2" silk-dome tweeter and 2-1/2" long-throw driver manufactured using Dynamic Balance technology, which promotes a flat frequency response. The "TL" refers to Time Lens technology, which encompasses several acoustic mechanisms designed to produce superior imaging and frequency response. The 50W-RMS subwoofer adds a powerful bass response, featuring an 8" long-throw poly composite driver.
