Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    The high performance anchor to your compact home theater action
    No other compact loudspeaker outperforms the TL3 Compact Center Channel Loudspeaker. That's because the TL3 is built small, but packed with big speaker technology. Dual high performance drivers work in concert with the superior Ring Radiator Tweeter (no other compact speaker has it). Patented PowerPort Bass Venting works with the steel-reinforced enclosure. The result of over two years of fundamental, groundbreaking research into the performance of compact speakers, the TL3 Center Channel Loudspeaker presents pinpoint detail in the mids and highs for realistic, wide soundstage imaging and deeper bass response than any other speaker in its size class. The TL3 Center Channel Speaker is included in the TL350 5-pack and is also available separately for use as a "rear center" in extended (7.1 and beyond!) multi-channel audio systems.

Details from Polk Audio

    The incredible accuracy of the Ring Radiator Tweeter
    The Ring Radiator Tweeter has never been used in a compact loudspeaker before! You will hear the kind of incredible accuracy and detail (beyond even 30kHz!) you expect from a full-sized loudspeaker. The Ring Radiator Tweeter is found only in the world's highest of high-end loudspeakers, including our own award-winning flagship LSi and LCi Series speakers.

    Effortless volume thanks to Aerated Polypropylene Cone Material
    Developed using our patented Dynamic Balance process and specially designed for a compact speaker, the Blackstone TL3 APP Cone is based on the innovative cone technology used in our flagship LSi speakers. It's lightweight and stiffer for quicker transient response,, with better internal damping. This results in greater linearity and lower distortion to help achieve greater dynamic range and smoother frequency response.

    More efficient Optimized Linear Motion Motor Structure
    Engineered for better compact speaker performance, our OLM Motor Structure flattens the BL Curve, making cone movement more efficient than previously possible, reducing distortion and extending the small speaker's dynamic range right up into big speaker territory.

    Deeper bass with PowerPort
    Polk Audio's patented bass venting technology, added to a compact loudspeaker, is like bringing the big bass drum to the party. PowerPort decreases port turbulence and virtually eliminates "port noise," for a massive 3dB boost in bass response. With wider dynamic range, Blackstone TL3 blends naturally with your Subwoofer, for more realistic bass impact in your theater.

    Steel-reinforced Curved Enclosure Design
    Rigid steel plates reinforce the acoustically inert Blackstone TL3 enclosure, adding weight and reducing internal resonances, even at high volume levels.

    Sold individually for more advanced system building options
    Match Blackstone TL3 speakers with the Polk Audio Subwoofer that best fits your space (go wireless!). Add individually-available, perfectly timbre-matched Blackstone TL3 speakers to expand your system into the realms of 6.1, 7.1 and beyond!

    All Blackstone TL Series Compact Speakers Feature:
    Time Lens Technology
    Time Lens technology aligns the acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver on the same spatial plane for superior imaging, while an acoustic lens incorporated in the grille smoothes the tweeter's frequency response. This alignment and grille lens technology creates imaging realism and frequency balance unheard of in small, high performance satellite speakers.

    Curved Enclosure Design
    Employs non-parallel surfaces that not only lead to a stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert enclosure, but they also result in less audible coloration from internal surface resonances. We've literally designed-out the usual limitations of small-enclosures. It's a new category of compact loudspeaker: the kind that sounds amazing. (And looks great doing it.)

    Dynamic Balance® Driver Technology
    If you could tune out the bad sounds before they even happen, you'd do it, wouldn't you? Polk Audio's patented Dynamic Balance process allows us to design our drivers specifically for flatter frequency response, revealing the sharpest details and a more lifelike transparency, with absolutely no strain even at high volume. It's a bold, rich, warm and lifelike sound.

    Hi-Gloss "Blackstone" Finish
    A durable, deep automotive-strength finish that matches today's most stylish flat-panel TVs and the decor they live in: yours.

    Multiple Mounting Options
    Compact means go-anywhere for Blackstone TL: on shelves, on the wall, on stands. Built-in Keyhole Slots and threaded inserts (that fit virtually any brackets) give you multiple mounting options.
