Polk Audio has launched its newest T Series loudspeakers, a collection of floor-standing tower, center channel, and bookshelf speakers modeled after the company's first Monitor Series loudspeakers that launched the company 43 years ago.
The new T Series includes the T50 floor-standing tower speakers ($129.95/each), the T30 center channel speaker ($129.95), and the T15 bookshelf speakers ($99.95/pair). The line is designed to serve as the entry-level system for listeners seeking an improved home theater experience for around $500. From TV to movies, sporting events, games, and music, the T Series delivers home theater sound at accessible price points.
Designed with a furniture-grade black oak finish, each T Series loudspeaker cabinet is constructed for premium acoustics to deliver years of enjoyment. Due to Polk’s decades of experience designing high-performance audio equipment, these speakers offer bright highs, clear voicing, wide-open mid-range, and deep bass response, allowing for an even more immersive entertainment experience, according to the company.
“Polk engineers are famous for saying it’s easy to make expensive speakers sound great,” said Michael Greco, global brand director at Polk. “The challenge is making an entry-level line with exceptional sound that far exceeds its price. The T Series does just that, providing a balanced audio reproduction and incredible listening experience, whether you’re an avid movie watcher or music fan.”
Serving as the flagship member of the T Series, the T50 floor-standing tower speaker features a 1-inch silk dome tweeter with Polk's custom wave guide, helping to control dispersion, increase the power handling of the tweeter, and minimize unwanted high frequencies. Two 6.5-inch bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance drivers produce open, uncolored mid-range and punchy, dynamic bass, while an additional two 6.5-inch sub bass radiators deliver powerful output bass at the lowest frequencies.
The T30 center speaker—also featuring the same 1-inch silk dome tweeter as the T50—has two 5.25-inch Dynamic Balance drivers and a tuned, rear-firing bass port. Finally, the T15 bookshelf speakers boast front-firing bass ports, keyhole slots for wall mounting, 5.25-inch Dynamic Balance drivers, and 0.75-inch Dynamic Balance silk dome tweeters to fill rooms in full, detailed sound.
