The Most Important Speaker in Your Home Theater System:Even in a smaller room theater setup, the center channel speaker carries the load of over 50% of a movies effects and audio, from directional cues to dialogue. Timbre-matching is important, so that all the speakers in your system feature the same tonal qualities (for seamless transitions). The CS10 is a small-sized, hard working, high performance center channel speaker timbre-matched to the TSi Series, so you can build a small home theater for a reasonable price without sacrificing performance. Its innovative angled-top design gives you more placement flexibility; with perfect aiming whether you place it on top of your TV or below the screen. Do you put your center channel speaker on top of your television, or below the TV? The best place for a center channel speaker is as close as possible to the center of your TV screen, either above or below, so that it can more realistically project the sound that anchors the action to your screen. The CS center channel speakers, CS20 and the smaller CS10, featuring an innovative cabinet design that gives you the flexibility to choose which placement works best for you. Choose the flat side if you have an angled stand, or are placing the speaker above your television. Flip the enclosure and use the angled cabinet to 'aim' the imaging when you?re placing the speaker on the floor in front of your TV or under your screen. Revel in a wide, deep, dynamic center channel soundstage with pinpoint details. Because they are timbre-matched to the TSi Series, you can build a system with seamless, realistic blending throughout, for a more immersive surround sound environment! Key features of the Polk Audio CS10 Center Channel Speaker:Achieve perfect imaging with more placement flexibility because the angled CS enclosure flips to accomodate TV-top or below-screen placement.Unlike other speakers in this price range, TSi enclosures are constructed of extensively braced, solid MDF with 3/4-inch baffles. This virtually eliminates internal resonances and damps energy-stealing vibrations, for more efficient operation and more transparent sound.Beautiful pewter accents, a high gloss piano-finish black top plate and your choice of stylish black or cherry wood-grain finishes make TSi speakers a part of your decor.Polks proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.Klippel motor optimization uses laser measurement technology to ensure a smooth excursion path at either end of the volume spectrum for uniform performance at both low and high volumes.TSi design combines smaller drivers (for more overall driver area with less driver mass) and narrow baffle geometry, for wider range and more spacious soundstaging, so every seat in the house hears a prime performance.Unlike horns or metal domes, silk dome tweeters deliver clear and detailed highs, without fatigue, even at high volume.Durable, efficient, and tuned with our Dynamic Balance process, TSi Series polycarbonate cones produce smooth, natural sound.Surprisingly deep, musical bass response thanks to our critically tuned flared port venting system, which minimizes port noise ('chuffing') and smooths the turbulence of port air flow, to reveal big, full-bodied bass that blends effortlessly with the speakers overall dynamics.All Polk loudspeakers are timbre-matched within their series, designed with the same components throughout, to achieve seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems.Our high efficiency design results in sound thats spacious and clear, warm and realistic, when combined with practically any electronics, even the most modestly-powered amplifer or receiver.Our high performance crossover system boosts performance with premium components, like mylar bypass capacitors, to extend response in the higher, more detail-oriented frequencies.Gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts, for the most secure connection options.All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques.
