Blackstone TL1600


The Blackstone TL1600 is a welcome reminder that speakers should be purchased from specialists. The speakers are thoughtfully designed, well built and attractive. Best of all, the sound is clear and immersive. So pick up that machete and wipe your...

This speaker set looks great and sounds even better

Although the bass is well blended, some might prefer a subwoofer with a little more oomph

The Blackstone TL1600 speaker system is beautifully crafted, well engineered and very affordable.

Polk TL1600


Newegg price fluctuates a lot, I got it when it was at 50% off, so keep watching. They ship fast and reliable too.

First thing that will catch your eyes is its sleek curvy and shiny speaker looks. Center speaker is however a little bigger than i thought. Previously I onwned RM7 and 8 series speakers. Sub is way big and fatty, takes good space. That was all about...

Sub is a little bigger in size than i thought. It has to be manualy switched off and on every time you use it. Not sure though it auto switches on or off or not, but not seen working that way. Could not give top rating bcoz of sub size. dont know why i...

I took the chance on buying these without reviews for $300 on black friday weekend. I feel like i stole candy from a baby! These are awesome! Sounds is perfect for my approx 15x20 ft living area. You really need to calibrate it to get the best sound. I...

Sub is kinda big! Not really a con cuz it looks pretty cool. Wish it came with mounts though. I bought some cheap $15 mounts from amaz0ne that worked perfect. I was not about to spend $20-40 on each 0mn1 mount

Surrounds are great. I've seen the price fluctuate quite a bit and if you wait and shop around you can get these for a huge discount. I would probably just buy the surrounds and get a different sub if I could do it again. However the sub may sound...

Surrounds are amazing. Solid construction, sleek design, and very loud and sturdy

Subwoofer is lacking. I have a rather large living area and I wish I would have purchased a larger sub. Also the sub doesn't turn off in auto when I turn everything else off. Has a rather annoying buzzing sound when everything else is off and the sub...

I have TL1900 and its amazing.


I have the TL1900 (not reviewing it because it is out of stock). But the speakers sounds fantastic and the bass really booms. Great for movies.

Superb product


From opening the packaging to installing my surround sound, these speakers really kick. The bass is more than enough and fills the rooms perfectly. Definitely recommend this product to others.

Very Happy With This Purchase


I recently upgraded my TV so I decided I needed to upgrade my sound system as well. I love that the satellite speakers are small and sleek looking. It was easy to set up and I am very happy with the sound quality.

Great sound


I bought these speakers to enhance my home theater. I was looking for quality speakers at a reasonable price. I did my research and chose the Polks. I was primarily interested in speakers that would perform well while watching blu ray concerts on my...

Great compact sound system!


This is my second Polk Audio Sound System and I am very happy with the purchase. Although compact, the four satellite speakers deliver solid performance. The sub-woofer delivers excellent base and the center channel speaker won't disappoint. Got it on...
