Polk Audio Blackstone TL350/DSWPRO 550WI Speaker System
The Blackstone TL Series of satellites and subs is an evolution of Polk’s RM speaker series that uses many of the same driver elements found in the company’s reference LSi speakers. The TL350/DSWPro 550wi sat/sub system is made up of four TL3 satellites, a TL3c center-channel speaker, and a DSWPro 550wi subwoofer that can be used wirelessly via an included transmitter that connects to the A/V receiver.
TL satellites are housed in steelreinforced enclosures; this is said to reduce cabinet vibrations and resonances. The DSWPro subwoofer uses the Polk Room Optimizer to tune bass response depending on subwoofer placement. It also has a remote control with four presets. Somewhat counterintuitively, the Blackstone TL Series is available in both black and white finishes. Speaking of which, let's see a show of hands.
