TL1600 Blackstone in Use
In our large home theater room the small TL1600 multi-channel system seems almost a little lost. We treated, set up and calibrated the compact speaker system with the same attention as we would with a full-size high-end surround system, to sound as optimal as possible and to really see and hear what it could do. After several hours of burn-in, the Polk Audio TL1600 was ready to prove itself in movie mode. We put ‘The Hobbit‘ trilogy in the blu-ray disc tray and let the special effects of Smaugs wings and roaring fire blast our ears. Admittedly, the subwoofer doesn't dive into the deepest end of the bass pool, but it does a much better job in the upper layers of the bass, which it plays in our room with vigor and precision. To our surprise, the inconspicuous satellites sounded powerful and very balanced without emphasizing individual frequency ranges, even when playing at absurd volume levels. Fine details are well resolved and are easy to spot in even the busiest battle.
TL1 Satellite Speakers & Center
The four very compact TL1 satellite speakers can be discreetly integrated into most homes due to their small dimensions. On the back is a keyhole bracket with which the speaker can be mounted on a wall. Alternatively, you can use the speakers on a shelf or on a suitable stand. Due to the curved shape and molded ridges on the inside of the cabinet, the compact speakers are sufficiently sturdy and stable. As a special feature, the 'Time lens technology', the tweeter is slightly recessed to bring the acoustic centers of the midrange and tweeter on the same spatial plane. The identical satellites are full two-way systems, each equipped with a 65 mm woofer and one 13 mm silk dome. The center speaker have similar features as the satellites, however, the center speaker is for horizontal installation and has two midrange drivers. On the back you'll find an aperiodic-tuned bass reflex port to optimize and push the bass range slightly.
TL1600 Active Subwoofer
To support the satellites in the bass, Polk Audio include an active down-firing subwoofer suitable for rooms up to 70 square feet. Using the 100-watt active amplifier on the back of the subwoofer in combination with a long-stroke 200mm bass driver, the TL1600 generates plenty of momentum from about 45 Hertz. The equipped amplifier allows for infinite adjustment of the cut-off frequency of 80 to 160 Hz and the phase can be adjusted 180 degrees with a switch. High feet with rubber ends decouple the subwoofer from the floor and create the necessary distance to the floor, allowing the driver to move smoothly and breathe. The downward firing vented port is not susceptible to interfering flow noise due to the large diameter.
High Performance, Compact Size, Surprising Value
Now, professional surround-sound excitement is easier and more accessible than ever before. The TL1600 is a complete home theater system, with four TL1 speakers, a TL1 center speaker and a professionally-matched TL1600 powered subwoofer.

On a volume scale of 1-60 at 3/4 bass through the DN840 (may have to scale, depending on your volume capacities):
10: lowest comfortable listening level in a quiet room
25: average listening:
50: will sound like you're in a movie theater.
60: you will unintentionally jump at every loud noise in a scary movie. Could possibly damage hearing over time.
They get louder, but I've not dared to test the integrity of my ear drums. Even at 60 there was no distortion in the sound.
The bass is incredible even at 1/2 max volume, controlled by a knob on the back of the bass enclosure. At 3/4 bass we're talking solid vibration in the floor, couches and anyone resting on either. Perfect for suspenseful effect. Any higher and it just gets ridiculous. I don't need my ears to vibrate when something explodes on screen.
The finish is a beautiful black piano gloss for the speakers and a slightly flatter-toned black bass enclosure. All speakers were packaged in a felt type of cloth to prevent scratches. They arrived flawless. The speaker cover is a soft satiny material, though caressing the speakers randomly may appear a bit odd to visitors. Best get it out of the way while installing and leave them alone ;). These puppies were solid! They have enough weight to feel very high quality but still light enough to not burden a properly installed mounting bracket.
Installation was a cinch. Instructions weren't needed, but were included for those less versed in audio set up. Positive out to positive in, negative out to negative in. It was more difficult figuring out the mounting plates, AM-20 Pinpoint Mounts (sold separately), to get them into the ceiling.
Overall, I love the speakers and enjoy every moment of audio that comes from my tv now. The sound envelops the listener and pulls them into the artistic experience of movies and music. If there is a better listening experience out there, it's really not necessary if you have the Polk Audio TL1600 Speaker System paired with a decent receiver.

The audio/voice clarity still i felt could have been improved. Other musical instruments pitches are outstanding.
