Even in a smaller room theater setup, the center channel speaker carries the load of over 50% of a movie’s 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.

CS10 Features:

  • Achieve perfect imaging with more placement flexibility because the angled CS enclosure flips to accommodate 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 the stylish black finish makes TSi speakers a part of your decor.

  • Polk’s proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows the 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 sound staging, 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 the Dynamic Balance process, TSi Series polycarbonate cones produce smooth, natural sound.

  • Surprisingly deep, musical bass response thanks to the critically tuned flared port venting system, which minimizes port noise (chuffing) and smoothes 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.

  • The high efficiency design results in sound that’s spacious and clear, warm and realistic, when combined with practically any electronics, even the most modestly-powered amplifier or receiver.

  • The 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. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid center channel

Pros: Got this center as an "upgrade" as Im currently using Polk Audio T15's as my main F-L/R. This center sounds amazing considering its not the right match for the T15s(I'm moving these to the rear soon). I just purchased a Polk Audio PSW10 and boy did that change the game(loudest 50watt sub ever , hands down). I'm currently using an old er Bose acoustimass 5 series II as "speaker B" hooked up to a Sony STR-DH750,and this center channel sounds fantastic with just those! This speaker is large and had to build a TV stand (raised it 3 inches because in front of TV is only option for placement ) so I could see the bottom of the screen. No biggie. Highly recommend this speaker if you want great quality, good range, low price.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: if your receiver has a built in crossover, set center to "small" and crossover anywhere from 70-140 depending on your setup i.e main speakers' size

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, but heavy and tricky to mount on wall.

Pros: Sound-wise, this speaker delivers good value for its price. Nice clear dialog on movies and TV shows and no problem blending into a 5.1 system.

Cons: The speaker is heavy. I had to mount it on a wall over the center of the TV. Given its weight and height, this proved to be a bit of a job. The speaker doesn't come with any mounting hardware, so I had to drill holes into it to mount 4-inch angle brackets, and these then needed to be attached to the wall with mollies. I understand that Polk (and perhaps others) does sell center speaker "shelves." Not sure I could have used one of these because I just barely had room for the speaker. Be sure to check your dimensions before purchasing. I also spray-painted the angle brackets black so that they would not be noticeable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Sound is clear. That's the best factor for center speaker especially when listen to news and soundtrack from movies. Physically nice shape. Bass is not bad; little bit low since it is a center speaker. Heavy body helps sound stable and tight.

Cons: Shape is quite big; can't put in the front of the TV, need to be lower or higher.

Other Thoughts: Definitely like it. Best center speak with the best offering price. Quality beyond it price. Newegg shipped product well and careful packing. Nicely done shipping and handling.

Pros: Great clear sound. Great price (Sale price of $90 on 11/20/2014 ). Quality construction.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am using as my center channel for an Onkyo TX-NR535, excellent sound.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase

Pros: I just upgraded my entire home theater and this center channel is excellent. This is used for all TV viewing and this center really made a difference in the vocals and dialogue. I paired this with Polk PSW505 sub and Monitor 70's and am in Heaven !!!

Cons: None - Jut be careful on dimensions and placement. This is big but sounds great.

4 out of 5 eggsFor the right Room and set up

Pros: Very nice looking speaker in person. Has a real nice sound.

Cons: Prone to smudges on the end caps.

Other Thoughts: This center speaker can "make" your set up, just go in with some basic knowledge; it's great for a small to medium sized room, it can use extra power to enhance the overall sound stage, should be paired up with same make and series.

With that being said, you can mix and match any speaker brand you want however, achieving a seamless sound stage is generally the preferred goal!

The CS1 can and should be paired with the Monitor/TSi series. The Monitor 50 and TSi 300 for towers. The Monitor 30's and 40's and the TSi 100 and 200 would also pair wonderfully with the CS1.

The CS1 is an excellent speaker but can be easily overpowered it paired in the wrong set up. If you're running the medium to large towers, the CS20 or CS2 is IMO the way to go.

I had the opportunity to demo the CS10 and 20 side by side. At first glance, the CS10 is musical, produces great clarity and intelligible dialogue. Enter the CS20, dial them both up and the CS20 leaves the 10 appearing to struggle and sound under powered.

The CS10 is an awesome speaker and the performance can be unparalleled when placed in the right set up. Bottom line, recommended for med to small mains, for a med to small room, and can handle external power.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge

Pros: Sound quality is awesome. Works Great with my Yamaha receiver. Fits well with my 2 polk audio 4ft left and right speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsCenter Speaker

Pros: I have yet to hook this speaker up. I do have 4 other sets of polk speakers throughout my home and in my garage, lanai and office!
Without hesitation I will give this speaker a 5 star rating as I know it will preform as good as the rest..... I am very comfortable rating any Polk Speaker very high because of my experience with all the others from 35B to the big daddy T 75 all being run through a Yamaha RX-A820

Cons: How nice I have to add something in this field. The Con is that I have to waste my time typing in the con field. these speakers rock!
