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.

1 out of 5 eggsIt is junk

Pros: NONE.

Cons: I believed the newegg good reviews, then I bough one here. It turns out . It sounds terrible. lousy vocal, lousy high frequency, bumpy weak bass. It is not even worth to resale for $20, so I gave it away.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsQuality sound

Pros: This center is perfect for matching my pair of older LS70's sound field, and the transition is seamless. Everything is clear and precise.

Cons: I've seen people comment here on it's size.....yup, it is big....but I compared others and realized that no matter how well engineered.....size does matter...with all the line-ups. Don't place a con here when you know this going in.

Other Thoughts: My whole search for equipment started with finding my pair of Polk LS70's. If you have Polk fronts, don't waste your time looking at other brands....Polk's sound "matches" it's centers. (Now I have a couple "other" highly rated centers to return to friends and a couple to sell.) If you have a room that's dimensions are over 25'x25', spring for the CS20...more oomph and more pronounced highs/same "feel".

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Sound

Pros: Replaced Bose Center channel speaker with this model in Cherry and love it ,the sound is much stronger out of this speaker I was constantlly changing the volume in movies and shows when the scene was all dialoge I had to turn uop the volume to hear whar was said and back down during action scenes .This speaker is just much more powerful than the Bose the two 5 inch speakers plus the tweeter are a perfect combination for the announcers voice during FOOTBALL and the speaker is very attractive.

Cons: None at all.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk CS10

Pros: Great sound/vocals. Handles the power from my Pioneer Elite VSX-32.

Cons: I had to loosen the right 5.25" driver a position it in the factory cut-out. It was tighten off-center.
The other two drivers weren't even tighten in place.

Other Thoughts: The cons are minor, just check the assembly when you buy.
But definitely buy this.
The biggest concern with this purchase is how UPS handled the packaging. Newegg needs to start double boxing their products. The factory packaging arrived scuffed and dented. Luckily nothing was damaged. I have received other UPS deliveries in equally bad shape but some of those were double boxed.

5 out of 5 eggsTremendous value

Pros: - Great Sound. Crisp, clear dialogue, power
- Feels very sturdy, well made
- Looks sharp
- Great value for the price

Cons: Large it is but I knew that before the purchase

Other Thoughts: For 80 bucks with free shipping it's a steal considering the quality. Upgraded in my center channel from a Polk RM6752 and am thrilled with the performance of this speaker. Read lots of reviews before finally buying this center channel and i am not disappointed. Good luck finding this performance for this price
