  • newegg Complete 5.1-Channel Home Theater System The five satellite speakers boast 1/2" silk dome tweeter for crisp, clear imaging and smooth response, together with 2 1/2" long-throw driver with Polk's Dynamic Balance driver technology to produce a flat frequency response, with sharp detail, transparency and the ability to play loud without strain. Housed in a heavy-duty, non-resonant ABS enclosure with elegant satin black finish, the downward firing powered subwoofer features an 8" long-throw Dynamic Balance poly composite driver to produce big, musical bass.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk TL150

Pros: sounds good, but setting the volume to 0 dB can make be too loud and stressing the satellites maybe due to different the limit max w output for channel from the receiver. it was nice deal for me overall.

Cons: small satellites aren't good as bookshelf size. but i think about BOSE make those expensive system with tiny satellites. so i could be wrong.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 5.0 surround for $160 and bought the polk psw10 subwoofer for $79 and a yamaha rx v371 for $149 and this system sounds better than my loigtech z5500 which i used for over 6 years and it still in nice shape and no functional issues. this surround speaker in TL1600 are the TL1 satellite and overall i think they are great. and sounds quality major factor is a receiver. the reason i say this because i send signal from my ftx 670 videocard through hdmi to my receiver and it only show PCM signal on the receiver and cannot be change when listening to music, music are 2 channels. for blu-ray or mkv digital bluray file, you need to use audio filter with mpc-hc player to send out DD and DTS receiver, they say thats bitstreaming.

5 out of 5 eggsNice sound for a smaller room

Pros: Inexpensive ($299.99 on special). Four surrounds and a center, plus a subwoofer. Enough to make a 5.1 surround system. Nice looking speakers.

Cons: As with any small speakers, the lack of woofers makes for a slightly deficient sound. We have these speakers paired with a set of TSi200's to create a 7.1 surround system, and have been extremely pleased with that result, otherwise, it would probably sound a bit off.

Other Thoughts: Unlike other reviewers, have had zero problems with the subwoofer auto-power-on. If anything, it's a bit laggy powering up; it needs a little more volume than I'd care for to be pumped at it to bring it on, but that's really as it should be. Combined with an Aventage receiver and YPAO, we now have excellent sound for our flat panel TV.

4 out of 5 eggsPolk TL1600

Pros: 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 looks. Now the sound, since i already owned one model, cant find much of a difference, in terms of quality. I did call up their tech support, what they told me is its other series like 2600 and higher has a lot better in sound quality. But I some how like the quality of sound that its producing. Although I am staying in a 900sqft appartment, quality of sound may differ when i play it in bigger hall. But for now i can only commnent on what i have and how i feel. I have set it up with Pioneer VSX 519 receiver. Polk recoments using 16gz wire for speaker with 25ft or more of wire length. But I have used 18gz wire only as my speaker stand holes can not accomodate wider wires. I would suggest to go s per the Polk's recomendation.

Cons: 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 am getting a little too much about its size, others may find it ok.

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

5 out of 5 eggsTL1600

Pros: 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 started thinking the bass was kind of wimpy at first but after calibrating and using them for couple months the sound has improved by 100%. Bass is perfect now! I even took 3 out of the 5 surrounds and sub to a friends house for a party and realized how much difference the calibration creates because hey sounded TERRIBLE at his place. (I was too lazy to calibrate them at his house) I got worried until i brought the system back home. The sound came back to life at its home sweet home. I couldnt be happier. Surrounds and center are CRISPY!

Cons: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat!

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

Cons: 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 is still on. After I turn everything off I have to remember to flip the switch to off on the sub.

Other Thoughts: 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 better in a smaller living area.
