No reviews anywhere, I listened to them in the store, they sound like speakers. I am no audiophile, so don't buy these on my recommendation. I hope some of you slick-audiophiles will listen and say 'This is great!'

It was available in store, and looks like its available online too.

The package is pretty impressive though, 5 polk speakers, and 1 huge ass powered sub-woofer.

TL1900
Whether you’re looking for your first home theater sub/sat system or want to upgrade to more performance, you’re in for a big surprise in a small, compact package from Polk®. The TL1900 is an amazingly affordable, professional quality compact home theater system.



Big Speaker Sound Without The Big Speaker
The TL1900 is comprised of comes four high performance TL1900 satellite speakers, a TL1900 center channel speaker and our own specially engineered, compact 50 Watt powered subwoofer, all packaged together. Easy to set up, easy to connect, the TL1900 delivers the excitement of dynamic, thrilling surround sound with deep bass for your movies, games and TV like you’ve never heard them before.

Satellite and Center Channel Features
Time Lens Technology—The acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver are located in the same plane for superior imaging, while the acoustic lens incorporated in the grille smoothes the tweeter’s frequency response. The TL Series creates imaging and frequency balance previously impossible in small, high performance satellite speakers.

Satellite Aperiodic-Tuned rear port enables better blending with a subwoofer. This design combines the bass extension of an acoustic suspension enclosure with the mid-bass boost of a ported enclosure by controlling air flow through the port for better extension without distortion.

Center channel tuned rear port maximizes the low end response of the dual driver design for superior blending with the satellites and the subwoofer.

Curved Enclosure Design employs non-parallel surfaces that not only lead to a stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert enclosure, but they also result in less audible coloration from internal surface resonances.

1/2-inch silk dome tweeters for crisp, clear imaging and smooth response that’s never tiring.

2 1/2-inch Dynamic Balance® long-throw drivers. Polk’s patented transducer design process scientifically tunes materials to produce a flat frequency response, with sharp detail, transparency and the ability to play loud without strain.

5-way binding posts offer hookup versatility and secure connections.

Combination keyhole slot & 1/4-inch x 20 threaded Insert fits all aftermarket ceiling and wall brackets for ultimate flexibility. Or simply hang the speaker securely on a nail or screw using the keyhole slot.

Hi-gloss finish matches today’s most stylish flat panel TV’s.

Powered Subwoofer Features
Heavy-duty, non-resonant MDF enclosures feature an elegant satin black finish that creates the ideal décor accent.

Front firing powered subwoofer. A vented enclosure with an 10-inch long-throw Dynamic Balance poly composite driver. The long driver excursion and excellent linearity produce big, musical bass.

Built-in 50 Watt continuous/100 Watt peak amp with active crossover offers the control you need for real home theater thrills and big, musical, accurate bass.

they had lighting deal today for $199 (RM 705)

not sure why people see TL 1900 as not good, it has somewhat same configuration and mechanics of Tl 1600 and also its much better than RM 705. Well finally all depends on your ears and room size....
I think the reason people are hesitant on the TL1900 is because of a lack of reviews for this system. Besides these are not carried by any major online retailers or by B&M retailers.

I still have to find even 1 decent review for this product.

Thanks to OP


Went to bestbuy and picked up a set. They only had an open box set. Was hesitant at first but we opened it back up and it was all wrapped from the factory still. We hooked it up to a receiver and sounded great.

Got an extra 20% off too so price came to $135 before tax.

Pretty slick deal

I am using this with a Harman AVR 1700 (for which i paid around 180 + Tax) using the Best Buy deal and Amex $20 credit. I really like these speakers. The woofer is so nice .

Quote from Baguda View Post :
The opinion of the customer service rep at Polk was the following (from worst to best):
RM6750
RM85
TL1600
TL1900
TL350

She thought the new technology of the TL line made up for the smaller midrange drivers so it shouldn't sound any worse than the RM models above. She kept recommending the TL350s but there are no deals on those. All I know is the RM85s sound OK for me with the right sub, so the TL1900s should work too in spite of a wimpy sub. I don't blast my movies and this is for a bedroom that is close to 15' x 12' x 9'.

I hope someone can help me understand why it matters what amplifier is driving these tiny speakers. Unless it's a junk amplifier, which I doubt Denon makes, I'd think it would sound the same regardless if it's a Sony, Yamaha, Pioneer, Denon, or Onkyo. To me it would be like saying is gas from Arco going to make my car drive better than gas from Circle K. I don't think you can hear subtle amplifier differences on tiny speakers. If I'm wrong about this, someone please tell me. I'm not an audiophile, but the tiny bits of logic in my brain tell me the speakers are what's important.

how is your experience with the 1900?worship
