As a part of the excellent T Series of the Polk Audio line, these speakers are built for versatility in sound. You can hook these speakers up to an existing home theater system, use them as music speakers, or other type of theater system.

Features

Polk Audio’s Dynamic Balance (D.B) drivers and tweeters offer beautifully low distortion for a crisp and clear sound through wide dispersion. These pair of speakers are sonically matched and are designed to work in a synergistic manner with each other.

Each performs a special function in this integrated speaker system in order to give the user a balanced response. The way the T15 reduces distortion is via magnetically shielded enclosures.

This means that nearby video sources and other electronics will not affect the T15. This magnetic shielding offers superior clarity for music or as a home theater unit.

The Sensitivity provided by the T15 is impressive: 89 (dB) decibels 5-1/4 inches. The D.B. technology uses a polymer composite to make up the Woofer.

A durable rubber surround is used and a 3/4 inch D.B. Tweeter uses a composite of polymer and silk. The Tweeter contains a magnet of neodymium, which delivers a balanced, lush soundscape of sound.

These versatile speakers are great for both music and home theater and are designed to be placed on entertainment and book shelves, as well as supporting options for mounting.

If you are looking for a concert quality speaker with nice high and lows as well as a decent lows for the price, theT15 is perfect for you.

The Silk Dome Tweeter is 0.75 inch in size with a 5.25-inch driver (composite) and a well-tuned front-firing low bass port. These were engineered with Polk’s proprietary D.B. technology. You can hear brighter highs, a wide open mid-range, and decent low bass quality.

This furniture-grade MDP cabinet construction reduces resonance and distortion. This means that you receive rich and detailed audio, minus rattling disruption or muffled noise that is inherent in low quality equipment. However, note that if you play these speakers too loudly, a rattling is possible, so use your judgment.

The T15 supports DTS and Dolby and connects to most theater receivers, stereos, and home theater processors. In addition, the T15 contains slots so the user can mount these pair to the wall.
