    Inexpensive speakers are virtually impossible to impress Jeff, that should tell everyone plenty about how good the TL2's are.

    That is a very impressive review. May have to recommend these to some family members.

    Very solid review, I recommended these to a friend, but he has pulled the plug on his first HT system for now. Wonder how they would fare on the patio as a budget sound system?

    They really are awesome speakers. Can't even imagine what the TL3s would bring to the table :)

    Impressive review but did anybody notice that he got the spec's wrong. He writes that the TL2 has a 1/2' tweeter but it's 3/4'. The TL1 has 1/2' tweets.

    Will be interesting to check these and the TL3's when they are out.

    Noticed that too. The TL3 has the same size for both drivers as the TL2 but goes lower and much higher thanks to the ring radiator tweet.

    That review made me more saddened that I didn't win that Polk contest last Christmas. I just can't afford a pair right now, but darn, 200.00 does come and go around here quite often.

    This is another set that will be in my collection for sure!

    I can't wait to hear them in person one day.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?
