If you build it...
You want to feel the impact of your music or movie soundtracks, and the only way to experience that impact is to listen to a loudspeaker that can really belt out a realistic reproduction of your media. Whether its MP3 digital, DVD or CD, or even warm vinyl, the new TSx220B Bookshelf Loudspeaker can handle it with aplomb. That’s because it features incredible audio technology, state-of-the-art materials and superior enclosure design. Build a system, or enhance your current system, with the convenience and performance of a bookshelf-style loudspeaker.
TSx Series bi-laminate composite driver cones, tuned perfectly with our Dynamic Balance® process, produce smooth, natural sound. They are lightweight, but super stiff, with exceptional damping, for high efficiency and low distortion.
Unlike horns or metal domes, silk/polymer dome tweeters deliver clear and detailed highs, without fatigue, even at high volume, and reveal more realistic vocal reproduction.
Front-firing tuned port smooths low frequency blending, for surprisingly full-bodied deep bass response from a bookshelf loudspeaker.
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 of the TSx Series works well with practically any electronics, even the most modestly-powered amplifier or receiver, delivering a performance that’s spacious and clear, natural and realistic.
Our high performance crossover system boosts performance with the kind of premium components (like mylar bypass capacitors, which reveal extended high frequency details) usually found on much more expensive loudspeakers.
Gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts, for the most secure connection options.
Unique new curved enclosure design in non-resonant MDF creates a rigid, acoustically inert space, with non-parallel curved side panels that effectively reduce audible coloration.
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.

Exceptionally detailed and smooth highs. Impressive lows
Only that it slightly has slightly less midrange presence than a 3-way loudspeaker.
These are exceptionally well made speakers. Especially for only $300. First off they are very large for bookshelf speakers which allows them to pack a punch. The silk dome tweeters are capable of producing extremely detailed high sounds smoothly. I can honestly say these have the best bass response I've heard on bookshelf speakers so far. The port operates clean without chuffing. Personally I always thought that 3 way speakers gave the midrange a certain presence that 2 way speakers just can't quite reproduce, however I think these speakers still do fine with midrange.

amazing tweeters, large-scale bookshelf speaker, great bass, amazing value
Takes up a lot of space on an actual shelf
These are truly amazing speakers. The silk dome tweeters deliver the most detailed treble you can get for the money. The mid range sounds great for a two way speaker and the bass is incredible for a bookshelf. Highly recommended.
