The Cons. The Polk Audio T15s are good at the highs and midrange, but lack in sub-bass and lower-end frequency response. They work well with the addition of a dedicated subwoofer to the system.
The Polk Audio T15s deliver crystal clear sound performance with crisp highs, detailed midranges and deep bass response. With Acoustically-inert, furniture-grade MDF, the speaker is capable of producing solid sound with clearer details and reduces resonance and distortion. We liked the fact that you can easily crank up the volume on the T15s to maximum without hearing any distortion from the upper frequency ranges. The T15 has bright highs, wide-open mid-ranges and even a surprising bass response, giving a good kick for instrumental and vocal music genres. The T15 also has no difficulty working together with other speakers in a surround sound system. It works great with giving a great surround sound system in a medium sized room as frontal or dialogue speakers. The bass that comes with the T15 is decent but not overwhelming – it’s a 2.0 system that requires an additional subwoofer to supplement the lower frequency ranges.
Design & Build Quality
The Polk Audio T15 is well-constructed and build to last for a long time. The cabinet box is made of acoustically-inert, furniture grade MDF which helps to reduce resonance and distortion. The designers of the T15 have also thought about the various setups of this system, and sonically matched the speakers to work in a synergistic manner with balanced response across all speakers. The T15 can also be placed upright against the wall for better bass resonance, thanks to the design being compact and front ported. The magnetically shielded enclosures also help to prevent any static interference when the speakers are placed near audio cables or wiring. The speakers look really sleek with the solid MDF enclosure and blend in nicely with modern home interior décor.
