Polk Audio T50 Home Theater and Music Floor Standing Tower Speaker Review

Polk Audio T50 Home Theater and Music Floor Standing Tower Speaker Review

Unlike in the past, most shoppers today are looking for increasingly smaller and stylish home theater systems which are capable of quenching their music needs.

However, there has been a major problem when it comes to the quality of sounds delivered. While large speakers are known for producing high-quality sounds, smaller speakers are unable to meet this basic need, making them the second option for most music enthusiasts.

Polk has joined the music race to manufacture some of the smallest, sleekest, detailed and high-performing speakers on the market today. Among the best home theater systems they’ve delivered in 2016 is the Polk Audio T50 Home Theater.

Designed with state-of-the-art technology, this home theater system comes with an exclusive instant classic loudspeaker series that includes two floor-standing tower speakers, a center channel speaker, and two powerful bookshelf speakers. This home theater system is designed with powerful T-series speakers which are easy to set up and operate.

Each speaker comes with a 6.5” sub-bass radiator that’s capable of delivering dynamic bass at the lowest frequencies. With the ability to incorporate the dynamic-balance technology into their systems, the Polk Audio T50 Home Theater is one of the best on the market.

Features

  • Design—The Polk Audio T50 Home Theater is designed with the latest technology which delivers high-quality surround-sound music at the comfort of your living room. The entire audio system is designed with 2” × ¾” and 3” × 1” dome tweeters for highs, 4” × 5¼” and 2” × 6½” mid-woofers, 4” × 6½” bass radiators and finally a 1” × 10” sub-woofer
  • Technology—To ensure that the entire system is perfectly powered up, Polk has employed the latest dynamic-balance technology to ensure that all the speakers get a massive boost, even at the lowest frequencies
  • Easy to set up—One advantage that comes with the Polk Audio T50 Home Theater speakers is their easy setup. Unlike other speakers, the Polk Audio T50 speakers are light, solid and very easy to set up in the living room

Pros

  • The Polk Audio T50 Home Theater comes with a light weight of just 20.4 pounds making it very inexpensive to ship, and also easy to set up
  • Most customers have praised the quality of sound delivered by these speakers stating that it’s one of a kind
  • These speakers are designed with sleek dimensions that make them perfect for both large and small rooms.
  • The price of these speakers is pocket friendly, making them readily available for all customers.

Cons

  • One drawback with the Polk Audio T50 Home Theater speakers is that they’re only available in a black vinyl coated color
  • These speakers have passive radiators meaning the bass is not actively powered. This makes the bass stay low and basic as compared to other speakers
  • To ensure that you enjoy powerful bass sounds, you’ll have to spend more money to buy a separate sub-woofer
  • The quality of sound delivered by this home theater is not inspiring compared to the Pioneer SP-PK52FS which costs the same amount

Summary

The Polk Audio T50 Home Theater Floor Standing Speaker is one of the best options for customers looking for a less-expensive alternative. The quality of sound delivered by this speaker is outstanding and the use of dynamic-balance technology makes it even better.

However, for customers looking for a higher performing home theater at a similar price, we would recommend the Pioneer SP-PK52FS.
