About the Product
The Polk Audio TSi400 floorstanding speaker is the midrange tower speaker in the TSi series with three 5.25-inch woofers resulting in higher power handling and more bass capacity. It's great for high impact movies and music. Its affordable price and small footprint means they can be used as the front channels in a home theater system or as the main speakers in a music system.
The name Monitor is special to Polk. The original Polk Monitor Series, produced in the mid-1970s, ushered in the modern loudspeaker era by setting the standard for performance and value. The original Monitor Series is the line that made Polk famous with its simple, sturdy construction, clear, accurate sound, powerful bass and superior imaging all at a price that made great sound available to everyone. The reborn Monitor Series is classic Polk: a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. They are highly efficient, so they can be driven easily by unpretentious receivers, and they are voice matched for lifelike surround sound environments. The Monitor Series boasts a stylish look that complements today's flat screen technology, with wood grain finishes and modern Titanium faces. Built for speed, sound and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Polk Audio TSi400 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
  • The cabinet finish is flawless - typical of Polk. Give them a try - I think you'll be impressed with how good a modestly priced speaker can sound.
  • They are extremely beautiful to look at. They have shiny, black plastic tops that have a mirror-like finish. As a piece of furniture, they are first-class.
  • The shape of these speakers is a rectangular prism measuring seven inches wide, fourteen deep and standing thirty-eight and three-quarters tall. They come in two colors, black and cherry. These speakers are very handsome with a black textured surface on the sides with a glassy solid top.
  • The room where they are installed is approximately 15 by 20 feet with several pieces of upholstered furniture.. My first impression when listening to these speakers was that there was more music.
  • Excellent projection. Very attractive and we didn't have to cut a hole in the wall. Nice size too. Don't need to worry about tipping (good weight). Would definitely recommend.

  • The towers are the perfect size.
  • Very solidly built, as are all of Polk products.

What customers say about "Audio"
Polk Audio TSi400 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
  • A lot of speaker for the dollar. I like the natural sound - no heavy bass or excessively brilliant highs.
  • The Polk TSi400s are very efficient - this is especially important for those of us with relatively low powered vacuum tube amplifiers. A 30W amplifier will do nicely with these speakers in an average sized room.
  • I've driven them with an older Harman Kardon amp and a newer SMSL amp without any problems.
  • The TSi400 have a one inch tweeter and three five and one-quarter inch mid range/woofers. To my ear, the sound produced was clear and crisp at all ranges.
  • One common complaint of tower speakers is that they require a high power level. The A-V receiver has a rating of 95 watts per channel. This was adequate to create a comfortable listening level using only 20 to 30 percent of power.
  • The overall sound is dead. It is too dry and has no resonance.
Polk Audio Monitor 60 Series II Floorstanding Speaker
  • The Polk Monitor series is very impressive, lots of high quality sound at a price a regular working man can afford.
  • Awesome, detailed reproduction of midrange sounds, at a price a working class like me can afford. Doubles the joy of listening music and soundtracks. Love it.
  • These speakers are great sounding in the highs and mid frequencies, bass is just ok. Subwoofer is a must if these are your main speakers to get a good soundstage.
  • Bass impact is not that great while watching movies, it is not different then Polk Audio Monitor-30 Bookshelf Speakers and can't use it as stand alone floor speakers as well.
  • These speakers have a very clear sound in mid & bass but the bass has no punch what so ever a pair of boom box speakers would project better the tweeters are more harsh than crisp & lose all clarity even at low low volume when listening to alot of music

What customers say about "Features"
Polk Audio TSi400 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Black)
  • No grit my teeth steely overtones common to many much more expensive speakers. Very clear voices for choral music too. Just enough bass to matter. - these are not speakers for heavy metal blastophiles.
  • These speakers are perfect for the baroque period of classical music I enjoy. Violins and other bowed string instruments sound like they should (with a good quality recording).
  • I bought a pair of these in late 2013 (when they were priced nearly twice what they are now), and since then, I have been nothing but impressed with them. The sound is awesome, from low-level, morning jazz sounds to full-on cranked 70's rock, and they look great in my living room.
  • The Polk Audio TSi400 is an excellent tower speaker at a very reasonable price which can be used without depending on a sub-woofer. They fit comfortably into small and medium sized rooms and provide a quality listening experience.
  • I'm using these as part of a 5.1 surround system and also for regular music listening. Love them, would buy again.
  • The speakers do not have a bass port. Whether this has any impact on the bass sound they produce is unknown.
Polk Audio Monitor 60 Series II Floorstanding Speaker
  • Quality of the sound holds up from barely audible to loud enough and clear enough to hear anywhere in the house (this feature is not appreciated by everybody).
  • Aesthetic features is amazing and the removable grill adds more to the speaker itself.
  • Sound quality is amazing. after connecting to my Yamaha receiver it sounded heavenly.
  • A great bang for the buck plus they look great with or without the grill
  • These loudspeakers also work well as front mains of a home theater setup when paired with a subwoofer, a good center, surrounds, and a receiver that can belt out some current.
