Russian term or phrase: тыловики по дизайну
Акустика центрального канала и тыловики по дизайну тоже не оригинальны.

I don't understand it at all.

Back speakers (rear channel speakers) also lack originality in design (fail to impress design-wise)
Explanation:
What you look at here is slang (or colloquialisms) + word order inversions - fairly common in techie/nerdish articles, used to liven these up, make them sound a bit like the real-world.

тыловики is rear channel speakers for 5.1 and higher systems.

You should have tried to parse this phrase into its semantic elements as it is fairly easy to reconstruct its meaning after parsing:

тыловики тоже не оригинальны по дизайну = дизайн тыловиков тоже не оригинален

Had similar problems a long time ago with meaning of English-language phrases - also from techie publications like Byte etc. ...


Good luck!
