Summary: What everyone else is saying in the reviews about this center speaker is exactly true! If you have problems hearing dialog at low volumes like I did in your HT, add this puppy and your problem is solved. Sounds nice and clear, Great speaker and I am completely satisfied!
Pros: It let me finally hear dialog at low volumes instead of constantly adjusting volume from loud to low during action scenes, trying not to wake up my 2 year old

Summary: My old Infinity center channel speaker was giving me fits...(I thought my hearing was getting bad). I found the foam suspension had deteriorated. I found this Polk CS10 and reviewed the specs and read the reviews. Normally, I would not buy a speaker without hearing it first...but in this case, I love it and can hear various movies without replaying to understand what was said. Great speaker for the price!
Summary: I have owned many companies including the expensive klipsch reference series speakers. I bought this CS1 for the 4th time. Y? Because every time I buy other speakers that are supposed to be better, I somehow miss the SOFTNESS of these speakers. They don't sound like a loud speaker or a loud horn. They sound very soft, smooth and fulfilling. The monitor series for me has always been a great buy because u get great quality for the price.
