Summary: Once again, so impressed with Polk Audio & Crutchfield. Absolutely Love this center channel. Finally able to upgrade from an older Optimus center & now paired with my Polk TSi 100's and Denon receiver this speaker has brought new life to movies & music. Feel like I need to watch all my favorites again just to enjoy this new addition. Thanks again Polk and Crutchfield.
Pros: Beautiful build quality. Heavy. Feels solid and well made. Looks like it is more expensive than it is.
Summary: Upgraded from a cheaper, way smaller center speaker to this Polk and the improvement in the clarity of dialogue is incredible. If the other 4 small speakers were larger, I could really take advantage of the dynamic range and frequency range by telling the amp to use a lower frequency cutoff without destroying the other 4 that I have. Can't beat it for the price, and I looked long and hard. Buy it.
Pros: sound quality, price, looks
Cons: It's large, had to lift the TV to keep it from blocking the remote control sensor. It's heavy, be careful trying to hang it off a shelf, whether on the wall or the TV
Summary: The speaker was far too large to use where I had intended. I had thought of placing it in front of the TV or hand on the wall above the TV. It was huge and blocked the TV when in front of it and too heavy for a hanging speaker.
Summary: After years of buying small cheap speakers I discovered the importance of a quality center channel speaker. Said to be the most important speaker and I couldn't agree more. For anyone with young kids do you find yourself turning up the volume to hear dialogue and then turning it down during action scenes? I figured this was part of watching a movie when you had kids...then I purchase this speaker and the world of TV\Movie watching has been changed forever.
Pros: Cheap...as in price, Quality Name, Great look, Sounds Awesome!
