Summary: My old Optimus from Radio Shack was shot. I think I paid $100 for it. After searching around on the net, I ran into Polk Audio. I was familiar with the name and the sound quality. I was limited with space (width) due to my cabinet that I made. This one would fit, and the price was good too. I would recommend it.
Summary: Several years ago, when I first purchased my first big-screen HDTV, I purchased an Infinity center-channel speaker and an Infinity self-powered sub to go along with my Energy front and rear speakers. I loved everything about my speakers except that I felt my center-channel was a little weak. Finally I was brave enough to buy a new center speaker, and I chose the Polk CS10 online for $99 (wow, what a buy!). This speaker is VERY good.
Summary: Pros: Clear, bright sounds, with ample power Cons: Difficult to place above certain televisions Before purchasing this, I had a dinky small center channel speaker from a home-theatre-in-a-box set from 5 years ago. My side speakers had been upgraded, but when Surround Sound movies or TV shows played, the sound of voices (typically sent to the center channel) seemed muted and dull.
Summary: This center channel is very nice IMO. The size of the speaker itself is BIG. I have read from other reviews, that it is a big center channel but really didn't know until i took it out of the box. The cherry color on the picture was not too appealing, but seeing it in person, it is VERY NICE. I am currently upgrading from an "In Box" setup, and this speaker is a very nice speaker for the price by all means.
Summary: The size,quality of sound and finish make this speaker a best buy. I installed it on top of a big screen HD Tv with a separate shelf and wow the sound is great. The black grilles blend into the scenery along with the black sides of it. Great little speaker with big boy sound. I also have bose speakers on the same system and hard to tell which one is better. I know which one cost more and it wasn't the polk speaker.
Summary: I'm on a limited budget and I can't spend hundreds of dollars on a center speaker right now. Although the Polk CS10 is low-end, it's a quality center speaker. It's crisp, very clear, beautifully made and professional looking. I'm upgrading my system and this speaker is a welcome addition. This is a pretty big speaker. It's three times bigger than the Sony center speaker that I own and sounds a whole lot better too.
Summary: this product is one of best investments I have made for my home theater. the sound output is incredible. no need to go watch movies at the theater when you can experience the awesome sound quality in the comfort of your own home. these speakers are worth the price. you can't go wrong with polk audio.
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy to Mount, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Product was received in good condition. This was a replacement for a borrowed center speaker. Plugged the new speaker in and instant sound. Sound quality extremely good. The outer case blended in perfectly with other Polk speakers in my system.
