Summary: I have two home theater setups, one with large Polk Audio speakers I chose and one with a Bose Acoustimass 10 that came with the house. I found my aging ears had much less trouble hearing dialogue from the Polk system, so I bought this center speaker to use with the Bose setup. Now I don't have to ask "What did they say?" nearly as often, and I don't need the volume as high. That's the pro. The con? I will probably end up replacing the remaining Bose speakers with Polk.
Summary: Bought Polk TSi CS10 for my center channel. This box is doing the job and handles the speaking portion of the theater system. Sounds clear and is matched up with my Denon AVR-1911 as the driver. Good buy for the $$.
Summary: Just replaced an older and smaller center channel with the CS10 Center Channel and it sounds great. Can't get over the $100.00 value on this center for my application (secondary surround system in master bedroom). My older center channel lacked bass and was set up as a small speaker. When I config CS10, i used large setting, (small is reccomended by polk).
Summary: Purchased with Sony A/V 5.1 receiver to augment Sony Bravia TV. Rather than purchase a center-bar speaker that has the same puny sound as the TV itself this set-up gives full, rich sound to my video set-up.
Summary: Paid $79.99. Price was a factor but so were reviews. Very good sound. Enclosure kind of big but gives you good sound. Sounds great with blue-ray DVD. Would buy more POLK brand. Good value. No Cons.
Summary: I purchased this center speaker for my "value-priced" home theater system. It perfectly complements the Polk Audio in-wall front speakers ( Polk Audio RC65i 2-Way In-Wall Speakers (Pair, White) ), and in-ceiling surrounds ( Polk Audio RC80i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair, White) ). While I'm at it, they're all connected to an Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black) along with a BIC V1020 10" Down-Firing Powered Subwoofer .
Summary: Just hooked this up a couple of hours ago and this thing sounds amazing right out of the box.The cherry finish is beautiful and it looks great on top of my tv.I know they say speakers have to be broken in so I guesss I'm in for a real treat as it already sounds great.
Summary: This two-way center channel provides enough sound quality even though it lacks a dedicated mid range driver. Polk delivers exceptional sound with this center channel that will rival $300 and up center channels from other vendors. The Polk Audio TSi CS10 recommends 20 to 150 watts of amplifier power for the best audio quality.
