My first absolutely AWFUL experience that continues.......

Summary: I have been making purchases from Amazon and its sellers for as long as I remember. This is my first time registering a complaint because of a seller. I am sorely disappointed and will strongly warn potential buyers to stay away from this seller. Unfortunately, since this is my first time filing a complaint, though the seller has stated he has returned (credited) my credit card, he has not and I do not know what else to do.
Summary: The reason I give this speaker 4 stars is because of the poor specifications in the instructions manual. When I ordered the CS1 I wasn't sure about its power rarting or impedance. To my surprise, the manual does not mention POWER and only states "compatible" with 8 ohm systems. Well, after sending my amplifier to the "protected stage" (it turned itself off) a couple of times, I decided to verify the impedance and it happens to be a 4 ohm speaker.
Summary: I purchased this center channel from best buy and it provides excellent sound. I bought a DVD of Tom Petty live in concert and when I cranked it up it felt like I was in the front row...absolutely incredible. The vocals come through crystal clear proving an excellent experience. I have this center connected to an Onkyo 607 with TSI 400's as my front speakers. Sound quality is excellent from Polk.
Summary: I'm using this with an Onkyo TR-606 alongside a Toshiba 62" DLP HDTV and a full set of Polk speakers, and the sound quality is remarkable. It also looks nice (though the picture here doesn't make it look that way with the front cover missing) and it fits nicely on a shelf.
Summary: For budget conscious speaker buyers or those who want a more powerful, detailed sound than that delivered by most satellite speaker systems, the Polk Audio entry-level Monitor series speakers are an excellent option. The CS1 is one of two Center channel speakers offered in Polk Audio's entry level Monitor series. The CS2 uses a larger 6.5" diameter woofer, as opposed to the CS1's dual 5.25 woofers. Both use a full size one inch diameter tweeter.
Summary: I bought the cs10 to compliment four owm3 loud speakers and a psw111 subwoofer. Will work for a small to medium room wonderful. In my opinion they work great to fill in some of the mid range the loud speakers were lacking as for voices in movies and also music w/acoustics.
Summary: Upgraded to a Polk CS10 Center Channel Speaker and I have to admit that I have been debating over this speaker which has two 5-inch speakers or the CS2 (which has two 6.5 speaker). But in the end, I decided on the CS10. Right off the box, it was nice and sturdy. Removing the front grill, and it looks absolute beautiful. Upon hooking them up, I noticed the difference in the clarity of audio dialogue.
Summary: I was just putting together a new home theater setup and combined this with a Denon receiver. Let me say that this speaker has beautiful sound, really amazingly crisp and clear. You may have heard people talk about the holographic sound stage, if you have this speaker you will know what they are talking about. I don't regret buying it for one second.
Summary: I have recently upgraded all of my speakers to Polk and have not been let done. This speaker does an amazing job and sounds great. I would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their sound quality.
