Pros: This speaker was an upgrade from a plastic "theater in a box" type speaker. I have it running off an Onkyo 5.1. At first I wanted a Klipche center and mains, but I bought this instead when it was on sale. Now I've decided to buy a matching set of Polks for my mains because I'm so happy with the n...
Cons: Very BIG. I had to set my TV atop a pair of 2x4s to get it over the top of the speaker. Kinda ghetto looking, but it does the job, and it's temporary.
Summary: I recently decided to downgrade a 12 year old 5.1 floor-standing speaker system to a smaller 3.1 bookshelf system that would take up less space in my TV room. I ordered the CS10 to replace a Klipsch Reference RC3-II.
Summary: This center channel has far exceeded the relatively low price tag. No matter how loud the mains and how deep the bass goes on my HT system the voices are crystal clear. This center channel also handles some of the lows in my HT system.
Pros: sound is amazing, finish is superb.
Cons: if you don't plan for it the size may become a hassle.
Summary: For well under $100, you get good polk sound. Just make sure to check the dimensions.
Pros: Crisp, clear sound. A step up from an Onkyo HTIB center speaker, which I would have to turn the center channel way up on my receiver to hear whispers and other quite noises. Not anymore.
Cons: LARGE. I had to remove the back panel on my entertainment center to fit it into the shelf under my t.v. Even though I measured it prior to ordering, it was about 1/8" too tall to slide in the front.
