Big Size with Great Sound, Better to Pair with other Polk Audio Speakers
GO FOR IT, Amazon

Summary: Although I'm aware of the dimension of this center channel speaker, I still got shocked when I unpacked the package. It is a huge unit and I'm really glad I didn't choose the even bigger CS2 (even if it should sound better). First of all, you have to make sure you have the room for a solid 7 inch high box. I replaced the center of my Energy Take Classic 5.1 with this CS1. The first impression is disappointing.
Summary: This is a heavyweight audiophile quality speaker that replaces a skimpy, weak sounding center channel speaker purchased several years ago from a "big box" store. By using my Radio Shack sound level meter, I am now able to bring the Polk Cs10 to a comparable level with my main L-R speakers. I have finally achieved the richness of 5+1 surround sound and the benefit of intelligibility from my system.
Summary: This product was my choice after reading myriad reviews on competing speakers. I am happy the reviews steered me here. It has great performance and balances well with the other components in my system.

Summary: My old Infinity center channel speaker was giving me fits...(I thought my hearing was getting bad). I found the foam suspension had deteriorated. I found this Polk CS10 and reviewed the specs and read the reviews. Normally, I would not buy a speaker without hearing it first...but in this case, I love it and can hear various movies without replaying to understand what was said. Great speaker for the price!
Summary: I have owned many companies including the expensive klipsch reference series speakers. I bought this CS1 for the 4th time. Y? Because every time I buy other speakers that are supposed to be better, I somehow miss the SOFTNESS of these speakers. They don't sound like a loud speaker or a loud horn. They sound very soft, smooth and fulfilling. The monitor series for me has always been a great buy because u get great quality for the price.
Summary: I have a very nice Yamaha receiver, two Yamaha subs and the usual small satellite speakers, but there was something not right, so after doing some reading I decided it was the centre speaker, I read so many 5 star reviews on this CS10 unit I went what the heck, and got it, yes its big, but oh boy the clarity of movies and music, I now feel solid base thuds not warbles and reverberations, its like I replaced the whole system, best money I have spent in a long time, and if...
Summary: Used in a medium sized chapel for A/V presentations. The sound is good. Because of its size, the speaker can be located in front of the screen and then returned to the A/V cart for transportation. The speaker has good weight and is nicely finished.
