Summary: After years of buying small cheap speakers I discovered the importance of a quality center channel speaker. Said to be the most important speaker and I couldn't agree more. For anyone with young kids do you find yourself turning up the volume to hear dialogue and then turning it down during action...
Pros: Cheap...as in price, Quality Name, Great look, Sounds Awesome!
Summary: Let me say up front that I do not have a high end sound system. While my receiver is capable of 7.1, I have only been using it as a 2.1 for years. I recently moved to a new location and the room is much bigger with 10ft ceilings.
Pros: Low cost with big results. Easy to set up and adds significantly to the overall sound.
Summary: After having operated the CS10 for more than a month I can say without equivocation that this center speaker operates very well indeed. What I was seeking was clarity of voice and that's what i got. This Polk lives up to the reputation of the manufacturer.
Pros: The ability to flip the speaker over to elevate the sound field was a great idea.
Summary: very good speaker for the money. I have it on the wall in the garage above the tv. even in a 30 x 44 building it has good bass and even sound. ordering was easy and shipping was faster than expected.
Pros: very good quality solidly built. great sound even with minimal wattage receiver. nice looking finish
Cons: this speaker is meant to sit on a tv stand or shelf. there is no mounting hardware. like I said mine is mounted on the wall above the tv, so I had to fabricate a mounting bracket.
Summary: I purchased the Polk CS10 Center Channel speaker in order to give my front sound stage a boost and I am completely satisfied. It looks and sounds terrific with the rest of my surround system. I have a Yamaha Receiver, four Polk satellites and two Boston Acoustic Subs.
Pros: Professional Polk Sound. Sleek and gorgeous look and feel. Clean crisp movie dialog.
Cons: It is big! Not a con for me really but I have a dedicated theater room. If you got the space for a large center channel this is the one!
Summary: Was deciding between this and Boston Acoustics and chose this based on price and the fact we had Polk Audio home theatre speakers in our last house and liked them a lot. Very happy with our purchase.
Pros: Excellent clarity; great price; looks great with our decor.
