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: WOW! The CS10 replaced a Pioneer SP-C21 which, on paper should be comparable or at least in the same ballpark. They both have 2- 5.25"s and a tweeter, but the Polk really brought out the dialogue in movies and is SOOO much crisper than the Pioneer. The CS10 is more efficient at 91db which is very noticeable. What a bargain at this price. I paid more for the Pioneer, and what great service and speed of delivery from you guys at Crutchfield.
Pros: Great center at a very affordable price with great service.
