Very good for the money, voices are a bit washed out at low volume.
25 March 2015
Summary: Other reviewers have noted that this speaker sounds a bit muddy for voices. I tend to agree at lower volumes, but at full volume it is very clear and pristine. There are some issues with my setup that are probably making this worse; I have a cavernous entertainment center that this sits in which...
Summary: Bumped along without a center channel for years, and jumped at the chance to get a good center speaker when these came on sale. Having the center channel really cleans up the imaging and "surround-ness" of the sound.
Pros: A "big" speaker that fits in my center console! clean, smooth, not harsh or boomy. Low end extends below 80 Hz - helps keep dialogue out of the sub. Very good for the price.
Summary: This center speaker can "make" your set up, just go in with some basic knowledge; it's great for a small to medium sized room, it can use extra power to enhance the overall sound stage, should be paired up with same make and series.
Pros: Very nice looking speaker in person. Has a real nice sound.
Summary: Overall this is a very good center speaker. I purchased this speaker with the intent of replacing a 10 y/o Infinity center. The infinity was pretty decent, and the midrange was slightly more natural than that of the Polk.
Pros: Trebble, skinnier than other full size centers.
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. good stuff
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: Bought this for my first home theater along with POLK towers. Fetched polk bookshelf surround from ebay on deal. All r connected to Yamaha receiver & polk PSW111 woofer. Everything going well. For the price one of the best center speakers.
Pros: Afordable. Nice quality.
Cons: Expected a little more from Polk brand for this one.
Summary: nice speakers. good smooth sound with no distortion from a 80wpc amp. Im receiving the yamaha aventage rx a740 tomorrow and im sure theyll sound even better with the yamaha. shipping timing was great and the people at crutchfield are very helpful with not trying to sell what i dont need.
Pros: good smooth sound, no distortion. great build and the piano black top looks great
