Summary: With this I replaced an excellent MK center speaker of less than half the size, but more than twice the cost. The Polk gives a larger and more open sound, probably because of the larger cabinet.
Summary: If you have problems hearing dialog on your Home Theater this will help. Clear strong sound. It is large so make sure you have room for it. If money is not the main issue you may want to look at the A6.
Summary: Although a little on the hefty side, you surely can't go wrong with this offering from Polk Audio. True to their masterful collection of audio products, this center channel speaker does not disappoint. The projected sounds emanating from it's tweeters were clearly audible, even indelible in some instances. It's most striking feature is it's ability to separate and clarify the vocal track(s) of a 7.1 soundtrack to the point of non-detraction.
Summary: Used to be that Polk made only speakers of very high quality, but then it seems they began marketing a cheaper line for the "box stores" rather than the audiophile. Though still far from the quality of Polk 10 monitors, they ARE closer to this than their "box store" junk line. For the money, they are a fine CCS. The highs are crisp and precise, and the lows adequately handled by the pair of drivers. Very nice sound, quality cabinet.
Summary: This is a great sounding center channel speaker. I just wish it wasn't so deep, but it is not a deal breaker. Just a little hard to figure out how to mount if you have you tv mounted and no stand for the speaker.
Summary: This speaker is a very, very good (even great) center channel. It gives clear, true sound, and handles it at all volumes. Is it fair to ding this speaker a star for being so enormous? I think so, because it does ask that you make a tradeoff--in this case, size for sound (and, to some extent, money). The listed dimensions--and all the comments on the dimensions in other reviews--let you know exactly what you are getting. And it is huge. As advertised.
