Summary: Very clear sound, blends perfect with polk RTI10 towers and polk 70RT surrounds and 70RT front high channels for home theater. Set at 80hz crossover. Compared to the polk monitor series center channel and towers that I own and use in game room, there is a very noticeable difference in sound quality. CSI a3 sounds better than cs1 speaker.
Summary: I'm one of those folks that can't afford truly high-end audio gear, buit I love the home theater experience. I'd used my Bose VCS-10 for years without ever really considering an upgrade. Even though I'd upgraded all of my peripheral speakers and sub, for some reason, I held on to the ancient Bose center. So, I find the CSi3 on sale ($100) and it's too tempting to ignore. Simply put, how the heck had I put this off for so long?
I would suggest this speaker to anyone who enjoys crystal clear music

Summary: it sounds amazing the technology mathew polk incorparates in his speakers are surpassed by none and the price i got the speaker for was unbelievable an incredible speaker at an incredible price.......enough said!
Summary: I had this speaker before and loved it. I ordered this for a friend and he loves it as well. Polk Audio builds some excellent quality speakers for a fair price. I recommend these for any low to mid range theater setup.
Summary: Bought this speaker recently to finally piece together a decent home theater for my place, and I was amazed with the value it offers. For less than a CS10 (Polk's budget offering) locally, you can pick up this speaker that was once Polk's second best home theater center. The deal is that this is a 2005-2007 model, and amazingly there is still some around at clearance prices even in late 2010. I received mine new in box, and it works and looks perfectly.
Summary: Got this baby for a great price and am very happy with it. I got it to voice match a set of rti4's that I picked up which I also love. Polk makes some great speakers, and Amazon has some great prices on them if you can be patient and wait for the right deal.
Summary: PROs: Brilliant sound. Fills out the front sound stage exceptionally well. Vocal clarity is top notch. I have found in my ownership of this speaker (since 2008!) that it is very versatile and pairs with most mid to high end speakers surprisingly well. Construction feels solid and the speaker has a good heft to it without being overly heavy.
