Sort of gets the job done

Summary: When it's not popping and staticy, it sounds great. I took a gamble on this product after reading and equal amount of good and bad product reviews but unfortunately, I got the dreaded popping issue that so many speak of . Polk could have done a better job designing this product
Summary: Estoy muy contento con esta compra, artículo nuevo, en perfecto estado. Mi sistema de teatro casero, suena increíble para mirar películas! Muchas gracias al vendedor y lo recomiendo 100% positivo!!!
Summary: Works well as a surround sound speaker and definitely gets the wires out of the way. I have had some service issues with this unit. The issue is the unit will make a loud wailing sound when the transmitter that is connected to the receiver shuts down. I sent it back once but it still does this.
Summary: I chose this unit to add to my Denon receiver to give me 7.1 surround levels when I relocated my home theater into a new location. This unit enabled me to add another pair of speakers at the very back of the listening area without adding additional wiring, which was a problem in my new location.
Summary: This unit doesn't provide the rear sound separation that I had hoped for. in addition the signal from the transmitter is frequently interupted causing a loud craking sound from the speakers. There may be better solutions.
Obvious past issues, should have paid attention to the reviews!

Summary: Easy set up, seemed to be working, started having issues, began tech support conversations, sent me replacement parts (2 parts which in essence replaced the whole thing), and it still won't work! Now 3 weeks past the return window I can't return it and I wasted $150.
Summary: I really wanted this speaker to work out, it had the potential to be great but has too many flaws for home theater use. Speaker when idle emits a constant hiss, when the speaker goes into standby or wakes up from standby you get a loud double popping noise.
The solution if the traditional speaker set up isn't an option

Summary: This is an amazing speaker. It really gives the function of rear speakers without the expense and difficulty of wring tradition rears. If the traditional surround sound solution is difficult to install this is the answer.
Solid wireless speaker considering the alternatives

Summary: With the choices of wireless speakers out there being limited, this speaker is actually not a bad product at all. I would not recommend using it for any other purpose than a rear and/or back surround speakers.
Summary: When placed behind viewing area it has loud white noise coming out of it, so is gets pretty obnoxious hearing a steady fuzz noise the whole time. This is with the latest model, not the first model.
