Summary: I have had this speaker for around a year now and I have got to say it is awesome! That said, I can relate to the issues and difficulties that others are experiencing and it took me a bit of time and a call to Polk support to get to where I can state this is an excellent product if it can be setup...
Summary: I don't know what I did different than some of the reviews here... but this system is just absolutely wonderful!!! Sounds incredible!!! using this as the 2 rear channels for my 5.1 system in my home theater. I didn't want to have mess with running wires all they way to the back of the room.
Summary: So, I read all the past reviews on this product and with the mixed reviews I ordered one to see if the Series II overcame the issues that seemed to plaque the Series I(connectivity, popping sound, wifi issues.). I've been running it for a week now and it's been perfect.
Summary: The product works great for what it does. Does not take the place of wired separate channels , but I am happy with the results. Just make sure you get the newer improved model. The first gen of these were not as good.
Summary: I Currently own the Rocketfish rear wireless kit, decent..but dislike the setup (two speakers to one transmitter) and low wattage. I've researched thoroughly and it amazes me there are very few options for this type of setup.
Summary: So far a great improvement over the Sony HTIB IR wireless surrounds we've been using for years. It took a while to tweak the volume levels for the rear channels before the Polk unit sounded OK, but just right when I finally set them at -3.5 dB below the front speakers.
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.
