Summary: UNBELIEVABLE!!! these are incredible and better priced at Amazon than anywhere else i looked! Versatile and have a great wire hookup. Also the option to swap the pole is perfect to fit all applications.
Summary: I guess I didn't know what I was missing until I installed the Polk speakers. The sound is top shelf! I use them as surround speakers and they are set to dipole. The challenge now is to get a receiver that can push these speakers to operate optimally in your environment. I had to return a Denon 105 watt per channel receiver because the amp could not push the Polk's, nor the Bang and Olufson fronts. The amp would heat up and shut down at 60% volume.
Summary: They seem to be great. Handle surround perfectly. Easy to mount and versatile. If I had a negative it would be the ability to reproduce music at higher volumes. They act "small" and the A6's might do a better job. However still very pleased for what I ask them to do.
Summary: i was looking to upgrade from a borroewd pair of mb quarts and exhausted every review of every affordable rear channel speaker on the planet. (gotta make sure i make the right decision) since i don't have money to throw around i narrowed it down to 2. my system consist of a yamaha rxv 477 5.1 receiver. a pair of polk monitor series 2 70's and the mb quarts for the rears. i don't use a center channel speaker because my fronts are only 6 ft. apart.
Pros: clean, accurate sound, great cabinet finish. great for movies or music
