Summary: Crisp clean sound delivered in an attractive and compact package (cherry finish) that will enhamce your decor without dominating avaialble space in your room. These speakers along with a Polk PSW505 subwoofer turned my garage into a man cave. Classic rock along with my classic cars never sounded or looked as good. An excellent purchase decision at a price that didn't break the bank!
Summary: I had experience with many speakers from different brand names. Monitor 50 from Polk Audio are pretty good for movies, I'm sure they designed for movies, powerful enough with good bass, decent middle range and acceptable highs. If you need more bass you can just add subwoofer. But for music-I wouldn't recommend these speakers. Of course,depends what kind of music you are listening.
