Good

John W., Newegg

  • Summary: Neweggg seems to have the best prices on these Polk speakers.
  • Pros: Excellent sound. Much better than old Bose 301 speakers they replaced. $100 is a great price for these. Later bought CS2 for center and might regret not going up to Monitor70s which might have been a better match for CS2. However the Monitor70s while likely a little better are close to twice the ...
  • Cons: Monitor70?

  • Summary: Great speakers for the price. A low end 5.1 AV tuner requires a subwoofer for bass when listening to music. A vintage Pioneer SA-1050 drives these things great- superb tight, thumping bass with acceptable mids and crisp treble. I wired a Niles DPS-1 and switch between the two for music and movies.
  • Pros: Tight and crisp.
  • Cons: Sound way better when driven hard. Not a con, needed to type something in here.

  • Pros: Not a whole lot of detail. The mids lack a lot. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Not very good

Anonymous, Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Pros: Can't say I'm pleased with them. Got them a few months back to improve on my TV speakers (easy enough.) I have them matched up with a Denon AVR-790 (not exactly new), together with their matching center channel and a Yamaha sub, both of which came later. The truth is that to the naked eye (read e...
  • Cons: Boxed in sound.

Great sound. Physically sized right for my room.

  • Summary: Currently powering these with a Pioneer VSX-44.
  • Pros: The sound is great, maybe even fantastic. The Lows extend as much as midrange speakers should, and the highs are plenty high. The look impressed a few friends, before I even plugged them in. For a 2.1(left and right+ subwoofer) setup, these are better than my Klipsch F-30s, since these deliver th...
  • Cons: I ordered my second Klipsch F-30, then changed my mind, cancelled the sale, got confirmation from Newegg that the sale was cancelled, then I purchased these. The next day I received the F-30. Considering this pair cost roughly enough the same amount as that one speaker...

  • Pros: The sound out of the towers is crisp and clean. Definitely an upgrade to my system.
  • Cons: A little bulky. The towers are quite deep, but if want good acoustics, if must be so.

Good Speakers Bad Shipping Company

Robert R., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Pros: Good speakers for the money, also purchased the CS1 center and the RC60I ceiling speakers for the rears in a 5.1 setup. The overall sound is really good for for the price paid. Would have given 5 eggs, but OnTrac shipping delivered the order with no signature and left everything sitting in the yard.
  • Cons: OnTrac Shipping. I contacted this shipping company, asked them to delay the delivery by 2 days because I would be out of town. They ignored me, delivered the items anyway with no delivery signature and the items sat in the backyard for 2 days. I have always been happy with newegg, but if this is ...

DIANE P., Newegg

  • Summary: Purchased 4 of these to pair with a Yamaha RX-V477 1 Polk PSW10 and CS series to sell as a NIB 5.1 system. Ended up keeping them to sub for the Polk TSX220s I was going to purchase to complete my 7.2 system with a RX-V677 at the heart.
  • Pros: Great sounding speaker period.
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Very nice speakers for the price, They are at the time of this review 99$ even... which is a steal IMO... If you are still using those puny surround speakers that come with your receiver , I highly recommend these as a replacement.... you dont need 1000$ speakers. . . these sound great!
  • Pros: They sound great. I bought these to replace two satellite speakers (front LR) that came with the Yamaha Receiver I bought a while back, the difference is easy to hear, Its like I am listening to different songs, everything sounds different and you can hear more audible information in the music. ....
  • Cons: They are pretty tall and just 1" too high to fit where I wanted to put them, so no I have to modify the area a bit to fit them nicely (not a big deal for me), but make sure you have the space to fit these where you want before you buy. Another con is the price on these and other polk speakers see...
