Great bang for your buck extra channels for something higher than a 5.1 or used for rears.

Summary: I'm using these for my rear surrounds and my high mount front channels and they do their job well for the price, bass is lacking and a little flat but that's to be expected out of these sized speakers. They have a few ways you can mount them on the back which pretty much eliminates the need for having speaker brackets unless you want an extremely specific angle, the can mount flat on the wall horizontally or vertically, angling downwards or side to side.
Summary: Easy to mount, hook up, and tune. For the price and size, these can't be beat as surrounds. Fairly rich sound, but not as rich as a proper shelf speaker, such as my Monitor40 SeriesII speakers in another room.
Summary: Positives - clear high and mids, vibrant and clean sounds; lots of mounting options and a great deal for $99 a pair. Negatives - lows do not project very well, but if you have a good subwoofer it should not make a difference. Also they are made of plastic. I'm using these for my 7.1 home theater. Overall, I'm very pleased with the performance and clarity. Optimal for watching movies and playing video games. Highly recommended.
Summary: Two words describe the Polk OWM3's: Peppy and cheap. PROS: * Great high end and mid range. * Light weight due to plastic cabinets. * Essential 5 way binding posts. * Lots of mounting options. * Did I mention cheap? CONS: * Not quite as much low end as some pricier (but larger) surround speakers. The sound from the OWM3's are so clean they could almost be used as studio monitors.
Awesome speakers for surround sound. Highly recommended.

Summary: The overall sound quality is great and can hold its own in a medium-sized room. If you are going to be installing surround sound in a large room and/or with high ceilings, I would recommend the bigger brothers of these - the OWM5. For an extra $100, it is highly recommended, especially for larger rooms. If you have a small room, you could certainly get by with these as your main left and right speakers.
Summary: Pretty good sound quality.......easy to attach and fits exactly where the original speakers were hanging. Bigger and heavier than I anticipated, but no problem as they just went up exactly where the original ones were hanging. I might up the rating after we get more time listening to the music (we have only had them up for two days). Well packaged, protected, and quality of materials seems to be excellent.
Excellent Wall mount Speakers for Surround Sound or Second room listening.

Summary: Polk is a brand that has loyal followers, such as myself. They are committed to high quality at reasonable prices, and these speakers are no exception. They sound great, especially for surround speakers in my Home theater set up and look fantastic. several different mounting and positioning options (including standing on a table or shelf) make these so easy to place just as you want them. I have them mounted directly in the corner of the walls.
Summary: Im very happy with the Polk Audio OWM3 On-Wall Speaker (Pair, Black). Using them on a Sonos system with a few other speakers. They are more for filling in blank spots that the other speakers cant get to. I mounted them on a couple of Super Clamps with the 1/4 stud.
