Summary: I purchased these speakers to setup in a small room that didn't allow for larger traditional speakers. While small in size, these are built for great clear sound. I gave these a 5 star rating because they easily beat other satellite speakers on both price and sound quality. I would pair these with a great sub (like one from SVS Sound) and you will not be disappointed.
Great size, dialogue reproduction leaves something to be desired

Summary: I bought this speaker because I wanted to mount it to the wall, and didn't want a huge speaker hanging up there. I will say, I'm slightly disappointed with the performance, dialogue sounds somewhat "nasal." I've got it hooked up to a Pioneer Elite VSX 90TXV, and even after tweaking everything, I just can't get it to sound right. It could certainly just be personal preference, though.
Summary: Bought these for surround sound in my 7.1 setup. They sound ok and I wanted all of my speakers to be Polk and match. The reason I took off two stars doesn't have to do with the quality of the speakers. I took them off because I paid for new and they arrived in a box that was bulging because the Styrofoam around the speakers didn't fit and the accessories were just floating around in the box (surprisingly not broken). Not how new polk audio speakers come.
