Whybuy a speaker this size and expect bass like a subwoofer

Dafirst "Kell", Amazon
26 March 2015
  • Summary: I wonder why someone will buy a speaker this size and expect bass like a subwoofer!!! I have tried so many surround sound preamps on this speakers. Rotel, Sony Ep9es, Sony 9000es, . Honestly speaking, the two Sony products brought the beast in this speaker.

great sound from a small mid-priced speaker

  • Summary: Had these for a few years now and am still happy with the sound quality from these mid-priced speakers. I would consider buying Polk speakers again. As in all brands there are low end and high end these were the happy medium.

Okay for a small room

T. C. Gehner, Amazon
19 September 2008
  • Summary: These were my first polk speakers. I use them as sides along with a csi3 center, fxi3 backs, and a velodyne sub. They're okay, but in a medium-sized room, they definitely need the help of a sub (and I'm not the type who needs wall-shaking sound).

They sound good to me....

Patrick Konkel, Amazon
20 January 2008
  • Summary: I sat at American TV for an hour comparing these and the klipsch. Klipsch had great highs, but Polk sounded warmer and easier on the ears. I can turn these up as loud as I want and my amp overloads before they distort. One thing I don't like is their length.
