Summary: I recently mounted a 65" TV above my fireplace and replaced my old infinity studio speakers with these. I wanted something taller and thinner that would fit on each side of my fireplace. The sound is great as all the reviews I read said they would. I would recommend these to anyone in the market.
Summary: After tiring many speakers could not find any better in this price range, Good sound watching movies or listening to music. I'm running 4 of these with 2 12in subs at 135w per channel and it fills a 18 x 25 foot room well. Clean sound at medium volume with good range.
Summary: I feel it is only fair to mention my music history and musical tastes before you read the review. I am a former DJ and worked in pro-sound back in the 70’s and 80’s. I have used and owned countless speakers and my musical tastes are anywhere for Abba to Zappa and nearly everything in between...
Summary: I am an ordinary person who loves nice, clean, clear sound, the way it was meant to be. These speakers clearly do that and more. I got a subwoofer to go with this pair and an additional set of TSi200 bookshelf speakers. The base from these TSi500 speakers is really enough for me.
Summary: I have always liked Polk's speakers whether they were the old Monitor series or the newer RTi series. I felt that these were a pretty fair deal. I would imagine that the RTi7's would probably sound a little better but am very pleased with the TSI500's.
