Summary: I bought these speakers going by the reviews of others and I'm glad I did.They are part of my surround system and sound fantastic.I have hardwood floors in a medium size room.This is the first time I have bought Polk products and am very impressed. I have these coupled with a Polk powered sub, Polk c-20 center, and Klipsch rear bookshelves. They are being driven with a Sony receiver delivering 100w per channel.
Great looks, Great price, Great sound, Polk Tsi 500's
6 April 2012
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with my Polk Tsi500 speakers,that I purchased factory refurbished from Polk Audio. The speakers were in perfect condition and look great. The 500's really sound great and bring music to life. I think the bass response is adequate,but I prefer a bit more bass, incorporating a Velodyne powered sub woofer into the system , WOW !! Highs and midrange frequencies are very nicely reproduced as well.
Summary: I have been using these for a while. I have hooked them up to an old pioneer power amp, with my yamaha reciever. and a couple older denon reciever's. and my yamaha reciever, with a yamaha MX-1 power amp. I bi wire them strait from the reciever there not great underpowered. but once you give em the power they want 200 + watts they come alive! I thought they sounded best bi wired right from either of my Yamaha 765, or the 665.
Summary: These speakers simply put are outstanding. Great clarity and bass for any type of music. They are powered by an Onkyo TX-8555 Stero Receiver, a Teac CD-P650 CD Player and a Klipsch SW-110 Powered Subwoofer. Believe me this system rocks the house.
Summary: I bought these speakers refurbished from Polk Audio a few weeks back. I bi-amped these speakers to a Onkyo amp and they sound incredible. Great lows and highs with the bi-amping. I would highly recommend these speakers to anyone looking for a rich sound to both music and movies.
Summary: Sound- the best performance in the upper entry segment. I moved from a set of polk R300s to these and yes they make a huge difference in the sound. I feel the room shake during explosion and low bass sequences. They image very well..the image size increased about 2-3 times from the r300s when listening in 2 channel. I am using these with a CS20 center and the front sound stage is immense.
Summary: Sound- the best performance in the upper value segment. I moved from a set of polk R300s to these and yes they make a hugh difference in the sound. I feel the room shake during explosion and low bass sequences. They image very well..the image size increased about 2-3 times from the r300s. I am using these with a CS20 center and the front sound stage is immense. I spoke to polk audio support and they suggested I use the Polk RC60i's for rears due to my living room layout.
