Summary: These speakers are Bi-wireable to give you the ultimate sound experience possible. If you can I recommend getting 12 gauge speaker wire to take complete advantage of what this speaker has to offer. Get these speakers while they last @ a steal price range!
Pros: I purchased 3 of these for my left, center & right fronts. I've been blown away from day one with there performance. After there break in period the sound quality got even better. Great highs, mid range & lows. These speakers are great for starting out with for first time users or people who have...
Summary: I have been using some vintage Sansui and Pioneer speakers for some time and finally decided to purchase some high end speakers. What a difference! I used to think my SP-2500s sounded good until listening to the TSi500s. They bring out the detail in all of my music.
Summary: Much has been written about the acoustical qualities of this speaker so I just wanted to add a comment about the cherry exterior. First off, it is beautiful. It looks like quality wood furniture and the high gloss piano black accents are very sophisticated.
Summary: I have these bi-wired with an Onkyo 606, a CS20 center, a 8" polk sub, and RM7 surrounds (left from the original system). Everything sounds great but I am looking to upgrade the receiver in the near future. Then the sub and surrounds. These towers are not "compact" so do your measuring...
Pros: For what I paid, these speakers are, hands-down, unbeatable. Great range and crystal clear. I watched a movie that began with the THX sound preview and was blown away with being able to hear every little detail. They are still breaking in, so I've got high-hopes. I like the glossy piano black top...
Cons: So far I am totally satisified with the performance to cost ratio. The packaging was beat up and one speaker was opened and obviuosly barely taped back up...I assume NewEgg shipped it in good condition, I just wish that the shipper (UPS, FEDEX, USPS, WHOEVER) would take a little more care with th...
Summary: I have a Denon AVR 4308 (140W per). These speakers are very efficient and provide great sound for non-critical listening. Comments on packaging are justified. My boxes had holes but no damage. This a great choice for AV front speaker
Summary: Newegg had a great price! Extra fast delivery. Relax and order from the comfort of your home.
Pros: i was replacing deteriorating (foam surrounds) Sterling Infinity speakers in my home theater with these and boy was I totally blown away! A perfect balance of high, mids, and lows. Great size with relatively small footprint compared to bookshelf speakers on speaker stands. The shiny top adds clas...
Cons: Boxes were in bad shape, but the speakers were free of blemishes. Be careful with the grills as they are flimsy and don't seems like you could take them on and off a lot.
These sound and look fantastic, especially for the price.

Summary: I'm very happy with my Polk TSi500 speaker pair. They look as good in real life as they do in the pictures, although I prefer the look of the exposed cones to the speaker grille. The sound quality is about as good as you can expect for speakers priced in this range.
Pros: I'm not audiophile, but to me these speakers sound great. Crisp, clear and can take plenty of juice. My receiver puts out 95w and you can crank it up much lounder than you'd want to stand listsening to.
Cons: Wish the top piece wasn't so dust attractive, they should have just used the wood on top as well. But minor.
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.
