Average at best, nice looking at a fair price for what you get!

Summary: I bought a pair of these small Polk's to use strictly as rear or side speakers only. I already own four very great Definitive Studio Monitor 450's that have mind blowing performance. So I decided it was not worth spending $500 more on a pair of Definitive Bi-Pole speakers for my sides in my 7.1 setup. I also own a Polk CS-10 center that has been a real performer.
Summary: This is a great cheap speaker for a small 5.1 movie set-up. The matching center speaker is a must-buy for this arrangement. These are absolutely useless for music. The build quality is very good, and they look really sharp. The top accent panel is pretty. The unusual placement of the tweeter can be an advantage if the speakers are mounted high or on a wall. These have built-in wall hanging potential. All you need is a screw and an anchor and you can hang them anywhere.
Summary: had these for a awhile now. originally bought for an upgrade to replace small cheapy sonys. vast improvement. however i gotta say if i had to do it again id probably buy kilplish?? brand. the sound is very "mellow" ...(muffled), "for a natural sound thats easy on the ears"...alot of midrange n low end, not bright at all. dialoge is not very clear. ive since bought some polk towers, n ill move these to the rear or sides.
Summary: I have Polk A3s as my front speakers and Klipsch B2s as my rears. I purchased the TSi100's to replace the Klipschs so I would have an all-Polk set-up. The Polks do sound fine in isolation, but it only took me about a day to realize the B-2's sounded better in a side by side comparison. The B2's have a 92db sensitivity vs 89 db for the Polks (e.g. makes better use of the receiver's power output). The B2's definitely had better highs.
