Summary: Finally convinced my mom(94) to purchase some better speakers and receiver. I found these speakers on sale at a great price and then saw an 'opened box' discount available at check out. Saved me(my mom) another $50. They showed up in 4 days.
Summary: I sold Hi Fi...OK, mid fi, back in the day when Polk was just making their mark. I loved Polk speakers, they were the Toyota of Hi Fi back then, they just went about making musical speakers and allowed beer budget, budding audiophiles a taste of the good stuff.
Pros: Smooth, musical, wonderful bass, smart looking in a small footprint. Bi-amp capable. Sound great on a variety of music. Don't need a lot of power to shine. No serious flaws, affordable almost audiophile sound. Polk continues its tradition of hitting above its weight. Many hi end speakers fall sho...
Cons: Splashy high end, less punchy dynamics than some competitors. A little chesty sounding. Nit picking, really.

Summary: I wasn't expecting such a good sounding speaker at this price. What other reviewers have said is generally true, they do sound a bit bright at first but that does seem to mellow out just fine.
Summary: Sounds and looks good, but not audiophile quality, which is expected for the price. I previously used Polk bookshelf speakers for the left and right channels and was satisfied. They moved to the front high position, making the overall system sound more realistic with these on either side of the TV.
