Summary: Bought 2 of these speakers one was DOA. Unfortunately I could not return the speaker since It was bought to use at my vacation home outside the country, so after purchasing then paying shipment cost and duties for a speaker that doesn't work am not a happy camper.
Summary: I ordered a couple of these, honestly i've never spent so much on speakers, never thought I would need to but boy I was so wrong, ever since I bi amped them to my a/v receiver they just sound incredibly sweet. The sound that comes out of these is very crisp and clear. Watching movies ever since have been very pleasurable.
Summary: I am a bit of a audiophile geek who has three different systems set up in the house at this point. The Polk's are the cheapest speaker I currently have set up. I bring that up as they do not sound like it! These speakers are a fantastic value and deliver some great low ends. At times you would even think there was a powered sub in them. High ends are very warm and not too harsh. Very attractive speaker.
Summary: They sound great. I am not a stereo guru and dont know a lot about how they work or why. I know that I replaced my BOSE acoutimas system front three speakers with POLK and couldnt be happier. The put out a lot more (and Clearer) sound than the double cubes I have from Bose. I will also add that the center speaker is the most important and is where I noticed the biggest difference. The center speaker I used was the POLK CS10.
Summary: For less than $500.00 for a pair, consider these speakers if you have a small room or are not looking to spend a fortune on speakers. Sure, Polk makes amazing speakers and there are much better models available. However, if you're looking for a good pair of speakers and your budget is tight, these are a great buy. Match these speakers with a CS10 or CS20 center speaker and your ears will be even more pleased!
Summary: Outstanding sound I bought these knowing the where previous models but I am happy wit sound and look of theses speakers would recommend these to anyone on a budget and they match well with my cs10 center
