Summary: These are such a pleasure to listen to. I have a wide interest in music and I've found that these speakers sound fantastic with jazz fusion (Snarky Puppy), classical piano, acoustic guitar, ryhthm and blues (lalah Hathaway), acoustic folk (Alison Krauss), rocking horns, (Bonerama) and Tower of...
Pros: Sweet and solid with great mid bass response.
Cons: A little harsh but manageable with country and roots. A sub is a must if you want balance.
Summary: I've owned Polk speakers before, and I always come back to them for their distinct warm sound. If you like your music and movies to sound bright, I'd suggest looking at Infinity or Klipsch. Polk's are much warmer, and clear at any volume level provided they have the power, and they Are power hungry.
Pros: They look fantastic. The cherry finish is really beautiful. You can get a black speaker anywhere. Mix it up, and get the cherry.
Clean and clear sound.
Cons: Sound a little better for movies than music.
Take awhile to break-in.
Summary: First off, I got these things shipped for free to Alaska in less than 3 days. Amazing, thanks Crutchfield! <br /> <br />The speakers are still being broke in so I'm hoping they will continue to sound better with time. As of now, I am pleased with the sound.
Summary: Had to get things set with my receiver but once I did the sound is great and works well with my other Polk Speakers ie sub etc. The size of the speakers are great and they deliver great for the fairly large room size. Also works and sounds great with my audio-video set up.
Summary: These speakers were relatively inexpensive and sound great! Not quite enough bass but pair well with a Polk subwoofer that I already had. Probably would not use these alone without the additional bass butt overall they sound crisp and pack a nice punch with my Sony receiver.
