Dissapointing

Bradley M., Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had this for a little over a month now. I am very dissappointed with this product. When not in use it will just turn on at random even when the remote is no where in site. The sound is decent however the remote is extremly difficult to program.
  • Pros: Subwoofer has good sound
  • Cons: Turns on 'mysteriously' and at random. Very hard to program remote.

Waste of Time

William K., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Pros: It sounds great when it works. nice highs and bass
  • Cons: After spending several hours getting this setup, mounted, and working... the device decided to go haywire. the source kept switch from 1 to 2 to 3 and back again. Then it took another couple hours to unhook, unmount, and box this thing. Save your time buy something else

Wireless Issues

Anonymous, Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Don't waste your time if you're busy like me and just want a decent sound bar to improve your junky standard TV speakers. Even with the huge 50% discount, it just isn't worth your trouble.
  • Pros: Sounds good when it works. The 'learning' remote also seemed to function correctly.
  • Cons: Like others have mentioned, this thing destroys the wireless connections in the whole neighborhood. Even when changing channels, as recommended, multiple routers, adapters, etc. would have issues that I'd never encountered before. Obviously, these things need some serious patches applied. At $150...

Subwoofer started popping after one day

Mr. H., Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Looks like others have had same problem with popping sub. Still others have had the unit stop working after days or months, and many reporting poor customer-service response from Polk. Sounds like the lemon rate on these are a little too high. Sounds great when it's working, but I'd stay away.
  • Pros: Easy setup, nice design, low price on NewEgg's sale, and bang for the buck is incredible when it's working (sounds awesome in my apartment).
  • Cons: Subwoofer started popping loudly after just one day. Not a big deal to turn the unit off immediately when not watching TV, but it's annoying when it pops during dead air between commercials or songs, or picking another movie — let alone when during suspenseful silence while watching a movie. *POP...

Don't waste your money, research a different brand

Jan F., Newegg
30 December 2013
  • Summary: Volume DOWN button doesn't work right out of the box. Subwoofer POPS at random moments, even on different channels. Constant WIFI interference causing my router to not work until I unplug and plug in the sound bar again, similar effect with my Smart-TV randomly to where I can't receive air channel...
  • Pros: *Easy to set up. *Sound quality at medium to high levels is great.
  • Cons: *Bad volume down button right out of the box *Creates WIFI interferences, causing other devices to malfunction *Low volume listening has high frequencies too high *Subwoofer emits random "POPS" that will make you jump *Programming the soundbar to use my original TV remote creates an issue where t...

Malfunctioned after two days

Anthony M., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I have emailed Polks customer service so I will wait to see what their action is.
  • Pros: The unit had good sound while it worked and it learned my TV controls very easily. So it worked well as far as my TV remote controlling it as well as everything else.
  • Cons: After two days it would not connect to the sub woofer any more. It appears that this is common from Polks web site. I tried changing channels, unplugging my wireless router, unplugging my cordless phone and still no connection. Then it got fun. I decided it would only respond to certain remote co...

Horrible

Ray F., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I may post a youtube video, if I get time, to show everyone how it sounds now.
  • Pros: Sounded OK while it lasted (a few hours)
  • Cons: Failed within the first hours of operation. I hooked it up using the optical cable, got the remote programmed, and everything set it up. I even put screws in the dry wall to hang it up. I was pretty happy with it at that point. Then later that day it just starting hissing very loudly. Trouble sho...

No joke, this product WILL fail!!!!!!

G. Kay, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Bought the 6000 figuring, as usual, that folks may have gotten bad units, had a lot of interference in their location, etc. Not the case. This worked great, for about 20 minutes. OK, exaggerating. First month or so was great. Sub about 15 feet from bar.
