Polk Audio TL1600 has an amazing sound for their size.

 

I would buy again and I would definitely recommend them to others. It's all about the sound and these six inch speakers have a big speaker sound quality.

Amazing sound for their size, nice solid feeling to them and they are good looking. The speakers are bigger than others I've owned but only by an inch or two

I really haven't found any cons with this speaker set

Good But not so Great

 

it loses an egg because the two RM7's in the back don't cut it. if you need to buy this, you better upgrade to the RM95's which have 5 RM8 speakers. it is a lot more clear. also this sound system is old which is why they are cheap.

The front portion of the system works great (the RM8's)

YOU NEED "SPEAKER CABLES" AND A "RECEIVER!" THIS IS NOT A STAND ALONE SET ; since the front is clearly better than the back two (which are RM7's) the front overpowers the back. it often sounds like you're using a 2 speaker system instead of a 5 because...

AWESOME SPEAKERS

 

Only wish I had opted for the RM95 or RM97 setup, as the RM8 speakers are the true worth of the system itself. The RM7's don't hold a candle to the RM8's. Now a total fan of the Polk Audio lineup and just purchased a pair of Monitor 60 Series II to...

Phenomenal sound quality out of such small speakers. Still in the breaking in process of the speakers, however I install home audio and car audio systems for a living. These speakers, after reading the reviews on them, were a must have for me. Replaced...

Obviously the breaking in period of any speaker. Otherwise, none so far

great sound for the money

 

I'm no audiophile but I think that for the money (when on sale) these would be hard to beat. You can enjoy a lot of Pinkfloyd on these ;-)

Great sound, they don't take a whole lot of space. Very nice fit and finish

None for what I paid for them

Nice, simple design

 

They do just what they're supposed to do. Good range. Good size. No complaints.

Great size. Nice mounting hardware. The base is designed so you can run speaker wire out the bottom of the speakers, and straight into the wall

None so far

Nice Speaker System

 

I purchased this for use in my bedroom about 13x15x8' room. I am running them off a very old Sony STR-DE 945. The sound is clean and clear. the sub is not a big boomer, but not really needed or wanted in my bedroom. Used for watching TV and the...

Small footprint, good sound, multiple mounting options, FREE PSW111 subwoofer, and easy setup

Not crazy about the spring clip wire connectors, 16ga. wire is about all your going to be able to use without thinning the wire
