very good

 

I can hear all the movie dialogs now. I had 2 Polk monitor 60 for front. they are really good, but I would miss conversation while watching movies. I was wondering what is missing. Then one of comments I read that movies 60% dialogs come through...

Polk Audio fan

 

I told the wifey to crank up the onkyo/polks/epik setup, in the den, to combat the greatness coming from the back room. Strangely, she didn't find my statement funny.

Great sound at low volumes (as others have stated). Crisp and handles power without distortion. For the price, this was a great buy. I use this center, 2x polk monitor 70's, and 2x polk vm-10's, in my back room, to listen to vinyl. I am happy with this...

It is a big center. I didn't check the weight and size of this prior to receiving it. If you don't have a lot of space for a center, don't buy this one (I was able to make room). If you have small l and r speakers, you setup will look strange.

Poor first impression

 

I wasn't even in the market for a new center channel speaker, but I hit up Newegg fairly regularly to see what kind of deals are available, and saw this. I was reading through the reviews out of curiosity, but then Jude M.'s caught my eye. I'm in the...

Sounds amazing. Audio is full and crisp. Fine details can be heard even at low volume levels, unlike the cheap 5.1 speakers I originally purchased when I got my receiver.

There is a loose wooden piece inside the speaker. I heard something rattling around just as I was getting ready to set it up on my entertainment shelf. Shining a flashlight inside the port revealed a wooden block with glue on one side, which obviously...

Great center

 

Polk monitor 70 front towers, 60 back, and this for the center makes a nice surround setup. Paired with two of the polk 12' subs and my house is a heck of a theater.

Bought to complete my surround setup. Great center, clear, and creates a nice sound stage with the other polk towers

it is pretty big, but that isn't really a bad thing if you have space for it.

Nice center channel

 

Sounds great with two pair of Monitor 40s and an old Infinity subwoofer, driven by a Yamaha HTR 4065. Dialog sounds clear and natural.

It may be too large for some cabinets -- it barely fit in ours.

Good

 

Newegg has good price on these.

Very good sound for home theater. Used with Monitor60s also purchased at Newegg. Not a big fan of center channel and usually drive it down a bit but with some adjustments to Yamaha Receiver I like it.

Perhaps more sound from a box (directional) than old premium Radio Shack speaker it replaced. After making advanced adjustments to Yamaha receiver this is mostly gone now. Large.

Polk cs2

 

The CS2 does not disappoint, deep bass and nice highs. I have mine teamed with polk 75t and psw12 up front and bose 161's and psw10 in the rear and the experience is awesome. I may not be an audiophile but this set up blows away friends and family. And...
