ICON Loading...

Polk's Monitor Series has been the gold standard of speakers since the 1970's. This current generation features clear, accurate sound with strong bass and exception aural imaging. Polk made the enclosures out of to be uniform in density and not resonate. They've also included ¾" thick baffles to help produce clear lifelike sound.

The three 5.25" cones are made from a bi-laminate composite for an optimal balance of weight and rigidity. The small driver delivers a wide open sound and exceptional responsiveness. The 1" tweeter is a fabric/polymer composite the responds swiftly to the high efficiency Neodymium magnet. The crossovers between the drivers use Mylar bypass capacitors to let all of the details in the higher frequencies shine through.

No matter how good they sound, they have to look good too. Their contemporary look compliments today's flat panel televisions and modern decorating styles. They're magnetically shielded so you can place them near your electronics. The slim design takes up less than one square foot.

  • newegg Slim Design The Polk Audio Monitor 60 features a slim, elegant design for a perfect match with your flat-panel TV, plasma monitors and other thin-line home cinema components.
  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Polk Audio Monitor 60 boasts three 5.25" Bi-Laminate composite dynamic balance drivers and a 1" dynamic balance silk/polymer composite dome tweeter to deliver crisp highs and accurate lows even at high power levels, ideal for home cinema applications.
  • newegg Magnetically Shielded The magnetically-shielded Polk Audio Monitor 60 can be put at any proximity to display devices such as TVs and LCD monitors without loss of sound quality caused by interference.

5 out of 5 eggsmonitor 60s

Pros: the monitor 60s produce a great sound. Movies and Gaming are what i use them for most and they have yet to fail or let me down. awesome price. look great.

Cons: bass is good, but for the effect everybody loves in a movie or game, a sub-woofer is a must.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speaker

Pros: These speakers are well-designed and have what I think are great features. They have an excellent frequency response and a pretty flat sound. They're actually quite thin, thinner than I thought. They're just over 3 feet tall which you can figure out if you look at the specs. In other words they don't really take up a lot of room horizontally. If you're wondering why these are such a great deal on newegg, it's because they're a vintage speaker, now replaced with the TSi series.

Cons: If you want the latest and greatest, these aren't it. These are not 3-way speakers, they are 2-way. They produce decent bass, but they're still not SUB-woofers, just woofers. They will perform best with a sub-woofer. Unfortunately, if you buy these, UPS will probably toss the box around a little bit. To Polk's credit, the box and the speakers seem to be able to take the abuse.

Other Thoughts: I have these hooked up to an Onkyo HT-RC260 as fronts with Monitor 30's in the back and a CS1 center. I'm using an old Sony SA-W2500 I had laying around as a subwoofer. They sound absolutely terrific in this set-up and while the sub is the weakest link it hangs in there. Like everyone else has mentioned, you can't beat the value on these speakers. Are there better speakers out there? Yeah, but you're going to be spending at least $100 more to get there.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid speakers

Pros: You get a lot o decent sound from these.
Inexpensive for what you get
Great basis for a low-mid-level HT setup

Cons: Speaker cones are not terribly high quality to the touch but still sound quite good even in high-demend situations with good audio BDs

Other Thoughts: Building a simple HT system but HT-in-a-box is too cheesy? This is a great component. You can put together a 5.1 system of this family of polk stuff for cheap and you'll be pretty happy. Spend 3X and buy B&W and you'll have a completely different experience but thats what money buys you.

5 out of 5 eggsNice speakers for the price

Pros: Good quality speakers at a modest price, Crisp mids and highs and good bass for my room size. Sounds great with dvd movies and music while sounding even better with jazz, blu-ray, and games.

Cons: The one con I have with these speakers is that they are so loud that my wife is always telling me to turn them down.

Other Thoughts: I have these paired with a modest Pioneer VSX 519V-K receiver, Polk T15s, CS1, and a 12" subwoofer. The result is a system that while not costing too much, fills movies, games, and music with impressive sound.

5 out of 5 eggsGood deal.

Pros: The sound is nice and clear (comparing to my old Sony speakers.)
The bass is good enough for music listening, even Kodo drums.
They are fairly tall and slim - they look good!
Great price and delivery from Newegg.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: It is a simple stereo system with Yamaha RX-397 receiver and Yamaha CD-C600 CD changer.
CD-C600 also has an USB port that handles iPod or other devices.

5 out of 5 eggsNice addition

Pros: Great sound, small footprint

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired up with a CS1 center, PSW505 and 4 LX5 Pros (with the Linaeum tweeters). Any decent HT system needs a sub, so I won't knock the relatively weak bass.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal

Pros: Just purchased two of these to replace two Polk Audio M20 I had beem using for my front speakers. What a great upgrade.Bought them on sale for I think it was $105.00 ea plus 2.99 shipping. Could not beat the price. I have not been disappointed in the sound quality. Match very well with my other Polk products.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I have not been disappointed with Polk or Newegg yet. I use the Monitor 60 with a Polk PSW505 sub, CS1 center channel, and RC60I ceiling speakers for a 7.1 setup.All were purchased from Newegg. I think Polk provides a great product at a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome speakers!

Pros: All I can say is WoW, these are amazing speakers for the money! These really shine with HD audio sources, such as bluray movies, they also do a very good job with music, I use these as my 2 fronts, I will be also buying 2 more for the rears.

Cons: noticed people were complaining about bass? well after breaking them in for about a month, the bass is very responsive, so no con here :)

Other Thoughts: I have these paired with the PSW110 sub even though I could have went without it, but for movies, definitely get a subwoofer! Why pay more for the TSi series when these sound very close to them...
