Polk Audio CS1 Cherry Center Channel Loudspeaker Single

ICON Loading...

Polk's Monitor Series has been the gold standard of speakers since the 1970's. The CS1 center channel is a perfect accompaniment with accurate sound with strong bass and exception aural imaging. Polk made the enclosures out of MDF to be uniform in density and not resonate. They've also included ¾" thick baffles to help produce clear lifelike sound.

The two 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 are magnetically shielded so you can place them near your electronics.

  • newegg Horizontal Center-channel Speaker The horizontal center-channel speaker visually complements your flat-panel TV while delivering natural-sounding dialogue and vocals.
  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Polk Audio CS1 boasts dual 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, making it a perfect match for your Monitor series speaker system.
  • newegg Magnetically Shielded The magnetically-shielded Polk Audio CS1 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 eggsGreat Speaker...

Pros: Loving it so far... Got it paired up with (2) Monitor 60's, (2) Monitor 30's and PSW10 Subwoofer. All run by a Yamaha V-765 and couldn't be happier right now.

Cons: A little on the large side... but I knew what I was getting into.

5 out of 5 eggsTHIS IS TRUE CENTER CHANNEL

Pros: This speaker delivers everything you are looking for in a sold, but not over priced speaker. You truly pay a litte, but recieve a hole lot. Believe me when I tell you, it will be the performance that will win you. Not the price.

Cons: Overall size of the speaker. But nothing to concerned about.

5 out of 5 eggsNatural

Pros: Really provides a natural sounding center channel. Brings you into the conversation of a movie or makes you feel like you are at a live concert when listening to music.

Cons: A little big but it still fits OK.

Other Thoughts: Using with 4 Monitor 30's and 2 Monitor 50's and a powered sub-woofer. Newegg rocks for prices, selection, shipping and customer service.

5 out of 5 eggsI Can Understand What they Say!!!

Pros: I upgraded from a Yamaha Center Channel (Dual 5" Woofer and 1" tweeter), I was having issues understanding voices with the Yamaha. With this, all voices were clear and understandable. I also set this speaker side by side test with a Klipsch Center Channel (same specs as the Polk) and the Polk definitely is clearer. Great movie tester is transformers, when watching this movie the first, 30x, the Transformers were hard to understand, with the Polk, I was able to easy understand every word they said.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This speaker is sort of big, but for my home theater set up, i have no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsSound great.

Pros: I bought the CS1 [Mid/Woofer: 2 - 5.25" Diameter] for the family HT center because of price/name and was impressed. Needed to hear the CS2 [2 - 6.5" Diameter] and bought it. Sounds Great, more depth but slightly lower output resolved by upping center chanel output. Bought second CS1 and use it with other as main pair in computer room. I like the wide/deep cabinets because of the low profile. They fit great on shelves.

Cons: None.
