Just as Polk Audio said, "If it makes sound, we make it sound better". Polk Audio put a lot of effort into the CSR two-way center channel loudspeaker. Inside its acoustically inert MDF cabinet finished in black are two shielded 5-1/4-inch Dynamic Balance mineral-filled polymer composite cone mid-woofer drivers and one 3/4-inch shielded Dynamic Balance silk/polymer composite dome tweeter driver for wide-range response with low distortion. The CSR is magnetically shielded for safe placement near video sources. With CSR, dialog from movies and individual instruments from symphonies are more recognizable and detailed than ever.

  • newegg Unbeatable Sound Quality The Polk Audio CSR features two shielded 5-1/4-inch Dynamic Balance mineral filled polymer composite cone mid-woofer drivers and one 3/4-inch shielded Dynamic Balance silk/polymer composite dome tweeter driver, ensuring that any sound will be produced the way it was supposed to be.
  • newegg Secure and Versatile The Polk Audio CSR provides 5-way binding post inputs for the most secure connections and the most versatile wiring applications.

5 out of 5 eggsIm still shocked

Pros: I can't believe I got this quality for a New in box speaker at 50 bucks. I took a day or two of alot of various sounds through this and it just keeps getting better. I love it for movies, games, and TV . Did I mention 50 bucks. Matches my other Lower end Polk gear, (2x R300, PSW 10 ) and it is all sounding great . Nice and big , solid construction and , when on sale, 50 bucks.

Cons: Not 45 dollars?

Other Thoughts: For a budget system , this is a nice piece that makes even a half deaf older guy hear everything I need without being cranked up .Love great values and free shipping

5 out of 5 eggsLuving it!

Pros: Loving this center speaker. The sound quality is exquisite and this speaker is built to last. The price was great, got it for $49.99 shipped

Cons: No cons for me just yet.

Other Thoughts: I'm a big Polk audio fan. I have bought a few in the past and resold when moving out of town. Get this bad boy, it is worth every penny!

5 out of 5 eggsClear Excellent Center Speaker...

Pros: Excellent sound quality, build quality, appearance. No distortion... does exactly what it is supposed to do. Why pay hundreds of dollars for a center channel speaker that isn't nearly as good as this one?! I am completely sold on all of Polk Audio's product line. I just cannot believe the price on this fine quality speaker. Actually, I kind of wish I needed more of them! But one is plenty.....

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsSounds wonderful

Pros: This thing can pump out some loud, clean audio. The price (on sale) was wonderful considering the results. I'm quickly turning into a huge Polk fan.

Cons: This thing is a lot bigger than I expected. After underestimating the size of the R150's, I upped my expectations for this, and was once again taken by surprise. It's not really a con per se, especially since I have the room, but I had to put something.

Other Thoughts: I'm fairly new to home audio, so I've been piecing together my entry level system slowly. I made the mistake of first purchasing a BIC DV32CLR which, although sounded fine at first, quickly stuck out like a sore thumb after upgrading my surrounds and fronts. I bought this and it made the front sound really pleasant.

5 out of 5 eggspolk csr

Pros: Sound is very nice. I had a def tech 1000 that I needed to replace. Sound quality isn't that far off in comparison. When you factor in price for 50 bucks its was definitely a great deal.

Cons: Its way bigger than I thought. In reality it is my fault for not checking the specs more carefully.

Other Thoughts: Double check to make sure you have space for it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: The components used to make the speaker are of high quality. The sound is full, smooth, and rather neutral with no odd coloration that I can hear. They would benefit from a sub but do go low and don't NEED one like htib speakers do. The speaker looks really good as well. It is heavy and feels well built.

Cons: Not really a con but I wish the fabric on the grill was black instead of dark grey to visually blend with my Polk T15s better.

Other Thoughts: This is paired to four Polk T15s and a Yamaha VX 373 they all sound great together. Any of the speakers in the R/T/M line are timbre matched (same speakers with visual tweeks to be sold at differnt places) and will work great together. Any of the rtm speakers don't sound like entry level speakers especially for the price. I like the look of the R line the best and they are cheap on here I got the T15s at bb for 50 (xmas sale) a pair but now that the price is more I'd the R line from here.

4 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Quality Build and Sound

Cons: For the price next to none

Other Thoughts: A Truly Outstanding Performer for the Price.
Vocals are crisp and clear while being anchored firmly on the screen.

For the price I have yet to hear a center speaker to even remotely approach the CSR's performance.
If you have a small area or small wallet this is the speaker to get.

Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk CSR Review

Pros: High quality components and cabinet. Smaller size allows for cabinet mounting. Excellent sound quality. Clarity at high volumes. Crisp and clear voice output in movie watching.

Cons: Flat front. Speakers are not mounted on angle to allow for upward or downward direction of sound. Unit should be directly in front of listener.
