5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck!

Pros: I purchased 3 of these for my left, center & right fronts. I've been blown away from day one with there performance. After there break in period the sound quality got even better. Great highs, mid range & lows. These speakers are great for starting out with for first time users or people who have been into home theater & music for many years. Polk Audio provides one of the best customer service around to date.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These speakers are Bi-wireable to give you the ultimate sound experience possible. If you can I recommend getting 12 gauge speaker wire to take complete advantage of what this speaker has to offer. Get these speakers while they last @ a steal price range!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: For what I paid, these speakers are, hands-down, unbeatable. Great range and crystal clear. I watched a movie that began with the THX sound preview and was blown away with being able to hear every little detail. They are still breaking in, so I've got high-hopes.

I like the glossy piano black top and the black finish actually fits well with my other electronics.

It's nice that I don't have to crank the volume on my receiver to hear things...which was the problem with my previous RM7 fronts and center. I keep the onkyo on 50-60 and it's perfect until you want to really make it loud.

Cons: So far I am totally satisified with the performance to cost ratio.

The packaging was beat up and one speaker was opened and obviuosly barely taped back up...I assume NewEgg shipped it in good condition, I just wish that the shipper (UPS, FEDEX, USPS, WHOEVER) would take a little more care with things.......

Other Thoughts: I have these bi-wired with an Onkyo 606, a CS20 center, a 8" polk sub, and RM7 surrounds (left from the original system). Everything sounds great but I am looking to upgrade the receiver in the near future. Then the sub and surrounds.

These towers are not "compact" so do your measuring....however, I would expect the size considering you get four 6.5inch drivers.

PS. You still need a sub.

5 out of 5 eggsElegant Crystal-Clear Full Range Speakers

Pros: i was replacing deteriorating (foam surrounds) Sterling Infinity speakers in my home theater with these and boy was I totally blown away! A perfect balance of high, mids, and lows. Great size with relatively small footprint compared to bookshelf speakers on speaker stands. The shiny top adds class. I prefer the black finish so they disappear into my home theater setup and match my black glossy Samsung and my black components. They are made beautifully. Measure and make sure they fit in your room. I also bought a center channel CS20 to match! They sound fine without bi-amping them. They also sound better as they break in.

Make sure you set your receiver up correctly. I had to set my Yamaha receiver on "small" speakers so the subwoofer would play all the time

If you want to hear all frequencies of your movies and music, make sure you use a subwoofer.

These speakers do not replace a subwoofer!

Cons: Boxes were in bad shape, but the speakers were free of blemishes. Be careful with the grills as they are flimsy and don't seems like you could take them on and off a lot.

Other Thoughts: Newegg had a great price! Extra fast delivery. Relax and order from the comfort of your home.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice indeed

Pros: I'm not audiophile, but to me these speakers sound great. Crisp, clear and can take plenty of juice. My receiver puts out 95w and you can crank it up much lounder than you'd want to stand listsening to.

Cons: Wish the top piece wasn't so dust attractive, they should have just used the wood on top as well. But minor.

5 out of 5 eggsLook Nice, sound pretty good, replacement of the M70's

Pros: Running them off an Onkyo 805 and they can take a lot more power. They sounds really good and i think they will sound better after they are broke in. at the price i bought them for and free shipping i was losing money if i didnt buy them from newegg.

Cons: not a huge fan of piano black. - Still look great.
One of the boxes was a little kicked in but thats no ones fault but UPS and no damage was done.

Other Thoughts: The port is in the bottom of the speakers and the carpet spikes keeps them just high enough for air to pass through.
I may place a board down to see if that changes the sound at all.

5 out of 5 eggsThe flagship

Pros: great looks and awesome sound for my HT, these are replacing my old (15yrs.) polk rt10's which will go to the rear.. Great customer service via polk can not be beat, if a driver goes, they simply send yu a replacement driver easy to switch out, but I will tell you if you blow these then you are using a garbage reciever and playing past its distortion point. Also the price these sell for 399.00 everywhere else.

Cons: had to wait 2 days fir shipping, and waited 4 days for them to fall down to 299.00 lol
