Polk Audio Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) - Single

The name "Monitor" is special to Polk Audio. The original Polk Audio Monitor Series, produced in the mid-1970s, ushered in the modern loudspeaker era by setting the standard for performance and value.

The original Monitor Series is the line that made Polk Audio famous with its simple, sturdy construction, clear, accurate sound, powerful bass and superior imaging all at a price that made great sound available to everyone. The reborn Monitor Series is classic Polk: a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. They are highly efficient, so they can be driven easily by unpretentious receivers, and they are voice matched for lifelike surround sound environments. The Monitor Series boasts a stylish look that complements today's flat screen technology, with wood grain finishes and mod Titanium faces, and beefy stabilizer feet on the tower models.

Built for speed, sound quality and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.

Incredible Sound. Affordable Price.

The high efficiency design of this classic floorstanding loudspeaker allows it to reveal the classic Polk Audio sound (open, spacious and clear) even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. This is the hallmark of the stylish Monitor Series.

The Monitor 60II Features:

  • 1-inch (25mm) fabric/polymer composite Dynamic Balance® dome tweeter with powerful neodymium magnet structure delivers clear and detailed high frequency response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments.
  • 5 1/4-inch bi-laminate composite Dynamic Balance drivers are lightweight and stiff with good damping for high efficiency, excellent bass and lower distortion.
  • Multiple small-diameter driver design delivers wide dispersion, better mid-range, and more detailed bass response for an open, "box-less" three-dimensional sound.
  • Non-resonant all-MDF enclosure construction with 3/4-thick baffles and front-to-back and side-to-side internal bracing ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality.
  • Crossovers use Mylar bypass capacitors for more detailed high frequencies.
  • Dual 5-Way binding post connectors, allowing for more secure hook-up options, as well as bi-wiring and bi-amping flexibility.
  • Monitor Series speakers are "modern living accessories" that make a stylish statement in either black or cherry wood grain finish, with titanium faces.
  • Bold, fat stabilizer feet that ensure stability on carpet or hard floors for more precise bass response and superior imaging.
  • Slim tower design has a footprint of less than one square foot.
  • Critically tuned flared port minimizes port noise ("chuffing") for good low frequency extension with low distortion, resulting in natural, full-bodied sound with rich bass.
  • All Polk Audio products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry's most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk Audio loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, can't beat them when on sale!

Pros: I have the original series of these speakers. When they are on sale, for the price (a C note at the moment) you will not find a better sounding value. The sound from these in a home theater is just amazing, and music has amazing clarity, far beyond the soundbar and Beats doggie doo that is out there today. I have 2 M70's and a CS2 setup for my fronts and 4 M60's for surround and the sound is just awesome. While I was working on my house I had a couple of the M60's hooked up to my old school Sony TA-N80ES amp and the music was brilliant.

Cons: They are big, as in, hey it's bigger than a Bose speaker! Just measure. Bose sucks. Remember that.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Speakers

Pros: Love them. They look great, very professional. I'm not an audiophile, but they sound great. They are large as I expected and a bit heavy. However, if they were lighter I'd be worried about them tipping over too easy.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Don't put them in a walk way. Very easy to bump with your hip and tip over.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper deal, super sounds

Pros: Great systems for the price, I purchased 4 and Series II subwoofer. Crisp high and mid with tight base. The sub augmented vibrating the floor. Nice fit, perfect size and companion for the family room music center

Cons: Arrived too fast... not expected for 4 business days.. ordered Saturday, they were delivered in on business day, on Veteran's Day. Newegg rocks, full of surprises. Okay, a positive negative!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal, solid speakers

Pros: Great range and very well built speaker. I picked up a pair to complete my 5.1 system and couldn't be happier with the deal on these speakers.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Polk monitor series are a very cost effective way to building a surround sound thanks to the great deals on this site.

5 out of 5 eggsFor The Price..

Pros: Got a set of these to fill in for RTI-A7's which I ultimately want for my home theater but for $89 a speaker they are really solid and will easily hold their own in my setup until I get the upgrades. They look nice and sound fine.

Cons: Not really any. I am not a fan of the wire connectors in the back but other than that, very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsstylish and clear

Pros: small foot print, decent sound

Cons: although the sound is great, it lacks the low end punch below 70hz. Sounds best if coupled with a decent subwoofer and properly adjusted crossover

5 out of 5 eggsgood choice

Pros: Many of the reviewers have these speakers set up in a 5.1 system. They're very good for that, no doubt. But I now use the Monitor 60s in an old school 2-channel set-up with a vintage (and if I may say, rocking) Denon PMA-750 integrated amplifier. Excellent sound when set up with a good quality turntable, CD player, and Sonos Connect. So if anyone has interest in using these in a 2-channel system you probably won't be disappointed.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsLove these things

Pros: Classy look, nice finish. I waited some time before writing a review as I wanted to let them break-in. It had been a long time since I owned a home audio system and after reading the reviews on these and the shell shocker deal I decided to buy a pair. Not disappointed at all. For an "entry" level speaker these things can really rock. These along with a pair of bose 301 series iii, the cs2 series II and psw505 all behind the yamaha rx-v573bl.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Eventually I will move these speakers and make some tsx550t the main fronts but these will be excellent rear speakers
