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 eggsAbsolutely love these speakers!

Pros: The sound out of the towers is crisp and clean. Definitely an upgrade to my system.

Cons: A little bulky. The towers are quite deep, but if want good acoustics, if must be so.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Speakers Bad Shipping Company

Pros: Good speakers for the money, also purchased the CS1 center and the RC60I ceiling speakers for the rears in a 5.1 setup. The overall sound is really good for for the price paid. Would have given 5 eggs, but OnTrac shipping delivered the order with no signature and left everything sitting in the yard.

Cons: OnTrac Shipping. I contacted this shipping company, asked them to delay the delivery by 2 days because I would be out of town. They ignored me, delivered the items anyway with no delivery signature and the items sat in the backyard for 2 days. I have always been happy with newegg, but if this is a shipping company that is now being used on a regular basis, I will think twice before I order again.

5 out of 5 eggsCant beat them with a stick

Pros: Great sounding speaker period.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased 4 of these to pair with a Yamaha RX-V477 1 Polk PSW10 and CS series to sell as a NIB 5.1 system. Ended up keeping them to sub for the Polk TSX220s I was going to purchase to complete my 7.2 system with a RX-V677 at the heart. After a breif "break in" period of heavy base on the "enhancer" selection they sound amazing for a $99 speaker. The folks that say these are not good speakers are crazy. Pair these up with a Yamaha receiver and youll be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: They sound great.
I bought these to replace two satellite speakers (front LR) that came with the Yamaha Receiver I bought a while back, the difference is easy to hear, Its like I am listening to different songs, everything sounds different and you can hear more audible information in the music. . . for instance background vocals in music is a lot more pronounced now, its a big upgrade and I am really enjoying them.

Cons: They are pretty tall and just 1" too high to fit where I wanted to put them, so no I have to modify the area a bit to fit them nicely (not a big deal for me), but make sure you have the space to fit these where you want before you buy.
Another con is the price on these and other polk speakers seem to fluctuate A LOT . . . +/- 30$ depending when you go to buy them, which is odd. . .
I was going to buy the 70 series but suddenly the price jumped 40$ per speaker and I decided to go with the 60 series.
They are pretty much the same thing minus one speaker.... which for me actually was probably a wiser move, since I don't want to over-load the receiver and run it too hard anyway.

Other Thoughts: Very nice speakers for the price, They are at the time of this review 99$ even... which is a steal IMO...

If you are still using those puny surround speakers that come with your receiver , I highly recommend these as a replacement.... you dont need 1000$ speakers. . . these sound great!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speakers

Pros: To me these speakers sound incredibly clear, even at lower volumes (like at night) I can still hear everything. For the price they probably can't be beat. Excellent fast shipping and I had no problems with grills or etc. Easy to setup, duh, they are speakers. Sound great when cranked too :-)

Cons: I don't think its a con really but they are rather large.

5 out of 5 eggssounds amazing

Pros: Sounds amazing! I ordered these for my basement. After trying them in my living room first, I had to rearrange the living room to fit them and keep them there. I ordered two more for the basement.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Can't go wrong with Polk Audio, especially at $99 a speaker.

4 out of 5 eggsQuick review

Pros: Good Looks, Smooth and clear sounds

Cons: Very little bass response

Other Thoughts: Had these for close to a week. Sound good, look great. Running a 3.1 system. Bass response of these speakers alone is embarassingly minimal. But, if your running a system with a quality subwoofer, no worries.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful sound

Pros: -Sound quality is absolutely amazing
-I am hearing sounds in old songs I never heard before
-Easy hook up to receiver
-Has 4 ports in back for 2 in and 2 out to another speaker (speaker chaining)
-Quality material

Cons: -they are kind of big but I love the size of them. If you are into super small speakers these towers might not be for you.

-They are not very bass suitable on their own. If you are considering to buy these by themselves they are okay but the bass notes are not too great. I would strongly recommend the 10in polk sub-woofer.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these, 2 bookshelve polk speakers, and a polk center speaker as well as the 10 inch sub and the entire setup while kind of spendy is absolutely amazing. Listening to classical music it's like your there. With rock and you'll be rocking out with your C#$% out in no time. With hip hop you'll be waking up your neighbors in NO TIME with the beats you can bump.

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.
