5 out of 5 eggsGreat speakers!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: The first reason for posting... I also had broken grills on the 70s, as others are mentioning. (The 40s and the CS2 I also bought came intact.) On a whim, I decided to read some reviews on the speakers. Then, I read on another post that the warranty is 2 years but through Newegg it's 5. You can contact Polk Audio for replacement grills if they were broken. They asked for proof, since I didn't notify them right away (bought the speakers in 2011) and I emailed them my Newegg invoice and a few days later I received some nice, unbroken grills to put on my 70s!
Just contact them closer to the date of purchase (with 1/2 a year) and they won't even bother w/ all the paperwork (as Customer Service Rep. Ken also mentioned in my email).

Great sound. Got them paired w/ 2 sets of monitor40s, a center CS2 and a Bic America Acoustech PL-200. All hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-1021-K 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver, which hasn't pooped out on me yet.

Great deal on speakers if you wait till Thanksgiving. YMMV. But, usually waiting till holidays will net you some $$ savings.

When friends who know their sound and speakers come over or see pics of my setup, they'll give me props. Sound is great. Pop in a movie w/ a great soundtrack and it's like I'm at the movies w/o the overwhelming smell of overpriced popcorn and sticky shoes. (I also used to work at a movie theater.) The sound is holding up after 4 years, though I watch less movies now.

Cons: they're too cheap?

Other Thoughts: I thought I wrote on this before, but I couldn't find my review.

You won't be disappointed!

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Garbage

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: No Pros

Cons: The sound is more worse than my Toyota's manufacturer speakers. And Toyota is in the business of making cars, not speakers. The sound is child's play. I would never buy a Polk speaker again.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: These are a very nice low budget speaker. Polk has done a fine job with the Monitor series. I purchased these 2 years ago for under three hundred bucks for the pair. My first instinct was purchase the Klipsch rf 30. I'm glad i bought these first. Good mid-ranges and highs. The speakers are visually appealing thin and tall. The sound stage is good quality. The build is good nice tight cabinets the grills are easy off easy on,

Cons: Like I said the speakers are non directional as the sound produced is bleeding out in all directions. These things are very power hungry too. You need to pump up the wattage for them to sound good. A good amp is a prerequisite 100+ watts per channel should suffice. If you are looking at purchasing these speakers for a home theater you will need a Sub wolfer. Last year reading through some of the reviews I noticed allot of folks losing tweeters, My take on that would be underpowered amps.
One other thing, being so thin and tall the speakers are very easily knocked over. Be Carful or you will be repairing your walls. They make nice diamond shaped holes in your drywall.

The Klipsch RF 30s do sound a little better to me. But like everything that is up to your preference. Everyone has a different ear.

Other Thoughts: All in all for the price point these are a good entry level speaker. The sonic expansion is noticeable but not so much that the speaker get muddy, The highs are acceptable and the mid range kicks, the lows are lacking any deep down booming house shaking bass, For listening to rock jazz and hip hop no issues, where i feel they fall short is classical and heavy instrumental 40s era music and opera .
If you are looking for a bargain, know going in that these are not an audiophile type speaker. Then these are a good deal with an appealing good quality sound. You shouldn't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat front towers

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Love these things. They sound great, very clear, nice sound stage.

Cons: Big and deep, but they look great and I knew that buying them.

Other Thoughts: Polk 70 fronts, 60 rears, CS2 center, and 2x 12' polk subs makes a heck of a theater.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Clear in most of the sound range. Good highs and mids not bad in bass but you probably have a sub anyway. I have a PW505 which complements these very well.

Cons: A little weak on bass but overall good for the size of the drivers. Some say these are big but they are thinner and taller than my old infinity sm215s

Other Thoughts: They do need a good power source my Onkyo TX-NR414 is almost too small but it still pushes them to the point of being painfully loud. Add a subwoofer, good surrounds, and a sub and they are great home theater speakers as well.

Some say they are too bright I noticed but they are actually less bright than my Klipsch center channel with its horn tweeter. Overall I am very happy with these speakers and they made a great replacement for my old Infinity SM 215 which had become frankenspeakers over the years as their drivers had died.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good speakers for the $

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Great sound from decent lows to clean/clear mids/highs.

Cons: Flimsy grill, which I don't use anyhow. They look much better without it.

Other Thoughts: I bought a pair of the Monitor 40's, and was so impressed that I got these. Last year I bought the RTI a9's, but returned them after a couple weeks. The midrange woofers looked like they were gonna pop out of the cabinet when I put some watts to the speakers. The Monitor 70's take what I give them and handle it easily. I have a Yamaha Aventage RX-a840 and it has no issues getting bass out of these speakers. Nice clear sound from these, with the perfect amount of bass. I listen to Zydeco, Rock, and Pop music, and it all sounds great. Buy these while they are still available. You won't regret your purchase at all. Cheers!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent speakers!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Excellent sound quality at all volumes, very versatile, clean style, great cabinet quality! Works excellently bi-amped and sound great on their own or in a surround set up! These are the best speakers for the price!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased a pair of Monitor 70 series II's to replace an older pair of Monitor 70 series I's that I had sold about a year ago and these do not disappoint, especially for the price!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: For the price these speakers are awesome.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any trouble with them and my Onkyo 727 has been able to keep up without any problems. Just be aware if your amp is a little on the wimpy side, these babies are hungry.

5 out of 5 eggsThee are great speakers

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: I just upgraded my speaker system for my home theater. I had old 90's era Infinity 5.1. I purchased these, a PSW505 sub and CS10 Center channel along with new receiver.
This system is AWESOME!!! I use primarily for Home theater watching movies but music is great also. I can crank these up and virtually no distortion. they actually sound better the louder they go. The monitor series is excellent, 'm glad I didn't go up to the TSi300 model. I know they say they are matched better to the center channel but I think the monitor series gives you more bang for the buck and they do sound great !!!

Cons: None here !!!
