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 newly reborn Monitor Series II 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 contemporary look, with vinyl veneer finishes, modern dark grey faces, and bold stabilizer feet on the tower models. Built for speed, sound quality and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.

  • newegg Slim, High Efficiency Design The Polk Audio Monitor70B features a slim tower design with a footprint of less than one square foot to fit your flat-panel TV, plasma monitors and other thin-line home cinema components. High efficiency design allows the Monitor70B to reveal the classic Polk Audio sound (open, spacious and clear) even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. Bold, fat stabilizer feet ensure stability on carpet or hard floors for more precise bass response and superior imaging.
  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Polk Audio Monitor70B boasts four 6.5" Bi-Laminate composite dynamic balance drivers stiff with good damping for high efficiency, excellent bass and midrange clarity with lower distortion. And a 1-inch 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.
  • newegg Enhanced Features The Polk Audio Monitor70B features small-diameter driver design that 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 ¾"-thick baffles ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality. Crossovers use Mylar bypass capacitors for more detailed high frequencies. 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.
  • newegg Magnetically Shielded The magnetically-shielded Polk Audio Monitor70B can be put at any proximity to display devices such as TVs and LCD monitors without loss of sound quality caused by interference.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent speakers!

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!

5 out of 5 eggsMonitor70 Series II

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

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 !!!

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: I received the monitor 70 series II a few days after new years. The speakers arrived in perfect condition, no damage to the grills.

I'm using a Denon 2312CI to drive two Monitor 70 II (front), one CS2 (Center) and two Monitor 30 II (Back Surround). My Denon 2312CI 7.2 claims 105 Watt per channel. Even though actual Watt ratings are lower than what is advertised (For just about any receiver) , all speakers sound great in a 5.1 setup. I have to admit, at first I was concerned that my Denon would not have enough power to run the Monitor 70s II. I live in a townhome, living room = 15 x 15 ft. More than enough power and sound for my needs, and like many, I need my audio to sound its best in all listening areas. I'm SO glad I did not pay for a higher powered AVR or External Amp. (The Denon 2312CI does not support external amplification)

Though, please note: When I first setup my speakers, the sound stage was underwhelming. Once I ran the auto speaker configuration, and Denon's Audessy calibration completed, the sound coming from the speakers is now exactly what I was hoping.

Anyway, Great sound & perfect size for my living space

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsPower Hungry

Pros: Arrived in 3 days only paid 300 for the pair
Fair sound at a bargain price. Look Fantastic.good frequency mids highs and lows ok. Would buy them again at that price range.

Cons: Out of the box theses speakers are very tinny. After about six months of use they sound great but are very power hungry you will need a good Amp to drive these speakers.
Arrived with a white blemish on the top front corner no big deal but it look silly on a black speaker

Other Thoughts: After a year of listening to these they are now relegated to the wreck room the kids enjoy them. With their hip hop and rock on my Denon they rock. However they really never impressed me. they lack something like a bottom end. I have a Paradigm 12in base but they never really hit the sweet spot i was looking for. So i went for a larger speaker.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk Monitor 70 series II

Pros: They look great! Cant beat the Newegg price! Sound fabulous!

Cons: Not much of a con...You do need some power behind these babies...

Other Thoughts: I am running an Onkyo TX-NR626 7.2 receiver, 2 Polk Monitor 70 series II for (fronts), a Polk CS2 series II (center) 2 Polk Monitor 40 series II for both (side surround) and (rear surround), and a Polk PSW 505 (sub).

So far I am very happy with this setup. I may need to upgrade the receiver to better power the Monitor 70s

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: What performance, what sound quality!! What a difference! Crystal clear sound whether movie or music combined with the Polk Monitor 25C Center speaker it adds a new dimension to what I had before. I have added the BIC F12 sub and I could not be happier.

Cons: If there is a con it would be size. These are not small.

Other Thoughts: Haven't had this long enough to comment on durability, quality but at this price I am very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid purchase

Pros: Great full sound.

Cons: Needs a lot of power. Bi-amping is almost a must to get the max amount of sound out of these

Other Thoughts: First receiver didn't support bi-amping and these were ok. Replaced it after about a year with one that does and immediately noticed a huge difference in the quality of sound.
