5 out of 5 eggsAwesome speaker

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: REally nice looking and well made. Sounds really good, well pleased with it.

Cons: No cons

Other Thoughts: This is a large speaker, I had to build a little stand to get my tv up high enough as not to cover the bottom of the screen. So make sure you have room for it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid addition

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: Solid build quality - as expected
Excellent value for money

Cons: None. I haven't had an issue with this speaker.

Other Thoughts: Unless you are an absolute audiophile, you will not notice the difference between this model and the next step up unless you drive your system hard and often. I get the most out of this product when using it for music.

Disclaimer: I love turning up films LOUD during my favourite sequences. Many bluray offerings do not give a pure 'stereo' sound as a sound option, so if you're still doing a standard Left, Right, Center, Sub setup, be wary of getting this speaker as a center channel if you mostly use it for home audio in a movies-and-games context. Many modern systems expect you to have a 5.1 or higher setup to get the most out of their sound channels. If you're simply listening to a lot of music and this is part of your setup, then it is a very quality speaker in its price range.

Cons: bit large.

5 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: Good low end for DEEP VOICES. Pleasant mids and highs. Not as harsh as plastic tweeters. Matches well with Polk T-15 fronts and surrounds. When you consider how much signal comes though a center, it makes sense to go a little bigger. Slim cabinet. It's deep, but it fits my media center nicely. For $60 bucks, you could do a LOT worse. Thanks again, Newegg!

Cons: Nothing so far.

5 out of 5 eggsRemarkable Center Speaker

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: I scooped this up two weeks ago and it has been nothing short of fantastic. I have this paired with a Sony STR-710 and two Polk Audio tsi200 bookshelf speakers on a bi-amp connection. Movies and games sound clear, crisp, and not muddled.

Cons: My only complaint is the grill. It's a laced plastic all beneath the cloth. I wish Polk Audio had made the grill where the plastic pieces could be absent in front of the drivers and tweeters. Other than that, this was money well spent.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works and its big

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: Polk quality and excellent sound. Pairs great with Polk floor loudspeakers, I'm only running 3 speakers at the moment due to space and I can't imagine needing a sub. Well I can imagine it but I doubt my neighbors downstairs would appreciate it :-) Anyhow its a crisp center channel speaker that makes dialog stand out.

Cons: This speaker was LOT larger than I imagined and it wouldn't even fit in front of my TV and I didn't have the space in the unit below the TV so I got a shelf for above the TV. It looks pretty MANCAVEISH - which is not a con I guess :-) I'll get a new TV unit eventually and relocate it below the screen. Whatever it works and sounds great.

4 out of 5 eggsTake off the Speaker Grilles Off

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: Okay sound with the cloth speaker grilles on, muffled tweeter and highs.

Very good/ excellent with them off, well worth the money

Cons: Not going to get a lot of low bass out of these but that is understood. You need a subwoofer or forget it.

Other Thoughts: These are fine Center Channel speakers for Monitor 60 or 70, it isn't going to be playing low frequency anyway. the mid and tweeter is okay without covers.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single

Pros: Great Price. Good Sound, has a lot of bass, may have to adjust the center speakers volume or amps crossovers to adjust this. Definately loud. But for the price, I think it would be tough to beat this without paying 200 dollars more.

Cons: Seems to lack some clarity in the mid ranges, little bit muffled. Bass definitely dominates unless adjusted. Though the tweeter does its job well. But Im comparing it to my floor standing 3 ways that are much more expensive.
