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 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, modern Titanium 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. The CS2 center speaker has been designed to be the perfect match for Monitor Series speakers in multi-channel systems.

  • newegg High Efficiency Design High efficiency design allows the Polk Audio CS2B to reveal the classic Polk Audio sound (open, spacious and clear) even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. Five-way binding post connectors allow for more secure hook-up options.
  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Polk Audio CS2B boasts two 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 CS2B features non-resonant all-MDF enclosure construction with ¾"-thick baffles to ensure cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality. 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 CS2B can be put at any proximity to display devices such as TVs and LCD monitors without loss of sound quality caused by interference. Reversible-design cabinets can be turned upside down to aim “up” when placed under a video monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat center

Pros: Bought to complete my surround setup. Great center, clear, and creates a nice sound stage with the other polk towers

Cons: it is pretty big, but that isn't really a bad thing if you have space for it.

Other Thoughts: Polk monitor 70 front towers, 60 back, and this for the center makes a nice surround setup. Paired with two of the polk 12' subs and my house is a heck of a theater.

5 out of 5 eggsNice center channel

Pros: Sounds great with two pair of Monitor 40s and an old Infinity subwoofer, driven by a Yamaha HTR 4065. Dialog sounds clear and natural.

Cons: It may be too large for some cabinets -- it barely fit in ours.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Very good sound for home theater. Used with Monitor60s also purchased at Newegg. Not a big fan of center channel and usually drive it down a bit but with some adjustments to Yamaha Receiver I like it.

Cons: Perhaps more sound from a box (directional) than old premium Radio Shack speaker it replaced. After making advanced adjustments to Yamaha receiver this is mostly gone now.

Large.

Other Thoughts: Newegg has good price on these.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk cs2

Pros: Range of sound

Cons: Size could be an issue

Other Thoughts: The CS2 does not disappoint, deep bass and nice highs. I have mine teamed with polk 75t and psw12 up front and bose 161's and psw10 in the rear and the experience is awesome. I may not be an audiophile but this set up blows away friends and family. And a big reason is the CS2. Its nice because you can tilt it upwards if you place it below your tv to send the sound towards the viewer, nice touch.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Center Channel

Pros: The sound is fantastic out of this thing. It produces voices very well. That was the main reason for adding the surround sound was to separate the sounds and still hear the voices.

Cons: Size. Look at the measurements, this thing is not small. If you are coming from a surround sound in a box, this is probably going to be MUCH larger than what you have. I would still get it, just be aware.

Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic speaker at the price.

4 out of 5 eggssounds good for its price

Pros: I have a 7.1 set up driven by Pioneer Elite VSX 44 receiver. This completes my 4 in wall Polk surround speakers, 2 Polk Monitor 60 floor standing speakers and a 10" Klipsch subs. I have the Samsung 65 curved 4k TV. Took me a while to pull the trigger because of the known huge size of this puppy. So far it lives up to its hype. Makes the vocals crystal clear. If not for the $99 sale price I probably will not buy it due to its awkward dimensions. I'd probably go with high performance in wall center ch though more pricier.

Cons: Could not replicate the finest highs like my Bose speakers in my media room does. If you wanted a flush or cleaner look in your set up, this speaker may not be for you due to its size. I solved mine by mounting it over the TV using Pinpoint center speaker brackets.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Neighbors Hated Me...

Pros: This speaker is amazing. It looks great and feels great and sounds amazing.

I live in a Condo and I have two Klipsch F-30's powered by my BI Amped Denon AVR x3000.

I live my life with the remote in my hand and my thumb on the volume down button because when I have my movie on a comfortable volume (Usually Volume Level 60) and something happens in the movie like an explosion or someone walks into a club, my living room turns into a bomb site or a Trance Disco Tech.

My Neighbors hate me.

Now, I can actually listen to my movies on Volume level 40 and hear every word, every pebble move, every rain drop hit the windshield without louder scenes causing the neighbors to pound my walls like mental patients in a padded room.

My Neighbors hated me. Now they don't.

Cons: I don't have ANY cons to report but just to mention, it's a monster in size.. Man this thing is big.. No joke.

Other Thoughts: I got this thing for 59.00 with Free Shipping - Amazing deal, I am upset with myself for not getting it sooner.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: great presence and sensitivity. great price.

Cons: lacks a tad in the highs department for music.

Other Thoughts: I know so many have said already but..it really is humongous .Pictures show it by itself or against a 50+ inch tv.I knew how wide and deep it was,but it's also very high.Wow.It sure made a big difference watching those (grr) whispering dialog scenes.20 centers aren't gonna make low,low dialog be heard but if any one can,this is it.If you can make room for it, I'ld recommend it at under 130.00.For music it does lack a tiny bit of highs.Got this direct from polks site.The 90 sensitivity is no lie,my receiver set it at -6 ! Talk about presence .. this bad boy will stand up, slap your face, and let you know who's boss .
