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 eggsLast Piece to the puzzle complete

Pros: Price, Sound, it does for a 10 inch much more than I expected. I am adding another as my receiver is dual sub possible and it version of Synced.

Cons: None so far. I thought well I have other subs, is is a dual sub receiver. No,,,

Other Thoughts: Even lower end Polk Speakers, thankfully unlike only expensive products. If I had these on some 20K setup, I would surely drop a star You do not use this with that and we do not use with theirs. Very happy and look forward to stay mostly with a nice break in and then hope to rock the Video audio room

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the black Friday price

Pros: Awesome price (Black Friday pricing)
Great sound quality
Great mids and lows for a center speaker

Cons: None. Maybe size but that is not something that affected me.

Other Thoughts: I have a non-traditional home theater setup with 6 front facing wall mounted speakers. It's really setup more for atheistic purposes than overall sound performance. The problem I was having is that the speakers I had were giving me the right highs. Once you turned the system up to hear vocals the mids and lows became too over powering to hear anything. I bought this on a black Fri deal and I have to say I am extremely pleased. Size wasn't an issue for as I had space to accommodate. This center speaker brought the entire system together and is a night and day difference.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Voices sound natural and clear. Very efficient, you can watch TV at a very low volume and it still sounds excellent and the sound carries through out the room.

Cons: The enclosure is a little bigger than I thought it would be, but I guess that's why it sounds so good.

Other Thoughts: Excellent value for the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive Clarity - Minimal Cost

Pros: Exactly what your would expect from Polk - Crystal clear voices and realistic sound effects. The size is notable but expected with the 6.5" drivers. Couldn't be happier with this center channel. Compliments the Polk 65t floorstanding speakers very well. And as always Newegg shipped the speaker promptly / well packaged.

Cons: Nothing to say here.

Other Thoughts: Many have commented on the size of this center channel.... it has two 6.5" drivers so the size was exactly as I envisioned.

5 out of 5 eggsLarge speaker, large sound

Pros: Great range of sound
Greater price
Gets plenty loud for almost anyone

Cons: Large speaker, but these are 6.5" drivers so I don't know how this can really be a con since it's obviously large

5 out of 5 eggsGreat (bur large) center channel speaker!

Pros: Very clear audio, dialogue comes alive! If you can get this on sale, it's definitely worth getting.

Cons: None! It's fairly large, so make sure you have a good place for it.

Other Thoughts: Decided to pick this up on sale as I was upgrading my 5.1 surround setup with a new pieced together system. This replaced a very small, and very cruddy Yamaha center channel speaker. I was totally shocked by the size of the box when it arrived, this speaker was MUCH larger than I had expected. This ended up being the perfect match for my new system, couldn't be happier!
