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 Pock Audio CS2C 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 CS2C 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 CS2C 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 CS2C 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 eggsnice!

Pros: Nice sharp voices in movies, no distortion. Cherry model looks nice. I was thinking of getting the klipsch center but didnt have a chance to listen to it.

Get this one on sale, for 100 cant beat it!

Cons: Not a con really, but very large as others have stated.

Other Thoughts: Matches perfectly with my m70's for 3.1 "surround"

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: It sounds better than the TV's speakers!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Why do speakers cost this much? Even at 50% of retail paying that much for a magnet glued to a particleboard box seams wrong somehow.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice...

Pros: Can't say enough about this center channel. After a few adjustment on my Yamaha A/V reciever, this center channel sings. I am very impress

Cons: haven't found any yet, I am hoping not too. So far So good

Other Thoughts: When I recieved this from ups....no damage what so ever. Very Happy

5 out of 5 eggsBig time presence

Pros: Strong, clear presence for a dedicated center channel signal. I got this to match with the Monitor 70's, as my old B**e center speaker was completely lost by the big Polks. The new combination creates a huge & powerful soundfield. Blends in well with other speakers while in 6ch stereo mode, too. Great deal from Newegg, as always.

Cons: Newegg doesn't list the dimensions. 22 x 12 x 8
It's rear ported, so be sure to provide some clearance.

Other Thoughts: Great bargin!

5 out of 5 eggsI know nothing about speakers

Pros: Amazing sound quality. I have it set up between some Monitor 60's. It is clearly much louder than those. I had to turn the 60's up a bit to match.

Cons: This thing is crazy big. I didn't realize it had 6.5" speakers or that is was over a foot deep. Dumb me didn't read all the details. I was planning on getting the CS1 but this was on sale. I thought it just had a higher wattage. My mistake but I'm keeping it.

Other Thoughts: Read all the details before buying. This thing on sale paired with a few Polk Monitors (also on sale) sound better than any 5.1 plastic speaker system you can buy for $500-3000.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Price!!! Very very good sound quality.

Cons: Other than the neighbors hate me, nada.

Other Thoughts: I had a cerwin vega center channel of the same type (6 1/2 drivers x2 1 tweeter) and I have to say that this sounds much better than the cerwin vega. I still love vega's but this center really does sound great. I played a 5.1 dvd audio disc of ELP's brain salad surgery and I was amazed at the clarity of the bass players bass coming threw the center and the highs were great to. I am using an adcom 555 for amplification and a rotel 1060 as a pre-amp (by the way I am using 2 adcom 555's for front, left, center and sub and an adcom 545 for the right and left rear) So it's being driven with quality equipment. For the price I would highly recommend this center channel and it doesn't really require a lot of wattage to bring up the volume. Great deal. Thanks newegg for the free shipping!!! A last thought, this thing is big, if size is an issue pass it buy and get the smaller one.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: This thing made a huge difference for my home theater.
Looks as good as it sounds.

POLK ROCKS!

Cons: As others have stated, size/weight might be an issue, but not for me since I measured ahead of time.

Other Thoughts: Specs:
TV: 42" LG Scarlett LCD
Receiver: Sony STR-DH810 7.1
Fronts: (2)Polk Monitor 60's BI-Amped
Center: Polk CS2 Series ii
Sub: Polk PSW505

*All purchased from NEWEGG!!!

5 out of 5 eggsCS2 II Center

Pros: Crystal Clear vocals in all dialog, great center channel for all home theater set ups and great value for price. Often can be too much if you don't have good front stage speakers to back up your highs and mid range, but terrific sound. Check for price breaks on holidays. Newegg delivered fast intact.

Cons: Note: Large and heavy, it will most likely not fit on most entertainment unit middle shelves unless its on top or mounted. Just do your measuring.
