Polk's Monitor Series has been the gold standard of speakers since the 1970's. The current generation Monitor 35B features high efficiency and compact design for open, spacious and clear sound even driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. Polk made the enclosures out of MDF to not resonate. They've also included ¾" thick baffles to help produce clear lifelike sound.

The 5.25" cone is made from bi-laminate composite for an optimal balance of weight and rigidity. The small driver delivers a wide open sound and exceptional responsiveness. The 1" tweeter is a fabric/polymer composite driver that responds swiftly to the high efficiency neodymium magnet. The crossovers between the drivers use Mylar bypass capacitors to let all of the details in the higher frequencies shine through.

No matter how good they sound, they have to look good too. Their contemporary look complements today's flat panel televisions and modern decorating styles.

  • newegg Exceptional Sound Quality The Polk Audio Monitor 35B boasts a 5.25" Bi-Laminate composite dynamic balance drivers and a 1" dynamic balance silk/polymer composite dome tweeter to deliver crisp highs and accurate lows for an immersive listening experience.
  • newegg Dual 5-way binding post connectors Dual 5-way binding post connectors allows for more secure hook-up options, as well as bi-wiring and bi-amping flexibility.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat sound

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: great clear and crisp sound. of course u could buy better but for the price its an easy steal... I have them hooked up right now with a polk sub and they go great together. i'd recommend getting a sub with these speakers just to get your deep lows that they leave out but that's what to expect when buying loudspeakers... lol

Cons: hmmmm.... none yet...

Other Thoughts: defiantly invest in a good AVR... that's how your gonna get good sound with these babies or any speaker that is lol I had an old denon avr but upgraded to a harmon/kardon and boy what a difference!

5 out of 5 eggsMonitor 35B Loudspeakers

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: I love these speakers. I replaced my Sony rebuilt speaker with these. We noticed that the speakers being ported in the back give these speakers a lower range than non-ported. The range of frequency is excellent for price and I recommend them.

Cons: There really are no cons on these. Except you may want to add banana plugs at the end of your wires to connect these speakers for ultimate speaker experience without power loss.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little speaker for home theater and audio

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: Nicely compact, rear ported for effeicency, I have mine connected to a Denon AVR home theater receiver and they are performing quite well. I also connected them to a vintage Kenwood KR-4400 receiver and they sounded quite nice on some cds that I tried.

Cons: I wish they were still made by the original company but time marches on.

Other Thoughts: I picked up the Polk subwoofer PSW121 to match up with them and so far life has been good.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: It came un broken

Cons: Polk Audio is now a holding company. Quality lower than whale dung. Shined a flash light into rear port to see inside and appears to be sloppily glued together with hot glue. Claim to be MDF board but mounting them on stands for rears looked like plastic sawdust. Avoid "NEW" Polk and find older "TRUE" Polk before holding company.

Other Thoughts: The whole holding company for Polk Audio needs to re think their agenda. They are ruining the Polk sound and reputation. I owned a audio company untill the economy died. Polk Audio was my best seller and were featured in the listening room. Can no longer recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: Sound amazing for the price! After owning these for a few weeks I decided that adding a small sub would help with some of the "depth" that these speakers lacked in my large room. Ended up getting the Polk PSW10 from newegg. Very nice sounding 2.1 setup for very cheap. WTG Polk and Newegg!

Cons: I really dont like the shape of the speaker covers. They dont look very nice...I wish they didnt curve down at the bottom, but instead were a plain rectangle like most of Polks other bookshelf speakers.

Other Thoughts: I bought these on newegg for $149. Next day they went down to $109 (ouch). I contacted newegg and even though the do not offer any price protection they refunded $25! Very happy with Newegg and Polk.

Heres the setup:

SONY STR-DH520 Receiver (from newegg, good buy)
Polk 35B
Polk PSW10 Sub

5 out of 5 eggsPolk Monitor 35B

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: Using them in stereo,
Voices sound fantastic Women’s voices sound really clear and warm unlike my T15’s, Men’s voices have a decent sound to them watching Walking dead has a nice Kick in the beginning when it says “Previously on Amc’s the walking dead”
You can here every bit of information on these on shows such as footsteps and birds in the back ground saying that these will be excellent back, side or height speakers.
Mid’s sound great and are not muddy and the bass ends at 60hz like the specs say and you should put the crossover at 80hz anyways if it’s in option and at the end of the day its still a Bookshelf with a 5 ¼ inch driver.

Cons: Is it me or does this new Polk series have an ugly logo? I guess it’s not that bad

Other Thoughts: Right now I’m using these in Stereo but they will be used for backs soon.
I have the monitor 70’s for the front and the CS20 center and soon some Polk 505 subs.
Also I have the Pioneer 521-K receiver and I have that plugged into my PC using a HDMI.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound.

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 35B Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair

Pros: Best bang for the buck bookshelf speaker. I have these powered from my Onkyo TX-SR605 on my PC. They handle high volume levels really well without distortion. Listening to FLAC audio makes it feel like you are at the concert.

Cons: I wish the low end could be improved a little, but you can't expect too much out of a small bookshelf speaker like this.

Other Thoughts: I'm using a BIC Acoustech H-100 subwoofer, so it makes up for the lows. The system rocks my house. ;)
