Classic performance is redefined.

Polk's Monitor Series has been the gold standard of speakers since the 1970's. The new Polk Audio Monitor series is a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. Among the new Monitor series speakers, the Monitor 15C is a high efficiency center channel speaker which delivers more detailed high frequency response for more realistic imaging. The heavy duty enclosure is reversible for more flexible placement options above or below your television. The Monitor 15C is available with black and cherry wood grain finish, with titanium faces. The stylish look complements today’s flat screen technology.

  • newegg Multiple small-diameter driver design The Monitor 15C is equipped with three small-diameter drivers (one 1-inch dome tweeter and dual 5 1/4-inch midrange drivers). This design delivers wide dispersion, better mid-range, and more detailed bass response for an open, "box-less" three-dimensional sound. Plus, crossovers use Mylar bypass capacitors for more detailed high frequencies.
  • newegg Enclosure enables greater sound and flexible placement Non-resonant all-MDF enclosure construction with 3/4-inch thick baffles ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality. Enclosure is reversible for optimal placement above or below your television screen.
  • 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.
  • newegg Prolonged lifetime All Polk products pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsRidiculous!!

Pros: This is slightly beastly in size, but size is meaningless compared to quality. Never in my life had I the need to turn down center speaker. Center always outpowered by towers etc. Not in this case.

Cons: Size, weight. about 1/3 the size of tall tower speaker

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great center channel, really brings the dialogue out in movies. The sound quality is incredible, crystal clear with everything I throw out it from gaming, movies, to all genres of music.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Using this with a pair of Monitor 60 II's, a BIC America F12, on a yamaha 5.1 receiver.

Couldn't be happier with my setup, and have had dozens of compliments from people coming over who are blown away by the quality of Polk speakers.


One thing I will say, if you're going quality on your equipment do NOT skimp on your wire. The difference is night and day when using cheap off brand wire vs something like Monster.

5 out of 5 eggsDesigned to be with a sub

Pros: Excellent mids and highs. Great for movies and video games.

Cons: I live in an apartment so I didn't buy a sub with it. You can tell that they were designed to be with a sub. I bought a five channel surround and my headphones put out twice the bass. They still sound great though. I just need to buy a house and get a sub.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Lifelike voices. Good sound while listening to music.

Cons: HUGE SPEAKER!!!

Other Thoughts: I like this speaker very much. I have a smaller set of Polks for the front left and right. I saw this on Newegg.com and the price was right.
I'm very pleased with this purchase

5 out of 5 eggsSounds great!

Pros: So far so good, I needed a new center speaker to match my polk monitor 60. I paid $80 shipped and that was the best price for any center speaker in that range. They seem to match the system well, I have no complaints.

Cons: These are huge ! like everyone else I read that they were big but was still shocked at the size when they arrived.

Speaker is roughly 7" high, 8" deep and like 18" wide. I just used a dollar bill and roughly estimated.

5 out of 5 eggsGood speaker matchs my other Polks

Pros: Nice price good looking and sounds good. I read some say its big and that scared me a little but I don't think is too big and it doesn't call attention to itself. I really enjoy watching movies at home now

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsIt's big, but worth it!

Pros: The price.
It sounds amazing.
It looks as good as it sounds.

Cons: It's ridiculously large.

Other Thoughts: This thing is huge. For reference, I have a Yamaha RX-V473 (17-1/8” W x 6-3/8” H x 12-3/8” D) and the 15C is both wider and taller than that. Don't buy this beast without first considering how you're going to park it. To illustrate how important that advice is, I had to take the size of this speaker into consideration when looking for a new TV bench/entertainment center. Size wasn't just a factor; it was a primary concern.

Chronic gigantism notwithstanding, the 15C sounds amazing. I upgraded from a small, old Kenwood home theater set and I was floored by the vast performance improvement the moment I heard this baby sing. If you want a phenomenal home theater experience, you can't go wrong with this speaker.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speaker

Pros: Sounds great, voices are crystal clear.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my Polk CS1 since I had pulled the trigger on 2 of the new Polk Monitor 75T and wanted the speakers to be uniform. Was going to get the 25C but the dimensions made it such that I had to go with the 15C as I barely had clearance for it let alone the 25C which was almost an inch taller. Comparing it to the cs1, it's slightly better but I'm not entirely sure it's much better than it but I'm still in the break in period.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Center!!!

Pros: Sounds great, looks great, great value. A nice match with the other new Polk Monitor speakers that use the 5.25" drivers. High quality construction. Everything sounds full, crisp & clear.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I am really happy with this purchase. I bought this to go with the 45B bookshelf speakers I ordered, and everything sounds awesome all hooked up. I thought about getting the 25C but figured the 5.25" drivers would be a better match for the 5.25" drivers in the bookshelf's. If you have the floor standing speakers with the 6.5" drivers then you probably want the 25C to match. It's definitely not a con, but this center is kind of big compared to a lot of others. Make sure you check the dimensions before you order to make sure this size will work for you. I highly recommend the 15C and you won't be disappointed with the sound or build quality.
