5 out of 5 eggsSounds good to me

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: OK I'm not a hardcore home theater audiophile. So if you're some sort of home theater genius go easy on me. I added this center channel to an existing 2.1 setup. (I'm slowly building a nice 5.1 setup.)

The only thing I've noticed is the additional bass it added to my setup - which is cool. My setup is much louder thanks to this center.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Be warned... this is a large center channel enclosure. So if your have plans to mount it on a wall, be sure to pay attention to the dimensions and its weight.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speaker, better than BIC FH6-LCR

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: First off, not sure if it's magnetically shielded or not... but it hasn't affected my LCD Samsung TV nor the Onkyo TX-NR616, nor the Apple TV, all within a foot of this thing.
Most important thing: It's better than the BIC FH6-LCR. Sad truth, I bought the BIC hoping it would be better than the Polk CS2 at the time, and it worked, but I wanted to replace my computer's sound system's center channel (Yamaha HTiaB blah center) with it, so I ordered the 25C for $100. So not only was it cheaper, but better.
Better how? It was more clear, louder at the same volume, and overall, just sounded more "right". And I have nothing against BIC's horn tweeter. I have 4 Klipsch towers, the F-30s and F-20s, which I LOVE more than anything. This is simply just better than the BIC, and for around the same price.
The finish is superb, looks nice, matches the Klipsches as much as it needs to.
The grill goes completely into the slots, meaning when it's on it's almost completely flush with the front. That is very nice and makes sure it is very hard to break accidentally. Can't say enough about this great thing,

Cons: Nothing I can think of besides I think I like Polk's old logo and grill better, but that's not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: It's big, but not huge. Deeper than my BIC FH6-LCR, you'll need some space for this thing.
Made me go buy Polk Monitor 40s as well I was so pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Perfect complement to my Definitive Tech 450 fronts, Polk Monitor60 II surrounds, and Polk PSW10 sub (so not Timber matched per se, but it sounds very good). This appears to be the recent version of the highly rated Polk CS2 Series II center, with the speakers closer to the center than the CS2.

Cons: Big, and the faceplate/logo is not as good as the colorful and full-covered one on CS2.

Other Thoughts: This is a huge box and I was not sure how I was going to house it as I don't have space below the TV and no enclose above the TV either. I ended up installing a VESA ceiling mount on my TV, resting the front end of the 25C to the TV using strong mounting tape, and attaching the ceiling plate of the VESA mount to the 25C's back (with mounting tape to dampen vibrations). Firmly nested on top of my TV now, even though it looks outrageously bulky on a 46" TV. Ultra slim TVs may not give the luxury of doing this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Center

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: 1.) Sound
2.) Sound
3.) Sound
4.) Price (on sale)

Cons: None so far. Size might be a problem for some but I like the larger drivers.

Other Thoughts: I bought this Polk to replace a BIC America FH6-LCR that I bought on that "other site" about 3 years ago. The BIC had overall very good reviews but as someone else said in one review that "no real care was taken in voicing this speaker. It's just a bunch of drivers thrown into a box." They seem to be nice drivers but very peaky in their response. This Polk sounds very "high-end" by comparison. When I seen these on sale I jumped at the chance to get one at a comparable price to the BIC. The timbre of the Polk is a much better match for my old "old-school" mains making for a much more pleasent listening experience. The BIC was outstanding for movie dialogue but at the expense of it's frequency response. Between the horn and the uneven response it is harsh sounding when listening to music. I am looking forward to listening again with this Polk (wish I could afford a set of 75T's).

4 out of 5 eggsNOT MAGNETICALLY SHIELDED!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Great Sound, design , etc

Cons: NOT MAGNETICALLY SHIELDED! Some sites provide the wrong information - they write that it is shielded!

Beware if you are using it near CRT TV (or maybe even portable HD?). Its "powerful neodymium magnet " (from Polk website description) also creates extremely powerful magnetic filed - even 2 ft from CTR causes the picture to distort

And very very high and deep - watch out to plan its placement before buying - no refunds/returns!

Other Thoughts: Newegg should provide customers with information on this issue

5 out of 5 eggsoutstanding !

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: I upgraded my MONITOR II series to T-75 fronts
I had been using T- 60s (now rears) with a CS 2 center
The 25C is fantastic and an absolute requirement
to compliment and get the best out of the 75s
Got a super price from NEWEGG on special sale

Cons: N O N E

Other Thoughts: They are worth the current sale price $199.99

5 out of 5 eggs10 x 21.2 x 8.2 inches

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 25C Two-Way Center Channel Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Sounds amazing!! I could not be happier with the quality of sound coming from this center channel.

Cons: I can see how the size could be a con to some buyers. Measure where you plan on placing this giant box. Or you will not be happy when you have to return it or replace your home entertainment center.

This is the correct measurements.

10 x 21.2 x 8.2 inches
