The name "Monitor" adorned the speakers that first made Polk famous. Monitor means simple, sturdy construction, clear, accurate sound, powerful bass and superior imaging (all at a surprising price). This new Monitor 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 look that complements today's flat screen technology, with wood grain finishes and modern Titanium faces. Built for sound quality and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound.

The Polk Audio Monitor 55T is two-way ported floorstanding loudspeaker that delivers unprecedented performance with unforgettable style at unbeatable price. Its high efficiency design allows the speaker to reveal the classic Polk sound (open, spacious and clear) even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. This compact floorstanding model deals out the high performance audio in a smaller space, without sacrificing dynamics or soundstaging.

  • newegg Monitor-Grade Sound 1-inch (25mm) silk/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. Dual 5 1/4-inch composite Dynamic Balance drivers are lightweight and stiff with good damping for high efficiency, excellent bass and lower distortion. Multiple small-diameter driver design delivers wide dispersion, better mid-range, and more detailed bass response for an open, box-less, three-dimensional sound.
  • newegg Refined Bass Port 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 Finest Crossover Circuit Crossovers use Mylar bypass capacitors for more detailed high frequencies.
  • newegg Sophisticated MDF Cabinet Non-resonant all-MDF enclosure construction with 3/4-inch thick baffles ensures cleaner, clearer, more lifelike sound quality. Tower models feature additional front-to-back and side-to-side internal bracing for further reduced resonance.
  • newegg Top Class Construction Dual 5-way binding post connectors allow for more secure hook-up options, as well as bi-wiring and bi-amping flexibility.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value and Best Support

Pros: All I can say is it sound great. And customer support is excellent. What more you need! I can tell you lot of technical info but what good it make if it sound bad? I use this with Pioneer VSX-822 receiver and they produce wonderful sound. I have sub-woofer but I use it only for movies. Music sound best just with two of these speakers! And these look great in my living-room too!

Cons: Nothing!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent starters

Pros: Great, crisp highs and mids. Stylish and compact make for easy and attractive speaker placements

Cons: If anything, these speakers lack a little bass. They are the bottom tier of the monitor series, but they sound amazing overall. I have these speakers standalone right now with a denon receiver. I will be adding a subwoofer and center channel soon to fill out the room a bit. The bass ports on these speakers do allow for some decent low range, but not quite enough if they aren't accompanied by a sub.

Other Thoughts: Awesome starter speakers for those slowly building a home theatre or music listening room. Make for great fronts, have excellent highs and mids. Would be well complimented by a decent subwoofer, center channel, and perhaps the bookshelf speakers from Polk.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent speakers

Pros: great sound, good quality, attractive design, excellent value

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm using these as front speakers in my small 200 sq. ft. family room 6.1 home theater. They replaced a pair of ancient 70's vintage speakers that sounded good but had twice the weight and footprint, and several times the price, of these Polks. I was pleased to find that these sound just as good if not better than the old ones. There is no strain at any volume, just good rich sound in the range I needed. I like their design. The feet they stand on are rubber and don't scratch the floor, and they're easy to move around and clean under. The cherry finish is attractive and not flashy or gaudy. Quality appears good -- binding posts are sturdy, and the warranty is 5 years. For my particular needs these speakers are near perfect and I would recommend them to anyone.
