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.

This 4-way ported speaker is the flagship of the high performance Monitor Series. Its multi-driver design and non-resonant enclosure delivers the classic Polk sound (open, spacious and clear), even when driven by modestly-powered amplifiers and receivers. Its size guarantees a bold, realistic audio experience whether you’re building an extreme home theater or a sensitive stereo system.

  • 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. Four 6 1/2-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.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Vaule!

Pros: Nice soundstage, very good value.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Having owned Polk Audio Speaker before (LSi-15 line the whole line) Got these will cause I know Polk makes a good speaker for not a whole lot of money. Are there better speakers out there? sure they are. I have owned the M70,s before and these are every bit as good.. Running these on an Onkyo TX-NR818 it does a nice job of opening these up like I said the soundstage is really nice on these 75T,s I also have the 15T center and the 45T,s in a 5.1 surround with a 10" sub. Don't get what some people are saying they don't but out a lot of bass?. The bass is very good mids and highs are really nice (clean) Polk got this one right. New Eggs service is outstanding. Shipping was also very good (UPS).

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value and Quality

Pros: Full range speakers, excellent highs, mids and base. Great sound separation and range at all volume levels. Great deep sound Polk is known for. Some say they are big and heavy, but I like the tower look and the construction is solid.

Cons: The "Cherry" is a very light tone, not a deeper cherry like mahogany so if you are matching up colors, it is more like scandanavian teak than cherry. I would have gone with the black if I had seen them before ordering online.

Other Thoughts: I bought these just before xmas, they came in two days, New Egg upgraded shipping for free and they were a great price. One leg came damaged, no problem, Newegg sent me one overnight and I got it next day (Xmas eve!!), great service.
My setup is a Yamaha 773 7.1 receiver, Martin Logan Center, Polk 75T fronts(not beamed) , and Cambridge Audio in wall rear speakers in a large two story family room.

Well, after hooking them up and playing them for all kinds of music, TV and movies, I have to say I really enjoy them. I listen to a wide variety of music from Maroon 5 to James Taylor to classical and country. They have a full spectrum of sound, crystal clear highs from the tweeter, mids and vocals are great, base is excellent as well. Strings and guitar are crisp and clear, very well isolated, kids are rich and base is full where needed. I used the YPAO setup from Yamaha and it adjusts all of the levels to the listening area in about 3 minutes, a really great feature. I've played them at moderate levels initially, then really cranked them up, zero distortion and a very full spectrum of sound, more than enough for a 20 x 30 room. After a few weeks of break in I did notice that I could play them at a much lower level on the receiver and get more output, so it appears they do break in over a few weeks of playing them. Unless you have over $1K to spend on B&W or other really high end brands, I can't imaging getting more for your money at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound and looks beautiful

Pros: Sound, apperance, quild quality.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: These were delivered on 2013/12/20 and I hooked them up as soon as I got home and let me tell, they sound fantastic. They replaced the front RM7’s and what a huge difference in sound. They make watching movies more fun and entertaining. In addition to its sound quality, the POLK Monitor 75T (Cherry) looks beautiful and compliments any home décor; take the grill off and it looks even better. Powering these with an Onkyo TX-SR707 in a 3.2 set.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speakers!

Pros: Bought these a few months ago, been very pleased so far. Rich sound. Some people claimed they didnt have much bass but, in my opinion, they must not be running enough juice into them. Delivered in perfect condition. Do not hesitate looking at the 'feet' of the speaker, they stand up straight.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Using a Onkyo NR-616 deck

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!

Pros: Beautiful cabinets, the cherry looks great. Sound is great! I have a sub which helps. I have not run these without the sub. My receiver supports a bi-amp configuration which I used with these speakers. It seems to really help with the low freqs.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: There is a lot of debate of bi-amplification but I think it does make a difference.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Choice!

Pros: Sound great and look great. Plenty of bass. Vocals sound like they are in the room with you.

Cons: Two days after I bought them the price dropped $20.

Other Thoughts: So many reviewers complained of a lack of bass with these speakers but I don't agree. I have a 2 channel, 100 wpc receiver powering them and they sound great. The louder it plays the better they sound.

5 out of 5 eggsBass Response

Pros: Big Bass Is Available

Cons: Need more power than your AVR to produce bass

Other Thoughts: I love reading the variety of reviews here. Some are spot on, some are, well.......

If these 75T's are ANYthing like the Monitor 70's, they will give you good thumping bass.

Before I upgraded to the RTiA series, I owned the Monitor Series II with the M70's as mains.

I sold my entire 7.0 Monitor set up to a local in my area and as he came over to demo the speakers, I made sure he was aware that IF they didn't sound "this good" when he got them home, it was due to the power I was feeding them.

The big boy Monitors thrive on power to perform to their potential. When run on my Onk 807 (135wpc @ 2ch driven), the M70's would sound like most of the reviews here. When I added an XPA-3 (200wpc amp), the M70's responded with good bass response. When I demoed the M70's with an XPA-2 (300wpc), the buyer was quite relieved he didn't have a sub yet as the M70's put out bass felt in the floor (set at full range).

Under powering a speaker can result in clipping and even damage it or worse yet, damage your equipment as well. Over powering the speaker (in the case of the Polks) can and will produce the sound you had hoped for in the beginning.

So the final word here, if you think this speaker doesn't produce bass, try applying some "real" power to it, then feel free to go back and modify your review :)

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.

Pros: Inexpensive & fast delivery.. appears to be a lot of speaker for the price. The crossovers networks are high quality and well made. My son is using the 75T's in his room and likes them for listening to Rap and R&R. But Rap would be high quality even on a tiny boom box speaker.

Cons: I bought 4 of these 75T speakers thinking about using them as surround sound and maybe even the main speakers if they were good enough. We have 3 listening rooms and are using Polk LSI-15's in the main living room. The LSI-15 are great speakers with amazing audio quality. But when we hooked up the 75T, the first thing noticed is there was no bass and using high quality reference recordings, we were unable to hear the individual orchestra instruments. Like the 4way crossover networks on the 75t dont have enough frequency overlap.

Other Thoughts: We will be using these 75t as the rear spkr's in surround sound for now.. But I plan to rewire these boxes for 3way crossovers as used in the Polk TSI-500 series. To see if I can improve the bass and mid range capability.

5 out of 5 eggsworks for me

Pros: well balanced highs and mids. Very very articulate at all volume levels. Natural tone no coloring.
Furniture grade finish on cherry. Nice for the wife.

Cons: no bass at all. No surprise as there is no bass driver. Thier tech writer should be fired. It's a great system once you realise this.

Other Thoughts: I know what 40 hz + or - 3 db sounds like. You will need to buy the matching bass if you want to hear any low end out of these. . I'm driving with an Onkyo 65 watt per channel in stereo for a theater system in a small room does the job at a purr or cranked. Just don't over drive the sub. Get a good balance for a wonderfull system. I've got about 4 systems at home and this one is realing surprising me .
