This review is from: Polk Audio New Monitor 75T Four-Way Ported Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Cherry) Single
Big Bass Is Available
Need more power than your AVR to produce bass
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 :)
