This review is from: Polk Audio RM75 5 CH High Performance 5 Piece Surround System
As another reviewer said, these speakers are lacking in the lower midrange frequencies. You're never going to get a lot of bass from speakers this size, but there's no reason they should be so weak in the lower mids. I also thought the treble was weak. I was expecting great sound, but honestly these speakers sound to me like they're inside a cardboard box. The sound is just that flat. They are also very directional, as in you can tell exactly where the sound is coming from. Good speakers should make you forget they're even in the room. You should hear the music (or movie dialog/sound effects), not the speakers themselves.
These just weren't cutting it for me so I sold them and bought larger Polk Monitor Series II bookshelves and center channel from Newegg that I am WAY happier with. Polk generally makes good speakers but I think these are not one of them. They do seem very well made and are nice to look at, it's just too bad the sound is not up to par.
