Polk Audio Monitor Series New Monitor 55T Two-Way Ported Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
  • Total Frequency Response: 42Hz-25kHz
  • Upper -3dB Limit: 24 kHz
  • Lower -3dB Limit: 52 Hz
  • 8 Ohms 20-150 watts per channel

Pros:

The volume is okay for most of my needs and I think they look great. Polk has absolutely fantastic cust service. The sound is nice and bright. Great for music.

Cons:

They have very little bass / low end. I have these hooked up with a 12" sub-woofer, and I still don't think these have enough bass because it's not the full sound spectrum one should expect from a tower speaker. They do get loud enough for my needs, but actually not as loud as I would have expected them to. I am pushing them @ 100 Watts per, so I guess if I gave them more power I would get more out of them.

Other Thoughts:

I got these on sale for $70 each here at Newegg. They are not bad for the price. Overall, I wish I had purchased a larger set (like the Klipsh F-20's that went on sale for $90 the day after I purchased these) for those times when I want the movie really loud, and I know they put out a "fuller" sound. I have these as my front L / R. They would be perfect for the rear speakers if that is what you are looking for.
Of note: One grill was slightly cracked; I called Polk, they shipped me a new one right away, and included another one for backup (they retail for $35 ea). That's 2 new grills at no cost. Right on Polk!
