Don't Be Fooled By The Hater Reviews On Here Posted by: from: FL on alright... i do audio production from home and sometimes in a studio setting. i have used very expensive bi amplified studio monitors and i have used expensive HiFi speakers recently and i have found that most people listen to music on cheap home audio anyways.. so you need something in the middle! you need to mix with speakers that reflect the sound accurately but also that represent the way a home speaker might sound as well in order to have a good all around mix. these speakers are exactly that! paired with a decent amount of power from a decent amp and you have a cheap set of decent reference monitors. i am very satisfied with these speakers. they have improved the overall quality of my mixes! * BY THE WAY* TO ALL THOSE THAT THINK THESE SPEAKERS SOUND MUDDY OR TINNY OR WHATEVER.. YOU HAVE TO LET THE SPEAKERS BURN IN!! YOU MUST LET THE SPEAKERS PLAY AT A DECENTLY LOUD VOLUME FOR LIKE 40 HRS BEFORE BEING ABLE TO PASS JUDGEMENT ON THESE SPEAKERS.

Great Surround Speaker Posted by: from: Rochester, NY on I first purchased the T15 a couple of years ago because they sounded really good in the BB Store and they just fit perfectly into the Headboard in my bedroom. I connected them to a Pioneer VSX 1020K receiver for my Surrounds. Since then I have been really happy with them, so much so, that when I recently purchased a new Pioneer Elite VSX53 receiver for my living room and needed some surrounds, it was a no Brainer, the Polk T15's! So I have two pairs of these Speakers...Give them a listen and see what you think. Are they as Great as my new Bowers & Wilkins' 685's, of course not, but they also do not cost over $600.00 a Pair and I am using them as Surrounds. I would not use them for my Main L&R speakers in my living room (that's what my B&W 685's are for) but for Surrounds and possibly a Bedroom Main L&R, you could do a lot worse! In the proper use, I really like these little Speakers! They will take the biggest Surround Crashes, Pop's, Booms as well as subtle background nuances and just keep coming back for more!

Smooth and pleasant Posted by: from: on Bought four of these little fellows to serve as front and surround satellite speakers, along with two other speakers and a Klipsch subwoofer in a 6.1 surround system (using a Sony STR-DH750 7.2 surround receiver). These little speakers produce a warm, balanced, and detailed sound, that is very pleasant on the ears and produces absolutely no listener fatigue. After taking off the grille of one of them when playing at a loud volume, I observed the woofer pumping away with quite a bit of excursion for such a small driver. This observation, along with the tight, punchy sound the Polks were emitting, makes me believe that even if used without a powered subwoofer, these little guys could produce very nice bass for bookshelf speakers. The soft dome tweeter is unbelievably pleasant on the ears, yet detailed, and the woofer is very tight and punchy.

Great little speakers Posted by: from: on I am using these speakers on my newly revived turntable setup. My system consists of a small 25W amp, a nice tube preamp and my 30 year old Bang & Olufsen 2404 turntable. These speakers are perfect for the job. They sound nice, since my system has no tone control whatsoever, they faithfully reproduce the real sound of the albums, sometimes with astounding clarity. They have some bass, but you may still need a subwoofer, because they are bookshelf speakers and will not produce chest pounding thump. I also have a pair on my home theater system for the "high" speakers. They also sound great for this role. No distortion and we play movies quite loud. I'm quite pleased with these little inexpensive speakers and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. A lot of bang for the buck.

Excellent for the $ Posted by: from: on I bought these and hooked them up to a Sherwood receiver, which is connected to my TV, DVD and iPod. The sound is good from my TV and excellent from my DVD and iPod. With my TV they fill in the base making listening more enjoyable. You will need a sub woofer to get the thumping lows from some movies. With my DVD and iPod listening to music the sound is excellent. I ran a frequency sweep to test these speakers. You can begin to hear base at 40 Hz. At the rated 60 Hz you can hear good base. These are excellent bookshelf speakers for the price!

very happy with my choice Posted by: from: on having moved and no Frontier I wanted to listen to my radi. A very nice receiver was given to me but no speakers. I initially went to best by and purchased as set of desk top speakers but I was very disappointed. I had heard some positive reports on the Polk speakers so I returned to Best Buy and picked up a set of Polk and hooked to puppies up....YAHOOO!!! For the amazing price that I was able to purchase those speakers for the return in sound and performance was beyond amazing. Thank you best buy

I'm impressed. Posted by: from: Houston, TX on These Polks replaced a pair of RCAs with 12" woofers. Big deep bass was not expected out of them-that's what subwoofers are for. I have a powered sub and did not need those huge speakers anymore. My setup is stereo, not surround sound or home theater-receiver is just 2 channels and puts out 75 watts/channel.. I was worried about them not having enough mid bass, but there's nothing to worry about at all. They have almost as much as the big monsters they replaced! The mids and highs sound great. Right now they're sitting on top of the other speakers about 3 feet above the ground. I can't wait until I get some brackets to hang them on the wall-probably sound even better. Some bookshelf speakers are very pricey-several hundred dollars. But these sound great at this entry level price point. Later I'll get another pair to replace the Pioneers with 8" woofers, hang all of them on the wall, and have more space in this cluttered room. Wanna see some good pics-click on these Photobucket links.

Great for surround spires or small stereo Posted by: from: on Nice bookshelf speakers, or they work efficiently for surround. Easy to display or mount on wall. Great sound when compared with higher cost brands.

Amazing sound from little package Posted by: from: Anchorage, AK on Bought these bookshelf speakers and the matching 8" Polk subwoofer to replace my 10 year old Bowers & Wilkins 602s. It was not an easy decision to make, as the B&W speakers are some of the best out there and were hands down the best speakers I ever owned. But moving into a smaller house with a smaller TV room means the larger 602s were just too much to fit in the smaller (about 290 sq. ft. with 16' vaulted ceilings) space. Wow -- did I luck out with these. I spent an afternoon listening to the different bookshelf speakers & subwoofers at my local Best Buy and ended up selecting these Polk speakers and matching 8" sub. The sound in my new room couldn't be better. The speakers are very clear but still deliver enough of the lower-middle range that they don't sound "tiny" or "thin." When paired with the sub, smooth consistent sound fills the room no matter what the sound source. Highly recommend!!!

A great speaker for the price Posted by: from: Frederick MD on I bought this as rear surround speakers for my 7.1 home theater. My system is completely Polk, but the higher models. I figured during these times I could just get the cheaper T15 model and not have issues with it. They were replacing an older pair of infinity's that fell apart that I just never changed over to Polk with the rest of the system. I figured I had to get new ones so now was my chance to get all Polks. These are nice speakers for the price and I would recommend them. The bass lacks some and the volume isn't as high, but in general I was happy with these. Then I caught a deal on the TSi100 Polks for $50 bucks more. While I say the T15's hold their own, the TSi100's blow them away. There is a huge difference in sound between the two. So if you are interested in getting either, if you have or can save the extra money, get the TSi100's. You won't be disappointed at all. The TSi100's have great bass and detailed highs and seems to play slightly louder at the same volume level. You go from having a nice speaker, to having what sounds like a luxery speaker with the TSi100.
