      *I reviewed the Subwoofer earlier. After I put the sub on I knew I needed some mid range. THIS SPEAKER IS NO JOKE. I had the T-15 bookshelfs for some movies and they worked pretty good. I added the sub and this T-30 speaker and now it is amazing. Crank up some freaky Floyd, Rolling Stones "Some Girls", Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs", Ten Years After "Cricklewood Green" or some Stevie Ray Vaughan and you will be thanking me. I could probably add a graphic equalizer and blow my socks off. The sound is amazing with just an old Kenwood receiver. I am going to add a couple of T-50's just because I like to freaking rock. I will rock, I will roll, and when I buy those T-50's I will write another review just for you. This is a great value. I am a believer in Polk Audio. So should you be. Whosoever heareth the glorious sounds which cometh forth from yonder stereo shall in no wise be cast out. It is written in the Book of Books that all who make sweet music and hearkeneth to the sounds shall be glad this day. Yea hath IWannaRock said. Amen.

      I'm a newbie in sound system, but before I purchased this product I made sure to search for reviews and feedback that people gave online. It was on sale and it was one of the cheapest that I found, with good reviews I decided to purchase this product. At first I thought it's just one of those products that look good but produces very poor sound. When my roommate and I tested it with our bose speakers connected to the new amp, we were blown away with the quality of sound this speaker produced. Dialogues during our movie watching became very clear and music playing became more lively and entertaining. Polk Audio center speaker gives that quality sound that complements the quality of our bose speakers, we're actually very happy with it.

      The speaker that saved our marrage

      It drives my wife crazy how I turn up the volume to hear conversations and than some big loud noise happens and she tells me to lower the volume. In fact, she used to keep the remote in her hand, so she could control the volume. I purchase the Polk center speaker to match other Polk products we have. The speak has made all the difference in the world. My receiver (also purchased at Best Buy) provides the option to have different volumes for speakers, so I was able turn the center up and the other speakers down. The quality of the speaker is awesome for the low price. Now my wife and relax when we watch action packed movies. We don't miss those conversations and don't worry about waking the kids with the loud explosions. Thank you Polk and Best Buy!

      The Onkyo center speaker I was previously using was not very strong in the midrange, and the dialogue would get lost in the background noise. No amount of AV Receiver tweaking could fully overcome the issue. I have some hearing loss in voice frequencey range which further complicates the issue. After much research I decided to try this Polk center speaker. The difference was immediately noticeable. It provides a full, rich sound while also providing crystal clear dialogue. I was able to lower my AVR gain settings for the center speaker, and I can also watch shows at an overall lower volume level than before (which my family appreciates). Can't say enough good about this center speaker. Very satisfied.

      We had a 4-channel entertainment system hooked up to our television which worked great for many years. It included a great sub-woofer. The only problem was that our old system didn't have a channel for a center speaker and voices were sometimes hard to hear. Our 4 speakers and sub-woofer were fine, we just needed a receiver with the additional center channel and add a good center speaker. We went with a nice Onkyo 7.2 receiver and added this Polk center speaker. Everything works great! Now we can hear voice and dialog and don't have to have closed captioning turned on for every program. I know you could spend more, but this speaker appears well built and seems to do the job quite well.

      Very good sound for the money

      I had to replace a $300 Boston Acoustics center channel speaker that I bought a few years ago as a complete set of Boston speakers. I saw the reviews for this speaker both here on the Best Buy site and elsewhere, and saw a consistent pattern for most reviews that this speaker is quite good, especially for the asking price. It was on sale at Best Buy recently so I decided to take a chance. After calibrating the speaker using the Audyssey feature on my receiver, it does in fact sound great, and provides a consistent sound stage across the front three speakers. I am using this with a Denon receiver with an advertised 105W x 7 in a 20 x 14 foot room with a 12 foot ceiling. Fills the room nicely. I do recommend this to anyone who would like very good sound for not a lot of money.

      I purchased this speaker for my 5.1 Surround Sound audio system, and it works even better than I expected it to. If you have an A/V receiver, but you're just taking advantage of your usual Right and Left Stereo speakers, this product is a MUST. You become more immersed in the content you are watching, and the center channel speaker allows for film's music, action, and sound effects to take advantage of those Right and Left speakers, and not overpower the dialogue of the film. If you enjoy movies, invest in this product, because it allows you not just to watch movies, but really experience them.

      Perfect way to upgrage My Samsung Home Theater

      Posted

      I have a 1000 watt Samsung Blue ray home theater system, but I have never been happy with the sound and voice quality of the cheap center speaker that came out of the box. I read online about others with this same problem buying this higher end center speaker. When I went to Best Buy the sales guy didn't think this speaker would work on my Samsung system, but for the sales price of $65 and the ability to return it, I thought it was worth a try. Well the good news it worked perfectly and it has made one HUGE difference in sound quality. My inexpensive home theater system now sound like a very expensive one. I may now look into buying the POLK side speakers and even upgrading my system more.
