    Listening to speaker after speaker in the various showrooms is a hassle. Once you get the speakers home they all sound good. I am over 60 and I’ve lost some hearing over the years, all of the conversations about hearing highs and lows are beyond me… I like what I like and I like these speakers. I bought the Polk S20 as my main L/R speakers and the Polk S30 for my center channel. I purchased the Polk PSW-108 for my subwoofer and I love this setup. As you can see I have a 3.1 speaker setup. If I’m missing something I don’t know it, in my home this system sees TV and movies; music is rarely played. Everything I have listened to sounds GREAT. All the comparing was grueling and I’m very satisfied with my choice.

    Perhaps the other reviewer didn't take the time to calibrate them to his set up? Well I took the time, adjusted the sound levels and distances, and I can say without a doubt these speakers are amazing. I have two pairs are my rear side, and rear back speakers. Two S60s for stereo and an S35 for my center. They all work in perfect harmony and all sound absolutely amazing. They all go very deep and very high. So deep in fact that I can leave my currently faulty subwoofer unplugged. I use them mostly for 7.1 surround sound gaming and movies.

    I tried out this entire line of bookshelf and center channel speakers in my 5.1 HT setup. At first I liked them, but then I decided to try some Klipsch Reference Premiere speakers (RP150M/RP450C) and within 5 minutes of hooking up the Klipsch had boxed up the Polks to return them back. Unimpressed when compared to something of higher quality. Do your homework and spend just a bit more money, you won't be disappointed. Polk Signature are entry level speakers. You can do a lot better for just a small amount more money, and have many more options (e.g, Klipsch Reference Premiere Lineup has Dolby Atmos options, surround speakers, multiple bookshelf, centers, subwoofer, and floorstanding options that are all timber matched).

    I got these speakers to go in a home theater. I exchanged them for the S15 solely because I couldn't find a way to mount these on the back wall and would have needed to build a shelf to set them on. The S10 and S15 models are mountable. The S15's require a single screw in a stud and sound great.
