    At first, I got the Sony tower speakers. Let me say this, yes the Sony’s towers are better. BUT what you get for your money go with the Polk system. I got the entire Polk system, excluding the bookshelf speakers, while they were on sale and I barely paid anything more. What do you want? Two tower speakers OR two tower speakers, a center channel, and a subwoofer. The entire system all together sounds amazing, and I already had two Polk bookshelf speakers that are still holding up from years ago. I’m very happy with my purchase!

    Replaced my old floor speakers with a pair of these Polk Audio 6.5 inch 2 way floor Speakers. Really liked how well they blended in with my Center channel and surround speakers along with a pair of powered KLH 8 inch subwoofers. Were a perfect match for my system. I have a Pioneer receiver that is a 7.1 surround sound receiver but I am using it in a 5.1 configuration pushing 105 watts RMS per channel. All connected to a 65 inch Sharp Aqous 4K UHD TV. Thanks Polk Audio for a well made product.

    GREAT FOR THE PRICE

    I bought two of these on 06/24/18. They are about 40w larger than the two Onkyo speakers I had in my home theater in the front the past 10 years. They are great. I have a Panasonic receiver with Dolby Atmos and these speakers handle it no problem so far. If you buy these and have the blu ray put on The Greatest Showman and listen to the Never Enough scene which is a slow song with a lot of background music that swells at the end. You will never give these speakers back. Good price and great sound.

    I was looking for a pair of nice sounding stereo speakers for a small space and the T50s are perfect. If you just want some nice clean well rounded sound look no further. These are priced rite and work well with any reciever. They have good low end and clean highs. I was totally surprised when i got them unboxed how small and clean they looked. You cant go wrong with these little guys! If big bass is not what you needed and you just need something for a small space, the T50s will do the job.

    I love these speakers! I had an old pair of Sony floor standing speakers before. They did sound good and had excellent bass. I decided to try Polk Audio because I have always loved their speakers. I'm glad I did. They sound different, but better than my old Sonys. They produce all levels of sound, from bass to mid-range to treble, while still sounding like it is coming from one small area. Sounds like no big deal, but to produce high quality surround sound, it is very important. Very happy with my purchase.

    I already had a 5.1 Polk speaker setup and decided to upgrade the front R/L with these ones and so far so great. Really did help bring some depth into the audio and adds a little bit of oomph into the bass. Sure there’s better speakers out there but honestly doubt there’s anything that can beat the value of these. I did listen to their signature series and if you have the money I’d definitely go for those instead because they are quite amazing.

    For the price, you can't go wrong with these speakers. I bought a pair of these Polk speakers to replace an older set which had an overwhelming bass sound that seemed to drown out the highs and the midrange. These provide a more balanced sound, with good clarity and a much better mix among highs, lows, and midrange. It's nice to listen to music now without an overpowering bass getting in the way. These speakers are also very attractive, with a sleek, modern look. Would definitely recommend.

    After a couple of weeks of going back and forth between this speaker and another speaker that BB sells at the same price and reading numerous reviews I decided to go with these because I didn't like the shape of the other makers center speaker. These speakers replaced a old set of Paramax speakers that I was using and the difference is night and day. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Excellent Upgrade - Perfect Match To My Cabinet

    I have a Yamaha 5.1 speaker set that was ok, but didn't exactly knock my socks off. Decided to fix that, so I shopped around online, found speakers that were affordable, highly rated, with the sort of reviews that made me want to rush out and buy them. These were stand-up models, replacements for the front 2 bookshelf-sized speakers. Took 5 minutes from sealed carton to completion (obviously, cabling was already there), sound magnificent, and as a bonus, exactly matches my Ikea black/brown cabinet.

    Polk Audio has a long reputation for high quality and accuracy but I cannot agree that holds up currently. This is not to say that they are bad products. I purchased these towers to replace low budget Onkyo bookshelf speakers. They perform perfectly fine for an entry level home system...movies and music. They don't carry a certain timbre so you can mix and match with various center and rear speakers.

    Upgraded from a Sony HTIB and there's a world of difference. Paired with a Polk center, Polk surrounds and a Sony receiver they add a whole new depth to music and movies over the old Sony system. Vinyls sound excellent on these speakers. The audio range and clarity is excellent and I often forget I don't have a subwoofer added to the system...yet. These speakers are fantastic and I would highly recommend.

    I picked these up half off during Best Buy's Black Friday sales. Without a doubt there are bigger, better, fancier speakers out there, however I'm very content with the sound that these put out. I wanted to upgrade from the soundbar that I was using and this certainly does the trick. My TV and now my turntable sound much fuller thanks to these speakers combined with the new sub I picked up as well :)

    Great for small rooms

    Great set of speakers for a small room or office. They struggle to fill a medium room and simply should NOT be used in a larger room. If real estate is an issue in your living space, then these are great speakers for such a small foot print. HOWEVER be aware that a powered subwoofer is crucial in order to enjoy music or movies. Without a subwoofer they can feel extremely underpowered.

    Speakers at this price point

    At this price point speakers are really nice. Nice rich deep sound, but lack mid-range. I would recommend these if you have another set of speakers to pair with. I plan I buying a nicer pair of Polks after the holidays when prices drop again something with mid-range. Again, you cannot go wrong with these speakers for the price. Polk Audio is really a great bargain and sound great as well.

    I paired these with a sony str-dh550 and find this to be a nice budget stereo set up. I generally keep the volume around 14 for normal listening and pump it up to 25 for action theater sound. The base from these speakers are not as low as what I could get from my old set up with a sub, but I didn't want that lower hum traveling to other rooms. You can still hear it at 14, but it's a very subtle boom that's only noticeable with music or repeating pumps. Definitely a good buy.

    I love the look of the tower speakers and these match everything with the black finish. i had a budget in mind when i was looking at my 5.1 channel set up so i wanted to stick with that. I could tell a slight difference from high quality speakers and these, but paying twice as much was not worth it. maybe when I can splurge a little on myself, I will upgrade. but these work great if you are starting out, I would recommend polk audio

    Been a Polk fan for years and the T-50s are another fine example of Polk quality. Made in the USA is a nice touch. These speakers are clean sounding, rich and a good match for a living room or den. First used with a Sony STR-DH130 and now an STR-DH190, they are a good match with a 100 watt per channel stereo receiver and will deliver what your amp can throw at it.

    Polk`s been around for some time and one of the big daugs in audio. Upgraded from the Polk R30 floor speakers to these and what a difference. Yeah, they are not the best but for the price they are definitely worth looking at for an option for any system. If you`re a first time buyer of speakers with a budget, then these are the ones to get.

    Polk Audio has made great sounding speakers for years. The T50 speakers are the buy of a lifetime. You could compare these to McIntosh or Revels and be very pleased at the competitive sound these speakers put out. Great high end, low distortion. If you like a lot of bass I would suggest adding a subwoofer.

    I like Polk, never had anything bad to say about them. I have a 5.1 surround sound system and it does the job. I got them for half price so it was well worth it. The one drawback is only the TOP WOOFER IS POWERED! The other two are passive radiators or "dummy" woofers. But they look great and sound good. Great for a beginner audio system.
