    I bought a pair of these for my back surround sound speakers. I can always hear them when they come on. They are a very nice addition to my surround sound experience. I highly recommend them

    I bought these to use them with my new Onkyo 656. I got 2 pairs of these and they work great as Rear and surround speakers.

    Using the Polks as surrounds in my system. Hooked up using Rocketfish wireless setup. The roar from the football stadium or the jets taking off in TOP GUN sound like you are a part of the action!

    I bought them for surround speakers to go along with my other polk front and center speakers. The sound is seamless with 7.2 dolby while watching movies or listening to music. Good bass mids and highs.

    I had to retire my Panasonic Surround system that I loved. So I bought these Polk Audio Signature Passive 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers, a Polk Audio Center speaker, and a Yamaha Receiver. WOW, the sound is awesome!!

    Best surround sound system I have ever owned. Well worth the money. I would bet my neighbors hate me now because they can also hear the movie we're watching.

    These speakers are great for a home theater. The sound is crisp and lifelike. They feature crisp mid and high range frequencies without distortion at higher volume. I have this set paired with a Polk Signature Passive center speaker a Polk PSW active 10" subwoofer and Polk T15 for rear surround speakers. With my Yamaha 700 watt 5.1 receiver, the surround sound is amazing! These speakers replaced a set of SONY upright speakers and POLK beats Sony hands down!

    These are pretty great speakers for the money. I'm using them as rear surrounds for my 5.2 audio system. They're a little large and I have them mounted on the ceiling slightly behind my listening area angled in toward me. Theyre paired with the S35 matching center and 2 infinity IL50 powered tower speakers (old, but freakin awesome). My receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR686. They do well as surrounds, but really rock when I'm listening to my music in all-channel stereo mode. I really get immersed in the sound (and probably upset the neighbors) Love Polk products, they're a better value than Klipsch if you ask me.

    I replaced t15 s with these...def have more weight to the soundtracks. . very nicely finished . . don't know how they sound for front stage or music. . but my receiver did set them as large. . so I assume they would do just fine up front too

    I purchased a full set of Polk Signature Speakers for (mostly) a home theater setup where we needed to migrate to bookshelf speakers for our fronts. I have always had and prefer tower front channel speakers but in this case had to compromise. I originally attempted to use a set of 4- S15 for 5.1 surround paired with the Polk Signature S35 center and an older infinity sub. The sound was actually quite impressive and timber matched to perfection; however, we had the space and opted to purchase the Polk S20 for our front L/R channel and use the S15 for rear surround. The S20 reach down a bit lower in frequency response (39 Hz versus 50 Hz) and it was actually quite noticeable in our 16x30' living room. Keep in mind the S20 are much bigger. The S15 work great as rear surround and mounted nicely in my existing speaker mounts. I did decide to try the S30 center, I like the slim design of the S35 center and it sounds amazingly clear and crisp, but the lower end of the frequency response of the S30 better matches the S20's (42 versus 53 Hz). I will hook that up when it arrives and make a final determination but expect my final setup will include S20 fronts, S30 center, S15 rear surround, and potentially S15 side channels if I ever get a 7.1 or 7.2 receiver. I am overall very impressed by the Polk Signature series, especially for this price. It seems well designed, has good appearance with either the grills off or on. I considered Klipsch RP series, Definitive Technology SM series, as well as Martin Logan Motion. . and I tried various lines out at a Magnolia store. However, for the price I feel the Polk do well and my home theater experience is great and I would highly recommend this line of speakers. Make sure you watch prices. Best Buy is good about price match and I used that convenience a couple times as the Polk website had sales that were not displayed through Best Buy, but they price matched. The January 15 return policy during the holidays is great and allows time to break in the speakers and try various options.
