      Comments about Polk Audio 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater Speaker System:

      I've had them all. Sony, jvc, pioneer, klipsch, rca, kenwood, and maybe a couple of more theater systems I can't think of. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I had to put together a new theater system. I paired these speakers up with a panasonic 7.1 receiver and WOW is all I can say. I just smile the whole time I play it. I have a large living room and have not one complaint. Sport, blu-ray, movies, game shows, music was all thrown at them. PERFECT!!!!!!!! I'm a customer for life!!!!!! Plus I caught them while they were on sale. Now only if they would put the floor standing speakers on sale............

          Comments about Polk Audio 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater Speaker System:

          The product shipped right away and was easy to set up. The sound quality is clear and was very responsive while viewing a blu-ray dvd. I would recommend a good A/V receiver to help reinforce the capabilities of the speakers. Although the subwoofer is small compared to others, it packs a good punch. I would recommend adjusting the tone via the knob in the back as well as using a coxial cable.
