Our take on the Polk Audio PB 60

Polk Audio PB speaker bracket

Written By cap, La. on Sunday, August 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overpriced for what it is. Don't know why I even need it. Am build a new home and this bracket is suggested for new construction. However when I look at the bracket and the speaker intended to mount in it, the need for a bracket is not there. The speaker will install in sheetrock.
Pros:
maybe for a non sheetrock and non-solid ceiling it would work
Cons:
Grossly overpriced

Cheap plastic, expensive price tag

Written By J.B., Salt Lake City, UT on Monday, April 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
For the price this is defiantly not worth it. These couldn't have cost more than $1 to manufacture. The plastic is flimsy and you must be very delicate. I'd recommend only buying these if you have an area where you don't want to cut around post-construction (i.e. aluminum siding). If installing in sheetrock don't bother buying these, instead install a $2 gang box that can be cut out afterwards.
Pros:
Gets the job done, if you don't break them in the process.
Cons:
The plastic is easy to break. Most expensive plastic I have ever bought.

Even though I am doing a remodel and the room is down to the studs, I returned the product because it's really not needed due to the design of the speakers themselves. Also, I can find better things to spend for the price.

Disappointed

Written By Jack, Greenville SC on Monday, February 22, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Based on the photos and price I was expecting metal brackets. This will be my first in wall speaker installation. I was disappointed to get a plastic bracket. I installed the plastic bracket myself, prior to the sheetrock, in a custom built house. The sheetrockers followed me and cut the opening for the speakers beautifully. I have not ordered the speakers yet so, I don't know if the installation will be so simplified by the brackets that I will be glad I spent the money but at this time, this much money for a pair of plastic rings with plastic mounting straps and 4 screws to guide sheetrockers seems a bit high and I am disappointed.

The product doesn't seem worth the money. Very flimsy. One of the brackets broke while hanging drywall. Need something more stable.
