I used to have Polk LSi9s - I thought they were the most amazing speakers. I purchased the R100s and even though I liked their sound I regretted not purchasing the L100s. Eventually, I returned the R100s and purchased the L100s. They may have the same drivers but the cabinets on the L100s are truly exceptional. In any event, they deserve Polk's high end category and I could not be happier. Please don't be put off by some of the reviews that claim they are power hungry. I am using a Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier which outputs 60 watts into 4ohms along with a subwoofer (Martin Logan) in a small den. The Marantz has plenty of power for the L100s in my room. Your mileage may vary. In any event, the Polk L100s are superb - you will not be disappointed. At their current price, you won't find anything that can touch them. Recent speakers I have auditioned in my home - Revel Concerta2 M16, Quad S-1, JBL HDI-1600 - Overall, the Polk L100s are the best of these.

Polk L100

These L100 polk speakers are really special. Ive owned over 12 pairs of stand mounted speakers from 600$ a pair up to 2500$ a pair . These polks have the lowest base response of the lot . They sound like sealed speakers on the bass response, but do need at least 18-24 inches off a back wall to tame the bass . They are very neutral, and similar to a studio monitor, but with a giant soundstage. Most all my sacd , xrcd and blu ray audio discs sound live , and the speakers completely disappear into a soundstage. The L100s need a bit of toe-in and ABSOLUTELY need to be driven in 4 Ohms . Your amp needs to be able to push out 80w to max of 160w in 4 Ohms to make these incredibly fast speakers come alive . They are loud and full sounding at a price point that beats all but one pair of pricy dynaudio bookshelf speakers Ive owned . An audio system is completely the sum of it's parts , but theses polk L100s will be with me for quite a long time . When using a bookshelf speaker no matter the price . they all have their limitations , but these polks are near perfect for a mid-level and audiophile who also loves EDM/dance , rap , as well movies ( bass is deep ) . Just pair these L100 with a quality amp , source and let the smiles begin . Only downside is there plus side , and that is they are neutral. that means your bad recordings will be exposed as awful and your top engineered discs will sing with a real natural sound that is hard to explain . outside of

Pros: At this size and price they punch into double their price category. Polk is back , and it is about time . Sandy Gross is a Legend as is there no better name for these speakers . Thank you Polk for bringing back my youth and the honor of owning Polk

Cons: They need power and expose your music , so these L100 are for Audiophiles or people who want to start collecting properly engineered music . which is what this is all about anyway. If those are the cons . then it's probably in your music or wimpy amp if these speakers don't blow you away ?

Brilliant imaging compared to my older entry level polk bookshelf speakers. These require a lot of power so be selective with your choice of amp.

Polk perfection

Had to replace my lsi9's and just as happy with the legends. Crystal clear polk quality. Ive been a polk owner for 20 years.

Pros: Size, looks and performance.

Cons: Power hungry. Not really a con. Feed them properly and you will be rewarded accordingly.

Wonderful sound in a small package

I had to replace my Polk speakers that I've had for years, and I decided to upgrade by getting the next level up. I am so happy that I did. These speakers sound fantastic. I don't have the space for floor standing speakers so the smaller bookshelf speakers were my best option. These have clear highs, beautiful mids, and fat, round bottom end. Just the way I like it. I would also like to commend the staff at Crutchfield. They called me to make sure that I had the right kind of amp to power them properly so that I could get the most out of them. I appreciated that so much. Once they confirmed that I did have the right power they were shipped that day and arrived by the end of the week. I will definitely buy from them again.

Pros: Compact Big sound Well balanced

Cons:
