Sound is great, clear dialog, better than my previous smaller Bose center speaker. I like the small height, so it fits perfectly under my large TV, under which I did ot have much space.

Pros: Great sound and looks.

Cons: None

Good speaker for the price

Robert from Malibu, California on 11/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this speaker because of it size. I needed it to fit in A restricted space. I'm running the Polk RT series for my home theater & figured that I could EQ the speaker to conform with my other speakers. I've had this speaker in my system for about A week and find that it plays ok with my system but would be better suited to the Polk Signature series it was designed for. I was able to hear the Polk signature series in A full home theater set up and found that this center channel speaker, when used with matched speakers, was pretty darn good.

Pros: The speaker makes the voices come through clearly.

Cons: None

BRIAN from Flagstaff, AZ on 11/25/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was i need of a center channel speaker to compliment an M&K system that I've owned for many years. The installation in my new house prohibited using my M&K center channel...it is too tall. After doing a bit of research I decided on the Polk Signature S35...it turned out to be a great choice. Build quality is excellent, as I've come to expect with Polk. Ans the sound quality blends perfectly with my M7Ks...voices are perfectly balanced in movie and video soundtracks, and musical performance is crisp and clean. Great performance for the money!

Pros: Clean crisp performance. Impeccable build quality.

Cons: None

Great Dialog

Crutchfield customer from Keene, NH on 11/19/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for an upgrade from a Polk CS10 that I've had for about 2 years. Buddy from Crutchfield recommended this center channel, for me it's been great. I always had issues hearing dialog with the CS10, so far this speaker seems to have solved that. Great speaker in my opinion....thanks Buddy!

Crutchfield customer from Lititz, PA on 11/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced an old Cerwin Vega sensurround center with this unit. It's paired up with the 6.5" satellites as fronts. I always had issues with the CV having weak dialogue and yet still somewhat overpowering the left and right channels. The dialogue is much clearer with this unit. Some reviews have said that this is a bit sharp during bass events but my Onkyo 737 seems to have balanced it out nicely as I haven't experienced that yet. The slim profile is amazing. I cleared space on my entertainment unit for my turntable and another receiver which was really the main reason I chose this unit by wall mounting it. Overall, I would recommend it and buy it again.

Clarity for Home Theater

Kerry from Asheboro, NC on 11/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Most effective part of my Polk 6-speaker home theater. Great clarity. I can hear spoken words that were previously garbled on non-existent. Fits directly below the front of my Sony flatscreen and is unobtrusive. I highly recommend this center channel speaker.

Pros: Small footprint with great definition and clarity of sound. Fabulous at picking up low-level discussions that were recorded with poor equipment.

Cons: None

Great sound quality

Crutchfield customer from Fort Myers, FL on 11/4/2018

The Polk S35 replaced a Polk TL2 center channel speaker. The sound clarity was greatly improved for voice when viewing TV and movies. The speaker fits perfectly under my 65 inch HDTV. I highly recommend this speaker for home theater applications.

Pros: Clear vocals , perfect height for tabletop setup

Cons: None

FINALLY added a POLK center channel speaker - Very Happy!!!

WZ from Ctr Moriches, NY on 9/17/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been using the Polk RTI6 bookshelf speakers for years and decided it was time (finally) to add a center channel speaker. I decided on the Polk S35 and I couldn't be happier. My ONKYO TX-NR636 works with the Polks very well and I immediately experienced a HUGE difference in movie and TV dialog. This is to be expected of course, but I was also impressed by how the center channel, when dialed in, enhanced two channel music listening. The S35 is a full range speaker, so you can adjust your stereo's cross-over freq in your "Speaker" settings over a wide range and see what works best for you for TV, discs, vinyl, etc. My wife is excited about finally clearly hearing dialog. I'm very happy with my POLK purchases from Crutchfield - next maybe it's time to finally add a sub!

Pros: - full frequency range allows for a lot of "dialing in" possibilities. - thin, unobtrusive. - wall mountable with just two screws. (a big selling point for me)

Cons: none.

Great sound from the slim design!

Frank from Parker, CO on 9/17/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love this model for the size AND sound. I may not be as picky as others, but at the show floor I listened to models at I couldn't tell the difference between this and the larger model. I really like the slim design as I have little space between my mantel and the bottom of my TV.

Pros: Slim, Sounds just as good as larger model to me, Looks great, Power port

Cons:

Crisp and Clear

Guest from Harrisonburg, VA on 8/23/2018

Amazing addition to my 7.1 surround system. I am driving it with a DENON AVRX-3400. It sounds incredible as a center above my projector screen. It's low profile made it exactly what I needed for my application.

Very crisp and clear sound. A great upgrade to couple with my new Polk ATi 7 towers and a good price as a "scratch and dent" item. Made a big improvement to my system. It also sounds great playing music on the "all channel stereo" setting on my Onkyo receiver.

Polk Audio S35 center channel speaker is a true winner. Very clear & precise vocals. When viewing cable tv broadcast in Dolby Digital this baby shines. The S35 will produce lows down to the mid-50's accurately. Low profile is also a plus.

Pros:

Cons:

Clear sound, Good soundstage

Jaime R from Ossining, NY on 12/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was very skeptical about this speaker and had read all the reviews posted on here saying how great this thing is. I have now had the speaker for 2 weeks and I have to say I am pretty happy with it. The dialogue in movies is undeniably better and more intelligible. Watching movies I can now understand everything that is being said. Even watching TV shows, the speaker has improved the sounds of most telecasts as you can hear much more than you can hear from the tv speakers alone. I have also listened to music and I like the clarity and fullness of the sound. I do want to comment that I was skeptical on the amount of bass the S35 would produce . But I am actually impressed with the amount it does generate, no not the earthquake type sounds but your typical lower end frequencies that accompany tv broadcasts. Together with a nice subwoofer, you have yourself a pretty nice sound experience. I recommend the S35.

Pros: Clear dialogue Improved movie sound Better music and concerts sound

Cons: None yet

Cons: None

Great value

Brett from Pittsboro, NC on 12/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well-built, great looking, extremely versatile, and great-sounding. I am using this as the center channel for my home theater, mounted horizontally above the video display. Provides a very clean, wide sound. It also gives a nice extra kick when used along with the front speakers for music listening. Actually, two of these mounted vertically would make a very fine L/R speaker pair.

Pros: 1. Sounds great. 2. Nice looking/good form factor. 3. Reasonably priced for the quality.

Cons: Wall mounting was a bit of a challenge. The unit has keyhole-style mounting holes that are not flush with the back of the unit. The keyholes are recessed within rows of plastic fins, which apparently add strength to the housing but make mounting difficult.

Good sound for its size.

Dan from Staunton, VA on 12/11/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker puts out good sound for its size. Very nice looking speaker!

Pros: Great looking speaker. Good sound for it's size.

Cons: You can get better sound from a larger speaker for the same price.

Great sound

Ron from Pleasanton, CA on 12/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a great buy. I replaced an older smaller Polk center speaker with this one and am able to hear clearer sounds than before without blasting the volume up.

Pros: Small enough, great price, nice sound

Cons: none

Kirk from Springdale, AR on 12/2/2017

Tom from Bayonne, NJ on 10/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent Slimline Center Channel Speaker. I'm in the process of upgrading and overhauling my 15+ years old home theater / audio setup. Was using small bookshelf NHT Model Super Zero's as center channel. Needed a slimline center to lay flat in front of Plasma TV, this fit perfectly. Dialog is crisp and clear but not overly bright.

Pros: Top notch build quality, slimline, very good value at this price point.

Cons: None

Muddiness No More!

Crutchfield customer from Longmeadow, MA on 9/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very substantial product yielding much better sound than my previous center channel speaker (an old Harmon Kardon unit). I had been pursuing a solution to muddy spoken voices on several shows (most notably a family favorite: "Elementary") and turning up the volume only resulted in louder muddiness! It's handsome and fits nicely in the limited space that I have available for it. Very good sonics at a reasonable price!

Pros: Clarity. Thin profile fits in restricted spaces. 5 way hookup options. Reasonable price.

Cons: Doesn't make coffee.

Crutchfield customer from Salem, VA on 9/3/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound is surprisingly good. The vocals are exceptional. It is does not include a powered sub-woofer like the Definitive Center Channel I bought many years ago but the vocals on movies is better on the Polk (my opinion). I changed because I mounted the TV above the mantel and the Definitive hung over the mantel and blocked the line of sight for the remote. I had to stand up every time to turn on and off the TV. I could not find any device that would make the remote work with the LG OLED TV. The investment in the Polk was a lot less that the Definitive Speaker ( The Def speaker "looks" like the one Crutchfield sells for 699 ) so I worried about a drop off. Yea, no thunderous bass but is that the purpose of a center channel? What the Polk has is sweet and clear mid-range and treble. The Crutchfield rep was right to say I would not see much drop off. This purchase filled my needs without unloading my bank account and the joy of powering the TV on and off from the comfort of my chair - awe. Yep - I'm lazy but I do demand quality sound. Thanks...

John from Lewisville, TX on 6/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great center channel speaker. Integrated well, replacing the center channel speaker hat came with a Polk RM6900 HT speaker system . What really seems to make the difference is the number of speakers contained in the enclosure as dialog that once was hard to discern is far easier to hear. I'm glad I waited for Polk to finally come out with this new Signature line of speakers as I plan to upgrade/replace my existing system in the near future. Definitely a good buy!

Pros: Size Number of speakers Attractive enclosure

Cons: Wish you could get optionally-colored covers to enhance decorative needs

Great center channel!

Martin from Melbourne, FL on 5/23/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Oh heck yeah! I had a Polk CS2 which I never really cared for. I thought the center channel was over rated and not really needed. This speaker is impressive! The size is awesome, I did not have a lot of room for a big speaker. My system sounds amazing! I also added a Klipsch Reference Series R-10SW sub and am I using a Sony STR-DN1070 receiver. I have change my mind about the center channel, I now realize it is the crown jewel of the system.

Pros: Size and amazing sound

Cons: none so far

Very neutral, clean sounding speaker with almost no "cone" sound--hard to tell that they have six cone drivers along with that sweet tweeter. I have recommended it to my son's for their home theater setups.

Pros: Surprising clarity and punch. Very low height.

Paul from Detroit, MI on 4/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed a low profile center channel speaker to fit between TV and fireplace mantel for my 5.1 HT. The S35 worked out great. Nice crisp sound (but not tinny) for dialogue. Great build quality, fit and finish. Blends nicely with Polk OWM5 speakers for front and rear, SVS SB2000 sub-woofer, and Marantz NR1504 receiver. I have a large living room with very high ceilings and this set-up sounds great. Can't play anywhere near full volume, maybe 75% tops.

Pros: Slim size. Sound quality. Build quality.

Cons: Non at this price point.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to replace my Bose VSC-10, just wasn't getting good enough clarity from dialogue. Contacted Wade at customer service and told him my size restrictions for setting the center channel on my entertainment console. He recommended the S35, what a difference in movie voices, and music. If you want a center channel that fits a small height requirement this is your speaker. The price is very fair, and all I can say for the sound is WOW! Thanks Wade!

Pros: Great size for fitting below TV screen, light weight, price is right! Sound is amazing.

Cons: None

Quality speaker in a convenient size!

Been looking for a quality low-profile center channel for a while to fit into our console and finally found the S35. It is a perfect fit and has excellent sound. Not a lot of low-end, but the bass signal is sent to the mains anyway so not a noticeable loss. Sound quality is excellent, both vocals and music. It's nice looking too, very happy with this speaker! Oh and I love the magnetic grill, no more broken posts!

Pros: Great size, great sounding mid-range & vocals.

Cons: Limited low-end response.

Perfect size center speaker

Tom from GA on 3/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this speaker because I only had about 4 3/4" clearance under my wall mounted TV and the mantel. So far I am very pleased. I might need to tone it down a bit with my B&W bookshelf speakers, but it provides clear center channel for movie and TV conversations.

Pros: size and sound are excellent

Cons: none so far

Crisp highs and great midrange

Ken from Sharpsburg, GA on 2/24/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ok, this speaker really does very well as a center. It's compact enough to fit on fireplace mantels, mounts on a wall if needed. The sound is suburb with spectacular highs, and very rich midrange. My Yamaha receiver with show this as a large speaker using the YPAO auto adjustment. I still show it as small to give the subs what they need though. Bottom line is this speaker is a great addition as a center! Don't hesitate to buy it!

Pros: just as the title shows, plus it fits very well in limited space areas.

Cons: Low range is limited, but that's not why you get this speaker.

Polk Has made a Great set of speakers in the signature series !

Awesome Center Channel for home theatre

Jeff from Orlando, FL on 1/23/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been looking for a center channel speaker under 5" in height in order to fit under my wall mounted TV for some time. My old center although a nice Boston Acoustics I have used for years was awkward in placement due to size. So Polk has definitely filled a need to have a very nice sounding passive center channel that fits a low profile dimension that many people require. The good news is only after an evening of use, I have been blown away by the sound, and more importantly the intelligibility that I have been missing. It even sounded better once I re-ran the Audyssey tool on my Denon. It looks and sounds great! I also really like the built-in mounting plates - Polk also provided a cardboard template for mounting. The connection is nice too, there are binding posts for bare wire and you can remove a cap and use banana plugs if you wish. They really thought of everything. I recommend this speaker highly.

Pros:

Cons:

Crystal clear sound!

The Polk Signature S35 Center Channel is a dream to listen to. You can hear the thumb slide down a guitar string as if yi were doing it. Perfect for my home audio and video system! Beautiful finish as well. I look forward to hearing it on every movie or every tune played.

Pros: Sound, fit and finish, looks, size

Cons: none

Steve from Green River, WY on 1/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I enjoy the sound of this product. It is my first center channel speaker for my 5.1 setup, and it really improves my movie experience. I always liked Polk for offering a mid-range product at a low price. This has almost no bass, but that is why you should get a subwoofer too.

Great sound!

Joe from Vonore, TN on 12/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this because it had the thinnest profile of any of the center channel speakers I could find available. (I didn't want to raise my TV). While definitely a lot more money than I originally wanted to spend, I couldn't be happier. For the first time, I'm able to watch movies without having to use subtitles to catch all the dialogue :). It produces extremely crisp sound that sits perfectly balanced in the center of the room. Great looks too, with or without the grill. Excellent speaker. Very pleased.

Pros: Lowest profile of all the center channel speakers I've looked at. Incredible sound and, for me, well-worth the higher cost.

Cons: None

Best Center Channel Speaker

Greg from Lubbock, Texas on 12/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This center channel speaker brings movies and sporting events alive. The sound stage is wide and realistic. It is not boxey like other speakers that I have heard. It adds clarity to vocals and speech like I have never experienced in home theatre before. Visually, it's pleasing and does not distract from decor. I recommend this center channel speaker for all media. Movies, sporting events, music and network programing.

Pros: Musicality, Clarity, Looks, and great value.

Cons: None at all.

A great improvement over my old TL2 center

Dean from Camarillo, CA on 12/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The S35 looks excellent. Before mounting the speaker, I gave it a head-to-head against my old Polk TL2 center. Using banana jacks, I was able to hot-swap the two centers while listening to a variety of music and speech. To be fair, I did not recalibrate my AVR each swap - I left it tuned to the TL2, presumably giving it a slight edge in terms of linearity and relative volume across the sound stage). Music: What I found was quite stunning - in playing music using the "9-channel stereo" DSP setting on my Yamaha A3060, The TL2 sound stage was biased toward the two front speakers - I had expected that this was by design for this specific DSP setting. When swapping in the S35, I found that there was actually quite a bit more center channel content than I had realized. Instead of a subtle center (TL-2), the S35 almost brought the center to parity with the two fronts - in a good way. I listened to a variety of sources across both speakers, including classical, Floyd, EDM, pop, and comedy. The results consistently favored the S35. Movies: I did't repeat my hot-swap exercise for movie viewing, but instead calibrated my AVR for the S35 and tried a few sources of content, including effects-heavy and dialogue-heavy. I never got the feeling that it was anything but accurate - dialogue was very clear and natural. Installation: This speaker isn't necessarily heavy, but I found it a bit tricky to wall mount by myself - get some help to avoid scratchi

Pros: Natural-sounding, compact, looks great on the wall

Cons: Not cheap, but worth it.

Signature S35

Chris from Nashville, TN on 12/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed to upgrade my center channel speaker for my home audio / theater system. The size of the speaker was important to fit into my existing configuration but I did not want to compromise on performance. The Polk Signature s35 met all my criteria and I have been totally happy with the quality of the sound. While I am not an audiophile and cannot afford top of the line the s35 is definitely an upgrade from my old speaker. I recommend this center channel for anyone on a budget.

Pros: Great size, great sound, great price

Cons: None

Low-profile with full sound.

Ben from New York, NY on 11/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like many people, I require a low-profile center channel speaker because I must place it on the media cabinet directly in front of my TV, and until now, I was using a tiny Polk RM8 as a center channel speaker. I just couldn't get over the fact that sound coming from it always sounded weak compared to the rest of the setup, and I knew I needed a more powerful center. Problem is, it didn't exist until this came out, so I got it. First impression was that it is much larger and heavier than it may appear online, which was a pleasant surprise because I could just tell it was going to be a major improvement as I quickly swapped the speaker wires from the old center onto this. Easy as pie. Finally, an all-Polk system. I set the center levels back to zero to match the fronts, brought the crossover down to a reasonable 70Hz, and put on a good movie. Instantly I could hear and feel the difference. It blended perfectly with the sub, so much better than the old RM8 could have ever dreamed of, and for the first time I didn't struggle to hear the dialogue. Clear, full, cutting right through the music, voices were crisp and detailed. The S35 feels like a true full-range speaker, even though it only has 3" drivers. A very solid, capable, low-profile center channel speaker from Polk.

Pros: Only 4" tall, it can be placed in front of a TV. Full range of sound with great tweeter and bass ports. Crystal clear, rich voices.

Cons: Probably not as powerful as a center with 5.5" drivers, but that probably won't be noticeable.

Polk Audio Signature S35 Black Each

Crutchfield customer from Deltona, FL on 10/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well I am giving it a 4 star review because I was expecting more from the S35. It sounded good its well balanced and it could handle plenty of power but the vocals sounded boxy compared to my CS10 with 5 1/4" drivers. Did a few tweaks to make the unit sound to my liking but the 3" drivers just could not achieve that rich vocal tone that I like. The units design looks amazing and its just the right size for many home theater applications. Kind of sad that I returned it to be honest but I gave it a try and its just not for me.

Features

Dynamic Balance Drivers: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion. Using just the right materials enables Polk to eliminate issues that reduce speaker performance and tune out performance-robbing resonances before they occur. Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you're listening to. The Polk Signature S35 center-channel loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance multi-driver array with one 1" tweeter and six 3" woofers.

  • Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S35 center-channel loudspeaker utilizes Polk's newly designed 1" Terylene tweeter to deliver clear and detailed high-end response for improved vocals in movies and music. It will support high frequencies up to 40kHz to perfectly reproduce the latest high-resolution audio files with improved audio extension, earning Hi-Res Audio Certification.
  • Six 3" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofers: The Signature S35 center-channel speaker employs six 3" Dynamic Balance low distortion mica-reinforced polypropylene midrange cone woofers for clean, clear bass, better linearity, and increased dynamic midrange. These mica-reinforced polypropylene midranges feature butyl rubber surrounds, massive ceramic motor structures, and high-temperature Conex fiber spiders that combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.

Power Port Technology: The Signature S35 center-channel incorporates Polk's Power Port technology with two specially designed rear-firing ports. Power Port technology smoothly transition air flow from inside the speaker into your listening area for deep, extended bass impact while minimizing turbulence and distortion. Polk's patented Power Port technology delivers 3dB more bass response than a traditional ported speaker.

Non-Resonant Enclosure: The center-channel speaker's strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. And non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, extra bracing, and a thick front baffle ensure a more lifelike sound. The enclosure's curved edges not only look cool, they reduce standing waves inside the cabinet for less audible coloration. The enclosure features a beautiful black washed walnut finish.

Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille: The Signature S35 includes an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound. The integrated magnets make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the center speaker.

Two-Way Crossover: The center-channel speaker employs a high-performance two-way crossover array (2.5kHz) for seamless blending and optimum time alignment of the tweeter & woofers, creating a lifelike soundstage.

5-Way Binding Posts: The center-channel loudspeaker features 5-way binding posts for a secure connection to your speaker wire. The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The speaker terminals are color coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

Applications: The Signature S35's primary use is as a center-channel loudspeaker for home theater applications. But, it can also be used as a left and right front or rear speaker in stereo and home theater setups. If your AV receiver offers built-in bass management, the S35 should be set to "Small" to filter out low bass frequencies.

Placement & Mounting Options: The Signature S35 can be mounted horizontally as a center channel speaker, under or above your flat-panel TV. You can simply place the center-channel speaker on a table-top or shelf, or wall-mount the center-channel using its integrated keyhole slots on the back. Because the S35 is only 4.1875" tall, it will not block the screen or IR remote of most TVs (the included rubber increase the height of speaker by 0.125"). The speaker can also be wall-mounted vertically using the integrated keyhole slots. A wall-mount template is provided (mounting screws not included).

Note: The speaker cannot be mounted vertically on a table-top or shelf (only wall-mounted vertically). 

Signature Series: Polk designed its Signature Series of loudspeakers to bring a big surround sound and a live music experience into the comfort of your living room at an affordable price. Featuring Hi-Res certification with a new high-resolution Terylene tweeter, redesigned Dynamic Balance drivers, precision crossovers, an anti-diffraction magnetic grille, modern cabinet styling and exclusive Power Port bass enhancing technology, Polk's Signature series loudspeakers deliver crystal clear highs, detailed midrange, and deep bass; plus they look great in almost any decor. The Signature Series by Polk consists of two center-channel speakers, three bookshelf loudspeakers, and three tower speakers.

Note: You may also want to add one of Polk Audio's powered subwoofers (sold separately) for even more bass response.

I was amazed how much improvement there was in the quality of my center channel audio with this speaker. Dialogue is much clearer. Especially low volume [ William  Apr 04, 2018 ]
I sure like mine. It was a great step up from anything I've ever owned [ GREGORY L  Jan 25, 2018 ]
If you need to handle more power but I feel all Polk speakers are excellent so? it is up to the $ again [ Don  Jan 25, 2018 ]
I pair mine with a pair of Klipsch r-28f towers, I am very pleased with the setup. Great sound for a small speaker, nice fit and finish for a budget speaker as well. I use duel 12" SVS subs for the low end. [ John  Dec 21, 2017 ]
I'm sure it's a matter of personal preference, intended use, budget, etc., but I chose a pair of the Klipsch R24F's (because of the small footprint) and a Klipsch R-10SW 10" subwoofer for added bass (for a home theater). I couldn't be happier. The center channel made all the difference in the world; very low profile and dialogue is now crystal clear. [ Joseph  Dec 21, 2017 ]
Any of the Polk Signature series would work best. I have a set of the S15's as my left and right channels, they pair great together. [ Andrew  Dec 21, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Kenny  Feb 16, 2017 ]  Staff
It comes with a removable (magnetic) mesh/fabric cover, says 'Polk' on it bottom center. [ Casey  Jan 24, 2017 ]
Yes [ Terry  Jan 23, 2017 ]
All the Polk speakers come with magnetic speaker covers. Nice design & very convenient. Take on and off as you see fit. [ JOHN P  Jan 23, 2017 ]
Yes of course! [ Don  Jan 23, 2017 ]
Yes, it has a thin cover that attaches with magnets and is easy to put on or remove. The speaker itself looks quite good without it, but the cover makes speaker much more conspicuous, with only small "polk" on the front. [ Noah  Jan 23, 2017 ]
Yes, it comes with a cover. [ Kirk  Jan 23, 2017 ]
Yes [ Steve  Jan 22, 2017 ]
I assume you mean a grille to cover the speakers, and yes it does come with one. [ STEVE  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes it does come with a cover, shown without the cover so you can see what "under the hood" [ Andrew  Jan 22, 2017 ]
If you mean grill, yes it comes with a magnetic grill. Speaker looks good enough to leave it off though. [ Mark  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes. It is black with the polk name on it. The cover is magnetic and easy to remove or replace. [ Peggy  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes, this speaker comes with a cover that easily clips on and off. It's attractive either way. [ Joseph  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes it does. In fact, it's magnetic. [ Mike  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes [ Joseph  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Yes it does. Magnetic. [ Ben  Jan 22, 2017 ]
Just bought one and, yes, it does come with a cover. [ KUO H  Jan 22, 2017 ]
