Our take on the Polk Audio R15 by Crutchfield's Julie Govan
Here's an economical answer for anyone who's been asking "How can I afford great Polk speakers?" The compact R15 bookshelf will fit in almost any room, and the price is definitely right. But even more attractive is the sound you get from this versatile bookshelf speaker. The 3/4" Dynamic Balance® dome tweeter teams with a 5-1/4" Dynamic Balance woofer, for clean highs and satisfyingly full mids and lows. The keyhole slot on the back of the cabinet makes for easy wall-mounting.
Recommended center channel speaker: Polk CSi20.
Recommended surround speakers: Polk R15.

Priced per pair
I have some older Polk RTA 11 with the silk dome tweeter and these little bookshelf speakers matched up
very nicely. Frequency response is great for this size. If you need a small speaker you wont be dissapointed.

Dynamic Balance: 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.
Composite Woofers: Each speaker has a 5-1/4" Dynamic Balance composite woofer for clean midrange and deep, accurate bass. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a rubber surround.
Silk Tweeters: Each speaker has a 3/4" Dynamic Balance silk dome tweeter for smooth, clear highs.
Bass Port: A front-firing bass port on each speaker gives you extended bass response.
5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Wall Mounting: There is a keyhole slot in the back panel of each speaker. If desired, these can be used to wall mount the speakers by screwing a #10 screw (not provided) into a wall stud. If a wall stud is not available, a wall anchor capable of supporting at least 25 pounds (not provided) may be used.
Frequency Response: The overall frequency response is 60Hz-24kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 65-20kHz.
