Simply perfect

" Bright " with fair bass and enough power to feel room 20x15 feet. Very much satisfied from my purchase. POLK - " speakers specialist " - its true.

Great sound and good Deal!

Polk says you just need 20 watts per channel minimum for these speakers. Most AVRs, by far, will have ample power for these speakers. I run with 85 watts [Pioneer VSX 1020] per channel. It is ample. Most people listen to these in a living room or man-cave or something. No need to power these enough to listen to them in an arena. That's up to you of course. They sound great - I have much better transition to my PSW505 [crossover set to 80] then I did with the RTIA1's I previously used for fronts. Those get moved to surround duty. Great price - entry level but above average sound I think. Anyway I'm quite happy. You can spend more if that makes you assured you have a good speaker but I would not.

Excellent Value

Bought these on sale in store speakers need anywhere from 50 to100 hours breakin before they perform at thier also the your source component and amplifier the better they sound, Audio video recievers are not going to accomplish the kind sound they are capable of on music, get a really good integrated amp unfortunately not available at Bestbuy and listen to these speakers really produce music not noise

Good speakers for a medium size room (approx. 15ft. x 15ft.)

Bought on sale as replacement for DCM Timeframe Speakers (circa 1992) ruined by flood in our basement family room. Very "bright" speakers and pack a fairly good bass punch, but I am used to 15" drivers from JBL CF-150s so I added a 12" powered sub a few days after getting the Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II. They fill our family room in the basement adequately for music, gaming or movies and can still push out decent power if you enjoy loud music. Overall, a great deal but I would wait for a sale since, as already mentioned, they are rather "bright" and I prefer stomach-thumping bass.

Hooked these up to my new Denon amp with a 10 inch Polk sub and all I can say is wow!! Clean and crisp at any volume. These simply sound fantastic. Goodbye hearing lol.

Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II 275-Watt Tower Speaker

sold out couldn't even order them online

  • from Vancouver, BC


I bought this pair of speakers online when it was on sale.. It was said on their post that it will be delivered on a specific day which is great cuz its my only day off from work. The order was processed and it was not past deadline so that means i can get the item free shipping on the said date that was posted. So the courier UPS sent me an email saying that it will be delivered the day it suppose to be. I was very excited about these speakers knowing the positive reviews i have read and in youtube as well. Later in the day i kinda check again the tracking number and was very hopeful to get the speakers the next day as what it promised. Guess what? the date was changed to the next day delivery and i was very very disappointed. I phoned UPS and they said i need to phone Bestbuy which i did. I was talking to their customer service and they do nothing to resolve my problem. All they can say was when it shipped there is nothing they can do about it. It is still more than 24 hrs til the expected delivery date and they cant do anything? what kind of customer service is that. according tracking it is in transit but to when? That promo ad they have about best buy experience is a joke. Get it what you want, How you want it.. its all a joke. They can be more sympathethic to consumers who bought stuff online.I am very frustrated about these

Day 10

Still happy with these speakers. I have had a hard time duplicating the bass I got the first time I used them. They have great highs and mid ranges, and will play serious bass if your system can put out bass. If you want to go without a sub, I'd recommend the RTI A7's

WoW! These sound amazing!

The sound is so clear and clean. The wife's jaw dropped when she heard them for the 1st time. I am using 16 gauge wire (nothing crazy) with banana clips. powering them via a Yamaha RX-A1070. I am very impressed by these speakers! the sound is really amazing.

Day 1

So far - wow, I played some mellow rock, it sounded great. It didn’t sound like there was much bass, so I put on something I knew had bass. My stereo puts out 150w max per channel. I had to turn the volume down really low and the bass was still shaking this cement apartment. If I lived in a house i’d have been worried about the drywall screws were coming out.
